As you’ll all probably know, I’m no make-up expert… in fact I’d hardly call myself a ‘fanatic’ even. While I get through day-to-day wearing little to no make-up, I do love trying out the odd product (and if you’ve seen my decluttering posts then you’ll know I have a fair few products!). I picked up the Maybelline Colour tattoos a couple of weeks ago and thought I’d share my opinion.
Now, these have been out for quite some time – they’re not new by any means! I’ve heard practically every beauty blogger and vlogger rave about these (especially in the shade ‘on and on bronze’). I finally picked up a couple when they were discounted in superdrug and bagged myself ‘on and on bronze’ (the copper shade) and ‘metallic pomegranate’ (the purpley-red shade).
These cream shadows create the perfect simple eye look. They’re extremely easy to use – I apply onto my eyelids with my finger and then blend out slightly. The colour is bold and pigmented with and without a primer underneath and can easily be used as either a day or night time look. Here I’ve used ‘metallic pomegranate’ over the lid then used ‘faint’ and ‘crave’ (a dark brown and a black eyeshadow) from the Naked Basics palette in the crease and corner of my eye.I would seriously reccomend these to any eyeshadow novice who feels they might not be able to master the trickier looks involved with a full palette. It’s also perfect for any on-the-go girls as it literally takes seconds to create a great night out look. The gel-creams are pretty affordable at £4.99 each (and if you’re lucky you’ll catch them on sale).
In terms of lasting power I can’t really comment as I never wear make-up for an extended period of time anyways. I do, however, believe they would last the day (and possibly even take you straight through to the night) as I’ve never had any creasing with them and have wore them for 5/6 hours just fine.
Let me know any other colours from the collection that I should pick up!
