- Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hour Eyeshadow: Metallic Pomegranate...

Whilst browsing Boots at the weekend, I noticed there was a 3 for 2 offer on all Maybelline products. After hearing a lot about their Color Tattoo 24hour Eyeshadows and Color Drama lipsticks (post coming soon) I decided to pick up a few bits.

I was initially searching for the popular shade 'On and On Bronze', but as usual it was sold out. I then decided to test out the other shades available which is when 70-Metallic Pomegranate stood out to me. Containing teeny, tiny specks of gold shimmer, I'm more than happy with this shade! Dusky pink shades similar to this have been highly favoured this A/W, with MAC's eyeshadow in 'Cranberry' making a huge comeback.

These color tattoos from Maybelline really are something special. The cream gel formula makes them easy to dab on with fingertips and they blend in super smoothly. The pigmentation is perfect and you can either wear this shade for a daytime look like the images above, or build it up for a glamorous evening look.

Retailing at just £4.99, it is now clear to me why these eyeshadows are so popular and I'll definitely be picking up some more shades.

Have you tried these Color Tattoos? What do you think of this shade?

  15. This colour is so beautiful, it looks like on of those rare cosmetics that could be used all year round; both in winter for a festive tint, as well as during summer for a touch of femininity. It looks great on you! :)

  44. I am a huge fan of Maybelline Colour Tattoo and has been eyeing this shade for the longest time. I haven't bought it because it looks so red in the pot. Thankfully I see it actually looks really soft and subtle on you so I will definitely be picking this up soon!
