Pros: crease-free, inexpensive, long wearing, no primer required, variety of colors

I purchased this Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe because of the cool, neutral shade. Neutral tones are known to go well with a number of different skin tones, which makes the product highly versatile.

The packaging revealed that the eyeshadow was long wearing, up to a total of 24 hours, which was another positive factor. After a period of several hours, eyeshadow has a tendency to crease and with this eyeshadow I was able to apply it directly to my lids without having to add a primer. This saves a lot of time and money. The Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo has a moist consistency, which makes it easy to apply to my lids, but it also dries very quickly, preventing any type of smudging from occurring. The eyeshadow can be applied with a traditional eyeshadow brush or can be applied using clean fingers. The eyeshadow provides a luminous, bold look alone, so other eyeshadows are not required for complete look. 

The Color Tattoo line offers a wide variety of neutral colors, but also branches out into bold colors like bright violet, green, and gold. This makes the line ideal for a number of different makeup looks.

    I have these in the shades Audacious Asphalt and Barely Branded. Audacious Asphalt is a shimmery gray and Barely Branded is a light pearly champagne color. They are both great as eye shadow bases. I always apply these under my powder eye shadows. I get a lot more use out of Barely Branded. Read more
