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.
