Paint Pot

LOVE using this as an eyeshadow base, there is no creasing whatsoever! You can really just wear it on your lids by itself, too. Definitely a must-have for me. :)

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!

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!!

Better than primer potion!!!

Paint pots are the best prouducts that MAC has to offer they have an amazing color and are a staple for every girls makeup bag. I recomed this product for any body that need a good pigmented primer/cream shadow. It is also great because there is no need for a brush. The consept of this product is actually pretty cool. All it is is an cream shadow that dries to be a powder. Helping your shadow stay put.

The BEST thing that has EVER happened to me.

This was one of the first MAC paint pots I've ever bought. First of all, it is a shimmery-white gold base that spreads smoothly and evenly over your eyes. I use it for a base when I'm using matte eyeshadows. Because the shimmer from the paint pot really shines through. Also, it lasts on your eyes literally ALL day long. There hasn't been a day for me where it didn't last. I recommend this frosty amazingness in a pot to EVERYONE!

Great alone or as a base.

This is the first paint pot I ever purchased from MAC. I am fully satisfied by the texture and how easy it is to apply, you can use your finger or a brush. It is a smooth, nude, sheeney shade that you can build up little by little and it stays put.

Worth the price

I love the shimmer. I like extending it to the inner corner of my eyes to make them look more awake. Paired up with brown eyeshadow, Bare Study gives neutral looks a nice pop without being overdone. Hasn't creased at all for me and I'm satisfied with how it's keeping my eyeshadow in place =)
