MAC Paint Pot Soft Ochre
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My first eyelid primer was Urban Decay's Primer Potion, and while I liked how it made my eyeshadows more vibrant, I felt that the texture was a bit too moist for my liking (I naturally have oily lids). My friend recommended I try a MAC Paint Pot instead; my first choice was Soft Ochre. It's now my go to eyelid primer, here's why:
1. It has a smooth, matte finish. For people with oily lids, this paint pot works like a dream. Be warned that you will need to warm up the product first, but once you do, it effortlessly sweeps over the lids with little tug. I find that the matte finish also makes it easier to apply and blend eyeshadow.
2. It's a good base for neutral eyeshadows. Soft ochre is the perfect neutral shade for my eyelids, and helps intensify brown, tan, and other types of neutral eyeshadow colors.
3. You can also wear it alone as a way to brighten up your eyes. I've never really like the concealer method for making my upper eyelids look...
My first paint pot ever was in the color bare study. I still am in LOVE with it. It's creamy and goes on so easy, all while ensuring my eye shadow doesn't budge. Soft ochre, however, isn't of the same consistency. I wanted a matte color for those days that I don't want any shimmer on my eye, and this seems to match my skin tone pretty well. While it does the job at making sure my shadow stays put, it just doesn't go on as smoothly as I would like. I'm not sure if I just got a defective pot of this (I bought mine at a mac counter) or if its just this color, but I hardly ever reach for it. So in my opinion, get a different shade, as it will go on MUCH easier.
A light colour that goes on so well over the eye lids and does not crease at all. Serves both as an eyeshadow primer and I can even wear it on its own without looking too overdone!
