Mac paint pots in soft ochre is the best eyeshadow base I have used till date . It helps in giving an even base and also increases intensity of any eyeshadow . My eye makeup stays intact for long period of time whenever I apply this . Soft ochre is a nude shade , the texture is creamy therefore application is quite easy .
This was a limited edition paint pot from the Macnificent me collection and it is very beautiful muted medium dark gray with cool undertones having a satin finish.It has a smooth,very creamy consistency with very good rich colour pay off and pigmentation.It has very good blendability and is very smooth to work with and spreads easily on the eyelids.It has a very good staying power on the eyelids too (even on my oily lids) of 6-7 hours with minimal creasing.You can use it as an eyeshadow or even as a light gray liner it works well in every way. Must grab shade if it comes out again in any Mac collection.
It is a medium muted navy blue with strong purple undertones with purple and blue sparkles.It has a rich ,creamy consistency with very good payoff and is very pigmented when used as an eyeliner.As an eyeshadow it blends with quite an effort as it is very dense and it difficult to get an even coverage with this ,so i use it as a base for my smokey eye looks and even as a base for the darker dazzleshadow colours i have.I found that as an eyeliner i does not seem to budge from the eyes and does not transfer to my upper eyelids (which most liners do) and lasts whole day while as an eyeshadow it creases in 3-4 hours.If you have a blue eyeliner i feel that you do not need this as you can have the same effect with that too until and unless you have very oily eyelids like me.
I heard alot about this product so finally decided to buy it and after using it i was totally satisfied. I really like it....it makes your eye shadow stay in place all day long. I purchased the shade soft ochre and it is perfect for my skin shade, if you also have a yellow undertone then this will perfectly match. It hides all the pigmentation on the lids and creates a clean canvas for your eye shadows and the eyes really look amazing. I have seen a huge difference by applying it. Its truly a life changer will definitely recommend.
I had purchased this shade when it was released with Mac's Macnificent me! collection.It is a medium taupey brown shade with silver shimmer particles in it.It has smooth creamy consistency with sheer to opaque buildable coverage which results in pearly silvery sheen on the eyelids. Because of the presence of shimmer in this shade i often use it as an eyeshadow when i am in a hurry to do my makeup following it up with a mascara.It has good wear time even on my oily lids (6-7 hours) before it creases. It is very similar in colour to Mac's VIntage selection paint pot and Bounce around soft serve eyeshadow from Mac and is now a part of the permanent line.
These gems from the MAC's line of paint pot are called: Painterly and Soft ochre. Both of them are in the Mac's permanent line of eyeshadow bases called Paint pots. While Painterly is beige with strong pink undertones (which mostly suits cooler toned complexions) , Soft ochre with a beige with very warm yellow undertones (which makes it suitable for most Indian skin tones). They basically serve to provide a base for the eyeshadows to stick to and also aids in enhancing their longevity and brings out the pigment in them. On my oily lids it creases with 4-5 hours if i don't set them. For very oily lids i recommend setting them with translucent powder which makes them last all day without creasing or use an eyeshadow primer.
I have this particular shade in Bare study it is light champagne gold coloured creamy base with very fine gold glitter.It serves as a good base for eyeshadows and also can double up as an eyeshadow.It is very pigmented and a little goes a long way. On my oily lids it creases with 4 hours without an eye primer but when used with an eye primer it lasts whole day long.I dont think you need a glittery primer before eyeshadows as the effect is easily masked by the glitter eyeshadows and same effect can be achieved with Painterly(light pink undertones) or Soft ochre(warm yellow undertones) paint pots which are just cream eyeshadow bases from MAC.
