Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Gel-Cream Eyeshadow

As much as I love the look of MAC Paint Pots, I do not own any.  There isn't really any reason for this, other than I've never really paid much attention to them when I have been at the MAC counter.  Only when I watch beauty gurus on YouTube do I see the products being used and think 'Ooh I fancy one of those!'

When I heard about the new Maybelline Color Tattoos and people compared them to MACs Paint Pots, I was keen to try one out.  I don't live near a MAC store so the idea of nipping to my local Boots was much more appealing.

The colour range stocked at my nearest Boots was pretty poor, with only 3 colours.  I plumped for 35 On and On Bronze.  It is a gorgeous metalic bronze colour with a hint of copper.

I am actually really impressed with the texture, quality and pigmentation of the product.  It is super creamy and therefore it glides on really smoothly, with a finger or a brush.  It is also really easy to blend.  The colour is also highly pigmented.  This is great as it means that it can be worn on it's own for a quick sweep of colour or as a base for other shadows.

In terms of it's longevity, I am not sure if it does last for 24 hours or not.  This is because I wash my face at least twice a day! But I wore it for a night out last night and not only did it stay put, it didn't crease and it held my other eyeshadows on too.

I really recommend this product, and although I cannot comment on the other colours, I highly suggest you check these out.  I have my eyes on 'Permanent Taupe', 'Eternal Silver' and 'Endless Purple'.

Have any of you tried these out? Can you recommend any colours?

Much love,
