WOHOO! That's right, I finally got my hands on a couple of (what I think are the most gorgeous things on earth) MAC paint pots!
I know, I know - TOOK YOU A WHILE GEORGIE. But hey, I'm new at this, so let's all give Georgie a break yeah? hehe.

Cost: $35each (AUS pricing) 
Colours Purchased: Rubenesque and Bare Study
Recommendation: 5/5 
Benefits of the product: 
Beautiful Colours 
Great alone or as a base

And of course before I start my review, It's time for another famous Georgie Backstory (I should copyright that). Once upon a time.... Haha just kidding. Ok -
It took me a seriously long time to get my head around spending a whopping $35 each on these paint pots, but I had been wanting them forever, and I had a bit of birthday money left over- so I thought, hey this can just be like a birthday present to myself.

I initially went into the store looking to just purchase the one colour Rubenesque (reccommended to me by Ingrid from missglamorazzi whom I am an avid follower of and basically hang off her every word - check out her youtube channel here: ps. it opens in a new window)

but, whilst I was doing a swatch of it on my hand (and testers on my bestfriend Emily- which by the way thank you so much for putting up with me all day long!) I tried out a couple of other ones as well, and the Bare Study definitely caught my eye. It's a gorgeous peachy, champagne couloured pink that is super pigmented and shimmery- so how could you not like it!


So to sum up my story, I basically only bought the one pot of Rubenesque, feeling a bit guilty already for even considering spending so much money on one paint pot, let alone two - and I left the store (sadness I know). But, as we were shopping I couldn't stop thinking about the other paint pot, so I put aside my guilty money spending feelings and just went ahead and purchased it: and yes it was incredibly embarrasing going back into the store with the sameeeeee woman in there and purchasing more, but hey sometimes we have to put these feelings aside and just keep doing what we love, right?!

ACTUAL REVIEW: Sorry I was rambling. 
Both these paint pots in my eyes are worth every cent you spend on them: they last forever, you get a generous amount of them, they make both great eyeshadows/eyeshadow bases and the colours are to die for!
I would also reccommend going into your local MAC store or counter and checking out some of the other paint pot colours for one that suits your skin tone specifically.

I honestly have nothing bad to say about these products at all except that they are a little pricey so make sure that you really really want one, and you pick colour that is right for you.

Have a fabulous day (that's my new word) and stay beautiful!
xo Georgie.
