MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study

As my first MAC paint pot, I wanted a shade that would serve many purposes and be something I could get a lot of use out of whether it was for a day or night look. I've heard nothing but good things about these paint pots (specifically Painterly) and thought I would spend my pennies on Bare Study after much deliberation.

Bare Study is described as a soft beige with gold pearl (very much what it appears to be in the pot) but my first thought when I applied it to my skin was that it was a gorgeous champagne colour with a visible shimmer. The formula is creamy and smooth, and warms quickly when interacted with in the pot. I prefer to use my fingers to apply the product over my eyelids; I have also tried using a synthetic brush but found that it didn't pick up enough of the product in order to make it worthwhile. I found that you have to work quite quickly to pat and blend it on your lids because it dries rather fast - fast-drying means it stays put all day though!

If you have really oily lids then I suggest applying a primer beforehand to prevent the product from creasing, however I use this pretty much like I would a primer anyway because my lids aren't that oily. The high pigmentation also intensifies any colour shadows you pop over the top! This brings us nicely onto its multi-usage advantages. On busy days, or days where I don't want to wear much makeup, I love to sweep this over my lids and leave it at that; other days I use Bare Study as a primer, highlighter for my brow bone, or even on top of neutral shadows to give a look an extra bit of shimmer!

What do you think of MAC paint pots? What's your favourite shade?
