Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow - Bad to the Bronze

So I have been waiting for the release of Maybelline Color Tattoo in Australia and it finally came last week. However, since I was sick for most of last week I didn't get to go to buy it until the weekend and everything was gone except for Fierce and Tangy (orange) and Bad to the Bronze. I decided to buy Bad to the Bronze because it's a neutral and versatile colour.

I bought the eyeshadow from Priceline and they had this on special for $10.75 which is pretty good for a cream eyeshadow. First look at the product, the container is a glass packaging and it feels quite solid. I think it's very similar to MAC Paint Pot but the price is much cheaper and affordable. I like how the packaging is made of glass because it feels more solid and not cheap.

Now the application of the eyeshadow itself. The eyeshadow can be easily applied using your finger but you can also apply it with a brush. I used my MAC 217 fluffy brush to apply it all over the eyelid and also on the crease. It applies very smoothly so I was very happy with the consistency and creaminess of the eyeshadow. It's also blendable if you work with it quickly. Bad to the Bronze is a nice neutral colour so I can use this by itself or as a base or even on the crease with a lighter shadow all over the lid. Since I've bought it I have used it everyday and I love it.

These cream shadows are supposed to last 24 hours but I can't comment on this because I do not wear make up for 24 hours let alone more than 12 hours. However I have found from applying it in the morning it has last me at least 8-10 hours with no creasing or fading so it's definitely long lasting. However, I have been using Urban Decay Primer Potion on my lids before applying the eyeshadow. I will try it next time without the primer to see whether it still lasts 8 hours on my lids.

Overall this product is amazing and I'm very impressed! I would give it 10 out of 10 because it's long lasting, applies smoothly and is very cheap, especially compared to MAC Paint Pot.

I would definitely consider trying out the other colours, in fact Priceline is having a better special on these shadows this week only $7.95. I will buy more colours and will post photos and swatches on the new colours I will buy. 

So what are your thoughts on the Maybelline Tattoo Colour eyeshadows? 


  1. I like that you compared it to MAC paint pot. It seems like a great alternative to the paint pot!

  2. Beautiful colour, I have a weakness for gold eyeshadows!
