MAC Paint Pot in Blackground

When I watched Lisa Eldridge's Cheryl Cole video and saw how easily she created a smokey eye with near enough one product, I was on the MAC website quicker than sh*t off a shovel and added Blackground Paint Pot to my Basket.

Oh how I love thee!

I can create a nice easy smokey eye within minutes with this baby. It applies so easily and so smoothly and blends like a dream. I use it on its own or under shadow for a more dramatic look. When used on its own and blended out, it create a lovely sheer smokey eye which takes literally two minutes. I think this is a staple product for anyone who loves the smokey eye look. Im so glad I bought it!

I have my eye on Constructivist next.

  2. Wow! Did Lisa Eldridge steal my idea?! I did a vid on using blackground for a one step smokey eye ages ago.

    I'm kidding of course I'm sure loads of people do it. I LOVE Blackground. <3

  4. We had one of the MAC regional artists come in to college to do demos once and he did practically the same think. Smokey eye using Blackground, then he dabbed some 'Old Gold' glitter into the inner corners. Pretty!

  8. I bought this based on that video too! I then did a post on my version of the look for my blog and Lisa Eldridge retweeted it to her followers! :D Such a great product - it'll last ages & you'll get so much use out of it!
