MAC Paints were my first venture into eyeshadow primers and still remain to be one of my favorites. I started with Bare Canvas, and then Stilife, and ultimately settled on Untitled because it was a better match for my skintone. If you use too much product, your shadow can get a bit cakey. But with the right wee-sized amount, my shadows last all. day. long. Perfect. And they don't dry out like the Paint Pots, which I wasn't a fan of.

Picked this up at my local CCO. I just use this as an eyeshadow and it makes my blue eyes pop! Matches my skin perfectly.

Oozes like crazy... Seriously? Ive never seen anything like that. Yes ive read reviews about people experiencing the same problem, but i just thought maybe they were exaggerating a bit.Or that i would be luckier..Well that wasnt the case, obviously. Every time i open it, it oozes...The quality is bad, not creamy , makes it extremely difficult to apply the eyeshadow and the worst of all since my eyelids are kinda oily and "wrinkly" due to the texture of the skin, it emphasizes the skin's"wrinkles".. As a result not only the eyeshadows cannot be applied evenly, but also the "wrinkles" look worse..
If you have "wrinkly", oily eyelids stay away from paints. At least from UNTITLED. Back to mac..

Words cannot describe how much I love this product. I bought my first tube about 2 years ago and despite using it EVERY SINGLE DAY I am only just coming to the end of it!
I remember when I first got this, and wasn't too sure whether I had just been scammed as I was not entirely convinced that this little tube would have any effect on my eyeshadow staying power, despite assurances from the mua that this product is a staple in her make up bag. Out of all of my make up, this has by far lasted the longest. You literally just need to smudge a little of it onto the tip of your finger and apply over your lid - a little goes a long way - I find that sometimes if I have tried to put a little too much on it sticks to my eyelashes, although that's my fault and not the paints!
As someone who has oily skin, and unfortunately oily lids, my eyeshadow slides off without applying this first. I've never found that my eyeshadow creases when using this which is fab! Some people have mentioned that they use this alone as an eyeshadow itself, but it matches my eyelid colour exactly so there would be no point in doing this :) (I am an NC25 for reference).
It's £13.50 in the UK, and definately a bargin in my book. Normally when a product runs out I rush to buy something else and rarely repurchase even if the product is good, just because there are so many different products out and I want to try them all, however I'm a firm believer of the 'don't fix what ain't broke' motto in this case, and will definately be repurchasing this when it finally runs out.

I wish I had discovered this years ago. It looks fabulous with my dark brown eyes and cool, pinky skin tone. This product covers the significant discoloration on my eyelids and leaves a nice, slightly frosty "almost natural" look. I wear it alone most days with some eyeliner. It also works well as a "base" color, with some plum shadow near the crease. I recommend applying it with a brush (the sales lady recommended a great one), as a brush allows exact application and prevents waste. By the way, I do the Carmindy trick of applying a dab on my tear duct area. This is great for that!

This works brilliantly as an eyeshadow primer. I much prefer it to UDPP or TFSI. It blends easily on eyelids and makes the shadows really stick. it does not change the color of the shadows at all. My shadows stay put and DO NOT crease at all with this - even after all day of wear. In fact I wore this for my wedding, and my shadows stayed put for all the events & photographed well :). This stuff can also be used if you just want to cover up any discoloration on the lid, like a concealer, but better. creates the perfect blank canvas, whether you want to add shadow on top or not. Oh! and it lasts forever. I have had my tube for 2 years, use it frequently, and it is still going strong!

LOVE IT! I'm on my second tube of this and I can't remember when I bought it, it has been that long ago. This stuff lasts forever and is the best eye shadow base that does more than just prime. It is so beautiful by itself but far too pale for my liking. Paired with a darker shadow, it never creases, gets oily or dries out my eyes. LOVE IT!

Before you look at the pictures please believe me when I say they don't do justice to the product and aren't an accurate representation of the true colour. This is a perfect example of why it is best to test products before purchasing them. When I saw swatches of this paint on MUA and blogs I just thought it was another Bare Canvas Paint but than I checked the MAC website to discover it being described as a, 'light toned greyed mauve with slight shimmer' so I had to check it out for myself. The above description is pretty accurate, in some lights it looks more grey and others more pink. I recommend Untitled as a base for light purple and pink toned eyeshadows, like MAC's Yogurt eyeshadow. While this Paint isn't outstanding by any means, I would still recommend it as a good base for like colours. I give it a thumbs up.

i absolutely adore this product as an eyeshadow base. Let me start by saying I have BIG eyes, and therefore I crease very easily. This is the ONLY product that I know will last me all day with no creasing or fading, and as a pasty pasty white girl (lighter than NC15), it doesn't give me all kinds of weird discolouration to cover up. Definitely my favourite base.

I have been using this product for 8 years, since my first prom at age 16. For reference, my skin is NW20. I've also tried paints in Bare Canvas (nice, but tends to get a bit streaky), Sublime Nature (horrid recommendation from the girl when Untitled was out of stock), and another neutral color, pink, and gunmetal grey that have since been discontinued. NOTHING keeps my shadow and liner as crease-free as this paint--and I have tried everything from UDPP (overrated, more expensive, runs out more quickly) to Guerlain, which I like but cannot justify paying for when its performance is not mind-blowing. Granted, the packaging for paints is freaking annoying--you will wind of squirting out a bunch when you first open the product, just like with anything in a metal tube. Honestly it's nothing to freak out about though; I've had paints last for literally years and I use them nearly every day, so if you can't get the extra transferred to another jar before it dries I promise you've still got plenty of uses in the package. Most people probably get by with using MAC's Paint pot in painterly, which has a similar color but is more ergonomically packaged (it also is creamier than a traditional paint and thus less drying to the lids...but subsequently less effective, IMO.) However, I will be sticking to the paint in Untitled...if you're looking for an eye-shadow base that suits all ranges of colors and have found yourself unimpressed with TFSI, UDPP, FY-eye and all the other popular bases on the market, i urge you to the try this one.
