MAC Paint Pot | Let Me Pop

If you saw my latest haul post you'll be aware that my recent random obsessive hunt for the perfect copper cream eyeshadow resulted in me adding this little beauty to my basket- or in this case, black and white MAC bag. As a former student only just out of uni it feels very strange buying this sort of high end extravagant item, but now I'm working full time I figured I could let myself have one luxury item a month which should hopefully curb my urge to splurge. Well, we can hope can't we? But anyway back to this MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in 'Let Me Pop'...first of all I am literally crazy about this colour! I got so stuck in a rut with my muted golds and browns (Any fellow 'On and On Bronze' obsessives out there?) that I was desperate to spice things up a bit and it seems popping this shimmery gold/pink toned pure copper all round the eye is just the way to do this. It's the perfect look for both day and night time and really brings out the blue in my eyes. As with most cream eye shadows application is a dream- I use my fingers or Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush on the lid and Real Techniques Accent Brush to take it under the waterline and the creamy formula blends like a babe then sets perfectly to last all day long without creasing. And I mean all day long! The only niggle I have is the pigmentation which is slightly on the weaker side meaning you have to build the colour up quite a bit if you want more than a sheer sweep or layer it with powder shadows. I could also do with a little less glitter running through the copper (Although saying that I'm now super prepared for party season!). Overall though I'm very happy with this month's high end purchase and at a rather reasonable £15 I think you'd actually struggle to find a drugstore dupe for much less money. The sleek glass pot packaging also reflects the price in the classiest way and as long as you keep the lid shut tight this should last a very long time. Needless to say I'm now eyeing up 'Painterly' along with a custom powder palette. Maybe it's true that once you go MAC you never go back...
