Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Shadows

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Shadows

As I am sure everyone has heard by now, Maybelline has created a new cream/gel shadow called Eye Studio Color Tattoo. Maybelline has advertised the ten shadows as their longest-lasting shadows that will last for 24 hours. In addition, you may have seen several YouTube product reviews; some were good and some not so much.
Well here is my two cents. I purchased six of the ten gel shadows from Walgreens and CVS, I had to go to several different stores each store may have had one or two colors left in stock. The cost of the product was less than $7.00 which is cheaper than the MAC paint pots.
I found the product easy to apply very smooth, can be applied with your finger or a brush. However, work fast because the product dries quickly.
Here is what I have found on the shadows that I own:

Liked
Didn’t Like (but will work with them)
#30 Pomegranate Punk
·         Reddish burgundy color
·         Shimmery but not to the point where it cannot be worn during the day
·         Can be worn alone or as a base to another color
·         Deeper skin tone friendly

#10 Fierce and Tangy
·         Orange ( not as vibrant as I thought it would have been)
·         Matte color
·         For darker complexions: this color is too light and ashy should be worn as a base to another color
·         For lighter complexions: I believe it would make a nice lid color that will give you a sun-kissed look

#20 Painted Purple
·         Purple with a pink undertone
·         Matte color
·         Can be worn alone or as a base to another color
·         Deeper skin tone friendly

#40 Tenacious Teal
·         Medium blue with a silver shimmery undertone ( thought it would be darker)
·         Personally I would not wear in the daytime
·         Would wear as a base to another color

#25 Bad to the Bronze
·         Muted gold color
·         Light shimmer
·         Can be worn alone or as a base to another color
·         Deeper skin tone friendly

#35 Tough as Taupe
·         Looks more like grey than taupe
·         Matte color
·         Would wear it as a base to another color




Overall: The product did last 8 hours (did not wear for 24 hours). The product did not crease, whether I wore alone or as a base color. Excellent product for the price, as long as you find the color that works for you.
