First Impressions: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow

Wednesday, 21 March 2012
Hiya,

I had been waiting for the Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow's since they came out in the USA. Obviously, they were going to take some time before they were released here in the UK but finally I did manage to get a hold of a few of them.

Superdrug has a great offer on at the moment where three of the Maybelline products are available for the price of two. From what I can tell, not all the colours that were released in the USA are in the store's here. But the ones that I wanted were which is good enough!



The names of the eye shadows have also been changed in the UK so they are different to the ones in the USA.

My first impressions of them are that they look very similar to the paint pots by MAC. Their size and general look is pretty much the same except for the lids which are slightly different.

They are priced at £4.99 each and with the offer on at the moment, you can get a hold of three of them for £9.98. As the MAC paint pots are priced at £14.50 each, you could normally get 3 of the Maybelline ones at pretty much the same price!

I did swatch the other three colours that were available. There is a turquoise, purple and a shimmery gold. Having the choice, I would probably give the purple a miss as it did not seem that special. Upon swatching it didn't have any vibrancy to it and just looked bland. The three shades that I did get, I know I will get full use out of them as they are very wearable shades. I especially am loving the taupe shade as it isn't shimmery so will be a lot more wearable than others.

I really do hope they bring out the white one as well because I don't think that one is available here yet.

So far I am really happy about these, especially if they are as good or better than the MAC Paint Pots, what do you think about them? Have you tried them yet?
