MAC Paint Pot in Indianwood - Review, Photos, Swatch & EOTD

MAC paint pot Indianwood 5 g / 0.17 fl oz US$18.50 / Rs2650 at is a metallic antiqued bronze (frost) . MAC paintpot is highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners. Indianwood paintpot is a gorgeous antique gold/bronze shade which is quite warm with yellow and hint of orange undertones .The finish is a shimmery. I am MAC NC35 and it appears more gold on my lids.The shimmer is so finely milled that they give metallic effect not chunky at all.The shade is very beautiful and will suit Pakistani /Indian skin tones. Its perfect to use on desi weddings.

I have read so much about the MAC paintpots that i knew that i need to get my hands on few of them, Rebenesque being the first one ,But instead i fell in love with this gorgeous shade of gold. I like to wear this color on it's own, as it's very pigmented, or with a slightly darker colour just in the crease.You can see the look i did in the photo below, Just the indianwood on the entire lid, a matte brown in the crease and lots of liner and mascara. I prefer using a good eyeshadow base like UDDP or TFSI , before i apply indianwood on the lids because after couple of hours it has tendency to crease on oily lids, If you have oily eyelids like me then i will suggest priming the lids before hand.It glides smoothly onto your skin, I find the texture better than the Dangerous curve paintpot . that blends really nicely onto the lids, but once it's set, it stays all day. I prefer  using my fingers but flat synthetic brush will work just fine.It  has wonderful pigment and applies beautifully .Since it is very creamy and pigmented, one pot of this awsomeness will last a long time. It can be used to create different looks, You can use it on its own or as a base for different eye shadows like golds/Bronze ,Red ,green for bridal look ,browns and many more.For some people the packaging is bulky but i personally love it. You see i have butter fingers and it slipped out of hands couple of times and phew ! It is still in perfect condition .I store them upside down , i read somewhere that if you store them upside down (label sticking up).Since it is a cream products, you have to make sure to close the lid tightly or else they will dry up rather quickly.

This is my favorite paintpot , other two i own are LE, This is going to last me a long, long long time, but if it ever dries out, will i repurchase ?? Definitely Yes , i will. They are little pricy but they last a long time, i have had mine for a year . It work great as base or alone and i find the shade quite versatile .
