Maybelline Colour Tattoos // Review + Swatches

 These little pots of joy had the spotlight on blogs in 2012 and everyone and anyone went crazy over them. At first I didn't really grab onto the hype, I liked the idea but I didn't find myself needing to buy some. 

They were released in March/April 2011 in the UK but I didn't purchase my first one until June. I bought Eternal Gold, I loved the product but I couldn't make the colour work for me at all! Roll onto September and I bought another shade, that's where the it all began!





These cream shadows are highly pigmented and form the perfect base for any eye look. They can be easily blended once on the eyelid and I find they apply best when I use my fingers. They do crease a little without a primer but I always use a primer when I do my makeup so I don't find this to be a major problem.

These beauties boast a large wear time of 24 hours, I don't know when or why I would wear my makeup for that long though?! However they do live up to the claims, these last all day on me and I can remember when I swatched them in store it took a day for the colour to come off my hand, even after washing my hands numerous times. These are the most long lasting eye products I own!

They are only £4.99 and recently more shades have been launched in the UK including a black shade (Timeless Black). I will definitely be checking out the other colours once my Spending Ban is over!

What do you think of these?

Thanks for reading,
