Hey everyone,
It's time for another review and this time it is going to be on MAC's "Rubenesque" Paint Pot.
I purchased this on Friday and have used it three times since then. Due to my over-excitment in regards to this product i have decided to do a review already!

Firstly, i can tell that this is going to last me FOREVER, you need the tiniest bit and a little goes a very long way.

It goes on smooth and the pigmentation is even-exceptionally stops shadows from creasing and allows colour to "pop".

I was watching juicystar07 and she said in her "MAC Starter Kit" video that in Summer she wears it all over the eye without anything else and it's perfect. I can definitely see myself doing this as Australia gets very hot in Summer and i won't have heavy shadows melting all over the place.

"Rubenesque" is a gold with peachy undertones and pinkish glitter reflects. A GORGEOUS Summer colour that i am so excited to use!

Paint Pots come in little 5g glass jars with M.A.C printed on the side. The lids are an opaque black that unscrews no-fuss. Underneath the lid is a plastic dome with foam inside for extra protection when sealed. Made in Canada but created in Toronto.

For Australians, Paint Pots can be purchased at your nearest MAC counter in department stores (Myer and David Jones) for $35 (a little more than an eyeshadow which i think is reasonable).

Yes, i would purchase this product again. Maybe not anytime soon because i think that Rubenesque is a very versatile colour that can be base to any colour shadow so you probz only need one paint pot in your collection.

My question to you is what is your favourite MAC Paint Pot and if you don't own one, would you purchase one?

I hope this was helpful

I have in coral crepe and i'm totally loving it.It is a pale coral with a lot of shimmer and i totally agree with you about wearing it alone to give a subtle hint without the burden of shadows.
Spare a moment and check my blog.
