MAC Painterly | Thoughts On

 Hello everyone.
Exciting post for you all today, it's a MAC review. I never really shop at MAC, but I've been wanting Painterly for a while. I've been wearing it for a few days so I have a few thoughts on it and I'm going to share them all with you.

I'm a big fan of eyeshadow creams and bases now, all thanks to the Maybelline ones. I never would pay £15 for one of these but I had some Debenhams points which made it £10 and Maybelline don't have a nude shade *or that I'm aware of?* so I thought I might aswell.

I noticed with Painterly, my eyeshadow didn't crease. It kept as a really nice base all day at work and my eyeshadow settled really well ontop. I can use this as an everyday eyeshadow shade or I can add a natural crease colour for a simple look - there's a lot of possibilities with Painterly. 
I find that it's creamy and quite blendable but not as creamy as the Maybelline ones - it's slightly thicker so I could maybe use an applicator to apply although I use my fingers. 

I always find that if I use a glittery/shimmery eyeshadow this is good as a base - doesn't make the eyeshadow drop out as much and brings out the colour more. I find that once you apply this is dries a little on your lids to create an actual eyeshadow finish, rather than being a smooth finish. It doesn't crease, it's long lasting and goes well with all products - I can see this lasting a long while too so £15 is definitely good value. 



  1. MAC is so expensive for what it is :( I wish i could shop in there daily! This is a really beautiful, natural shade and definitely something i'd use if i owned.
    You've commented on a few of my posts lately and i didn't realise i'd never been on your blog. It's so lovely here! Oh and you're not too short to wear a maxi skirt at all! I'm only 5ft :)

    1. Yeah I agree - I find it slightly overrated but thats the beauty world for you! You read one review and you're hooked haha.
      I might have to purchase one then - I'm 4'11 haha!

      Thankyou so much for commenting, I love your blog:) x

  2. I have Soft Ochre and I love it! I do really hate that they mark up prices so much in the UK :( MAC paint pots cost $20 here. 15 pounds would be about $25, that's a lot!


Please feel free to comment your opinions/thoughts! I respond/read all of them!
Thanks for taking the time to read the post and make a comment, it means a lot!
