Maybelline Color Tattoo

I’ve done a lot of makeup shopping on a recent trip to London, and this can only mean one thing – LOTS TO BLOG ABOUT!

Today I shall be starting with Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24HR gel-cream eyeshadow.

I’ve been on the hunt for a cream eyeshadow for ages, because sometimes I’m just not in the mood to spend lots of time applying and blending regular eyeshadow, or maybe I’m in a huge rush!  I wanted a colour that could be used both for a daytime and nighttime look, and so I decided to purchase the gorgeous shade ‘On and On Bronze’.

Such a pretty colour, especially in the sunlight!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR costs £4.99 from Boots, and is available in 9 shades.  ‘On and On Bronze’ is a shimmery bronze colour (just in case you hadn’t guessed that yet!), which I think looks really pretty.

I’ve used it about three times so far, but boy did these three times test it’s long-lastingness!  Three days of heat, sweat and lots of tears certainly put this cream eyeshadow to the test.  The eyeshadow’s got a rather thick consistency, and so I decided to go for the quick little-finger-dab-it-in-the-pot-then-dab-it-on-your-eyes approach, which amazingly resulted in a cool shimmery colour on my eyelids, and took *much* less time than any regular eyeshadow would to apply.

The product claims not to fade (hence, 24HR), however I did notice that by the end of the day the eyeshadow did fade slightly.  However, as I said there was lots of heat, sweat and tears involved, so I think this is pretty amazing.  

I would definitely recommend using Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR as it is so versatile, can be worn very quickly if you’re in a rush, and (although I haven’t used it this way yet) I’m pretty sure it would make a good base for other regular eyeshadows.  I cannot wait to purchase more shades, such as the pretty ‘Pink Gold’ colour!
