Maybelline colour tattoo


Hi Everyone,
I've been away from the blogging world for just over a week now (I know, bad blogger alert). I've had quite a busy week, my nan got rushed to hospital so i've been doing the family thing for a while, the good news is that she's on the road to recovery and therefore i've finally found the time to get some blogging in and I promise I have a pack load of posts planned for the upcoming weeks to make up for my absence.
Firstly i've got another review for you, this one is about the maybelline color tattoo's, I picked up this last week when I found out that Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on all makeup (damn you Boots!) and therefore i had to pick up some things that i've been lusting after for a while. I knew that i'd wanted to try the maybelline color tatto's for a while, with their claims being that they could last 24 hours and the blogging world constantly on about them being a dupe of the famous mac paintpots. For some reason or another I always found an excuse not to buy these little beauties, but boy I wish I'd brought them sooner.


The two color's I decided to pick up was firstly the shade in 'on and on bronze' and secondly the one in 'eternal gold' they are both gorgeous shades. Out of all of the 8 shades I decided on these two simply due to the fact that they are the most wearable of shades and I felt like these two cream eyeshadows were going to be the best at working as eyeshadow bases. 'On and on Bronze' is a gorgeous brown colour but it seems to have a nice sheen about it that you could almost say has silver undertones, which I love because I feel like that is the perfect shade for my eye color. 'Eternal Gold' is a lovely highlight color, I think it is a bit too bright for an every day look, but it is great for highlighting the brow bone or the inner corner of the eye and that's what i've been wearing it for. I would suggest that 'On and on bronze' is the star out of the two shades though.
As for the actual eyeshadow I love the texture of them, being a cream they are so easy to apply and you can just do it with your fingers in the morning without having to rush around with brushes and lots of blending. I also feel that I can wear these two colors together by blending them with my fingers and you don't actually need to add a lot of eyeshadow on top, although I know that these would make ace bases as well. I love the packaging of these products too, they feel quite luxurious, i'm not actually sure if the containers or glass or plastic but either way they have a good weight about them and feel nice and sturdy.
As for the claim's that these last 24 hours I wouldn't know, but only because I don't wear makeup for 24 hours but I've worn them for the whole day and they haven't faded or creased and if you swatch these on your hand they are like impossible to get off, so they definitely have amazing staying power.

Overall, I would really rate these color tattoo's they are an ace product and they really do perform.
Have you tried the color tattoo's?
Thanks for reading
Lots of Love
