I love this paint pot so much! At first I kind of thought it may be too warm-toned on my already warm skin tone, but this is one of my fave everyday shades to wear. It’s so easy to apply; I like using the real techniques base shadow brush for application, and using the MAC 217 to blend any edges. It lasts all day at the office on my very oily eyelids, which is just the best quality about it. Amazing!
Vintage Selection makes for a great simple, everyday look. I like to use my fingers to apply this and to blend it. This applies very easily and lasts all day. It is also buildable, but I feel it looks and lasts best when just one layer is applied. I have had no problems with this drying out and I have had mine since it was released in the permanent collection. The product is also easily accessible in the pot, unlike brands like Bobbi Brown where I have to use a brush just to get the product out.
This particular pp color surprised me a little by how much shimmer it has in it. It’s not terrible but I just didn’t expect it. It applies well, but the shimmer can be a little more than desired, especially if you wanted to use this as just a wash of color on your lid (might vary depend on your skin tone). Worth having in your collection if you don’t mind the shimmer. It applies better than some of the past pp (especially shimmer heavy options like Let’s Skate). I didn’t experience any fallout from the shimmer.
The long-wearing, highly pigmented eye color goes on creamy and dries to an intense, vibrant, pearlized finish. Seamlessly covers without weight or caking and blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners.
