I am currently using MAC Paint Pot BARE STUDY as my to go eye shadow base. I want to buy other colors but I find it expensive to collect. When I hear that Maybelline released a cream gel shadow that creates super-saturated color at much cheaper price, I was thrilled. I went to buy these four colors. I was actually eyeing for the  Fierce & Tangy color and Tenacious Teal but these were the only colors left, so  I bought all of them.
From Upper left: 55 Inked in Pink, 20 Painted Purple, 75 Electric Blue, and 30 Pomegranate Punk.

1. 55 INKED IN PINK - I really thought that this is similar to MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study but this is much darker/warmer. MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study is similar to Maybelline 70 Barely Branded.   The color is more on a warm pink frosted, metallic finish.

2. 20 PAINTED PURPLE - The photo looks a little bit blue but it is actually a violet-ish purple. The color is similar to the purple of the MAC Odd Purple  that I have but not as shimmery. I used this in my friend's prom as a base only. The consistency is disappointing.

3. 75 ELECTRIC BLUE - This is a frosted, shimmery dark blue cream eye shadow. I find it twice darker than the MAC Frosted in Submarine that I have but similar to MAC Naval Blue (both are powder products).

4. 30 POMEGRANATE PUNK - Pomegranate punk is more of a dark maroon - burgundy with a shimmery finish. This is similar to MAC Paint Pot Artifact ( I am not sure if this color is already discontinued by MAC). If you have the MAC Ice Parade Palette, pomegranate punk is a touch lighter than the festive delight.

CONSISTENCY:  This is creamy and smooth but maybe it depends on the color because painted purple a disappointment. You have to tap and build to apply to get the consistency that you want to build. It won't be use as an eye shadow but rather I consider this as a base only. The three colors too are lightweight and thinner.

COLOR: The color pay-off is beautiful except for the painted purple. I'd rather use my MAC Odd Couple than painted purple. Similar but difficult to build up the color.

LONGEVITY: Again, because I felt that painted purple does not last that long, I used it as a base only with eye primer just to make sure. I used pomegranate punk  in my friend's daughter's graduation and it lasted the whole day even without eye primer and exposed to sun so as Ink in Pink.

VERDICT : This is a good range of Maybelline's. This is affordable for 4g a pot at approx. $5-6 (P250-300) compared to other MAC paint pot at $22 (P800-1000) for 5g. a pot. I highly recommend this but make sure to swatch first before buying. I believe they have samples available in-store.

I hope this review helps. If you have used this especially other colors that I have, please let me know since I wanna buy more that are highly recommended.

Until Next Time!!!



  1. I have Gold Rush and the white frosty one, I forgot the name. I really like them because they provide a good base for any eyeshadow to hold on to. Is this available in the Philippines? 'coz I bought mine in the bazaar and I would love to purchase more color.


    1. Hi Jean! I bought it here in Canada. When I asked Maybelline Asia before, they said it will be released in Singapore by January 2013 but not yet in Philippines... I heard there are lots of people selling it online... I love your makeup looks... You are so pretty!
