We’ve waited and waited and finally we have them here in Manila! With a whopping 8 shades now in stores Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24-Hr cream eyeshadow pots (which can also be used as liners) have arrived just in time for summer…and yes we will be needing serious longevity. Call me predictable but yeah, I prefer these four, I won’t pretend. The one that says “Color Ink” which is “Barely Branded” is the same product but probably due to shade availability they had to import from one of the other Asian countries. I personally actually like how it disrupts the uniformity in the photo.
Inked in Pink (rose pink), Barely Branded (a champagne vanilla), Bad to the Bronze (a warm bronze), and Audacious Asphalt (cool gunmetal grey) Php300++
I’m wearing just 3 out of the 4 shades mentioned above. Barely Branded all over the lid (applied with fingers, concentrated in the center then softly blended around the edges), then Bad to the Bronze as expected generously in the outer V and crease with an eyeshadow detailing brush. Then just a tiny bit of Audacious Asphalt in the outer deepest corner of the eye just to push in some depth, you can skip the third shade and the look will still work. I also added a stroke of Bad to the Bronze on the lower lash line
When you swipe these on you have about a minute to two minutes to get your blending done before they set and become seriously waterproof. I’m actually hoping they bring in the odd 2 or 3 matte shades that the range released abroad (Musings of a Muse mentioned them here last October) those three are limited edition but there’s also a permanent matte taupe shade I think in the US. I actually don’t think they’ll get here, but one can always hope. All shades in the range brought here are shimmer packed but I wouldn’t call them anywhere near “sparkle vomit”, they’re tastefully shimmery.
