I have been lusting over this particular paint pot for a while now and was lucky enough to have my mum bring it back for me from Italy.
Since buying my first paint pot in Rubenesque I hadn't really been blown away by them like most people seem to be. However again and again I kept hearing of how much people loved them and thought maybe my one was just a dud. So I thought I would give them another go and this time I was definitely blown away.
Indianwood is apart of the permanent paint pot collection which MAC describes as an "metallic antique bronze" and I think that sums it up perfectly. The colour reminds me a lot of the MAC eyeshadow Woodwinked. One thing I have noticed is that when applied to my eyes in tends to turn a bit more of a coppery colour (which Woodwinked also does) so I do think the colour will differ slightly depending on your skin tone, however, it's a very universal colour that anyone could pull off.
The thing that blew me away about this paint pot as opposed to Rubenesque is that it is a lot thicker in consistency and therefore shows up a lot more pigmented, which is a big improvement. It also has amazing staying power. I have normal/dry skin and where Rubenesque creases on me within a couple of hours Inidanwood lasted my whole working day, which is about 12hrs. This was without a primer underneath and without any shadow to set it.
That's the other thing I love about this paint pot, you can just swipe it over your lid, blend the edge out with a skin-toned matte shadow and you have a gorgeous look that literally takes maybe a minute to do. Especially good when you are up at 6.30am and just want to go back to bed!

Here I am just wearing Indianwood all over and blended out the crease with the colour Naked from the naked palette (a matte light brown). I also smudged some black liner in the outer corner.
|Same day but 12hrs later (excuse the bad lighting, it was dark out!!)|
And here is the same look but 12 hours later! As you can see it still looks pretty much identical to when I first applied it.
Indianwood can be applied with a brush (I use a concealer brush) or just with your fingers, which is what I prefer as the warmth in your finger helps to blend the colour. I also find that the colour is even more pigmented on the eye when applied with a finger.
Would I repurchase? Absolutely. Great pigmentation, Amazing staying power and a beautiful colour!
Indianwood paint pot can be purchased from MAC for $35AUD. (The US price is $17.50USD)
Have you tried Indianwood? What is your opinion on MAC paint pots?
Hope you are all having a great weekend!!
