I really like the packaging of the Paint Pots, simple glass jars with a black lid. Although when standing up it is hard to tell which shade is which, I store all my cream shadows upside down so that they don't dry out and it also means I can see each shade colour.
The texture of them are just the right amount of creamy base without out being too creamy or too dry. I have both matte and shimmery shades and each apply easily onto the eyes. I normally apply them with my ring finger but also apply well with a blending brush.
The first shade I got was Bare Study which is the perfect champagne bases for eyeshadow and makes them appear more pigmented on the eyes. My next shade was Painterly which is a pink toned skintone colour which is perfect for using as a base to any eyeshadows and cancels out any redness or discolouration on the eye. The next shade I got was Rubenesque which is another shimmery base, this one is a orange toned bronzey colour which has a pink tone to it as well. This one is my least you out of the lot but it is a great base for a bronzey smokey eye. Finally my latest addition is Groundwork, which is a mostly matte toned brown which has a sheen to it which looks beautiful on it's own or paired with another shadow. I love wearing it with MAC Soba eyeshadow.
