Maybelline Color Tattoo, Worth The Hype? Review & Swatches

50% off Maybelline!? How could I not buy something! I had been waiting to buy a few of the Color Tattoo eyeshadows but they are kinda expensive, not on sale these are about $12! When I went to Priceline they had the worst selection, it was the first day of the sale so I thought the Maybelline stand would be full of stock and the staff said they hadn’t been busy at all! Ultimate fail, Priceline. I went in with the intention of getting four Color Tattoo eyeshadows but the selection was so bad, they had the two colours I picked up and a dark blue. Not interested.


The colours I bought are Audacious Asphalt and Bad To The Bronze. Typical though, silvery and goldy shades! Oh well! Audacious Asphalt is a medium grey colour, super shimmery with silver glitter. It isn’t quite opaque but is definitely not sheer. Bad To The Bronze is a really pretty brown/bronze/taupe colour, it is 100% shimmer! This colour is so pretty, my preference of the two!


I originally bought these as eyeshadow bases but they are definitely too pretty to cover up. They blend so smoothly and seamlessly. I am really surprised by these eyeshadows and they are a lot more than I expected. The Color Tattoos feel kind of like gel at first and don’t have any chunky bits or harsh scratchy glitter. Once the eyeshadow sets it isn’t going anywhere. When layered a couple of times it’s pretty much bulletproof… To get the swatches off my hand I needed dish detergent haha!


I think these eyeshadows are definitely worth the hype! I would repurchase and pay full price! If you’re near a Priceline don’t hesitate to buy one or two… Or all of them! When available, they have a great colour selection, I just wish Priceline would stock up when they KNOW obviously there’s a new catalogue. I am so inlove with Bad To The Bronze, it compliments my eye colour so well! Check them out for yourself!
