I chose ‘Covet’ from Urban Decay and ‘turquoise vibe’ from Maybelline as they are the most similar colours to compare. Upon swatching I actually found Maybelline to come across a lot creamier although Urban Decay is a lot better for a smokier look as it can be smudged better. Both pencils are extremely pigmented and have a nice metallic finish with Covet having tiny glitter pieces in it as well.
Currently there are only 4 Chromatics pencils to choose from and they are £4.49, whilst Urban Decay have at least 50 so their range is a lot broader and they are £14. I will always be a fan of Urban Decay, don’t get me wrong but I think as a cheaper alternative these chromatics are just as good! ♥
Urban Decay pencils are available here.
