Browse My Stash - Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadows

 Today, I'm sharing with you a review and swatches of the
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadows
Review:
*These are cream eye shadows that can be applied with your finger or a synthetic brush.

*Easy to blend and can be worn alone or under a powder eye shadow.

*SUPER long wearing!  When applied over a primer, they last all day without creasing.  If you don't have oily eyelids, you can skip the primer and they'll still stay put all day.

*Available in 15 shades (5 in the "Metals" collection, 10 in the regular line).  Additional "Limited Edition" colors are released periodically but are usually only found at the drugstore.

*Packaged in a glass jar with a plastic, screw-on lid.   Be sure to screw the lid back on tightly after each use to prevent the product from drying out.  I've had several for over a year and none have dried out.  Yay!

*Price:  $5.94 - $6.99 

*Where To Buy:  Target, Walmart, Ulta, Walgreens or other drugstores

*Favorite, Most-Worn Colors:   Barely Branded, Bad to the Bronze, Inked in Pink (see * color swatches below)

*Summary:  It's probably rather obvious by my large collection that I really love these shadows!  My favorite way to wear them is to apply them to the main part of my eyelid, blending softly into the crease.  Then I press a powder shadow on top of the cream shadow.  By doing this, it makes lighter, more subtle shadows really pop and can also change the color/tone of the powder shadow, allowing you to create all kinds of amazing color combinations!

Before you think I've completely lost my marbles, this is a color that makes super pale peach eyeshadows actually show up on the eyes.  Here's an example of it paired with "Cupcake" from Bare Minerals...
