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.
