Dried up paint pot!

I did end up going back to MAC and purchasing the Rubenesque paint pot (and it's GORGEOUS!), but when I got home, I was getting ready to wrestle that baby open since paint pots are sealed TIGHT and I noticed that the cap was already loose and twisted open... So I opened it and lo and behold, a dried up paint pot. *TEAR* So I just wanted to show you guys what a dried up paint pot looks like. Don't let this happen to you! Then I took it back to the store. I didn't know if I wanted to exchange it or just return it, but I ended up just exchanging it since it's a really pretty color and my fav MA was there. Here are some swatches! I can't wait to wear it :)

Oh and P.S. for Erica (and anyone else who's wondering lol)--The Moss Scape paint pot did crease on me, but I don't know if it's because I wore them on really sunny days where I was sweating a lot. It only creased in the inner corners of my eye though where my eyelids crease to begin with even with no makeup on. However, I wore it today (and the weather is freezing cold) and it has not creased at all on me yet and it's been 9 hours. I think I'd only recommend this if you're going to use it as an eye shadow as well and not just as a base because if you just need a base, I'd suggest UDPP or some other kind of primer. Hope this helps!


Dried up paint pot :( The MA saw this and was like "Holy moly!" Haha


Brand spankin new paint pot!
It looks gold in the swatch, but it's also very peachy, pink, and shimmery! It's like a duo chrome color. It's beautiful! :D

hahaha that's so funny how it plopped out of the pot. at least you were able to exchange it. but i loooooooove rubenesque. that's what i pretty much reach for as a base.

Erica said...

wow your right! Rubenseque is a really gorgeous color. I'm glad you posted up a pic of the dried up paint pot. lol. It's good that they let you exchange it =] and thanks for letting me(and anyone out there =])know on how well the paint pots worked against creasing for you. do you use your finger tips to apply or a brush? I'm just curious on how most people would apply their paint pots =] lol

paint pots crease on me if i use it by itself. i have to use UDPP under it, and it'll usually last longer. also, i notice that the matte ones crease less than the shimmery ones. i have a sample of rubenesque and it creases more than my soft ochre. :)

rubenesque is SUCH a pretty color though, i completely agree. :)

geezus, a dried up paint pot is beh. that sucks. but i'm glad you were able to exchange it for a new one without any problems! :)

IRENE said...
