Beauty Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadow

If you are sick of eye shadow that fades away after a few hours, Maybelline’s new Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadow promises a breakthrough in makeup. This new shadow is said to stick with bold instense shade for up to 24 hrs.

THE HYPE: Makeup that doesn’t fade for 24 hours. Wouldn’t it be great to not have to reapply… ever!

THE TEST: We switched our old eye shadow for this Maybelline product to see if it sticks.

THE VERDICT: We are stuck on Maybelline’s Color Tattoo Shadow! This is one eye shadow that can stand up to almost any test you throw at it. When you get the little shadow pan, you will notice that this cream gel is a strange consistency. If it has any flaw this is it. It’s too hard to use your regular brushes to apply. We found using our finger to apply the Color Tattoo worked out best for us. Unfortunately that means we have less control on where to put it. Apply carefully, because it sticks so well that you have very little room to play with it. Smudging is a lot more difficult than with your regular eye shadow. Once you apply though, you are ready to go all day and night! These shadows aren’t going anywhere. We tried out some of the more neutral shades, and their vibrancy didn’t quit. We can’t wait to try out the bold shades of teal and orange that they also carry.
