MAC Layin' Low Pro Longwear Paint Pot Review and Swatches

Hey Everyone!

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC paint pots need no introduction, they one of the best selling products from MAC and quite worth the rave in my personal opinion. So when MAC launched their Pro Longwear Paint Pots I was super excited to get my hands on few of them. One of them which I was most excited about was Layin' Low which is a relaunch and was initially launched in 2010 with their Fafi collection!


The packaging of pro long wear paint pots are same as their regular paint pots line, they come in a ting glass jar which I quite like and don't find them way too bulky. I always store these upside down as its much easier to find the shades this way and I have heard it helps to keep them from drying as well.

MAC describes Layin' Low as "creamy beige". To me its definitely more peachy beige rather than only beige! Its much warmer than soft ochre which is yellow and painterly which is more pink! Layin' low is flesh toned beige shade with peach undertones, which makes it the most perfect shade for Indian or tan skin tones! Due to its peach undertones and awesome pigmentation it does cover any hyper pigmentation or darkness on the eye lids quite effectively. The texture is creamy and completely matte! It applies smoothly on eyelids however it does tend to dry pretty fast so one has to work pretty quick in terms of blending the shade. Once it dries it does not budge at all! Works fantastic as a base for neutral eye looks and keeps the eyeshadows from creasing making them last whole day! The only thing would be if you have very dry eyelids an eye cream is a must before using this one as it settles to a  matte finish!

Overall a fantastic and a must have paint pot in my opinion! MAC Layin' Low Paint Pot is available across all MAC counters and retails for 1450/- for 5g.

    2. You can put paintpots in the microwave for a few seconds and that will restore them if they've dried out!

  3. How do you think this would compare against Groundwork paintpot? I have that one, so I only wonder if I need this too?

    1. Shlaya groundwork is totally different shade, this is more neutral and matches skin tone pretty well whereas Groundwork is more taupe
