I love using cream eyeshadow as my base for eye makeup and I own a few Mac paint pots as well as pretty much every shade in the Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo eyeshadow range. I think these are definitely great alternatives to the Mac paint pots, but at a fraction of a price.
Not long ago I came across a few posts by other bloggers talking about the Dare to Go Nude Collection by Maybelline featuring 6 limited edition 24 hour Colour Tattoo shades that was released in US in Spring 2014. I was lucky enough to get my hands on all 6 of the shades from one of the US eBay sellers (although very overpriced but well worth it!!).
I've had them now for around 3 weeks and been using them most days under my eyeshadows and I absolutely love them!! Unfortunately it appears that none of these will be added to the permanent line which is a shame really. All of the 6 shades are fab core shades that can be worn alone too for a day look. In my experience, the Maybelline 24 Colour Tattoo pots don't crease, however some reviews revealed that on some people they do crease. It could of course be due to very oily hooded lids.
My favourite shades from this collection are Stroke of Midnight (the very dark one!) and Pure Nude (the very light one!) Personally, I would prefer at least some of the shades to be matte, but it's really not a problem if you are layering them up for, say, a smokey eye.

Do you own any of these pots? Which one is your favourite?
