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...

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...

The shimmer in this paint pot gives off a crepey eyelid look. Camel coat or Soft Ochre are much better options. I will not repurchase.

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....

I was looking for a colour with shimmer to brighten my eyes and be subtle enough for everyday use with some mascara and natural blush and lips. A make up artist at Mac recommended Jest (which I...

Another great Mac product. It doesn't crease which is a miracle for a creme eye shadow! However if I want to use the gel eye liner I must set this with a powder shadow or the gel transfers badly. I...

I find that eye shadow moves around and creases a lot on my eyelids so when I heard about people using the MAC paint pots and it not creasing I was really excited to try it. However, I find that it...
