Maybelline is a brand that is slowly winning over my heart; new formulations and long wearing products that deliver. Although we can’t say that for every one of their products, I can say such claims in respect to one of their newest products, the Colour Tattoo. I heard so much hype over these shadows over Youtube so while passing by the cosmetics at Walmart I couldn’t help but pick one up. I’ve written a Maybelline Colour Tattoo Review to let you know what I think of these creamy eye shadow pots. Enjoy!
Pigmentation, Finish & Blendability:
Upon swatch, these shadows are extremely pigmented! You can get a lot of colour from just dabbing your finger in the pot. Some of the shades are sparkly and some are matte; I picked up Tough as Taupe which is completely matte and quite lovely. Another stand-out to me was the gold shade which has a fair amount of sparkle in it, and it’s completely up to you whether or not you think the types of finishes will work for you. I personally have a certain affinity for sparkle… It’s really fun to let your inner girly girl run WILD AND FREE! But, for a more wearable shade, I decided to get the taupe. To be honest, it looks completely hideous when you swatch it on your hand, but when applied it on the lid it creates an effortless smoky look which I adore. As for blending capabilities, I have no trouble using this product alone and getting a nice blend-out, or pairing it up with shadows.

Lasting Power, Packaging & Cost:
There is rarely an eye primer that works for me. I always get creasing, smudging, fading and I don’t understand, my skin is not oily! I had little expectations that the Colour Tattoo would be a sufficient primer, but it actually works better than any other product I’ve tried! Be it a Paint Pot, Primer Potion, high-end, low-end, anything! I wear this shadow with nothing underneath and it stays put, I’m really pleased. I love the packaging as well, it’s just like a MAC Paint Pot and who doesn’t love that cute little jar!? The cherry on top is the price, at about $7 CAN I am more than happy to spend my hard earned cash on this.
One little con – although it is the best primer I’ve ever used, I still experience a slight amount of creasing. Keep in mind, with any other primer I get A LOT of creasing, so I’m still very satisfied with the wear of this product. Overall I’m very impressed and delighted that Maybelline decided to create these beautiful shadows. Definitely check them out for yourself and thank you for checking out my Maybelline Colour Tattoo review! Take care!
