I think this is the one thing today I brought that I didn't need. On looking at it when I got home I saw that it is pretty simple and boring but maybe it is a good everyday product. I personally think that you might as well get one of the other paint pots as they are much more unique. I am guessing that this is very similar to painterly but I don't have that one so I can't comment. I loved the way it applied in the swatch and it was rather hard to remove after only being on my skin for a minute. But If you are looking for an everyday eye makeup base then why not try this one.
