I love this as a base for eyeshadow, suits neutral shades (brown, beige, champagne etc.) I've used this mostly every day since I bought it about 3 weeks ago and you wouldn't be able to tell.
The product is reasonably expensive, as MAC products usually are but you get what you pay for and it really does last ages.
It stays on all day and, obviously, makes your eyeshadow stay too. No need for a primer.
Although, one 'con' is that sometimes when you first apply it, it usually looks uneven on the eye and it's not extremely easy to blend but it's not difficult.
Overall it's definitely worth buying if you want a shimmery neutral eyeshadow/base, it's probably the best to go for.
This is a peachy gold cream eyeshadow, or eyeshadow base. It is schimmery, but not over the top. It is a really lovely color, also a great base for light browns, champagnes, bronzey eyeshadows. A great staple to have.
I have heard a ton of good reviews of paint pots being excellent eyeshadow bases so when the time came when I was looking for an excellent eyeshadow base for my everyday makeup, I headed for my MAC store and picked one up. This is one of those purchases that I definitely know won't let me down and how right I was. I really love the consistency of this product. I goes on very smooth and the color payoff is pretty excellent--very, very pigmented peachy gold color that would definitely look excellent in every skintone (I've seen fair and medium skin toned girls both NW and NC wear this and it looked really good on them). And what's really good about this product is it lasts a really, really long time! People I know use MAC Paint Pots have had theirs for years! A definite must-have.
I never would have picked this for myself, but a MA used this on my eyes for a wedding and I loved it. This was my first paint pot and it was an amazing base on my oily lids. My shadow stayed all night long without any creasing. And the color is very pretty and flattering to my NC30 skin (I was worried it would be too orangey and too frosty but it's not).
I remember buying this as a sample awhile ago and absolutely falling in love with it. I think it's an overall fun color that young people would enjoy.
This is so gorgeous! I love how satiny this color goes on, and it gives you enough time to blen it before drying. I actually just use my fingers for application, but I sometimes use a 217 brush. This color may look very orange, but, on my medium skin tone, this is a nice neutral. It can be used as a primer or an all over lid color! It dries nice and satiny, and stays on all day, WITHOUT PRIMER! I love this product, and would definitely repurchase! A definite 5 lippies!
Absolutely gorgeous!!! What a beautiful colour catched in a jar. This golden-peach just make my eyes pop!!!
I find this creamy eyeshadow very useful with my pigment in melon. I love the way it looks mixed with a layer of woodwinked and melon on top paired with russian red on lips. WOW!
I live in the south of Spain (hot/wet weather) and I find this amazing over my lids. It does not crease and it keeps setted perfectly well after 12 hours with my UDPP, even on the beach it has a nice lasting power.
I usually wear greens, but I'm actually trying out corals during sunny days, and I find quite nice mixing rubenesque+expensive pink+red brick (outer corner)+a hint of teal in the outer waterline to enhance my mossy green eyes. I use to pair it with crosswires or Revlon's coral reef and it looks amazingly beachy!!!
Another thing is I love using Rubenesque on my cheekbones. It gives such a beautiful glow that I always get compliments when I wear it. Just beautiful. Definitely will repurchase it!!!
Absolutely love this color!! They told me it was a base, but I use it as a sheer, shimmery shadow on most days. I layer on other shadows for shows and outings, and it just makes everything pop!! Best MAC product I've used. The color is perfect, the container is super cute-if only they'd drop the price. But considering I still have lots left even after a year, it is more than worth your money. =)
LOVE Rubenesque! It works perfect for me as a shadow base because I wear alot of peachy/gold shadows and it helps to make them soo vibrant. I have no problems with creasing and it keeps my shadow looking lovely all day = )
I really like this PP. For starters it works as a great base to really pick up the pigments in your eyeshadow. Then, It's a fleshy color so it won't steal the show of your eyeshadow! Lastly, it's such a great PP because if you are in a hurry you can swipe it on your lids as your eyeshadow! I LOVE it! ♥
