If you have been keeping up with my recently, and saw my Everday Makeup Routine video [if not, I linked it for you!]
You would have seen that I love these Maybelline Color Tattoos!!
But, how to they match up to everyone's beloved MAC Paint Pots?!
Do they really last 24 hours?!
[I also have Tough as Taupe, but I forgot about it when I took the picture!]
The packaging claims they last 24 hours, but I will lay that to rest right now. They do not last 24 hours on me, even with a primer underneath. But do they last a whole work day [8ish hours] and maybe a little more?? YES!
The formulation is very creamy, and easy to work with, especially for anyone who isn't as skilled with a brush and powder eyeshadows. These can be used as a base, or alone for a simple look, just like I did here!!
For me, I still have to use a primer before wearing these, even as a base. I don't know if it's because my eyelids are just too oily, or these crease easily.
Compared to the MAC Paint Pots, these have more of a oily consistency, than the Paint Pots which feel more creamy, and almost seem to set like a powder.
I think Maybelline was really smart to release this range to compete with MAC, and give people who can't afford MAC, an option!!
I do have to say, I love these, and when I wear them people always compliment me! I always apply these with my fingers, because I found that's the easiest way for me.
These retail for $6.99 each [in most stores, prices may vary]
They also have an amazing color range!! These are without a doubt something to check out next time you are looking at low end/drugstore makeup!!
I'm always looking for a good primer to wear under my shadows, I usually use Too Faced Shadow Insurance. What primer is your holy grail??
