one of the best

I absolutly love it is perfect on its own, is amazing as a base for eyeshadows, is really easy to blend, just have to work fast because it set and then nothing can move it, i love the packaging is not cute but is very functional, usually with cream eyeshadows because of the packaging tends to dry and become useless but this one is perfect cannot get dry, I wish they made more colors, totally recomend this

Was it just me?

Or did anyone else have this problem? When I opened mine, instantly, all the product started coming out of the tube and I couldn't stop it. I put half of it into a small container and it stopped but I ending up wasting a good chunk of product. Besides that, I love it! I use it constantly as a base. I love using it to build on different shadows and pigments, especially for smokey eyes. I definitely want to get more.

I actually bought this when i was about 15! I fell in love right away! its a really good product . i used to use it as a base & also just to have a little color on my lids when i didnt want to have a heavy look

I have extremely oily lids, and this is the only thing that holds up for a full day and even into the night. I also really like that it is coloured, so it evens out any discoloration on my lids, while not being too shimmery. Both powder and cream shadows blend very easily over it. One tube can last me over a year. It's pretty amazing stuff!

Favorite color! MAC Paints are easy to apply, very smooth non drying to lids. You can wear it alone on top it off with your favorite shadow. I love to wear BAMBOOM all over my lids and deepen the outer v with a dark plum shadow and call it a day! Very good product to invest in although packaging could be better. You only need a tiny bit.

Messy but lovely :)

I personally love the mac paints, they are a fantastic base or can also be great on their own as a shadow since they won't fade. Just be sure to check that the cap is screwed on well... I had a bit of a chunky mishap with my favorite color :(

Great product, horrible packaging!

I love this. I got it in Sublime Nature which is a perfect match for my skin tone. It makes a great base, doesn't crease and can completely replace any eye primer.

However, I don't like to use this too often because the packaging is horrible. It's a soft metal tube (like that of paint) and if you press on it even a little too hard, too much product comes out. If you press slightly, a small amount will come out but then in a few moments, more will come out.

I debated putting all of the product into another container, but I was afraid it might make it dry out quicker.

I think this is my favorite base of all time. I even like this better than UDPP, Too faced shadow insurance. This never creases and I miss when they had more colors! I have it in mauvism and that is the prettiest purple! I also have it in flammable.

I have a brown paint, I forget the name. I really like it and used it all the time. It's nice a creamy, you just have to work a bit fast at blending it because it dries pretty quick. I also don't like that you have to squeeze the tube very lighty or else you lose a lot of product that goes to waist.

Good base for eyeshadows - gets messy

I have this in three colors (yes I"m a mac junkie!). Base Light, Mattisse, and Shimma. They go on pretty smooth, but can sometimes get slightly chunky. It really does help eyeshadow stick to your lids. My complaint is that the little bottles get deformed after squeezing it daily, and the cap never seems to screw on properly!

The colors are great, but after I'm done using these, I'm definitely moving onto the paint pots for less mess.
