M.A.C. Mega Metal Shadows VS. Jesse's Girl Baked powder shadows
Bottom Row MAC: Dandizette, Dalliance, Spectacle of yourself, Mating Call
Bottom: Without primer.
I went to Rite Aid today and found these Jesse's girl shadows for $3.99 each, which is regular price. I picked out the colors I liked.
When I got home I started trying them on and swatching them. The colors seemed very familiar, so I went through my recent MAC purchase and low and behold they are pretty similar in color only, but not texture.
MAC Mega Metals are more soft and buttery compared to Jesse's girl, which has a nice texture but is not as smooth as MAC.
Again these are not dead on dupes or anything, but they are close enough for me where I know I don't need both.
Also Jesse's girl has glittery fallout, which I experienced with all four colors, and I do not like looking like a disco ball on my face.
I prefer MAC, but if price is an issue for you, Jesse's girl would be a great alternative.
Let me know your thoughts?
