Review: Maybelline Color Tattoos
This is probably the most hyped product out of the drugstores right now: I heard the comparisons to MAC Paint Pots and that they outperformed them. I've bought three shades: Tough As Taupe, Bold Gold, and Painted Purple.
My thought on this product after using it for a week: It's probably the best cream shadow out of the drugstores so far, but it isn't nearly as long-wearing as the name suggests. The shades are also hit or miss: Tough As Taupe goes on very pigmented, but Painted Purple isn't nearly as vibrant swatched as it appears in the pot.
The shades also take some blending: They tend to apply streaky and uneven and take more than one application to get good color payoff. I also wish more of the shades were matte; the glittery effect makes them hard to use as a base.
This is a decent product, but it's overpriced at around $8 per pot. If your eyelids are oily, this product will likely crease after a few hours. If you're older and have some wrinkling on your eyelids, the product will settle into any wrinkles and accentuate them.
