Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hrs Creme Gel Shadow

Hey Dolls,

I’m writing this quick review is about these two beautiful eyeshadows from Maybelline. I know they’ve been on the market for while but I felt the need to talk about it lol..

Usually, I don’t really like investing my money on drugstore eyeshadows (The reason being is because for me eye shadows have to be really, really pigmented and blendable), but since I like some of the Maybelline products I decided to give it a go and buy two Color Tattoo 24hrs Shadows. Obviously, that since they are really cheap you won’t get MAC quality but I’d say that if you are on a budget they are actually pretty good.

I really liked the color selection and I wanted to buy more of them but most of colors were sold out at Boots (On Grafton St.). So, I had no choice but only bought two, but it was fine, as I was bit sceptical and just wanted to give it a try.


The gel texture is a kind of strange to work with (At least I found)… and rather thick, but I must admit they are highly pigmented, however, they do crease so to avoid it from happening I would use a similar color powder eyeshadow under the Color Tattoo.


I got them in these in shades: Turquoise Forever and Eternal Gold.

Pros: The price, definitely! I paid around €10.99 on each one but I know some other places are cheaper than that, also they last quite long even without primer.

Cons: I didn’t like the texture and the fact that it creases a little.

My overall impression is good, I wasn’t expecting much anyways so I’m quite happy with them and definitely want to buy some more in different colors.

Here are the swatches on my skin:



In the photo above I applied the Eternal Gold eyeshadow  all over my lid and on the inner corners of my eyes, then I applied eyeliner and mascara (Nothing fancy lol), just for you guys to see how it looks on the skin.



Have you guys ever tried the Color Tattoo Shadows? Do you have never favorite color that you would recommend me?
