this is my favorite product in my makeup collection. I have even using paint pots for 2 years and wouldn't swap for anything else! they keep your eyeshadow vibrant and it stays all day. defiantly recommend it to anyone who want to try. mine lasts about 6-10 months using it everyday! love it!!
I can't live without this in my makeup bag!
I was introduced to this by a friend of mine in Chicago. She actually introduced me to my first Mac products a few years ago. She sent me a few samples of some beautiful pigments and Bare Study, needless to say I bought a full size product of Bare Study later the week I got it. I swear by it. My eyeshadow stays on all day. I can use it alone and put on just eyeliner and look fabulous, like I actually put something on but barley did anything. A wonderful product. If I had to pick between this or any of the other eye primers I've tried this would be my first go to product.
My go-to base
Paint Pots are excellent, oil-free cream eye colours that are most used as a base.
It's pretty stiff, but if you take some and work it between your ring fingers to warm it up, it becomes much easier to apply. The Painterly colour neutralizes the eyelid on light to medium skin tones and gives shadow something to stick to. So, eyeshadows appear more vibrant and last all day long
Depends what you are looking for
If you are looking for an amazing eyeshadow primer, check out soft ochre, or painterly, or groundwork. This is very sheer but it's a pretty color, great for a very very simple eye look. Also, it can be used alone and is a pretty color by itself. Doesn't hold the eyeshadow as long as the others and has a much different consistency. This was the first paint pot I ever bought and it was totally amazing.......until I got paintery. But still, I always repurchase and use it for my simple "whatever" days lol
