We Found A Dupe For MAC's Bare Study Paint Pot & It's $12 Cheaper

June 26, 2013 by Katelyn Holland
shefinds | beauty

I bought the MAC Bare Study Paint Pot ($18.50) because it’s a staple for any makeup collection. The beige cream shadow has a soft, pearly finish that works for nearly every skin tone. It instantly makes your eyes look brighter and more awake. It works as a great primer for eyeshadow, but on days I’m feeling lazy, I usually wear it by itself. If I only got to pick 5 makeup products to use for the rest of my life, Bare Study would definitely make the list.

If you are looking for a dupe for MAC’s Bare Study, I suggest the Maybelline Color Tattoo ($5.94) in the shade Barely Branded. I picked it up at the drugstore because I was drawn to the color, and when I opened it up, I realized it looked identical to Bare Study (which is probably why I liked it so much). The Maybelline Color Tattoo is also a cream shadow with a light-reflecting, pearl finish. The major difference between the 2 products is the texture: Barely Branded is much thicker and has a heavier application. It has more of a color payoff, which is a plus or a minus depending on the look you want to achieve. Bare Study also has gold undertones, while Barely Branded is more pink.

I’ve had both these products for a few months, and I think it’s worth noting that the texture of Bare Study is as creamy and soft as it was the day I opened it. Barely Branded, on the other hand, has gotten a little clumpy.

I prefer MAC’s Bare Study because it’s lighter and more subtle, but it really depends on your personally preference and skin type. I find that Bare Study doesn’t have to blended in as much and gives a light wash of color, which I prefer. My sister likes Barely Branded better because she has oily eyelids and finds that Bare Study creases on her. Have you tried out these 2 products? Which one is your favorite?
