Review | Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye shadows

Saturday, 26 July 2014


Hello Pretty Honeybee's - Its time for another review!

Today, I am going to be sharing with you the miracle that is the Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shadows! I came across these recently online and was so excited to try them, so I picked up a couple of them for just £1.50 each in my recent 'Fragrance Direct' Haul.


I had heard a lot about these from American bloggers, but we didn't have as much option here in the UK to start with, so when I spotted them online I was so happy! You can also now pick them up in Boots and Superdrug where they will set you back about £5 a piece.


I chose the shades 'Timeless Black' & 'Eternal Gold' - there is a whole collection of shades, ranging from neutrals, to blacks, to bold & brights - something for everyone! 
I loved these shades as I feel they are very wearable & something I could easily incorporate into my everyday make up routine - whether it be summer or winter make up!


I absolutely love the packaging for these eye shadows - they have such a  luxe feel! The eye shadow comes in a gorgeous glass tub (which is quite heavy, actually!), with the product name embossed onto it - perfect! 
The lid is sleek and black and has the product name and shade name stickered onto it. I really love that you are able to see the product inside through the glass tub.


The consistency of the product is rather creamy in the tub but it feels and appears almost powder-like when applied, which works great for me!
The pay-off is brilliant, you can really build the colour up, or keep it subtle. I especially love 'Eternal Gold' - it is like nothing I've ever owned before, the pigment is fantastic and so shimmery!
These have been referred to as a perfect dupe for M.A.Cs 'paint pots' - and I totally agree! But, of course, these are much more affordable!'
The whole idea behind these is that they last and last and last once applied (hence the 'tattoo naming'!), and I was so impressed. I have to admit, I washed my face before 24 hours was up but they certainly lasted perfectly for the 12 hours that I wore them. 
I was worried that because they have a creamy texture that they might crease on my eyelid, but I needn't have worried as they stayed exactly where I applied them!


I love using my angled eye liner brush to apply 'Timeless black' along my upper lash line - much like a gel eye liner. It stays in place all day and is so deep black, I just love it!
I also like to use my angled liner brush to apply 'Eternal Gold' on my lower lash line and in the corners of my eyes - it is a perfect shade to highlight the eyes and make them appear large and wide open!


I am so pleased that I came across these, they work great for summer as they don't flake off if the temperature rises a little, and the range of shades is so impressive - there is something for every look! They are so easy to work with and very versatile - not to mention the ultimate payoff's and lasting time!
I have since ordered the shade 'Turquoise Forever' online & just cant wait for it to arrive!
You can find these in Boots and Superdrug, but if you don't mind waiting a couple of days for shipping you can also find them very cheaply online - Fragrance direct and eBay are great examples of this!

Have you tried the Maybelline Color Tattoo's? Which is your favourite shade?
