MeMeMe Dew Pots - Next in line to Paintpots?

That's what the hype is about. 

In my opinion, they are quite different to MAC Paintpot's in formulation. 

These have more of a gel liner consistency to them. They are soft and slippery whereas MAC Paintpot's drag on the skin and stay put. These on the other hand will crease quite a bit. 

I have tried similar ones from Illamasqua before as well. Their Molten Metal creases a lot as it has the same problem as the dew pots. Illamasqua's Cream Pigment on the other hand is in fact quite similar to MAC Paintpot in consistency and effect and stays put. 

I like the shades Dew Pots come in however. I have two, Silent Storm and Hollow Haze. 

Silent storm is a very gorgeous forest green and Hollow Haze is a pretty champagne shade.

I love the shades to be honest, just not the slippery consistency as although they apply quite well if layered and applied on top of an eye shadow for that extra dimension and shimmer, they crease a lot and don't apply as pigmented as they should if worn alone on a naked lid.

One fantastic use I found for them is as a gel liner. They are a dream to apply and stay put as well. Plus the forest green looks gorgeous as a pop of colour.

Also, the champagne shades makes a lovely creamy cheek and brow highlighter. Will feature some pictures showing their alternative uses soon.

Have you found any dupes for MAC Paintpot?

Silent Storm reminds me of the Delft Paint Pot which I didn't get to buy before they discontinued it, so that's definitely going on the list!

Thanks for a great review xx

These do look comparable to paintpots. I stick with my trusty UDPP but for coloured primer this would be excellent.

Seems like every brand is coming up with paint pot like cream shadows. Interesting! Lovely colors btw! Would love to see them on your eyes soon!
