MAC Paint Pot: Painterly & Constructivist

I've been wanting to try the MAC Paint Pots for a long time. I need a primer to make the eyeshadows stay longer as I have oily lids. And I've seen many reviews about this product and all of them said they're great!
I got 2 colors: Painterly and Constructivist

It came in glass jar which I think is pretty big. Contains 5g of product and a small amount goes a long way so you don't really need to use much, a jar would last a long time. I'd say it is worth the price.

It can be used as a base or eyeshadow primer, or simply as a cream eyeshadow. It's not too creamy but it's easy to blend (no idea how that's possible but this is seriously very easy to blend!) and the best part is it dries like a powder and the staying power is amazing!

So the first one is Painterly:

It is a matte nude beige color, perfect as a base or primer, because it will make the color pop a lot more. I cannot tell you how many times I've seen people use this on Youtube. Everyone swears by it, some people with super oily lids cannot make eyeshadows stay long, unless they use this as a base.
And I totally agree! I've been trying so many primers and so far this is the best one I've tried. My eyeshadow stays much much longer and it didn't crease. Yaaayyy!!

And the second one is Constructivist:

It's a metallic dark brown that lets you create a smokey eyes effortlessly. I don't usually put shimmer on the lids, but this is not too shimmery, it gives a nice glow to the eyes.
I use this on its own almost everyday. It's super quick and easy! But you can also use this as a base to make a color look deeper which is so cool!

However, I'd say this paint pots works better if you put eyeshadow on top of it. It can literally last all day.
I use this with Clinique eyeshadow to work and when I got home it still stays there, it didn't budge.

Here's a comparison on both colors:

I absolutely love this product and would recommend this for those with oily lids! Wish they come in much more fun colors!
