I don't really do eyeshadow, I just don't get it. I see all these pretty smokey eyes floating around and after countless trials and an equal amount of errors, I have come to the conclusion that eyeshadows are just not my forte, however after seeing this post by the lovely Chelsea I felt inspired once again and decided to get myself a couple of the Maybelline Color Tattoos. I am a neutrals girl through and through so I opted for a couple of shades that fit with that critera, On and On Bronze which is a gorgeous shimmery brown with the slightest hint of copper (so pretty much bronze), and Eternal Pink which is a very soft, pale pink shimmer.
I really like these. They can be lightly applied for a subtle wash of colour or built up for a more of a night-time eye. I'd say my favourite out of the two is the bronze one, just because it sits nicer with my eye colour.
I can see why the Color Tattoos have been so named because they really do stay put and after the initial short blending period, they do not budge. At all. Until removed properly.
They feel nice and creamy to apply and are incredibly pigmented, and definitely feel a lot more expensive than they are.
Although I'm using them on their own currently, I have seen many people use these as a base for their eyeshadows which I may well experiment with in due course.
I will definitely be buying more of these, I'm eyeing up Permanent Taupe at the moment and I think it's Eternal Silver which is a silver-white shade, which would be perfect for a brow bone and inner corner highlight.
Have you tried the Color Tattoos from Maybelline?
