MAC Paint Pot Rubenesque

Hey everyone, today I am reviewing a beautiful paint pot from MAC. Rubenesque is a permanent shade.

This paint pot is really pretty. This has a peachy–champagne color with golden shimmer. It does show some pink reflects. This works really well on my oily lids.
This Paint Pot this has no glitter (so no gritty feel). It is soft to touch and blends pretty well.

Rubenesque shows up so differently on each skin tone. On darker skin tone, it transforms into a golden tan shade and on fair it gleams a lovely peachy shade.

This Shade is universal and suits the majority of people. It is great for thdays where you don’t have enough ti do a more methodical look.  

On the Website:
MAC describe its paint pots as “A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. 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”.

How I use it?
It works really well for an all-over wash of color.
It can also be used as an eyeshadow base.This makes the gold, berries and bronzes more vibrant. Usually I pair it with MAC gold & expensive pink.

I also love wearing this with greens and corals during summers. 

Pairing it with MAC crosswires or Revlon's coral reef gives it an amazing beachy look.

Rubenesque can also be used on cheekbones. It gives such a beautiful glow.

It has black lid on the heavy glass jar.

It is soft and blends really well. It has almost iridescent shimmer
The formula is creamy. It dries down quickly without creasing, but gives enough time to blend the edges.
The color payoff is really good and it goes on the lids opaque after the first layer. This can be layered for achieving more intensity.

It last for hours without smudging, creasing or fading.
It has no fallout.
This can be used as a shadow base or an eyeshadow alone.
It has no glitter so there is a less chance eye irritation.


Retail Price: $17.5 (for 5g/0.17oz)
