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.
