Worth the Hype Wednesday – Maybelline Color Tattoo

This week I thought I’d talk about a staple beauty item of mine that is a permanent fixture in my ‘everyday makeup drawer: Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow.


The Color Tattoos have been out a while and if you follow lots of beauty ‘gurus’ on YouTube, like me, you will know everyone has been raving about them and I have to say, I can see why. There is a huge variety of colors available, ranging from bright vibrant ones like Tenacious Teal down to more subtle colors like Tough as Taupe. I personally like the more subtle colors, my favorite being Bad to the Bronze (or if you’re in England On and On Bronze) and I find myself reaching for it everyday, day or night, its just amazing.


It is a creamy eye shadow with a bronze frosting to it, which claims not to smudge or crease AND last 24hrs. Let me just tell you now girls, it does what it says on the tin, well I don’t know about the 24 hours bit as I never have it on that long, but it definitely has staying power for my needs. Application of this product is great, I find just using my ring finger to apply is best and it glides across my lid beautifully. Also when applied looks as if you’ve done some blending, minimal effort for a complex look = happy Emma. It is very build-able, for a day time look just a little gives your lids a gorgeous summer glow and a little dimension, if you want to vamp it up more for the evening just add more on top.


Even when I am not necessarily going for this color, it works amazing as an eyelid primer, I put a little of this on first and then powder eyeshadow on top and it holds all day/night. Seriously I just LOVE this product and if I haven’t sold you on it already, they only cost about $5.00 – very affordable and one of the best eyeshadows I’ve tried in a long time. I can’t wait to add more colors to my collection!

Have you tried the Maybelline Color Tattoo? Do you think they’re worth the hype?

xo Emma.
