These are so pigmented, and are brilliant as a base for an eyeshadow, or even on it's own it looks really nice. They are really blendable aswell, so you can have a nice sheer layer, or a nice pigmented thick one. These are quite similar to the MAC paintpots, although i feel that the MAC ones are a bit more blendable. But apart form that, i think these are great dupes for them! I would highly recommend you go out and buy yourself one if you haven't already, as they are only £4.99 at Boots, which is such a good deal as they are honestly so fab.
