Now I know that these have been around for well over a year but I usually avoid creamy eyeshadows like the plague but I’ve read so many good reviews about these lately so I decided to take the plunge. I opted for ‘Permanent Taupe’ as I have a bit of a thing for taupe at the moment, that brown/grey/purple colouring is just perfect for this time of year. The Maybelline Color Tattoo shadows remind me of the lovely MAC Paint Pots – they’re creamy but not too creamy to the point that they will cause ugly creases on your eyelids and you get plenty of product in the little jar. I usually use the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as an eyelid primer before applying any eyeshadow and these Color Tattoo’s act great as a coloured primer and as a solid colour base to apply shadow of the same or similar colour over the top to set. It looks gorgeous on its own as well of course. I find it applies best with an eyeshadow brush than with your fingers as it can get a bit messy and it’s blends easier with a brush. This stuff dries quickly and settles to matte so you need to work fast. The taupe colour looks a lot darker on the eyelid than it does in the pot but it suits my blue eyes perfectly and I love it. I would never have make up on for a full 24 hours to try out the ’24hr’ claim (as that is not good for the skin – yuck) but I wear it daily in a pretty humid work place for at least 8 or 9 hours a day and the staying powder is incredible. I can’t wait to try some of the other colours from this collection – they have a wide variety of gorgeous shades. I have ‘On and On Bronze’ in my sights next.

UPDATE: So I purchased ‘On and On Bronze’, ‘Metallic Pomegranate’ and ‘Eternal Gold’. They’re equally as fabulous as ‘Permanent Taupe’.
