Maybelline Colour Tattoo's

I'm a little late to jump on the Colour Tattoo cream shadows by Maybelline but only recently I have been getting into using shadows, powder and creams. I have only picked up 4 of the 24hour colours so far to try out so these are the ones.

Emerald Gold

Turquoise Forever

Pink Gold

Permanent Taupe

I really like the creamy texture of these products and they make for very good bases, similar to things like Mac Paint pots and Stila Smudge Pots, but they can also be used alone as shadows or eyeliners. 

Emerald Gold looks gorgeous with blue eyes and I like to apply very lightly across the lid and it looks really pretty as an inner corner highlight.  The colours are very pigmented so a little bit goes a long way and with eye shadow on top they each look beautiful.
Pink Gold looks super pretty underneath Mac's Naked Lunch eye shadow, and Emerald Gold I think looks nice as a base for Mac's Era shadow. I bought Turquoise Forever just for its stunning peacock, tropical blue but I have never worn it and I don't know how I would wear this (any tips leave a comment) and permanent Taupe I thought would look really nice with my eyes, however, I just am not used to wearing dark colours and also as we are coming into ''summer'' I wouldn't wear such hard colours on the eyes. 
I really like the glass packaging and circle shade, as they are sturdy and sit nicely in a row. Also the lid shuts tightly and all the product is also tightly compact into the glass tub. 

What do you think on the Colour Tattoo's?


  1. I LOVE colour tattoos :) they're so easy to wear! The turquoise one looks so beautiful yet so bright! Love the look of the pink one too! I've got a post coming up on these too! X
