Until a few months ago I was a bit of a makeup snob only buying mid to high end brands but recently Ive been impressed by several 'drugstore' brands which I guess is proof that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.
Although the Maybelline Color Tattoo and Mac Paint Pot shades I have here (maybelline on and on bronze and MAC Nubile *limited edition*) are nothing alike in colour, they are very comparable in terms of wear and texture.
Both are cream shadows, the maybelline color tattoo is slightly more creamier than Mac but both are opaque. In terms of wear, these do not budge. I do wear these with a primer as my skin is quite oily but they both stay put without creasing. Both have glass pots with plastic lids but obviously there is a big price difference between the two.
MAC is £14.50 for 5g whereas Maybelline is £4.99 for around 4g. I love both of these products - the only real difference for me when it comes to purchasing is shades/finishes. Mac's permanent pots consist of neutral/more wearable shades and Maybelline have more brighter ones available but both brands are well worth a look!
Have you tried any of these items?
