This product is thinner than pastes, which I have, though it can be used that way - like thick paint can be used. In Barb’s video the appearance is more paint-like as she squeezes it out onto her...

Btw, this is the older product, first generation. More colors, non holographic, appears less fine. Not saying they’re worse or better, just different.
