Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadows Review

Maybelline says:
Why You'll Love It

• Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant
• Ophthalmologist-tested. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

For Best Results
High impact look:
Illuminate. With fingertips, sweep all over eye from inner corner and work outwards. For added drama, darken as desired.

My Thoughts:
First of all, if you haven't seen my swatches yet, I'm going to need you to go take a look because...WOW.

Basically, these cream shadows are crazy amazing. Just...I don't even know. They'd be amazing for a mid or high end product but considering that they're drugstore and priced at about $6 each...it's even better and just mind boggling (plus you can get them on BOGO!). They're pigmented, smooth and easy to apply, and blend beautifully. I've used them as eyeshadow with nothing on top, and also as a base with an eyeshadow over the top and they work great both ways. I've applied them with my finger and a brush; both worked just as good as each other. As for the 24 hour claim on the lasting power, I don't doubt it. I wore Bold Gold as an eyeshadow on my lid and it lasted ALL day from 5am til about 8pm. No creasing or fading at all. Granted that wasn't 24 hours but it was pretty close. Pictures are below showing my makeup through the day!

See what I mean? Bold Gold did not budge at all!

My only wish is that there were more matte skintone shades. Maybe someday!
