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 :)
