Colorbar Expensive Pink Eyeshadow- Dupe for Mac Plum Dressing?

Written by Guest Writer Swastika

I love MAC products, period. But this love affair doesn’t translate well with my bank account you know. The relationship between them is like a lover and a disapproving mother and the poor me is stuck in-between. So when I come across a dupe for them, I spare no time before picking it up. This time I got lucky with a Colorbar eyeshadow- Expensive pink which is very similar to MAC Plum dressing. As you see, the name too is a rip-off of another MAC favourite. How about I call this a “2way rip”? . A rip off name and a rip off color..But, who is complaining! Certainly I am not.

Generally speaking, plum-colored eyeshadows are quite versatile and among my must-haves. Colorbar Expensive Pink is also a pinky plum shade with a sheen to it just like Mac Plum Dressing. I think it differs just slightly, in the way that Plum Dressing is a tad more purple, but honestly on the lid it’s really one and the same thing.

Speaking of Colorbar eye-shadows, the quality is very good for the price it retails at. There is no fallout, it applies like a dream and is easy to blend. It might not have the ka-boom instant pigmentation of Mac, but is still very well pigmented and a couple of swipes ensures great color.  I don’t know if I am the only one, but I think the finish is quite similar to MAC. Staying power is not superb, which is a common problem across Colorbar products but keeping the price into consideration it is definitely worth a buy for sure !
