Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Bold Gold Review and Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Bold Gold Review and Swatches
Review by Neha
Hello Beauties,
I am finally done with my exams and my graduation done with my studies whooohooo, isn't that amazing, may be you will not feel the same but I am on top of the world am on cloud 9 now getting straight to the business I was on lookout for an eye primer since I have oily eyelids and every eyeshadow creases on me after 2 to 3 hours, there is no way it will stay on my eyelids after 3 hours even in winters I looked up for an eye primer but according to my knowledge there was no eye primer available in my city, so I decided to buy an eyeshadow with much more staying power and Maybelline color tattoo was the only affordable option available for me, since mac paint pot was a much expensive option. 

I went ahead to look for a color tattoo that can serve as a base for my eyeshadows, I went into the store and I asked for Maybelline color tattoo they first swatched on my hand a teal colour, but I told them I want something which will not change the shade of my eyeshadows and will work with every colour I will put over it, I was basically asking for the shade bold gold as the other shade will serve as a one shadow look, they showed me bold gold and swatched it on my arm, the pigmentation was okay and after setting it was up to 80 percent smudge proof and water proof, I was not much convinced that this can serve as a base as I wanted a skin coloured color tattoo but there was not any ,so I was not left with much options, I went ahead and bought this bold Gold shade.

Ingredients : ???

Directions for use: no direction mentioned on the pack

My Experience with Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Bold Gold:
It comes in a heavy glass jar and there was no brush provided for the application it comes sealed in a plastic wrap, it is mentioned on the pack that it is a 24 hour color tattoo.

My experience:
I had high expectation from this product and somehow it let me down, I know people swear by this product but it did not completely served my purpose of buying it, scroll down to see how it is a dull golden shade, I wish it was bright golden:(, it is not as pigmented as the other color tattoo, what I mean by that is you will not get an opaque color just by swirling your finger once, you literally have to swirl it for 5 seconds, you can obviously build the color.


But what disappointed me was the staying power yes it did crease on me, may be because I have extremely oily eyelids, but hey it did claim to stay for 24 hours and the maximum it stayed was 4 hours

Even after removing it with a good cleanser (vlcc sandal cleansing milk for your reference), the shimmers retained let me show a picture coming to the pros and cons

My Likes with Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Bold Gold:
1. According to me, it is affordable
2. It lasts 4 hours on me a bit more then my powder eyeshadows
3. Shimmers look beautiful for party, marriages, ceremonies etc
4. You can work in this shade only at the inner corner and put some other colors at the outer corner or the outer v and create different eyeshadow looks
5. Can work as a single eyeshadow color as well
6. Maybelline products are easily available in India
7. Shimmers are not gritty
8. Smooth texture
9. Does not dry out fast which gives enough time for blending

My Dislikes with Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Bold Gold:
1. Glass packaging
2. No applicator provided, you have to swirl your fingers in it TIP : Immediately wipe off your fingers after swirling it into the products once it sets the shimmers are difficult to remove.
3. Crease on me, almost it stays for 4 hours without creasing
4. The formula is a bit dry, might accentuate wrinkles on ageing eyes
5. Gives a papery look nd feels a bit uncomfortable compared to the silky smooth formula of my powder eyeshadows
6. No ingredients list mentioned

My Rating :3/5

Final Verdict:
It is good for its price if you want to buy the mac paint pot but do not want to invest that much then give it a shot do I recommend it? Yes, because I have exceptionally oily eyelids but it might work for you will I repurchase? No I won’t have already found an eye primer which is on its way, keep guessing till then which primer I am talking about and let me tell you it is super dooper affordable don’t worry will review it soon when it got delivered and i will try and test it till then keep glowing girls.

Hope My Review helped you to get an idea about this Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Bold Gold...
