Fab! Splurge or Save? Sephora vs MAC

Will you Splurge or Save?

Sephora has just added what they call a “baked” eyeshadow trio. I am sure that its called baked to refer to the fact that this trio unlike their other ones in the past will hold up over time. 

With a new formula that boasts that it will give you the perfect smokey eye with a smooth finish, each color in this trio offers a look that has a large amount of a gold shimmer in it.  So, clearly don’t choose this trio if you want a matte look.

Sephora’s baked eyeshadow trios come in six different colorways. The one shown here is Meteor Shower. It may be a bit sheer and really shimmery when you first apply the shadow. But if used wet, each shade is intensified to give you more pigment on the eye; the darker shade can even be used as an eyeliner.

It sounds good, but we can’t help but notice that the Sephora brand is trying to offer a slightly lower costing version of this MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow (trio).

Take a look for yourself.  The difference here of course is formula and cost. You get what you pay for. If you want to save a few dollars, go with the Sephora brand ($17). We believe that the Sephora brand will not crack and break as it has been known to do in the past, since it was said they had changed the formula and employees have been raving about that fact. But you could also go with the MAC brand ($19.50). What do you think?
