Hello beauties,

I’m not much of a consumer of pricier makeup but I always feel that some products are worth the investment. About MAC everybody nowadays knows something, at least that they are generally good products.

I’ve been targeting MAC Paint Pot for a while, not being sure if to invest or not in another creamy eyeshadow. I even tried to find dupes for it (see the review for Maybelline Color Tattoo here). Eventually, I went for the real deal and because of the whole natural look craze I went for Painterly.


  • economical – yes, it is because you only need a thin layer of the product on your eyelids
  • it gets picked up real easy from the jar either with fingers or with a stiffer brush (like the ones used for concealer)
  • you can use it as an eyeshadow or as a base for eyeshadows even as a primer if your skin permits
  • it can cover different irregularities on your eyelids (redness, veins, etc)


  • if you used too much product it creases; if you use it without primer, it creases (at least for me)
  • you have to work quickly as it dries fast

Overall, it’s a nice product with many functionalities but it’s not something you would really miss from your makeup bag, basically, a splurge. But for those of you that are considering it, I recommend it with open heart.

Until the next time, wear red lipstick and glitter all the way:-)
