MAC Painterly paint pot eyeshadow- is it really worth getting?

I have it in my basket ready to check out but really, I have about 50 eyeshadows in the same shade and tend to use the Urban Decay primer when I want my eye make up to stick around longer.

But I've been reading so many lovely things about the painterly shade. Please tell me I don't need it!

I have it and actually prefer the Urban Decay product. I feel that the MAC is less smooth and clings more to any dry skin on the eyelid.

Painterly is a bit chalky for me , but I am TOTALLY in love with groundwork paint pot.

I have slightly crepey lids though

Thanks both, I might have a look instore next time I'm passing. Ggirl, LOVE that colour. It looks quite shimmery on the swatches, is it?
