Painterly has been a workhorse for me for years! I used it alone for work every day, along with a black pencil along my top and bottom water lines, black mascara, and a brow pencil. A simple, contracted, and work-appropriate look that I could put on in no time (which was important when faced with an hour + ride on a subway line that never had a chance to sit down and do my makeup to quit, lol).
Even if I’m no longer working, I think I could still add Bare Study and Vintage Selection to my collection, so that I have the opportunity to shimmer a little every now and then when I’ve put on my make-up.
Thanks for posting this, Christine! The paint pots are really one of my favorite MAC products and this inspired me to try some of the other colors too!
