The Paint Pot in question is Genuine Treasure, described on the website as 'reflects antiqued gold', and retailing for £13.50.
This is my first ever paintpot, believe it or not. I am definitely more of a powder shadow fan, but I really do love the texture of this shadow, and it has great staying power. It looks beautiful on it's own or dabbed over another smokey eye look. I always apply eye primer before applying my shadow and I do think this makes a difference to the staying power.

All in all, a very positive first experience with MAC's Paint Pots. I am always a bit dubious of cream shadows because they have a tendancy to crease and look abit 'bleurgh' by the end of the day, but I think i've found a winner here. Also, I believe an eyeshadow base is 100% necessary for these kind of formulations. I wore this for over six hours the other day and it was still crease free and stuck fast by the time came to remove my make up. What do you think of Paint Pots, or for that matter, any other creamy based eye products?
