Maybelline 24 HR Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow: Bad to The Bronze Review

     First, thanks for your patience in all the blog design changes that you may or may not have noticed recently.  I've been getting to know photoshop a bit better and once I think I like a design I've made, I keep  feeling like it could be better. So, then I change it.  Ever feel that way?  That it's just not quite the way you want it?  Well, hopefully the end result will be easier for you to navigate and pretty to look at.  Just wanted to say thanks for your patience with the work in progress :)
     Now on to the good stuff.  I recently won a great prize from fellow beauty blogger at Green Eyed Monster.  Thanks! Yay!  It was a box full of goodies, one being Maybelline's Color Tattoo 24 hr Cream Gel Shadow in Bad to the Bronze.  Check it out:
     It has been a long while since I've tried any cream shadows.  I've been hearing good things about these particular ones, so I was grateful  to have won and get the opportunity to try it out.  I have been wearing this almost daily for about two weeks now.  Good Stuff!    
     Overall,  I really liked it from the get go.  Perfect for when I want a quick easy look and good for spicing up my more detailed looks.  I will definitely be trying more colors in the future!

  • Ink technology providing high pigment
  • Available in 9 shades
  • Cream formula
  • Ophthalmologist tested
  • 24 hr wear
  •  Retails at $5.49- $6.99 at most stores
  • Packaged in small glass pot with twist off plastic lid (durable)


  • Great bronze color
  • Color can be built up for more dramatic look
  • Really lasts all day
  • Not too shimmery or glittery( A classy grown-up glitz)
  • No creasing, smearing, running, or smudging, it just stayed put
  • Blended well with my shadows
  • Great for quick looks (just need a swipe of this and liner and you're out the door)
  • Didn't need primer
  • Nice color selection 
  • Looks deceivingly glittery in package and photos, which could deter purchases

Have you tried any of the Color Tattoo Shadows? 

I'd love to hear how they worked for you!

  5. I'm so glad you like it! I hope to host another giveaway when I get to 10,000 views and I may have a few more these up my sleeve - including limited editions ;)

  6. I do the same thing! I love this because I can do a swipe and go!

  7. Love this shade too! I find the formula a little dry but the shade is beautiful so I'm willing to deal. :)
