Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow – Painted Purple

Hi Everyone,

How was your weekend? I finally watched “Cocktail,” found it to be just about okay with some “over-the-top” acting by Saif and no acting as usual by DP (Deepika).  By the way, just realized there are 2 DPs in the movie ;P Oh and I also paid tribute to Friday the 13th by watching Abraham Lincoln the Vampire Slayer.  It’s an AWESOME MOVIE! Totally loved it and the edge-of-the-seat action sequences. Highly recommended!  Anyway, much as I would love to tell you more about my weekend, let’s come to the review.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow Painted Purple

I am going to review the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hr eyeshadow in the shade “Painted Purple.”  Its a vibrant purple cream shadow and I fell in love with the color instantly.


6 .99 USD as far as I remember.

Product Description by Maybelline:

Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow. Our ink technology creates super-saturated color. Cream gel smoothes on for vibrant color that does not fade.

FOR BEST RESULTS – High impact look: Illuminate. With fingertips, sweep all over eye from inner corner and work outwards. For added drama, darken as desired.

A cute glass pot like the MAC Paint Pots.


Its called “Painted Purple” and this is a bold vibrant purple that transfers as the exact color that you see in the pot above. I have brown eyes and therefore, I love my plums and purples for the eyes and needless to say I fell in love with the color the minute I saw it.

My Experience with Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow – Painted Purple:

These eyeshadows are insanely pigmented and what you see in the pot is exactly what you get! Their claim of this staying on forever is also true! I applied this in the morning last weekend when I was going out and in spite of the heat this did not budge an inch or crease, yayyyyy!

I love the soufflé like texture; however, I find it a little difficult to blend this uniformly on my eyes and it does not apply evenly. It is very smooth but the minute I try to blend it on my lids, one part of the shadow dries up, so I have to be super quick in blending it.

I actually find it better as an eyeshadow base rather than wearing it as an actual color on the lids because of their lasting power and the pigmentation. I wore this beneath MAC’s Plum Dressing and it turned out to be awesome!

Here’s a swatch:


Oh and that’s my new ring that I bought recently, totally loving it!

Pros of Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow – Painted Purple:

  • Insanely pigmented.
  • Bold vibrant purple color that looks very good on brown-eyed gals.
  • Acts as a great eyeshadow base.
  • Stays on forever and this is from an oily-skinned person like me.
  • Does not crease or slide after setting.

Cons of Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow – Painted Purple:

  • I don’t think it applies very evenly. I tried a few of the other shades that my friends bought and they applied very nicely and evenly. This one was an exception.
  • You need to blend it with the speed of light, otherwise it dries very quickly on your lids and doesn’t budge.
  • I find that I can’t use an eyeshadow brush with this, I have to apply it with my fingers which I don’t like.
  • There are only 10 shades available.

Overall Verdict:

I think for the price, its definitely a hit! If nothing, they are cheaper eyeshadow bases than the MAC Paint Pots with as much staying power!

Hope you liked the post, have a great week!
