MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork Review/Swatch + Comparison to Maybelline Color Tattoo Shadows

 Hi! This is my first ever paint pot and i was super super super excited to get it. I do have all the neutral colors of the Maybelline Color Tattoo Shadows but Mac has a much larger selection of colors.

 I got the Paint Pot in Groundwork because i saw how gorgeous it looked on MissGlamorazzi in her March 2012 Favorites video. I got it for $17.50 on the site. I wouldn't recommend risking and ordering it from another seller!  Mac describes the paint pots as
A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners.
Ground work is described as a mid-tone neutral taupe in a satin finish.

 Sorry if these pictures look washed out but it is pretty accurate! My lighting is just off by a little. Mac paint pots are so so so creamy and long wearing since i tried my friends and also in the store!
I was scared that it would be duped by the raved about Color Tattoos but i'm so glad they are not similar or i would have felt like i wasted money. Tough as Taupe is much darker and more grey toned and Bad to the Bronze in comparison is more metallic finished and more bronze.

I have so happy with my purchase out of the 4 products i ordered. I don't think i have splurged money for myself for no reason with makeup for no reason so it feels bitter sweet.
