I was lucky enough to find these in a bin at the 99cent store! Much to my surprise, they're great! The nude shades works really well as a base to keep your eye makeup from smearing or creasing, but they are pretty good on there own as well.
I find that they go on a little smoother if you use your finger and not the brush that comes with them. Much easier to blend that way.
As another reviewer said, the only bad thing is that the pressure in the tube causes too much product to come out, without even squeezing.

I have Lofty, Steely and Secretive. I really like these. They can be used as a base or on their own. They do not crease. They do not irritate my eyes. They're good. I got them in a swap, so I can't comment on the price. I don't even know if they sell them in stores anymore. They last pretty well too.

I have this in witty, lofty and nervy. Nervy is definitely my favourite.
They all have great pigmentation and a little goes a long way with this product. The staying power is amazing! Once it dries, it will not budge at all.
I have yellow undertones to my skin and nervy seems to compliment it the most. Lofty comes up as a slightly peachy colour which I quite like because it brightens up my eyes. I don't like witty so much because it looks orange on me and makes me look clownish..
The only complaints I have about this product is that the pressure in the tube causes waste of a lot of product and it can be hard to blend out.

WOW! I have this in Steely, Lofty, Nervy and Secretive. Every product I love ends up being discontinued. I saw that the shadow paints were being discontinued at Walgreens and were on sale for 2 bucks each, and I figured, I bet I might like them. Oh boy was I right. Easy application. The pigment was strong but not ridiculous. Incredible texture. It looked great on and stayed in place. WOW!

its a good creamy product and pigmented the only thing i dont like is the color it makes my eye look all cakey and fake.

I have these in secretive and lofty. I use them under my eyeshadows to give the color extra intensity and to make eyeshadow last longer. I don't use a primer under these and my eyeshadow will last all day. I would of never thought to buy them but I got them in a swap and now they are a staple for me, especially on nights that I do a dramatic eye and I dont' want it to fade. The 2 colors I have are too light to use for me alone as eyeshadow, but if you like a natural look they will work well. The packaging is tricky when first opened because a lot of product comes out. Once you use it a few times its fine though and you don't need to use a lot at all. These really make your eyeshadow pop and I would repurchase.

I purchased two of these on clearance #807 Secretive (beige) and #813 Witty (brown). Alone as eyeshadow they were horrible; heavy, cakey and unflattering.
I tried again later to go cheap and try using #807 as a base instead of going out and getting a MAC paint pot. They don't just become dry they dry quickly and even doing one eye at a time they just didn't work for me. Too heavy and drying, wearing them is just uncomfortable.

I have 2 of these, Secretive and Commanding, and I love them to death. The brush they come with kinda suck. I mean, they're usable, and I have used them, but they streak when you're trying to blend. It's easier to either use your own concealer brush, or just pat it on with a finger. These stick around all day. Lately I've been skipping a step, foregoing the UDPP and just wearing these, and they definitely do the job.
These are clearance like, everywhere right now. Get them soon if you're lemming them, I think they're going bye bye soon.

I love these! I have them in every color. I got them for a steal, so I think they are being discontinued. Maybe they'll resurrect themselves in different packaging hopefully. I always use this over UDPP or TFSI so they never crease on me. Plus I only use this as a base only under other powder shadows. It really makes my eyeshadows pop and adds more dimension. I have Mac paint pot in Soft Ochre and used that all the time, but I got too bored with it since it's too plain; I love soft ochre, but it's just blah and I think it's too light on me. But these just make my eyeshadows a lot more interesting depending which color I use with it. Get these if you can still find them. I really think these are high quality for ds. Lastly, I really love the packaging because it is so small and compact and does not take up a lot of space like the PP do. Luv em.

Such a nice product! I'm really surprised by this one! It blends beautifully then stays put, doesn't crease, stays vibrant, holds my eyeshadow in place. My smokey eyes have never looked better. I found mine at the $0.99 Store (can't beat that price with a stick) and definitely worth it, I have absolutely zero complaints on this.

just would like to announce that i found HIP paints at my 99 cent store for 99 cents each. i almost did a dance in the makeup aisle. i don't think it's just the 99 stores around me because i don't live next to stores that are up to date. my target still doesn't have the HIP jelly balms. but anyways, i've paid up to $14 for these in the pharmacy so i'm really excited. i hope it doesn't mean that they're being discontinued : (
onto the product: i've tried secretive, witty, and lofty. lofty is my favorite. i like light pinks, and lofty is a light pink with a slight shimmer. all of the paints i've tried have pretty good staying power. sadly, they do crease at the end of the day, but i have extremely oily lids, so it'd prob last longer for most. for the time that it doesn't crease, shadows blend easily and i do believe it makes them more vibrant. i can exercise with sweat dripping down my face, and the shadow doesn't fade. a couple of times i've even taken a shower (with eyeshadow on, careful not to get face wet) and it still stays on. if you're looking for a drugstore cream shadow that can serve as a base or just work on its own, i think this would be a good choice.

