Sometimes you can find perfect products in the drugstore department and Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows are exactly these gems. If you have been reading my blog for some time already you know I love cream eyeshadows and these are definitely one of my favorites.
Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24 Hr Cream Gel Shadows ($6.99 or £4.99) have made a huge hit in the makeup world right after they had been launched and practically everyone has raved about them. And actually there’s no wonder these eyeshadows are so popular – there’s just a perfect balance of amazing quality and very affordable price.
I have to admit that over the past few years Maybelline being a part of L’oreal’s group of companies has gone a huge way up in terms of quality and diversity of their products. I can’t stop mentioning gorgeous products they produce and innovative solutions they offer to makeup lovers all over the world. And their Color Tattoo eyeshadows are definitely their most prominent makeup achievement up to date – this says a lot.
With these eyeshadows company promises 24 hours of wear, no creasing and vibrant colors. And I must say that it’s all true. These eyeshadows are very very long-lasting. I doubt there’s anyone who wears makeup for 24 hours, but these eyeshadow have survived 16-hour long off-road driving and there was zero creasing on me. The color pay-off is very descent in most cases and remains quite vibrant for the rest of the day, slightly fading by the end of the day.
Due to how long-lasting these eyeshadows are I love to use them as a base for powder eyeshadows. As Maybelline eyeshadows are in a cream form they are very easy to apply with both fingers and brushes, the product distributes easily and evenly and it’s a huge plus. For more color intensity there’s a possibility to layer the product – it stays on decently, but I personally wouldn’t advise it because it may lead to some cakey-ness and patchiness. By the way the color line is really huge offering a choice of different color effects and textures, from metallics to mattes. Practically everyone will be able to find something suitable and appropriate.
I own five Maybelline cream eyeshadows of the line and I am very happy with each of them – Pink Gold, Endless Purple, 24K Gold, On and On Bronze and Mauve Crush.
As you may see on swatches all the eyeshadows I own proved to have very descent payoff and amazing color vibrancy! From left to right: 24K Gold is a gorgeous gold color, makes every eye color pop and can be an amazing base for bronze, gold, taupe and rose eyeshadows. The next color – Endless purple is very nice, deep lilac-purple color which I find to be the most beautiful underneath silver eyeshadows as it adds a breathtaking purple hue to these colors. On and On Bronze is obviously the most raved about cream eyeshadow of the bunch – its a very flattering rich bronze color – gorgeous on its own as well as a base, ideal for day-time smoky eyes and the easiest way to do a perfect eye makeup look. Then, Mauve Crush is a very unique color – its something in-between blue, purple and grey as it gives a very subtle but still noticeable color transition, applies easily and works best with a colored eyeliner. And finally, one of my absolute favorites is the Pink Gold, that works perfectly with my cool pink skin undertone and look very refreshing on the eyes.
The fact that I own five of these eyeshadow formula supports my opinion on them. Everything about Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows is perfect – the wear time, color intensity and application. Whenever I need to make a quick and beautiful eye makeup, whenever I want to be sure that my eyeshadow looks good and stays all day, whenever I want to be confident and look great – I reach for these amazing eyeshadows. I recommend trying them out and start with either On and On Bronze or Pink Gold as the most flattering on every skin tone and suitable for every eye color. I’m sure that the next day you will rush for the other colors 😉
