Estee Lauder must have heard how much I love cream eyeshadows (LOL!) because they just released a new line of 10 called Double Wear ShadowCremes ($17.50 each).

When I checked them out today I had some serious MAC Paint Pot ($16.50) de ja vu/vu ja de.
If I were to close my eyes and touch a Double Wear shadow, I’d probably mistake it for a Paint Pot. They have a similar medium-weight feel to them, and they even look like Paint Pots, too, having a rich pigmentation that, like Paint Pots, lasts for hours without budging a bit. They’re like MAC Paint Pots in almost every way beyond the packaging and that they cost a buck more.
I was swatching the colors at a counter when a few of the shades reminded me of last year’s Paint Pots from the MAC Fafi collection.
I think Pink Blush looks like a lot like Perky, Sea Mist resembles Rollickin’ and Vintage Violate bears a striking resemblance to Nice Vice. If you missed the Fafi Paint Pots last year, this might be a great opportunity to score some near-dupes.
And this isn’t a Fafi dupe, but doesn’t Estee Lauder’s Precious Jade remind you of MAC Fluidline gel liner in Sweet Sage (a shimmery greenish gold)?

I *love* the MAC Paint Pots and cream shadows in general. Even though these cost one dollar more than the MAC ones I still think there’s some really hot colors. I’ve my eye on both Antique Gold and Blue Velvet!
What do you think of these? Cute? Not so cute?
The new playlist
This afternoon while I was looking for music to revamp my running playlist I came across Keri Hilson’s Turnin Me On. Have you heard it? I’ve already watched the video about 10 times today, and now I’m kinda obsessed Keri’s makeup in it. Girlfriend’s pale, shiny lip and smokey eye combo looks hot!
