Bare Study is a gorgeous light pink champagne colour that has a glossy sheen but no harsh glitter particles. These, as I am aware, are primarily targeted as eye shadow bases which prolong the wear of your eyeshadows and make them vibrant. This works for all of my eyeshadows except for my MAC ones ( can you believe that?) which still end up creasing despite the £11 price tag.
I also love, as I have been doing everyday lately, is applying a sheer ( or buildable) wash of colour of my eyelids with this then applying mascara and that's my eyeshadow base done!This will last all day, for me at least 10 hours, without creasing and is a very natural and simple alternative to eyeshadows. (This is shown in the photograph above minus the mascara!)
Another use I have found is for a highlight. This can be used on your brow bone, inner corner or even patted to the top of your cheeks for an iridescent 'glow' .
Overall, If I hadn't made it clear, this is a fabulous product and one of my personal favourites from MAC. At £14.50 these aren't cheap but having owned it for almost a year and a half, using it most days, and still having loads left, this is definitely worth the investment - being much preferred to the regular MAC eyeshadows.
Have you tried MAC paint pots? Also, do you like this style or swatch/review?
