Since I’ve started teaching, I have found what makeup products work best for my long days at school. Also, I like to be able to do my makeup quickly and easily when I’m up so early. Six o’clock comes super early and I’m often putting makeup on with my eyes still half closed. I don’t like to wear super heavy makeup during the day, but I definitely need some to help me look a little less like a…

Maybelline Color Tattoo Review

This is an “oldie but a goodie” at this point but I figured it would still be great to review because it’s so hyped up in the beauty community. Maybelline’s Color Tattoo’s claim to be a long-wearing 24 hour cream color. 

I had always heard about the mac paint pots and couldn’t justify the hefty price tag so I tried these instead.  My favorite is in “Bad to the Bronze” and is a perfect every day color as you can see from the swatch below. 

Now let’s talk about the great things about these babies.  They are easy to find at the drugstore and come in a variety of colors ranging from neutral to bold and bright.  I’ve stuck with the bronze one to start with because when I’m looking for an easy to wear, long-wearing cream eyeshadow, I generally want it to use for everyday wear to work and daily life.  The bright blue “mimi” look just isn’t for me.  These are true to their claim and are VERY long wearing.  Now given the grease pit that is my face, I do still prefer to pair this with an eyeshadow primer but when I do, these DO NOT BUDGE.  I mean, I can accidentally fall asleep in this and it stays on like nothing had happened.

Now, I’ve had this one for about a year now and it’s starting to dry out.  While this is not surprising from a cream product, I find it hard to believe that anyone could use up an entire one of these before it actually dries out. Not a deal breaker though since I can’t imagine any other cream shadows stay fresh forever.  Also, I do wish there were some less shimmery shades tailored towards women of color. But to be fair, there are some more recent collections of mattes and nudes that I haven’t personally checked out yet. From what I have seen, they are tailored to our more fair skinned friends.  

Overall, I do love this and will plan to seek out some more every day wear colors (if I can find them) or stay tuned to future limited edition versions so I can stock up.

Thumbs ups!

High impact look:

I really wanted to try some wet- type shadows but I couldn’t seem to find one. I heard that we have a local brand that sell those but I couldn’t find it, so when I saw these at the mall while stalling with my friends I grab it and then think twice because of the price, that time I don’t have a budget because I didn’t really intend to buy stuff that day so I put it back about two times and then my friend says I should just get it, so I did and I think I did well.

I say:

  • I got mine in Bad to the Bronze. All of the available colors(where I got them) this is the only one I can pull- off. 
  •  It has a metallic finish in to it. 
  • For me it has a butter-y consistency, easy to apply- just a finger.
  • Waterproof! When I bought it I swatch it that night then I woke up on the next morning and then take a bath but it didn’t move at all. My friends and my cousin really like it.  
  • Unhygienic because it is in a pot form, but you can use brush to get the product.
  • Long lasting. 
  • As the day goes by the metallic sheen to it will fade but the rest of the solid color will be left out but indeed a good product.
  • Easily remove with makeup remover wipes.
  • Can’t really travel with because of the glass- type container or pot.
  • Great pigmentation.
  • It didn’t crease on me throughout the day.

Maybelline 24Hr Colour Tatoo's!

These are literally sent from the gods! They are amazing! I have the shades ‘Cool Crush’, 'Lavish Lavender’ and the ever so popular 'Bad to the Bronze’. My personal favourite is 'Lavish Lavender’ as it is a beautiful purple shade. I feel this colour really suits my eyes. I have bright blue eyes(even though purple is supposed to bring out brown eyes). 'Cool Crush’ looks like  blue at first glance, however as you take a closer look it has a mixture of different colours. It is very pretty, if your are feeling brave pick up this colour. 'Bad to the Bronze’, well do I even have to say anything else? I am sure you have seen beauty guru’s on youtube using it and you have thought that it was beautiful! These are amazing when you are in a rush. I  just use my finger to swipe it on. It is incredible! They have a creamy consistency and are highly pigmented. You can use them on their own or can add other shadows to create a smoky look. This means that these are very versatile and can be used casually or with a dressier look! You need to go pick up some of these now! They are a must from Rosy Reviews! 

Product Review:Bad to the Bronze Color Tattoo by Eye Studio- Shimmery bronze color that looks great at night and pretty good in the day (as long as you don’t use dark eye liner).  Similar to gel eye shadows from Sephora that can be put on easily on the go with your finger.  This brand is sold inexpensively at CVS.  Would buy again.
