The Blues…

The Blues…

Today’s been a rather dull day thus far. Woke up to “that time of month” and a nice little pimple on my chin (just in case the bed-ridden cramps wasn’t enough of an indicator…).

So, I’ve decided that if I were a color, today I’d be blue!

MAC Cosmetics has come out with yet another new product! Painterly are pots of cream eye shadows. Available in 12 bold colors, Painterly hits MAC counters nationwide this month but will stay a part of the permanent collection.

What the heck is painterly, you ask?
Straight from the mouths of the MAC genius’s, “A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. The next generation of a popular M·A·C formula, Paint Pots maintains all the intense traits of its inspiration. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners.”

How do you wear painterly, you ask?
Well, Senior MAC make-up artist, Fatima Thomas says this to beauty banter:
“Paint Pots, being creamy, are best applied with a firm, flat brush like
MAC’s #252. Start by loading the brush with a small amount of product,
blend it on the lid starting at the lash line, moving up and out. Or use
Paint Pot as a liner using the #266 brush. I love using them as a base
for powder shadows as well.”

Deleft, a deep teal frost with gold pearl, is the perfect blue that I’ve been craving!!!

I’m gonna try it tonight and have pics up tomorrow!
