When i first got this paint pot i loved it! It was creamy, smooth, pigmented, and it made my eyeshadow last longer. But as months passed, i noticed it became so dry that whenever i use it on my lids my eyeshadow won't stick anymore and it was hard to blend. I didn't leave the lid open and would always close it tight so i was disappointed that the product dried just half way of using it.
I love how it neutralizes my eye lids so the color I apply over-top is more true to pan and looks more opaque! It makes blending so much easier and resists creasing. When I add UDPP underneath, I can apply my eyeshadow at 8 in the morning and it will stay put with the occasional touch-up until 11 at night!
I just wish there was a more sanitary way to apply the paintpots and they came in a smaller size for less $ because I feel like it will dry up before I finish it.
I've had this baby for nearly a year now (probably should replace it), and it's a godsend if you have oily lids. Soft Ochre is creamy and matte in the jar, but after spreading it on your lids--easy to apply and blend, by the way--it settles down to a dry, matte finish. Soft Ochre is a "light" nude shade, which is just slightly brighter than my NW20 skintone. This paint pot works best as a cream base for eyeshadow.
So I've never used any paint pot aside from this, and I've only used this as a makeup base as it shows up a really nice light tan color on my skin, but I love it. This paired with my Urban Decay primer potion and no makeup is coming off of my eyes or creasing for the next 24 hours.
