Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hours Eyeshadow

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi everyone!

It’s the rainy season again here in the Philippines and I thought of reviewing some items that are quite perfect for the rainy season: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hours Eyeshadow. Well, they are actually more suitable for summer since they’re cream shadows and they have such vibrant colors. However, I think that they are perfect for the rainy season as well because these lovelies can withstand the constant battle between the sun and rain. I purchased these Maybelline cream shadow gems US last year. I saw them in one of the many drug store there and I grabbed four shades: Tenacious Teal, Pomegranate Pink, Painted Purple, and Too Cool.

Product

These are cream  eyeshadows that have intense color payoff and are supposed to last 24 hours. Each eyeshadow is housed in a sturdy glass jar with a black screw on lid. The packaging is really nice and does not feel cheap at all. They remind me of MAC paint pots, actually.

What I Love:

  • The formulation is excellent. They are super creamy and easy to spread out. They dry quickly though. Make sure to apply on one eye at a time.
  • The shades I purchased had wonderful color payoff. I picked out two loud shades and two more wearable shades.
  • They can be used as an eyeshadow base, eyeshadow alone, and eyeliner. I love that cream eyeshadows have so many functions. <3
  • I tried these on one at a time and did not experience any creasing or fading for around 15 hours. I don’t like wearing makeup overnight so I wasn’t able to test it out for the full 24 hours.

What I dont like:

  • Since the packaging is really nice, these eyeshadows may not be travel friendly because they pack on a LOT of weight to  your travel make-up kit. (It’s not really a bad thing for me though. Just pointing it out. ;)

Tips and Final Thoughts

  • When you’re in a hurry, you can use your fingers to apply this on your lids.
  • Use the bright colors as eyeliners for a pop of color on your peepers.
  • Use the white shade to make your eyeshadow appear more vibrant.
  • Use the pomegranate pink (which actually looks like a bronzey shade to me) as an eyeshadow base to your neutral eye makeup look.
I really like these Maybelline cream eyeshadows because they are a cheap yet high quality alternatives to the very famous MAC paint pots. I recommend you guys to grab a shade or two if you can! :)
