MAC Paint Pots are easily one of my top five makeup products, and the MAC Bougie Pro Longwear Paint Pot is just one of the shades from the MAC Spring 2021 Pro Longwear Paint Pot Collection that launched back in January.
There are sixteen brand new MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot shades, and I bought several of the new shades, and couldn’t wait to try them. If you’d like to read my review and see swatches of the MAC Bougie Paint Pot, keep on reading….
“A highly pigmented, long-wearing, blendable eye primer and/or cream shadow – M·A·C Pro Longwear Paint Pot goes on creamy and dries to an intense, vibrant finish that lasts for 24 hours.
The innovative second skin-like creamy shadow formula blends smoothly over lids and creates seamless, buildable coverage without looking heavy or cakey.
Its superior colour purity stays true and will not streak or crease. Pro Longwear Paint Pot can be mixed with other products, like M·A·C shadows and liners.“
The MAC Paint Pots are packaged within clear, glass round jars with black plastic lids. You have to ensure you twist the lid as tight as you can, as they can dry up easily if you don’t.
I like to store all of my Paint Pots upside down with the shade names facing up, and I feel like it also helps to prevent them from drying out too.
If you store them well, they last for years, and I’ve never had an issue where a Paint Pot is dried up, and I owned eight before purchasing a collection of the new shades.
The MAC Bougie Pro Longwear Paint Pot was the shade I was most excited to try, as the description had me sold. As soon as I saw some swatches, it was a done deal that it was going to be the first shade I bought, and wow was it a good decision.
MAC describes the MAC Paint Pot Bougie as being a red brown with green pearl, but that description just doesn’t do the shade justice, nor does my swatch.
MAC Paint Pot Swatches
If you know MAC Blue Brown Pigment, you’ll love the MAC Bougie Pro Longwear Paint Pot as the colour is almost identical. Bougie has a warm reddy toned brown base, with duochrome green and blue shimmer, and you can really see the duochrome shift come to life in different lights.
It can be worn quite sheerly, where it becomes more of a reddy brown shade. However, the more you apply, the more the shimmer builds up, intensifying the duochrome effect.
It’s such a beautiful shade, and is unlike any other cream eyeshadow I’ve ever tried. I cannot rave about this shade enough, it’s amazing and looks so multidimensional on the lids.
If you like duochrome eyeshadows, or colour changing shades, you need the MAC Bougie Pro Longwear Paint Pot in your life…
