Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows + Swatches

Hey Guys!
As I mentioned in my YouTube Haul, I picked up several of the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows. At first I only picked up three: Tough as Taupe, Bad to the Bronze, and Audacious Asphalt. Once I used the three I initially had my eye on, I HAD to go back and pick up more: Pomegranate Punk, Too Cool and Bold Gold. I'm sure you are getting sick of seeing videos and posts about these, but I promised to include some swatches on my blog as my video editing skills are still in the works.

10 VIBRANT SHADES: #05 Too Cool, #10 Fierce and Tangy, #15 Audacious Asphalt, #20 Painted Purple, #25 Bad to the Bronze, #30 Pomegranate Punk, #35 Tough as Taupe, #40 Tenacious Teal, #45 Bold Gold, #50 Edgy Emerald.
PRODUCT DETAILS: "Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting colour saturation. Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps colour vibrant. Ophthalmologist tested. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Tough as Taupe, Audacious Asphalt, Bad to the Bronze

You can use these on their own or as a base for your shadow. I've used these both ways and they don't crease on their own or with shadow over top. These cream eyeshadows have been compared to MAC paint pots. I must say, I can see why since these are VERY similar. In fact, you can actually screw on the lids of either product on the other!

I use MAC paint pots as bases for my eyeshadows, especially Painterly, as my daily base. Now if only Maybelline releases some flesh tone, matte shades, I would definitely replace Painterly with one of these! I love these sooo much! These are probably one of the best quality drugstore products I've seen in a long time. If you haven't got your hands on one of these yet, I highly recommend you do! You can't go wrong with any of the shades. My favourite is Bold Gold with Bad to the Bronze coming into a close second place.


  1. Is there a color like Painterly?
