Daily Dupes | MAC and Maybelline

The Splurge- MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
The Dupes- Maybelline Color Tattoo in Just Beige

Both of these are perfect all over eye lid colors. Cream shadows are great because they last a long time and come out beautiful on your eyelids. These are both "skin tone" shades. The MAC paint pot is more of a pinky tone and the Color Tattoo is more of a yellow tone. They both work great as bases for any eyeshadow look. For the drugstore, the Maybelline Color Tattoo is great quality but it is more dry that the MAC formula. So it all comes down to personal preference. I personally like the paint pot better because it's better for my skin tone. But sometimes I like to use the Color Tattoo because it's cheaper, and sometimes when my lids are oiler I like dryer cream formula.

Have you tried either of these? What do you think?

    1. They're great products! And I think it's worth it if there isn't a dupe for it at the drugstore.

  4. I have 3 Color Tattoos (
    http://7hillsofbeauty.blogspot.com/2013/05/maybelline-color-tattoo-24hr-cream-gel.html), now I feel like I need to find this champagne color! I don't have any paint pots, but I am really happy with the Color Tattoos' quality and I like the way they look on my eyes, so probably I will stick with them (and save a lot of money ;) )

    1. True! I have a paint pot in bare study. Which is basically just a nude color. And I can't find a color like that similar at the drugstore so I splurged.

  6. I love the Maybelline Color Tattoos, I am waiting for Barely Branded to be released in the UK, we don't have it yet! And I don't really want to splurge on a MAC Paintpot if I know there is a dupe out there, haha!
    Lovely post, and blog - I followed!
