I am definitely not an eye shadow girl, give me a stand out lip over a statement eye any day but I'm trying a bit more with my eyes and where better to turn than MAC Paint Pots?! I've seen so many good reviews and Bare Study seemed like a nice simple shade that even a complete eye shadow idiot like me could work with!
MAC Paint Pots come in a sturdy little glass container which you need to keep the lid screwed on tight as they have a tendency to dry out, while doing my research (the more swatches I see the more my purse opens) I read that a lot of people store their Paint Pots upside down so the moisture stays at the top, I don't know how effective this is but if it gives this little beauty a longer shelf life then I'll give it a go. Bare Study is a really pretty shimmery champagne shade that does lean towards being a bit beigey which I always think sounds boring but this is an exciting beige - I promise! You can use this as a base for other eye shadows to make them look more vibrant or you could even use it as a highlighter. Personally I've been wearing it alone and applying with my fingers over the whole lid and I absolutely love it, it's such an easy shade to wear and makes your eyes stand out and look wide awake, which is a feat in itself when I'm getting ready for work in the morning! I can't leave the house without a flick of eyeliner and often find with creamy eye products that the eyeliner doesn't take very well or it doesn't come out as black but with this there's none of that. I can't get over the staying power of this bad boy, it literally keeps going and going with very minimal creasing.
I know that £15 is a bit steep but I've used this every single day since I got it and haven't even made a dent in it yet so I can definitely see it lasting me a long, long time. As well as being head over heels with the shade, I've fell in love with the formula so I can definitely see Bare Study getting a few little friends in the near future!
