Review: Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr.





Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24Hr - £4.99* (Official launch is April, but I've seen them in Superdrug)

Recently I've really started getting in to wearing eyeshadows, whereas I used to wear it on the odd occasion, I'm now finding myself wearing it every day and really experimenting with different shades.

There has been a bit of hype surrounding the Colour Tattoo 24hr Eye Colours recently, especially in the blogging world. To be honest, I wasn't at all bothered about them (I seem to miss every bandwagon) until I was at the Maybelline press day recently and swatched them. I picked up four of the shades as I knew I would really love them (and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about).

These are really pigmented gel/cream eye shadows. I think they're similar to MAC Paint Pots but I prefer the Maybelline shades. I picked up On and On Bronze (a rich copper chocolate brown with a gorgeous sheen - my favourite), Eternal Gold (a beautiful gold cream which I use in the inner corners of my eyes), Permanent Taupe (an almost matte brown which I might double up as a eyebrow gel as it's the perfect shade for me) and Endless Purple (a gorgeous rich purple with a metallic sheen, I often use this on my lower lash line).

Overall, I'm absolutely loving these little pots! I wasn't too swayed by the colours in the pots until I swatched them, they really do look so lovely on. They're really easy to apply, I usually use my fingers for colour on the lids and then my Real Techniques Starter Kit brushes for the lower lash line and in the inner corner of my eye. They're great to blend and last so long without creasing or smudging.
They're also great as a base for eyeshadows, I've been wearing MACs Casino over On and On Bronze and it looks gorgeous.

I think the lasting power is amazing, especially as they're drug store products and not high end. I don't find these crease at all, and I haven't been wearing primer. I put them on at about 7am in the morning, wear them all day and come home and my lids still look perfect, it's really unbelievable.
I think they're absolutely worth getting, the price is spot on and I reckon they'll last a while too.
I really love all the shades so far, On and On Bronze is definitely my favourite but I can see myself regularly wearing all colours of the 4.

Will you be picking these up?

  1. I've been lusting after these for quite some time especially considering such rave reviews from my friends in America and a far cheaper price than MAC!
    And may I just add, I love your eyebrows! x

  2. Love the look of these, can't wait to try some (my local Boots/Superdrug are all sold out at the moment). On and On Bronze & Permanent Taupe are definitely the two I want to try the most though. They look lovely on you x
