Maybelline Color Tattoo by EyeStudio 24hr Cream Gel Eye Shadow Review

I recently picked up the Maybelline Color Tattoo by EyeStudio 24hr Cream Gel Eye Shadow in Painted Purple because it was on sale and I like to keep these pots in my make-up bag. I love the Inked In Pink shade that I bought last Summer so I thought I’d try the purple shade.

What’s to love?

The Maybelline Color Tattoo is a nice cream eyeshadow that looks really bright in the pot however it is a bit more transparent on my skin but I do really like it. The non-greasy formula is easy to apply on the go and the shade is one of my favorites.

The key to a good application is to sweep your eyelid and then blend out. I like to apply a primer first to get a better application. The color does stay put with no creasing although I have never tried wearing it for 24 hours.

I have also heard that these pots can dry out but the pink one I bought last year is still fine so I’m hoping I have the same luck with the purple shade.

Maybelline EyeStudio Color Molten Palette in Taupe Craze Review

The Maybelline EyeStudio Color Molten Palette in Taupe Craze is an interesting product in that it’s a “dimensional cream shadow”, how cool is that? I love this soft colors in this eye duo.


What’s to love?

I’m really impressed with this Maybelline eyeshadow palette duo. On one side you get a creamy matte taupe  while the other side is a shimmery dark brown shade and while they are not super pigmented the colors blend into a beautiful look. I love these neutral colors for daytime or a casual work look.

I also love that this product has zero scent. No chemical smell at all and it’s Made in Canada. At $3.99 I’d like to pick up a few for my make-up bag as they are nice and small so they don’t take up much room.

On a side-note I did get my palette for 40%off at our local K-Mart  which is closing and I noticed that the this is a hard to find product. Ulta only has one color available online and it’s not on the Maybelline site at all so this could be a discontinued product.
