I recently took my friend shopping after she told me that she was looking for a cream eyeshadow. At first I suggested the affordable Maybelline Colour Tattoo (which I love) but she finds that the range of natural shades were a little bit limited and they were just not what she was looking for. So as an awesome friend that I am, I dragged her to MAC in Nottingham where we spent forever swatching everything. In the end it came down to Indianwood and of course Vintage Selection. Although, after trying this out, I have a feeling that I will probably be picking up Indianwood sometimes soon.
MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Vintage Selection is described as "frosted dirty peach", although I can't say that I notice much of the peachy tone when I swatched it. On me, I'd describe it as more of a nudey brown champagne. I think of it as love-child of Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze and Pink Gold. I personally love it because it looks ever so naturally elegant on the lids. However, I find that MAC Paint Pot seems to have a creamier and softer consistency compare to the Maybelline's version. Not going to lie but the consistency and texture of the MAC Paint Pot was something that persuaded me to purchase it in the first place because I went to MAC planning on not getting anything (yeah...as if that ever happen). Due to its creamy texture, it applies like a dream and super blendable. You can use it as a base as well as a shadow. I couldn't resist it because it just feels so luxurious!
I love MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Vintage Selection because of how it applies so smoothly over my lid which can be used lightly for a sheer natural look as well build it up for an intense look. It's just very versatile because it can be used as an eye primer too! Whilst using it, I haven't noticed my eyeshadow creasing. Even though, it is long lasting, I'm not sure how the Pro Longwear range compares to their standard Paint Pot as this is my first Paint Pot. MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot is indeed very long lasting but I don't find that it's particularly hard to remove with a good make-up remover.
