Groundwork at first glance looks like it will be a lovely deep brown shade. In actual fact when applied to the lid it comes out like a taupe colour with hints of pink/lilac (see swatch on the right below). I actually like it as its quite a delicate shade that's subtle enough for daytime use.
The Medium Dark Primer is meant to be the darkest shade MAC caters for. Personally, I think it's a bit light for being described as medium dark (see swatch on the left) but it blends very well to match your skin tone.
On my right side I have applied the MAC Prep and Prime Eye Primer with Groundwork on top and on the left I have only applied Groundwork.
Here are my results:
10.30 am -
All freshly done
3.30 pm -
Both still in place!
6.30 pm -
Makeup is mostly in place but there is a slight bit of creasing at the inner corners of the eye.
Overall the longevity of this product seems to be good although there is slight creasing after 8 hours. I didn't notice that the primer made much difference to be honest although I suppose the right eye I applied primer to looks marginally better.
What do you think about MAC Paint Pots? Or do you have any dupes you would recommend?
Thanks for reading!!
On a side note I am actually on the hunt for a good lip liner, can anyone recommend one?
