Ah, the much loved Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoos! I resisted buying these for a very long time, the colours tempted me a lot but I was worried that I would get the dreaded crease in the eyelid after wearing this for a short while. I struggle to keep the crease line away even if I use a good eye primer, and cream eye shadows are notorious for making it worse than regular powder eye shadows do.
Inevitably, I ended up buying a couple of these beauts, the one seen here is Pomegranite and the other that I haven’t got round to trying properly yet is Permanent Taupe. This one is a gorgeous deep berry shade that is perfect for the autumn/winter season. It is quite a festive colour that won’t look too out place at upcoming Christmas parties, and the best bit is that it is perfect for bringing out the colour of your eyes. I can’t comment on green or brown eyes unfortunately, but I have blue eyes and I usually find myself sticking to neutral/bronze/copper shades that bring out the tone of them. However I noticed straight away that this berry shade really made my eyes pop, and not even in a scary, psycho way that I have sadly experienced before! I did try and take a few photos to back me up on this, but I am currently in the grip of my first cold of the autumn season, so needless to say, I do not look entirely healthy right now (HELLO darker circles than normal and a traffic-light-red nose). I will do a Face of the Day post later in the week hopefully when I look a bit more human and will feature the eye shadow in it.
Another good thing I have found with this product is that if I apply it gently with my fingers, I can control whether I want a subtle layer of colour or if I want a bold, deep look instead.
Have you tried any of the Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoos? What do you think of this shade? xx
