I had been wanting to get one of the MAC paint pots, but the price sort of made me cringe. Naturally, I looked for a cheaper alternative. I have always loved Maybelline’s Color Tattoo shadows, but I had never found a matte skin colored one. Until now!
While looking through my local drugstore, I found this little gem! It’s in the color Creme de Rose number 91 and even though it seems more on the pink side in the packaging, it blends into a perfect nude color on my eyes.
I had only tried the color tattoo shadows in the shimmery versions, but I was positively surprised about the matt version too. It blends in perfectly with my skin color and makes all eye shadows I use on top pop like nothing else!
You can see it looks darker on my arm, but like I said, on my eyes it blends in very well.
My opinion: I think it’s a very good alternative to the MAC paint pots, at less than half the price (8€). I wish Maybelline would make more matt shades of these, as they are really good quality – definitely the best in the drugstore.
Have you ever tried these? Do you know any other drugstore cream shadows?
