Maybelline Tattoo Eyeshadow Pomegranate Punk Review,Swatches and EOTD
I’m sure most of you are familiar with the new Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr eyeshadows, by now! They’re everywhere on the blogosphere.. like , literally. I saw the new Maybelline display (with these, the new Dream Nude foundation, Dream Bouncy Blushes, etc.) on walgreens. and although I wait d a long time thinking it was just a hype, I finally caved in. These have been compared to MAC Paint Pots, so I was really curious to see how they work. I purchased the Eyeshadow Pomegranate Punk 30 because honestly, it was the only one that appealed to me.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadows come in 10 shades total. but most of them are very bright shades and I thought I won’t be able to carry them off. the others are either very ashy or highlighter kinds (totally my opinion. you guys might like them) Five neutrals & Five colors.
Packaging: The Color Tattoo eyeshadows come in a sturdy, medium-weight jar with a screw-top lid. Its a bit heavy though. Similar to the paint pots.
The shade Pomegranate Punk is a purpled merlot pearl with golden shimmer. It instantly appealed to me for its rich, reddened-berry hue with gold sparkle.
My experience with Pomegranate Punk : These cream-gel eyeshadows are supposed to have “intense, long-lasting color saturation,” according to Maybelline’s website. They definitely are nicely pigmented and smooth! this shadow applied smoothly and didn’t give a patchy effect. Maybelline claims these to last 24 hours. I honestly don’t think anyone would want to wear this for whole 24hrs but I’d say it will work for avery very long time (maybe 10 hrs) without major creasing, but some minor fading. You can minimize the fading by applying a shadow on top, and the product will stay longer.
The awesome part is that you can gradually build the color to make it as sheer or matte as you want. when I apply with my fingers t applies well but I noticed with the brush it sheers out a bit. It also has reflective particles in it to give off a great sheen. Also it really blends well which is surprising.
For the EOTD: I applied pomegranate punk on the lids and set it with translucent powder and applied liner and mascara.
So, Summing up:
– comes in 10 colors. brights & nudes
– great pigmentation.
– applies evenly.
– blends easily (before setting)
– stays for long. I’d give it 6-8hrs on my very oily lids… (dry lids ppl can stop dancing now…grrrr)
– does not crease.
– you can also layer it with eyeshadows and it gives a great effect.
– You can use them alone but I prefer a primer underneath.
– I just got an idea that I might try it as an eyeliner. will update it when I do 😉
– I wanted more wearable colors. I’d love to have a baby pink and maybe a matte brown (there’s no pleasing us naa)
– the purple and the orange and green looked a tad bold. I donno if maximum people would want those.
– Maybelline tests on animals. I really feel bad when I control so much and temptations get the better of me… 🙁
other than that no bads 🙂
Will I repurchase? I might. other shades though..
Will I recommend? I do.. everyone must have one in their kitty 🙂
