This is definitely a product I had been meaning to try forever, but for one reason or another (didn’t want to spend the money, had something similar already, was lazy, etc.) but now that I finally did, I’m obsessed and not sure how I ever lived without it. MAC’s Paint Pots are totally fabulous products, but I’m not sure how much I would use the darker shades. I have had a paint pot in “Bare Study” for ages and it is still half full.
While the shimmery neutral-pink shade of bare study is a good base for many looks I use, sometimes I want matte. So in comes “Painterly,” a super awesome neutral matte beige. It acts as a flawless base for some fun eyeliner or under any type of eye shadow, shimmer, frost or matte. I just stick my pointer finger in and get a bit on my fingertip and blend it on my lids. It makes such a difference to any shadow you place over it, making pigments bolder and sharper. I highly recommend this product for anyone who likes to do even basic eye makeup, and definitely for those who like to get a bit more creative. I even use Painterly on its own, when I want to do that no makeup-makeup look. With mascara of course!
