In my opinion, this product is WAY over-hyped. Since I have oily eyelids, most eyeshadows crease on me, including Painterly. I also don't like how it can emphasize dry eyelids. It is also more on the dry side, thus, being hard to blend. It is a good base, but it is something I can definitely live without.

I use this as an eye shadow base almost daily and have never found anything as good. Used to use Cliniques touchbase but this far superior plus you get 5x as much product.
HG prduct! <3

This product is alright. It does nothing for the longevity of shadows, this stuff creases really badly on me without primer underneath. What I do like it for is days when im not wearing a lot of makeup, just mascara, and want to make my eye lids look more even in colour. Its an okay product...I can see why a lot of people will like this but plaid old primer is just fine for me.

I caved and bought this. Its a good neutral base colour but its not as creamy as other paint pots I have. Idk why, maybe because its matte and my lids can look crepey if I use too much. Ill use it up but I don't think ill buy again.

Love this paint pot! I used it very often as base for my eyes. It will create a great canvas for eventual colors on top of it. But i will never use it alone, as the color is a little pinkish for my puffy lids.

Uh-oh guys. I hit pan today for the first time with my painterly eyeshadow pot. Yes, I know MAC is expensive... but I use this shadow every single day (only needs to be applied once with primer), and I have had it for about 7 months and am just NOW hitting pan. I suppose I have another 2-3 months of fulltime use before its gone... Anyway, it may be expensive- but it pays for itself with the quality. I wish people would understand that with makeup (as with most other things in life)- you get what you pay for. I can go buy wet-n-wild yes, but I wont get the deep pigment of color, a good quality product that lasts all day without creasing or will i get a sturdy pan that will never break or allow your shadow to fall apart. Its a no brainer!

This stuff is great! My eyelids can get super oily and my eyeshadow often creases. But with this it lasts a 10 hour work day! It sometimes feels a little drying though so I've started only using it every other day.

This is a fantastic base for oily, creased eyelids.
It creates a perfect canvas for eyeshadows to adhere to.
Eyeshadow are more brilliant.
Eyeshadow stays on until I take it off..finally!
That ugly crease at the end of day, not with this.
It is well worth the price. A little goes a long way.
Good job MAC! I hope they always make this product. I have bought this item 3x. I wil buy more.

This is a great eye primer. It prevents creases, eyeshadow goes on smoothly, and makes a great base.
If I am going out and want my foundation to last (and prevent my skin from getting oily) I will sometimes put this on my t-zone area as a base/concealer and then cover it with foundation.
For daily use I use this as an eye primer and covering under eye circles.
After trying several eye makeup primer brands, MAC Painterly Paint Pot is the only one that does what the other primers promised! Looks small but the pot will last you for a very long time so it is worth the price!

Love love love MAC's paint pots. Especially Painterly, it is such a great color base for putting on eyeshadow. I use other MAC shades (and sometimes Stila) and they last all day if I put on painterly. The packaging is a nice glass pot, and I see the protduct lasting quite a while, even though I use it daily. $18 is so worth it for this product.

This is an excellent eyeshadow primer! When you wear an eyeshadow on top of that..... it lasts the whole day-night without creasing! the thing that I don' really like.. it is the color.. and that because when I bought it I wanted an everyday nude ''eyeshadow'' for my no make-up makeup! So when I only wear this... the result isn't the best.. it's kind of pink-grey-nude on me...(I'm very pale- NC10) So in conclusion.... painterly is a fantastic eyeshadow base-primer BUT i think it's the wrong shade for me..... I will not repurchase it... I think soft ochre would suit me better...

I do like this product. It is a good primer and really keeps the shadows from creasing. The only thing I don't like is the texture. It needs to be MUCH more creamy!. I would give it a 4 out 5 for the texture, but the ridiculous price has made me give this product a 3.
Realistically, I can buy a primer for 1/3 the price that works better so I won't be buying again!

I bought this a long time ago, but only used it once. I wish I kept using it, because I tried it again this week, and now I will not go without it. I used to use Soft Ochre on a daily basis because I thought Painterly was a little too pinkish for my skin, but I was wrong. This stuff is great. Use it alone to even out your lids, or under any shadow. Whoever mentioned the word "elegant", and being able to use this for elegant looks, is exactly what I was thinking. The is really good stuff.... I like it much more than Soft Ochre now.

I swapped for this not expecting to like it but its become hg for me in my morning eye makeup routine. I use it as a primer+base, it evens out my redness and matches my skintone perfectly. My eyeshadow lasts all day just as it does with a good primer like udpp or tfsi. Prior to this I used illamasqua hollow in the same way but that color was actually not as good a color match to my skin as this is. This stuff is just the right consistancy - not too creamy and not too dry. Its wonderful and I will repurchase.

So I bought two Paint Pots, one in Groundwork and the other in Painterly.Painterly suits my skin tone as a primer better but they both work fantastically, I'm not quite sure if they were meant to be cream shadows or primers but they work as both! Painterly really helps my eyeshadow pop and keeps my eyeliner and eyeshadow on for at least 2 more hours.They dry as a matte finish and they're extremely creamy when you apply. I kind of wish they had more colors so it could be a crean eyeshadow but overall I'm super satisfied! A++++ if thats possible..

I've seen beauty blogger raved about this product and i also check the rating from makeup alley first thing before i bought it. Price is average for high end product, but i can see that this product should perform better.
i have greasy lids, even when my entire face is normal or kinda oily in some area, my lids are definitely produces more oil than any other area of my face. Yes, it creases on me, i should've seen it coming. I can't wear this alone, unless i want my eyeshadow to melt. So i must pair this with Urban Decay's Primer Potion, it helps the Painterly to stay in place.
I must admit that the colour is beautiful, it hides any discolouration and left my lids looking very flawless. The texture is creamy on my fingers but turns dry upon blending. if you have dry patch around your lids it will definitely emphasise it. It also makes my eyeshadow looks vivid. I have tried to apply this with my finger, with concealer brush, from dabbing to dragging. But so far the best method for me is dabbing it with my finger.
I really wanted to love Painterly, but however i try it doesn't work well at the end.

It creases......... this covers my little veins or discoloration on the eyelids very well,and it has a nice consistency.
But it doesn't stop my eyeshadows from creasing!! I do have oily eyelids, but not THE oiliest ever.Yet this product creases on me within 3 hours,even if i wear soft eyeshadow colors. Will use it up, but won't repurchase!
If you don't have oily eyelids, and you just want a nice base that will even out the skintone and somewhat prolong the wear of the eyeshadow , then this might be for you.
But if you're looking for a "serious" base that will keep your makeup in place, then this is not for you!

I love MAC paint pots. I wish I loved this more but really comes down to the color being a base and nothing more, but that is for me personally. It applies smoothly and evens out the skin tone of the eye lids very well. I use this on clients who have veiny eyelids or dark pigmentation. I use this very often in my pro kit it very rarely on myself.

Perfect neutral base fir all!!
Price: $24 CAD
Colour: light peachy beige
The peachy colour of Painterly cancels out discolouration on my lids. Keeps eyeshadows crease-free all day and makes them look more vibrant.
A must have for medium skin toned ladies

I wanted to like this stuff... I really did, but honestly it dried out my eyelids, made them SUPER itchy, my eye shadow still didn't stay in place. I tend to love all MAC products so it's a bit of a bummer how much I disliked this primer. Definitely will not repurchase.
