Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eye Shadow

One of my first purchases whilst here in Florida was the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eye Shadows.  I thought that the heat and humidity here would be a good test to see the durability of these eye shadows.

I purchased Tough as Taupe and Audacious Asphalt.





These shadows remind me of the MAC Paint Pots in texture and application.  They are easy to apply with your finger for a light colour wash or with a brush for a more precise application.  They are perfect for the the more mature eyelid as they have a smoothing effect on the eyelid.


L to R Tough as Taupe and Audacious Asphalt

Tough as Taupe is a matt Taupe that has a very grey undertone.  Audacious Asphalt is a dark grey with a navy undertone, it has a tiny bit of shimmer in it and also works well as a liner.

I have tried these shadows with and without a primer and to be honest you don't actually need a primer.  I have to say that the staying power is amazing.  It has been between 86 and 89 degrees here every day and these shadows have stayed put until I remove them.  I am really impressed with these shadows and will be picking up a few more before returning home.  I paid $5.59 from Walgreens.
