The Sua Mei Greasepaint Palette comes in a clear plastic container, it may be a bit too basic, but I find it super-comfortable to use, plus the little pleasant bonus - after you run out of the greasepaint you can use the container again to store your favorite loose eyeshadows or lipsticks. The palette features 12 various cream colors and each section holds 2,5 g (0.09 oz) of the product.

What is greasepaint? It is basically a well-pigmented oil - based makeup product, something like a full-coverage concealer, but comes in different shades. The greasepaint makeup is usually used for theatrical performances or in SFX makeup industry, but I think the 12 Colors Greasepaint Palette turns out to be very useful during Halloween holidays. It is super easy and fun to recreate any iconic Halloween makeup using this palette. You can use all of these wonderful colors all over your face and body, play around with the product, mixing the colors together to get any desirable shade or even add it to your foundation or lipstick. Greasepaint products are oily, so in order to last longer on the skin, they should be applied on a well-prepared skin and set with a powder.

The Sua Mei Greasepaint Palette contains the following twelve colors, they don't have the `official` names, but this is how I would describe them to you: Gold (shimmer), Silver (shimmer), Terracotta, Cobalt Blue, Emerald Green, Teal, Black, Classic Red, Coral Red, Yellow and White. When I first swatches of the colors on my hand they were a bit too greasy, and shiny and turned out to be less pigmented than they really were. The weather was super hot that day, so the colors literally `melted` in my container, but after I cooled down the palette in the fridge the colors looked brighter. Some of the colors from the palette look less pigmented, but overall I was surprised with the intensity of the swatches.

I think this is a good palette to do a costume makeup for a party or just for fun, the Sua Mei Greasepaint Palette is easy to use and contains all the shades you`ll need to recreate the most creative makeup ideas.
