I finally got hold of the Maybelline Color Tattoos a while ago, and have been trying them out. And I must say that I love them. I’ve got them in 3 shades:
Just in general, I like cream eye shadows, or eye shadow bases as they are also called. I find them very easy to apply and blend (by just using my fingers). If I’m in a rush, one layer of cream shadow is all I need.
The colours I picked are very bright, and they go on the lids as the exact same colour and don’t fade out. The staying power is incredible too. I’ve been wearing them for nights out, and a 7km run the other day – it just didn’t move and stayed put. They are very affordable, so you’ll get something for your money. And now they also have them in the shops in Hong Kong too! Yayy!!
Different names/colours in different countries?
I bought these in Manchester, and when I did a little research on the internet, I got confused. It turns out that these little pots have different names depending on which country they are sold. So the Turquoise Forever, is called Tenacious Teal in the US. And if you look at the two sites, the colour ranges are different:

I am definitely getting more of these – I want all of them. But okay, a few at a time. On the wish list, I’ve got:
– Bad to the Bronze 25
– Painted Purple 20
– Tough as Taupe 35
– Edgy Emerald 50
Have you tried these pots? What are your experiences? Have you tried some of their limited editions that are not available on the website anymore?
