Maybelline's 24hr Color Tattoos

Hey Guys,

During my last trip to the drug store I came upon the coveted 24hr Color Tattoos by Maybelline. I've always wanted to try out a couple mac paint pots but I never got around to purchasing any simply because I am not the biggest eyeshadow person. So I figured I may as well try these out considering there is a significant price difference between the two products, and I was pleasantly surprised.

I got the color tattoos in three colors: 30 Pomegranate Punk, 35 Tough as Taupe and 25 Bad to the Bronze. My favorite of the three is probably Bad to the Bronze. Its a really pretty shimmery bronzy-gold color and if you lightly spread it across your eyelid it will give you the perfect shimmery bronze look to your eyes.  I also really like Pomegranate Punk and I think the tones in it are really good color to help bring out your natural eye color esp if you have green eyes.

The pigmentation on these are phenomenal and by 24hrs they really mean 24hrs, on my eyelids they lasted the entire day. So if you have oily lids I definitely recommend you check these out.  If you choose to use these as a base make sure you work quickly as they do set fairly quickly. Also, for a drugstore product the packaging is done really well, they come in glass jars and they don't seem like they would break easily.

One downside I found was and this could just be me not having a proper eye makeup remover. After washing it the bad to the bronze off I noticed I had flecks of gold all across my face but they do eventually come off.

The bottom line is I really recommend checking these out, especially if you see them on sale.

I purchased mine at shoppers drug mart for $4.99 and I have some swatches below so you can see the level of pigmentation and the colors.

Hope Everyone is having a wonderful long weekend if you live in Canada
