I know the color tattoo’s have been around for so long that we don’t even notice them anymore at our drugstore; it’s like our eyes skip this part of the Maybelline display … Well I take it upon myself to give back these AMAZING products their badge of honour! First, let me tell you that a lot of high end and drugstore brands have tried to give us good cream eyeshadows, and almost all of them have failed miserably (Boo-Boo-Booo!!!) So girlfriends, it’s time to dust off your old color tattoo’s and rediscover how cool and versatile they are and if you were on an other planet and have not yet try these, please just do, they’re “THAT GOOD”…
What Maybelline says about them on their website:
Dare to wear 24HR shadow.
• Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting color saturation √
• Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant √
• Ophthalmologist-tested. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
So here are the Oh! so fabulous Maybelline “Color Tattoo”:
♥ Multiple shades and style (Original, Leather, Metal) to choose from.
♥ Stays on all day – I mean these things don’t budge!
♥ Very inexpensive (always on sale/clearance somewhere), I paid less than 3$CND for each of the ones I own.
♥ It does a pretty good job as a primer – Barely Brand is a great dupe in my opinion for Mac Paint Pot.
♥ Application is very easy. (Beginners friendly)
♥ No CREASING even on oily lids.
The NOT so Good:
♥ You need to close the lid tight if you don’t want a dry up product. (*** I’ve had one for three years and I thought at some point it was dry up and unusable, but I just scrape the top layer and under, it was perfectly fine !***)
♥ It can accentuate wrinkly lids when worn alone; with eyeshadows on top that is less of a problem. (because yes! I do have wrinkles starting to appear 😢)
What’s not to love: Dreamy shades and let me tell you that once the formula sets, it resists creasing, flaking, and smearing until removed !!! Overall a very fun & affordable little pot with many “makeup” possibilities!
Here are the new limited Spring 2015 shades :
