Unsung Hero: MAC Painterly Paint Pot


I often express my love for eyeshadow here on BBA. But up until now I have never spoken about MAC Painterly Paint Pot - the unsung hero in my makeup collection. This paint pot from MAC is the perfect eyeshadow companion and a product I reach for more often than not when I apply eyeshadow. If you buy one thing this month, I recommend you pop this pot into your basket.

MAC Painterly Pro Longwear Paint Pot is a nude, flesh toned beige with a matte finish. The product comes in a sleek, sturdy, glass pot. But be warned, if you dont close the lid properly, this product does have the tendency to dry out. Negative point aside, the formula is second to none. It’s highly pigmented, offering an even application over the lids, helping to disguise veins or any redness. The creamy formula makes it effortless to apply. And once set, it does not feel heavy on the lids, crease, fade or smudge, creating the perfect eyeshadow primer. Although Painterly can be worn alone and looks great paired with winged liner and lashings of mascara, it’s longevity and pigmentation creates the perfect canvas to apply eyeshadow. It enhances eyeshadow colours, helping them to appear on the lids as they do in the pan and helps near enough any eyeshadow last all day! I like to buff a thin layer over my lids and add a light dusting of translucent powder, or a neutral eyeshadow on top, to help the eyeshadows blend seamlessly together. Priced at £15.50 it’s essentially great value for money and MAC Painterly Paint Pot is by far my favourite eyeshadow primer, even over the likes of my Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Have you tried any paint pots from MAC?