I got this in Steely and it works great. It stays on all day and I use the applicator and it works great too. I kind of compare it to a MAC 242 brush. Works great with cream based shadows.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Oily, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I used this (Witty) as a base and it lasted 8 hours with no creasing. And I have oily lids. Not crazy about the metal tubes that tend to extrude too much product, but the brush works great. My only complaint is the limited color range. All the ones I saw were neutral. How about some blues or greens? Excellent product!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
GREAT base! I've tried MAC, Too Faced, UDPP and this one is by far the BEST!
The eye shadows apply so well with this base and there's minimal creasing.

I found these on clearance at Walgreens yesterday ($3.xx/each), bought 3 and tried them out.
High praise for STEELY - I tried it as an eyeliner and it went on very smoothly with that little brush and stayed on, even through physical activity! I love the color as it looks softer on me than black.
I also bought Nervy and Commanding. I used Nervy as an all-over color on my lid and it looked nice and stayed on with minimal creasing, but I have come to the conclusion that all products on my 42 y/o eyelids are going to crease no matter what. Seems like cream eyeshadows are working better for me these days than powders in that regard.
Since I'm NC40 or darker at times, Nervy or Commanding will work as a base for me, but commanding is a bit more pink than I thought.
I was able to control the amount that came out after I popped the seal, but popping the seal made a ton of the goo ooze out, so it lost lippies for that.

I have all six of these and I use maybe 2 of them, I use secretive and witty as base shades, I find the other colors to be too dark. I tend to like things to look more natural and I don't really have any use for the darker colors. I have used them with the other paints and it seemed to be ok but I will probably have them forever since I never really use them. I will repurchase the 2 colors I do use cause I use them everyday as bases. Love the packaging though and the brush is nice.

I got four of these for $5.26 each. I've used UDPP and TFSI and still get creasing and fading with them. These are a good alternative when I want something that works the same as UDPP and TFSI but with some color to them. The only thing I don't like is that too much product tends to come out of the tube which is why I removed a lippie.

I bought this in Secretive on a whim at my local Walgreens because they were getting rid of this particular color but I would have paid full price for it. I have used different kinds of primers and bases but this one seems to work the best. I wore it today under my Ulta e/s in copper bronze (a fairly darker color for me) and I didn't get one bit of creasing all day. I was pretty surprised and I will be buying this again.

I can't compare these to MAC Paints (yet), but I can compare them to cream shadows in a tube from Clinique and Px. These aren't as creamy and easy to spread, but they ain't bad. Over UDPP, they are creaseless and last all day on my non-oily, over-40 lids. I don't mind the brush that comes with each paint; it's not a brush I'd pay extra for, but I like being able to dedicate a brush to a color. The pigmentation is good and buildable. I have Secretive, a vanilla shimmer, and Witty, a copper brown. Secretive's shimmer is a little overt; I can't use this as an all over wash without looking crepey, but as a highlighter on the browbone and inner corner, it works fine for my NC10 skin. I like Witty better; I can wash it lightly over the lid to make my muted green-blue eyes look teal, or build the color to get something closer to a new penny (think Sue Devitt's Eye Intensifier in Tanzania, but taken down a couple of notches). The shimmer in Witty is more subtle and wearable. I got these BOGOF and then 20 percent off on Ulta.com, so I paid about $4.50 each. I would pay up to $6 or $7 for them, which is about half the retail. If I have to pay full price, I'm more likely to go to MAC or Clinique.
UPDATE: After using this several times, I've discovered that it makes my eyelids itch. I've never had this reaction to any other eye makeup or product, so I have no idea what it is in this that irritates my skin.

Creases like a bugger. The brush it comes with sucks... I just cough up the extra few dollars for mac paints. Color selection is so small. If you are really in a crunch you can work with it but really isn't worth the effort for me.
