I have some trouble with the texture of this paintpot since i'm used to the matte painterly. I find it harder to apply. The colour however is lovely (just like expensive pink e/s it's has golden/orange colour and pink tones in it). I love using this just for a simple summery shimmery eye but also with golden, bronzes and even greens on top.
I just always reach for paintely so thats why i wouldn't repurchase
This is a pretty color. Nice bronzy orange. The pigmentation is not the greatest. I think I'll have this jar a very long time, i can't see me using it often.
This is a gorgeous golden color, with a little bit of an orange undertone. I think this is a beautiful color, but I just don't see myself wearing this. If your looking for a really nice, pigmented, golden cream eyeshadow, then this color is perfect for you. Unfortunately, this color wasn't for me.
this was my very first paint pot. i looooove it so much that its kind of not even funny. it shows up as a golden toned peach on my eyelids. looks sooooo good under light browns with some shimmer.or looks great on its own. the formula of this paint pot is alot smoother than any other ones that i own. one of my favorites.
MAC paint pots in general are amazing, they last forever and are easy to work with. Rubenesque is a great color on me even however I only wear it when I want a shimmery look. Its not as practical as Painterly or Groundwork but its definitely a pretty color.
LOVE paint pots. I have Bare Study, Rubenesque, Constuctivist, Blackground, and Delft. I use Bare Study, Rubenesque and Constructivist everyday, just by themselves. Blackground and Delft make really awesome smokey looks. I would definitely repurchase all the colors I own, and others as well. I feel that these wear by themselves and under shadows best of all the cream shadows I've tried (Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow, Lancome Color Dose, Clarins Soft Touch Eye Color).
I got this and I dont think that this is a very flattering color on me. It also made my eyeshadow slick off my eyes! I feel like out of the multiple paint pots I have this is the worst one. I do not find it useful in any way. The only +s I have are that its a pretty color and I like the container.
This product was very disappointing. My friend has painterly, which is much more pigmented & not as dry. Rubenesque dried up for me within a week; my friend & her mom found the same thing happened to them. Also, it shows up as pure gold sparkle for me. The peachy-ness isn't something that looks very natural, nor does it look good under any eyeshadow. Overall, spend $17 on a different product. I would not recommend. continued >>
I think this paint pot is a beautiful color, but I am not sure how flattering it is on me. I have very fair, warm toned skin and it seems to just blend in. I think I may be an NC 20?
I love the paint pots though. They are so easy to use, and they don't crease on me. I use the soft ochre paint pot as an eye base and it works great!
I can't believe I waited this long to buy this! I'm in love! Such an amazing color and multi-use product :) I use this mainly as a base color for all my eyeshadow looks but also if I'm feeling lazy I just put his on and I have a (very) neutral eyeshadow look. The packaging is sturdy and classy, I'm not a fan of digging my fingers into the paint pot but oh well, no biggie :D
