Another one of my cult favorite products by Mac. I use this color almost with every look and it never disappointed, I own many other colors as well such as the newer stormy pink,Taylor grey and about 7 others. Great alone or to pump up shadows in the same color families xxoo
I am absolutely in love with MAC paint pots, the biggest problem that I have is that everything creases on me. Most primers don't work worth of anything. The worst primer for me is UDPP. It does nothing, in fact I think it makes the problem worse. That said, MAC paint pots are the only things that keep my eye shadows on and keep them from creasing, they are like cement, in a good way lol. I could never, not have my soft ochre paint pot. I love it over painterly because I love the yellow undertone of is whereas I dislike the pink of painterly. and I also love that there's no shimmer or glitter in it.
had to mircowave it
This isn't a bad review, but you may find this helpful! This was great when I first tried it. Then as I kept using it, it was a little dry. It was so hard to blend and it kept creasing. To make it creamier, I had to add a couple drops of Visine/contact solution and then microwave it for a few seconds. It's creamier now and I can blend it a little easier, but I still need to work hard to blend it just right.
I love my paint pot in Soft Ochre. It stays put on my oily lids all day! I use it without primer underneath. Also, the color I have makes for a good transition color. I use it a lot when I do a smokey eye because it softens the area between the eyeshadow and my skin. Totally love this product, it lived up to my expectations and then some!!
One of my favorite primers ever!
I've been using MACs soft ochre paint pot for a few months now and I LOVE it!! This is a great base for bright colors and really makes my eye shadows show up true to color. It keeps my eye shadow from creasing all days long. The longest I've worn it was for about 9 hours and my makeup still looked like I had just applied it. Definitely recommend for those with oily lids.
Holy Grail eye primer
This shade is perfect for yellow or warm undertoned people! I use this all over the lid to prime and cancel out any darkness. It dries to a powdery finish and makes the shadow look more vibrant. I like this more than other primers because of the color payoff. A little goes a long way and will buy this again and again!
I think this color is just as good as Painterly. The only difference is Painterly has a pinkish undertone and Soft Ochre is more on the yellow side. It works just as good though and looks just as flattering and holds up your eyeshadow for a few hours. You need some type of primer anyway, so why not consider getting this product?
this is the best thing that has happened to any makeup, i use this product virtually on any eyeshadow palette that i use and it works even for the cheapest drugstore palette. i cant do without it, i have the paint pot in bare study, groundwork and painterly. love love love them all
Absolutely LOVE this as an eye shadow base. I was debating between the painterly and this one and the MAC makeup artist suggested this one. Its more of a yellow undertone and painterly was more of a pinkish. Absolutely love it - covers any veins or discoloration on my eye and holds my shadow on ALL day!!
I have Rubenesque and Soft Ochre and both are lovely as bases. Rubenesque is good enough to wear alone.
Price: $22.40 CAD
Rubenesque- light gold, iridescent shimmer
Painterly- light peachy beige
Soft Ochre- pale yellowed beige
These help my e/s stay on for the entire day and last all day on their own as well. Painterly and Soft Ochre help e/s colours look more vibrant. I recommend P for light to medium skin tones and SO for fairer skins
