Hey guys!


Usually my everyday make-up consists of mascara only. And sometimes to even out the eyelids’s color I use МАС Paint Pot in the color PAINTERLY. This product beautifully covers up all the reddening, discoloration, blood vessels and gives me a beautiful light creamy pink color.

When I almost run out of this product I found a written blog where a girl said that Maybelline Color Tattoo were an absolute dupe for the MAC Painterly. That was the moment when I realised that I definitely needed to give Maybelline a go.




Product says.

Innovative pigment technology for a super-saturated colour

Staying power up to 24 hours

Creamy gel texture for intense luminosity without the colour fades

Perfect eye make-up in order to draw attention to itself


Outer look.


The familiar round weighty glass jar.




Creme de Rose 91. It’s a muted matte beige pink color. It almost looks like a light skin color.



Creamy-gel texture that is softer than #40 Taupe also by MNY. The eyeshadows are easy to get on the brush as well as on fingers.


Staying power

These eyeshadows last for about 5-6 hours and then start to crease. That’s why I don’t use them as the eyeshadow base.



$7 but you are sure to find it on sales




Total look


My verdict


These eyeshadows are amazing! It’s a real must have and everyone should have one!


  • The color is tender and natural. It will even out your skin color hiding any redness.

  • This product will make your eyes look bigger

  • No cakey finish

  • Smooth to apply and blend

  • Buildable formula

  • No dryness, tightening or tugging




General characteristics:


In terms of the packaging, I like MAC products more. The top lid closes tight yet it is easy to open. MAC is creamier in texture and is a little bit harder to apply unto the skin. MAC products in a jar stays fresh longer than Maybelline, as Maybelline dries out too quickly.





The MAC product looks more pinkish in a jar. At the same time I can see NO difference on my eyes.


The bottom line:

  • Maybelline Color Tattoo is a good dupe for the MAC Painterly. On the eyes they look absolutely identical.

Thanks for reading! Wink
