Maybelline Color Tattoo by EyeStudio Eyeshadow
My makeup melt is well documented. Whenever a new supposedly long wearing eyeshadow comes along, I am right there to try it. More often than not, I'm disappointed.
I'm happy to report that's not the case with Maybelline's new Color Tattoo shadows. They do not go for 24 hours as the name implies, but I can't imagine that ever happening with any shadow. I do, however, get about 6 hours of good wear . For me, that's really good . For those of you who don't melt eyeshadow, you'll most likely get the better part of the day. The Mom, who has oilier lids than I is actually getting even better wear time with these than I am. They were still there at bedtime. Now that's truly something.
The shadows themselves are a thick cream ( cream/ gel per Maybelline) that blends easily. The shades in the pot are brighter/deeper looking than they go on. They still pack color but it will be a bit sheerer than what's in the pot.
I give these a total thumbs up .
