My Current Obsession: Maybelline's Color Tattoos [Swatches & Review]


Today we're going to talk about these little things called the Maybelline Color Tattoo's. They're a cream based eyeshadow that are supposed to last for 24 hours. I freaking love these things and I'm dying to get my hands on the one called 'pomegranate punk'. It looks like the perfect freaking shade for the fall/winter and I cannot find it anywhere! It seems to be sold out every time I remember to look for it.




Now I own quite a few of them myself, and I hate to say it but I don't think that they last 24 hours. Do they last close to it? I don't know, because I'm not willing to keep them on my eyes for 24 hours, or anything near it. I've kept them on my eyes for 8 hours at a time, and they didn't crease. So I'd have to say they could probably last for a bit longer. 




As you can see by the picture below, I have used them before I took pictures of them (oh no!), but I've been planning on doing this post for quite some time now, and I've had the light pink color for the longest. I'll wear them as a base on some days, or just by themselves on other days, just depending on what I've got in mind for that day.




They have a really great consistency, and they wear really well. I've heard that they're really similar to Mac Paint Pots, but I don't own any of them so I couldn't tell you how they compare really. My favorite way to use them are as a primer. I put them as a base and then I like to apply my eyeshadows right on top. They hold the color really well (of the creme eye shadow and a primer). 


My favorite of all of them is the pink shade, it's definitely my most used color. After that, I love love the bronze and gold colors. The only matte color that I really have [I think they've released three] is the taupe color. 

Do you like the Maybelline Color Tattoo's? What do you think about them?

*Disclaimer: I did buy all of these myself, not for the purpose of review but just because I'm becoming more and more obsessed with makeup.
