I like this product okay, it does an acceptable job of concealing; however I think that the MAC concealer in the glass bottle with the pump does a better job. I do like that you can put excess product back into the tube- Bravo for that!

Great color, less than fave container!
Tags +Bold Color, Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, eyelid color
I ordered this about 6 months ago. I LOVE the color Bamboom and the staying power of the color but... The container is very aggravating!!! Omgness, I've tried squeezing it at the very end to get what I need out but it keeps going and going and going!!! By the time I'm done applying it to one lid, a third of the tube has squirted out! I'd suggest putting it all in a very small container around the house with a lid!! I love the product.... Just not the container!

Best ever eye shadow base
Tags +Bold Color, Blendable, Crease resistant
I have been using the Stillife Paint as an eyeshadow base for years, and I love it. I wear a lot of strong color, and this grabs the bolder colors and holds them for great saturation and staying power. I like that it is faintly pearly, doesn't crease, and goes on evenly with fingertip application. A great cream to powder texture.

amazing stuff
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant, primer and brow highlighter
This stuff is downright amazing!! I am older and can't tolerate all that sparkly stuff the younger girls wear so this adds a beautiful, stunning, subtle pearl finish to my eyes. It makes my eyes pop and it holds my eyeshadow in place all day. My eyes have not looked this pretty since I was in my 20's. Love you people at MAC!

Love it!
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant
A few years ago, I didn't even know "paints" existed until a MAC artist placed it on me before adding eye shadow. I've been using it ever since. I am still pleased with how well it goes on (nice and creamy). On work days, it's my base before putting on eye shadow. It makes the colors pop and stay on all day. On weekends, I will wear it alone for a nice neutral shimmer. A must have. Will change the way you see your eye shadow!

Perfect under shadows!
Tags +Crease resistant, under eye shadows
I have used this product under my eye shadows for years. It gives a neutral base and since it's a cream, gives the shadow something to hold on to.

Love it!
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant, oily eyelids
I have never used MAC products before, but after having issues with my eye makeup, I was desperate to try something new. I have oily eyelids and my makeup would completely melt off throughout the day. I spoke to a MAC rep and they suggested using the Paints. It arrived right on schedule and I have been in love with it ever since!! I was surprised of how small the tube was but you only use a very tiny amount so it does last a long time. I am looking forward to trying other products as I am VERY pleased with this one!

NEVER stop making this!
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant
The mac paint's are MAC original. Although they've done away with some fabulous shades, they still sell basic neutral shades. I hope they NEVER stop making this product.
A little goes a very long way, apply and blend quickly, it dries quick and doesn't BUDGE! For this reason, it is a staple in my pro kit and personal beauty arsenal. Love. Love. Love. this product.

Best Primer I've Ever Used.
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant, oily lids
I would give this product a total slam dunk rating of 5 if it came in a plastic squeeze tube. The metal packaging causes WAY too much product to be dispensed. I dab my brush on the open tube to try to prevent this. Such a great product for people with oily lids. It really needs updated packaging.

Love This Paint
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant, every day
My favorite paint, this is my go to look when I am in a minimalist mode. Makes the lid look almost nude but better! Slight shimmer but mostly the best eye shadow for the "no make-up make up look!"

Excellent shadow base
Tags +Highly pigmented, Crease resistant
Ladies and gents you will love this product, especially when paired with a similar shade family of eye shadow. I tried the same combination of shadow w/ paint pot in painterly, and then again with the paint untitled and what a difference! I will definitely be purchasing more of these. My only complaint is that in the beginning of using my paint, the product would not stop coming out of the tube until my third time using it. If MAC can figure that out I would be thrilled!

Great primer
Tags +Crease resistant, primer
I purchased this years ago because a MAC MUA told me it primes and holds colour better than the primer does. She was absolutely right!! As a hairstylist I find that after doing hair colour on clients my face is a total grease ball by the end of the day. My eyelids don't even budge when I use this as a primer!! So if you're in need a a primer or a good base eyeshadow colour this is perfect. It will last all day long no matter how greasy your eyelids get!

Works great as a shadow base
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant
I've been using bare canvas as an eye shadow primer for years. Creates a smooth, crease-free base that lasts all day. I've tried a other primers from competitors, and keep coming back to bare canvas. I LOVE this product.

Great eyeshadow base
Tags +Blendable, Crease resistant
Bare Canvas is the perfect color for an eyeshadow base on my NW20/N1 skin. It cancels out any redness on my eyelid while making eyeshadow colors pop and last! Get it. I apply by squeezing out a small amount onto the back of my hand and then using my index finger to apply from lashline to browbone. It blends beautifully and sets in a comfortable amount of time. This tube will last a long time!

I love the paint that I received granted that the bamboom color was a little more plane brown rather than having a pinkish tint to it. But other than that I love them. Very smooth and covers good.

They're awesome!
Tags +Blendable
Love it! I have Sublime Nature and it's perfect for a simple, natural eye with a little finishing powder dusted over it to set. For night I like to use it with charcoal brown eyeshadow in the crease, thick brows and black lip mix. Looks great alone but can support a bold look, I plan on buying many more of these!

Great Stuff!
Tags +Crease resistant, everyday wear, base
I know this is supposed to be a primer or base and definitely helps eye shadow colors pop whilst keeping shadows in place all day without creasing, but I use Stilife on its own as an eye shadow everyday on my medium/olive skin!
This goes a long way and usually lasts me well over a year and every time i go back to buy it I always pray they have not discontinued the product.
This is a make up bag staple for me and highly recommend it!
