Review // MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Vintage Selection

I cannot speak highly enough of the MAC Paint Pots. Honestly, they are my favourite MAC products. I own so many in so many different shades, I don't think I go a day without using one in one form or another. If you aren't sure what they are then they are like a dreamy cream based eyeshadow that you can either wear on its own for a flash of colour or as a base to another eyeshadow. Today though, say hello to the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Vintage Selection. 

Vintage Selection is described as a frosted dirty peach and I can see where they are coming from. It is a beautiful shade of warm peach with a gorgeous champagne coloured shimmer running throughout. It is incredibly easy to wear due to its soft shade but with any of the Paint Pots, you can quite easily build up the colour by applying a few more layers to the eyelids. I like to apply mine with either my fingers or with my Zoeva 142 Brush

What MAC say about their Paint Pots:
A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. The next generation of a popular MAC formula, Paint Pots maintains all the intense traits of its inspiration. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with MAC shadows and liners. Available in satin, cream, frost and pearl formulas.

I have a whole list of reasons as to why I love MAC Paint Pots. They last all day, they do not crease in the slightest, they are creamy and ridiculously easy to apply, they come in a variety of different colours and finishes and they ensure the most perfect base for other eyeshadows. Oh, and they last forever. I am sure I have mentioned it before but I bought the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly a good few years ago and it is still serving me well. (Let's ignore it's shelf life, okay?!)

I think it is worth noting that Vintage Selection isn't any old Paint Pot, it is a Pro Longwear Paint Pot. If we were to delve into it by it's title, I would hesitate a guess that this is because it is supposed to last longer than the regular Paint Pots, although they don't differ in price or packaging. In fact, the only difference between them is one ingredient! That said though, I have found that both the regular Paint Pots and the Pro Longwear Paint Pots both last just as well as each other on the eyelids so I wouldn't read into the fancy title too much.
