Maybelline Colour Tattoos







*holds collection of Maybelline colour tattoos to the sky and starts singing lion king*
Cream eye shadows can be one of the most challenging things for drugstore brands to get right, some are too creamy and crease like a bitch and others are cream-to-powder finish and disappear quicker than you can say cream eye shadow, but one brand ladies (and gentlemen) has hit the nail on the head. Of course as you can tell from the title of this post, I'm talking about the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, those little glass pots of creamy, long lasting eye shadow goodness.

The formula is spot on and is very comparable to Mac Paint pots in the way that when they set, they're not moving, ever. You could run a marathon and it would still remain completely the way you applied it. The best part about these are that not only can they be used as a base for any shadows that are used over the top, but they also come in the most beautiful array of pigmented colours, so they look equally as beautiful worn on their own.

Not only is the product quality high end, but the packaging also makes it feel just as luxurious. They come packaged in little glass pots, so you can see the product through it, yet they only cost £4.99! 

The only down side is that up until now, the UK have been stuck with the same metallic shades for about a year, whereas the US have had Limited edition colours such as nudes and light shimmery shades which I personally think is so unfair.

My Collection



Beige-ing beauty (US only)
A beautiful light shimmery beige. There isn't as much pigment to this as the other colours, but the flecks of gold glitter look so pretty washed across the lid. I picked this up whilst in New York in February, I'm absolutely gutted I didn't get a chance to pick up some other shades from the range.

On and On Bronze
A cool toned metallic bronze. This colour is absolutely beautiful, I tend to wear this on it's own for work as it just adds a hint of something without being too smokey or in your face.




Creamy Beige
A matte light warm brown. Finally a nice matte, every day shade has been launched in the UK. These are the new Leather Effect shades and I believe the other shade is a matte lilac which I definitely need to get my hands on!




Pink Gold
As the name would suggest, it's a metallic pink with gold running through it. This colour is so fresh and pretty, it's the perfect girly pick me up colour.




Metallic Pomegranate
A metallic berry shade. The perfect autumnal shade, works beautifully paired with Mac Cranberry.



Light-in-purple
a light silvery blue, with purple running through it. This is a stunning duo chrome shade, I've not seen anything like this before from any other drugstore ranges, I've found it works best paired with purple toned smokey eyes.


Eternal Silver
Shimmery silver. This works amazing at bringing light to any smokey eye, placed in the inner corner to brighten, or placed in the centre.
