Mac Rubenesque Paint Pot Dupe!

I don't know if you've guys noticed the box on the left, but my product of the moment is Mac's Paint Pot in Rubenesque. Rubenesque is a peachy base with gold/champagne shimmer. I LOVE IT.

So, imagine my surprise when I was riffling through my makeup collection and came across a Revlon dupe. I own almost every Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow quad, and I've only use a few colors out of a few quads. Anyways, my Va Va Va Bloom quad has a color that is basically an EXACT dupe for Rubenesque. It's the THIRD color from the left in the quad. They looked really similar in the pot, but when I swatched them, they were twins!

Mac's Rubenesque is $16.50 while Revlon's quad is about $5.50. STEAL! Go pick this up!

*I hear that the indellible cream shadows at are exact dupes for paint pots also, but they retail about 9 dollars. I'll be trying them out to see soon

What do you guys think?


  1. Wow, it's like a perfect match! How are the other colours?

  2. Identical, I really can't see a difference, how to the Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadows fair as far as texture? Some cream shadows are really oily.

  3. @aaddictedbeauty: I like the other colors also. I haven't worn them on my lids yet, but swatched they're pretty nice

    @Daphne: Texture wise, the revlon one is creamier, meaning yes it is a bit more oily than the mac one. I hear they crease, but I really can't tell the difference because I've never had a problem with creasing. Do wear a primer underneath though.

  4. I love these cream shadows, so I'm going to buy that shade tomorrow! Thanks for the post!

  5. Thanks I'll add this to my paint pot dupe list I already have on my blog all I'm missing is soft ochre and groundwork dupes for what they have on their website right now.
