Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow

5 Dec

Hello everyone! As promised from Twitter a review on the Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream eyeshadows.

Description: Color Tattoos promise 24 hour hold with bold colors and is available in 10 shades. Colors are 02 Tenacious Teal and 10 Fierce & Tangy. Tenacious Teal is a bright teal shade with silver glitter and is very shimmery. Fierce & Tangy is a bright matte orange shade with bits of gold glitter (not very noticable).

Review: Can I just say that I love cream shadows but they crease like no tomorrow on my oily lids? I was tempted not to get these but hey 24 hour hold that’s gotta be some good stuff right? Luckily the product did what it was advertised for lasted for the usual 8 hour shift and beyond! Imagine my surprise when I say that it didn’t budge, move, or crease but by the 8 hour mark the colors were starting to fade (totally acceptable). These are similar to MAC paintpots in terms of packaging. I don’t have MAC paintpots or MakeUp ForEver Aqua Creams so I don’t know how they would compare but I’m very impressed with this product. The creams are very pigmented so a little goes a long way and I will definately be picking up the rest of the line (they had a gorgeous purple and burgandy shade). Overall, a great find from the drugstore.

Cost: $9.99 @ local drugstores and supercenters

Would I recommend this product? I totally would they do promise what they promise and I will definately be picking up more colors from this line.

        I will (as soon I can find them in my country or online)… I love cream eyeshadows, and now that you say that for 8 hours (i don’t need them for more anyway) are okay.. yay!

    I have two questions about these: Do they last at least 12 hours (I need more than 8 hrs of wear time)? And is it possible to use them as a gel eyeliner? I saw these in Rite Aid today, but didn’t get them because I thought they wouldn’t be so great.

      Hello!
      They do last 12 hours (and beyond!) and you can use them as a gel liner but I would recommend setting with a powder eyeshadow if you have oily lids. There will be some fading throughout the day but the color is still visible.
      These are great for drugstore finds!
