I ran into Walgreens to pick something up really quick but being the beauty junkie I am, I have to check out the makeup section no matter what! One thing that caught my eye is this cream eyeshadow by Maybelline. The packaging instantly reminded me of MAC's paintpots but half the price ($6.99). There were so many beautiful colors I wanted to try them all but I chose a beautiful purple color called "painted purple". It seems as though its so new that its not on Maybelline's website yet. I haven't tested it on my eyes yet but I wanted to show you all a swatch of the color. This swatch was after several passes...so I am not so sure this is comparable to MAC. I really hope it works out because I would love to use this color as a base. This eyeshadow is supposed to last for 24 hours. I'll do a follow up post later so I can give you a more accurate review if this is a dupe for MAC's paint pots or not so stay tuned! UPDATE
I've had this on all day and it has decent wear. I would say its decent overall. So if you are on a budget I give these the green light. They are not as thick as MAC paint pots but I think are usable. They glide on pretty creamy. I used mine as a base for my purple eyeshadow pigment. On my left eye I used elf's eyeshadow primer first and my right eye has no primer.
