Drugstore Alternative #3 - MAC Paint Pots


I know this is a dupe talked about by many, and quite the obvious one; however I really wanted to give my opinion on which is a better investment.

So, although I have two completely uncomparable colours, I'm going to compare the formulation of the products. The MAC Paint Pots are far wetter than the Maybelline Colour Tattoos however due to this apply and blend much easier and of course are also much easier to build up. Althought the pigmentation in the MAC Paint pots really lets me down as you have to apply way more than one layer to receive a decent amount of pigmentation. However, with the Maybelline Colour Tattoos I apply a quick layer and the pigmentation is insane and the colours are so vivid! The colour tattoos also last throughout the whole day without touch ups and are a perfect primer/base for eyeshadow. The shade range of the MAC Paint Pots is much larger and of course better than the colour tattoos. In terms of packaging, I do much prefer the paint pots since they look really elegant where as the maybelline packaging looks slightly cheap. Despite that, you really can't complain since they only retail at £4.99 (used to be £3.99) and the MAC Paint pots retail at £15.50! Therefore I completely recommend the Maybelline Colour Tattoos!

Verdict: SAVE
