Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadows launched in Australia last week. About time, methinks!!! It reminds me of the time when we waited so long for the Revlon Lip Butters. Anyway, I have seen them in Priceline (introductory price AU$10.15 but it will be AU$11.95 later) and at Chemist Warehouse (currently AU$9.99 as the Maybelline range has 15% off).
There are 10 shades available for Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadows : Too Cool, Fierce and Tangy, Audacious Asphalt, Painted Purple, Bad To The Bronze, Pomegranate Pink, Tough As Taupe (always sold out), Tenacious Teal, Bold Gold and Edgy Emerald (never any testers for that)
I umm-ed and ahh-ed, swatched and re-swatched and then decided on Audacious Asphalt – this is a pewter shimmery shade.
Don’t be fooled by my swatch of Audacious Asphalt. It may look quite tame, but it can be layered to get to your desired intensity of dark grey. I like it because as a dark eyeshadow base, it can transform and create lots of lovely colour combos.
Once upon a time when I was a young thing, I may have worn make-up for 20+ hours, but nowadays, I’m an old married granny so I have no need to wear make-up for more than 10 hours max. But yeah, Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadows are really impressive in that these cream gel eyeshadows really do not budge after they dry. I have to use a little bit of elbow grease to remove them with my make-up remover.
Here are some photos of my eye with Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow in Audacious Asphalt alone, green layered over it and then some on top of that. Don’t laugh at my amateur make-up skills please. :P
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadows do live up to the hype. They are quite lovely, if I say so myself. I like that I can use them as an eyeshadow, a base and for eyelining purposes – and at the end of the night, there’s no creasing. Yay! Also, kudos to Maybelline for keeping the price of these babies reasonable and not making them rocket sky-high.
Have you purchased any of the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadows? Which shade did you get?
