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 shimmer! Painterly is fine...just no shine or shimmer. This is gorgeous for everyday! I have also added Mac oh so gilty over it and it's stunning! I need this primer to hold my eyeliner gel and it …Read more

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 all of my eyeshadows apply with ease and signifigantly reduce creasing. Decided to try this shade thinking a beige pearl shade would be nice to wear under shimmery eyeshadows and maybe on its …Read more

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 eyeshadow in a warm champagne ivory colour with finely milled gold pearl in it. As an eyeshadow by itself, it imparts a pretty and subtle sheen and brightens the whole eye area without being garish or …Read more

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 very little for a beautiful effect. I bought this colour because of my pale skin and with or without eye makeup it adds a beautiful glow to my eyelids. Will be repurchasing.

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 use it as a primer. I prefer to mix it with painterly or soft ocre to give them a lighter hue with a little shimmer. The only issue I have is it dries out quicker than I can finish using it, and when …Read more

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.

I wrote my original review for Bare Study way back in 2012. I have used MAC Paint Pots for more years than I care to think about and I love most of them. With Bare Study, I have a bit of a "love/hate" relationship. I recently bought a new jar to replace one I b2m'd 4 years ago because it dried out so quickly compared to Painterly, Groundwork, etc. But since Benefit's RSVP …Read more

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 beautiful champagne with glow - think highlighter for the eyes. The texture is like silk, and it applies like buttah - I use my fingers for the best coverage. It's also buildable. I think the …Read more

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. So try using a tiny amount in the crease and tap it in well.
Longevity is ok.
