Worth the $18
This cream eyeshadow base is wel worth your money. Before I bought Bare Study, I wondered what could be so special about these when there are plenty cream bases available in the drugstore. What sets this one apart is that it is very easy to work with (a finger or applicator just glides onto the product, whereas some longwearing shadow bases can be dry/patchy), it sets quickly to ensure staying powder, and these gorgeous colors can go under any eyeshadow. They make colors pop AND increase the staying power. An eyeshadow primer is meant to do the same thing except these add a beautiful wash of color.
I only have one MAC paint pot but I love it so much!!! I use it everyday as a base for my eyeshadow and it makes my eyes look awake and clean! $20 can be expensive for a creme eyeshadow, but I'm telling you it's one of the best creme shadows I have ever tried before. Thank you MAC your a lifesaver!!!<3<3<3
Amazing, a make-up bag must have!
I love, love, love this product! I mainly use Bare Study, but have other shades too. It is an amzing product with many uses! I use it firstly as a primer on my lids, although it goes on as a cream, it dries instantly and doesn't flake or crease. It can aslo be used as a highlighter or even applied to the cupids bow, it's definitely an all rounder product!
these are great. one of the best base eyeshadows ive tried. they dry quick, so you have to be fast about putting it on. i love the colors, and the one i have, bare study, gives a little bit of shine. i would put only this on my eyelids for school, and 7 hours later, it would still be there. love this! xoxo
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.
Gives a beautiful shimmer.
This product is creamy but does not slide off the lid. It has great longevity on the lid and provides a beautiful base for any colour over the top. It will give any matte shadow that's placed over the top of it a great dimension and lift. I have also used this product on its own for a dewy and/or natural look.
