Maybelline Colour Tattoo Review

Dare to wear 24HR shadow

I was able to purchase 5 of the 10 available colours.
Here are my thoughts....
I love them!  They are easy to work with, buildable and they last all day...just like they say in their ads.
I am not sure about 24 hours though, as I do wash my makeup off before going to bed ;)

How to use:

Use finger or a stiff brush to pat colour on to lid ( I used the 239 MAC brush), blend out edges with a blending brush ( I used the 217 MAC brush).
You have lots of options for different looks.  You can use as a base for regular eyeshadow, which will help intensify the eyeshadow, or use on it's own. 

The neutral colours make a great base for an everyday look or intensify for a smokey evening look.
I just used Bad to the Bronze here with a darker shimmer brown liner.

The brighter colours are great on their own.  I used a bit of MAC black fluid line to define my lashes.  Eyeliner or liquid liner is another great option.

These could have been built up for a more intense look, but I was going out grocery shopping ;)

I am still thinking of purchasing some other colours, Bold Gold and Pomegranate Punch.
I have been hearing a lot of bad reviews on the Painted Purple, as the colour is not as intense and hard to blend.

Price:  $7.99 - $9.99.
For this review I give Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow 4 out of 5.
The only Con is that I wish there were more neutral colours, as they are comparable to MAC paintpots.
