Pros: Easy to Use, Great Texture, Good Colour Payoff
Cons: Can Dry Out, Can Crease After Hours of Wear
I bought my first paint pot a couple of years ago and I am still using it! I bought it in the color Bare Study (a frosty champagne) to use as an eyeshadow base.
The great things about this product are its pigmentation (for most colors) and texture. I especially like the texture of the frostier ones better, it is smooth and creamy. The matte ones are not bad, I simply prefer the frosty ones more. You can apply these with a clean finger or a brush, I tend to use my finger because it is easier to blend. I will wear this color by itself or as a base for whatever eyeshadow I want to wear; I don't find that the frostiness of Bare Study interferes at all with the overall finish of the eyeshadow that I place on top of it. I love how I can sweep this on my lid, put on some mascara and walk out the door looking nice.
This product can dry out if you don't close the lid tight after every use, I have yet to deal with any dryness problems from this product and I have owned this paint pot for over two years. Another con is that this product lasts only about 8-10 hours on me, but even then it is only just starting to crease on my eyelid.
This product is available in a lot of different colors, although sadly most of the brighter colors are often either limited edition with collections or they have been discontinued from the permanent line.
Overall I adore this product and will be buying it again. It works great as an eyeshadow base and as a stand alone eyeshadow, and a little goes a long way. I highly recommend this product.
