I used to love painterly. But decided that this bare study would be perfect bc it's not matte and boring like painterly. You can wear bare all alone or add a shadow and still have the pearly...

I have paint pots in painterly and soft ochre and use them all the time as an eyeshadow base, they were game changers and I now rely on them. They help provide a smooth eyeshadow base that makes...

This versatile little product isn't the cheapest out there, but is one of those products that has stood the test of time over the years and is one I always repurchase. It is a buttery cream...

Love how this adds a subtle, yet beautiful, and not hugely obvious (yet not invisible either) sheen to your eyelids, with or without makeup. It also works as a wonderful eye primer, and you need...

Love it! Easy to apply and adds a nice amount of shimmer under certain shades! Also prevents creasing! I would repurchase

It has great color and staying power even on oily lids. I use my fingers to apply, because it glides smoothly and easier to control. The sparkle is nice, but can look cheap for everyday wear if you...

I am not sure what I can add which hasn't already been said, but... I LOVE this product! I love this product for completely different reasons than I love the matte paint pots though. This shade is...

It is an absolutely lovely shade - pinkish champagne with some fine shimmer. Should be particularly beautiful on warmer skin tones. The texture is very creamy which results in creasing in the lid....
