REVIEW: Maybelline Color Tattoo Metals

P1090659 P1090661 P1090662

Possibly one of the most amazing drugstore cream eyeshadows you will get your paws on. These are the second release of the Maybelline Color Tattoos in the new ‘metal’ finishes. After swatching them at the store, I walked away with three of the four pots.

Inked in Pink

The first cream shadow is a lovely rose pink colour and is super creamy to work with. It has a slight shimmer to it and works really well with Pomegranate Punk, a colour tattoo from the original set. This is definitely a new favourite! It’s lasts fairly well on my eyes (I tend to have an oily eye area) but doesn’t last as long as other colour tattoos I have in my opinion. This could be due to the creamier texture.

Barely Branded

This second shadow has been compared to a MAC Paint Pot in Painterly. While I don’t own that particularly paint pot, I have swatched it before (my sister’s) and they do definitely look similar in colour. This cream shadow is again creamier and more ‘wet’ than the previous colour tattoos, but is a great buy. It’s definitely a cheaper alternative to a MAC Paint Pot, and this lasts longer on my eyelids than inked in pink. It looks lovely on it’s own, or even works well as an eye primer to really make your eyeshadow pop.

Midnight Blue

The third and final cream shadow I got was the first one I purchased, midnight blue. This product swatches nicely, but I find I need to build it up a bit on the eyes to look opaque. It’s got lovely purple shimmer accents and is great for an alternative to the basic black/grey smokey eye look. I’ve worn this on a night out (I didn’t take a photo :O) and it lasted the whole night. It should be noted that I did use an eyeshadow primer to ensure that it wouldn’t budge though!

What do you think of the new Maybelline Color Tattoos in Metals? Which is your favourite Color Tattoo of all time??

      Me too! I didn’t think I would like using pink on my eye area but it is very nice when it is slightly metallic :) Xx
