MAC Paint Pot - Constructivist

My pick for today is MAC Paint Pot in the shade 'Constructivist'.  The paint pots are one of MACs biggest sellers but I have to admit this is my very first one!   

The paint pots are great value for money, even if they do cost £14.50 - they last ages and the colours are so rich and the creams so velvety, that you only need a smidgen at a time.

Constructivist is a lovely, slightly shimmery, deep velvety brown with soft red undertones - this shade, in my opinion, would suit every skin tone - a real all rounder.   It goes onto the lid creamy but soon dries.  

Before purchasing MAC Constructivist, I did avoid cream eyeshadows as I felt they just creased quickly however, this on its own, i'd say will last you  half a day before a touch up - if used with a primer, all day.  I do recommend always using a primer as it provides a good base for your shadow.  This shade is also very build able and I like to put it on in layers.  

I particularly like this shade because although it is extremely rich - it isn't too over powering and it makes my eyes look very soft.   

I have 2 more paint pots on their way so watch this space.  I think they will also complement  constructivist for a nice creamy smokey eye. 

What are your thoughts on the paint pots and do you own this one?



  1. Gorgeous shade! It's so rich and lovely. I haven't tried any paint pots yet, but of course I've heard the raves!
