Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr: Review, Photos, Swatches and FOTD!
I had fun this weekend playing about with these cream-gel eye shadows from Maybelline, the long lasting Color Tattoo 24 hr pots. They're designed to be worn on their own, as a primer or cream eyeliner and, in the case of the lighter shades, can also be dabbed over another shadow.I was sent four shades to play with and first impressions are good: they come in a shallow glass jar with a black lid, similar to Chanel's Illusion D'ombre shadows but completely different consistency wise - these are more like
They feel smooth, creamy and lightweight, and are designed to spread easily and resist water and creasing. I haven't worn them all yet but from what I've seen so far, the colour payoff varies from shade to shade, so I'd recommend having a wee play with the testers before you buy.
Of the shades I have, Turquoise Forever is very nearly opaque in one swipe, while Permanent Taupe and Immortal Charcoal are buildable. Endless Purple has the least colour payoff: it's quite sheer and applies a little patchily, but in the photos I'm wearing it underneath a couple of purple shadows from NYC's budget-tastic Cupcakes and Coffee quad, and I was happy enough with the result. But if you were only going to go for one of these, I'd opt for one of the other shades.
You'll find Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr in Boots and selected chemists, priced at €7.99. As well as the four shades here, they come in Eternal Gold, Eternal Silver and On and On Bronze - I quite fancy the sound of all three! Are any of them calling your name?
