Maybelline Color Tattoo in Australia, Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel Eyeshadow

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)

Audacious Asphalt, Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow

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.  😛

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?

    Yay!!! It seems like we’ve been waiting FOREVER for these to hit Australia. I hope I can find Bad To The Bronze and Bold Gold here in Brisbane.

    I have these in Too Cool, Edgy Emerald, painted Purple, Bold Gold, Bad to the Bronze and Tenacious Teal! I use Too Cool every day on the inner corners of my eyelids, it is a little sheer but whatever shadow I apply over it really grabs and pops! All of these are just great and I love the look you did with the Asphalt 🙂

      @catn2kittens, Aw, thanks very much. And I am very tempted to get Tenacious Teal – it’s so bright and vivid – love the colour.

    Nice pics!

    I love these eye shadow tattoos! They last on me pretty good, and I have oily lids too! Seems so strange that just Australia started to carry them now o_0 I always thought Finland is the last country to caught up on new trends! But Im happy that we came in second this time lol 😀

    So far I’ve picked up Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe (reviews and swatches on my blog). Love them! I definitely need to pick up a few more.

      @Kate, I was contemplating Bad to the Bronze the other day…had it in my shopping basket but at the end, before checkout, I put it back. I’m trying to go on a spending ban but I failed today because I went shopping 😛
