Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo

The much-awaited Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo is here, and I am afraid to say it is a slight disappointment to me. Although the colour does stay all day like it claims, it creases like crazy on my eyelids.

I picked up shade 35 On-and-On Bronze, which is really gorgeous. I liked the taupe colour, but felt that it was too harsh for an everyday look, whilst the gold looked a little too yellow for me. This seemed to be the perfect middle ground that compliments my brown hair and glasses.

I like wearing this up to the crease. The pigmentation is great and it brings out the blue in my eyes which I really like. However, as I have mentioned before, it starts to crease very quickly. It has from the first time that I used it. I thought that maybe I had put to much product on, but after trying again and using the product very sparingly, it still ended up creating the same effect. I haven't tried using this gel-cream eyeshadow with a primer, simply because I don't often use eye shadows due to them creasing, so consequently I don't own a primer. Therefore I couldn't say if this would help hold the shadow in place for longer.

Overall I do like the product. The colour doesn't fade and it has a great pigmentation. Plus it's an easy product to wear as you can just wash the colour over your eyelid. The creasing does annoy me, but when I spot it I tend to try and pat it out across the lid again, which helps it last for a little while longer.

Have you tried these? What did you think? Let me know :)


  1. My opinion is exactly the same as yours. I like it but don't love it, and the glittery shades really aren't me but the matte one is way too dark for me, so I'm stuck really. Pick up the MUA Professional Eye Primer for £2.50, it really helps! xxx

    1. Sounds like a plan and a complete bargin! I shall :) xxo
