Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe Review

Maybelline has gotten a lot of hype this year with all of the great products they've come out with. One which is the Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadows that I've heard endless good things about. I finally caved and picked up one to test them out. I decided on Tough as Taupe as it looked like a nice colour for fall.

Tough as Taupe is a taupy/brown/grey colour with no shimmer or sheen. I usually just apply and blend this cream eyeshadow with my finger as this is the quickest and easiest way I've found. Usually I apply my NARS Smudge Proof Base underneath for extra assurance that this cream eyeshadow wont be going anywhere throughout the day. I really like this colour and I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of it this fall in school when I'm in a hurry to get to school. This works great on its own or under any eyeshadow. As to its 24 hour claim, I've found that this isn't true. I've worn this from 6 am to about 11 pm and this definitely did not last till I washed my makeup at the end of the day. At around 8 pm the colour had faded and at about 11 pm it was almost completely gone. Also it's important to note that I wore my NARS base underneath and no eyeshadow on top of the Maybelline color tattoo. If I applied eyeshadow on top of it probably could have made it through the entire day without it disappearing on me. 

Another reason I really like this product is that it does not crease on me! I have a couple MAC paint pots and I find with those halfway through the day they have creased on me. 


Overall, I think Maybelline has come out with an amazing product. These last long, have great colour payoff and do not crease. What more could you ask for? I'm definitely going to pick up a few more! 

Have you tried of the Maybelline Color Tattoos? What are your thought on them? 

Have a great day!
