Spend vs. Save : MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow Duo

Want to try MAC's Mineralized Eyeshadow but find it too expensive?



This is a comparison of the the eyeshadow quality, not the shade/color.

STAYING POWER :
Same (without primer)

TEXTURE :
Elianto is finely milled than MAC,
the latter has a chunky texture

COLOR - PAY OFF :
MAC is more pigmented

TIPS:
Be careful not to drop Mineralized / Baked products coz they tend to break easily.
To make eyeshadow colors look vibrant, you can either use an Eyeshadow Primer or slightly damp your eyeshadow brush (foiling method).

Sorry my Elianto eyeshadow looks weird, this is one of my faves.
I dropped it, and pressed it again using alcohol and a drop of oil.

Elianto is not a bad proxy. It's really quite cheap but pigmented.
