MAC - Paint in Bare Canvas

***Pictures and Swatches Coming Soon!***

I tried this as a primer on the recommendation of a MAC makeup artist since I have so much trouble with creasing. I was new to MAC and didn't know about the paint pots. Now that I've tried both, I don't really know why this was recommended! It's less dense than the Paint Pots and does even out skin tone, but I found that it doesn't do much to help with the longevity of my shadow. It dries so fast that the shadow doesn't cling to it as it does with the Paint Pots and other primers I've tried.

Also the packaging is quite frustrating because like some medical squeeze tubes, if an air bubble gets trapped, this sometimes keeps on coming out whether you want it to or not. This leads to a lot of wasted product that you can't get back in the tube and also can't store in a travel container for use later since it will dry out after a few hours.

Overall I wouldn't recommend these unless you absolutely love one of the colours and can't find it in another formula. Stick to the Paint Pots.

Packaging: 2/5
Product quality: 3.5/5
Worth the price? Not really.
Would I purchase again? No, I don't think so. 

Cruelty-Free? Yes - appears on PETA's Cruelty-Free list.
Where to find it: MAC in store and online.
