Mac Paint Pot in Painterly vs. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Just Beige (Limited Edition Shade)

Hey Everyone!
Today I am excited to share my thoughts with you on a couple of products! So Lets Get Started……

Mac Painterly Paint Pot vs. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Just Beige

So everyone that is apart of the beauty community has to have heard about Mac Paint Pots and Maybelline Color Tattoos, if you haven’t heard of either one of these products, crawl out from under the rock you have been living in and go get you some!!!

Anyways, I have used Mac’s Painterly Paint pot for about a year now. Painterly is a nude/skin toned cream eye shadow that Mac has had out for it seems like forever. I use this almost like a primer before applying my eyeshadow each day. I feel like it gives my eye shadows something to stick to and allows for the shadows pigmentation to shine through. I absolutely love this product, once I began using it I quickly realized that I would not use anything else for an eyeshadow base. Painterly is matte, which i believe is what allows the pigmentation of the eye shadows to come through, because the shadows are not competing with any shimmer from the paint pot. 

Maybelline Color Tattoos have been out for a while now and I have to say that I am HUGE collector of them. I have all of the regular shades as well as when they release the limited edition shades I purchase them!. I like the color tattoos because I think they give a great, inexpensive alternative to Mac’s Paint Pots. The color tattoos are very pigmented and they come in a wide variety of shades. This fall Maybelline has come out with a Limited Edition shade in the Color Tattoos called “Just Beige”, when I discovered this shade at CVS a light went off in my head…...Let’s see how this stacks up to Painterly Paint Pot!!!

Check out my Trusty Compare and Contrast Bubble! I like doing this because I feel it gives an easier way to look at what is good and bad when comparing 2 beauty products.

Well I hope that you liked this post! I enjoyed comparing the two. I do have to say that this is a great alternative to the Mac Paint Pot in Painterly, however I do not think I would replace it with the Color Tattoo in Just Beige, just for the one simple fact that it is not as creamy when applied as Painterly. If you are able to get your hands on it give it a try, it’s definitely good to have in your collection!
