Review: MAC Paint Pot in Stormy Pink

Do you ever find that you have so much make-up that it takes you months to get around to using a product? That's what I've found with this MAC Paint Pot. My sister bought it for me for my birthday (over 3 months ago) and I've only just started using it. And boy, am I glad that I did.

I am a huge fan of the MAC Paint Pots. Painterly is my holy grail. I wear it pretty much every day. I wear it on it's own, I wear it with liquid eyeliner, I wear it underneath eyeshadow.. I've owned Painterly for nearly two years now and I'm only just halfway through the pot so they are definitely a fantastic value for money. I also adore Groundwork. Groundwork is the perfect mid-brown base, perfect on it's own or underneath other eyeshadows. I could sit and rave about these all day.

My sister bought me Stormy Pink. Stormy Pink is a lot less pink than I thought it would be. I have to admit and say I hadn't heard of it before so I wasn't sure what to expect when I opened the box but I was pleasantly surprised at what I pulled out. Stormy Pink is a lovely muted lavender that has a bit of a grey base to it. It's a very pretty shade, one which I like to wear on it's own as an all over flush of colour.

I usually apply these MAC Paint Pots with my fingers as I find it much easier than with a brush. The Paint Pots literally last all day. I can apply it in the morning and just know that in the evening it will still be there.  The one little niggle that I have with these Paint Pots is the glossy top layer that they start off with. You wipe your finger over it, expecting a creamy, opaque, bold colour and you get a very dry, weak shade. I don't know what's in the top layer but you definitely need to work at it to get the bold colour through.

Overall I love MAC Paint Pots and I adore Stormy Pink. It's a shade like no-other and it looks either perfect on it's own or with an eyeshadow applied on top. They're creamy, easy to apply and perfect for those days when you want to wear eyeshadow but can't be bothered faffing about with different brushes. Definitely recommend.
