Easy Eye Perfection: Maybelline Color Tattoo

The easiest way to create a perfect eye look is a good base product. One of the best options available are the very affordable Maybelline Color Tattoos.

This is a long-lasting cream eye shadow you can use as a normal eye shadow or as a base for your look. I find it easiest to apply these with my fingers and then carefully blend using my fingertips. The Color Tattoos come in a glass jar that looks pretty on your dresser and allows you to see the color but is perhaps not the best for travel.

These come in a variety of colors and I have three: Barely Branded, Nude Pink, and Tough as Taupe.

Barely Branded (70) is a metallic golden shade. A great color to sweep all over your eyelid in five seconds for a instant sophisticated look.

Nude Pink (250) is my favorite nude shade, but unfortunately this was a limited edition. Combine it with a winged liner for that ultimate retro look.

Tough as Taupe (35) is a matte brown shade that works well as a shadow color in the crease.

The Color Tattoos are certainly long lastig and create a great base for a lasting make-up look. If I use this underneath my eyeliner, it will stay in place longer although not as well as with the Urban Decay primer potion I reviewed earlier this week. I tend to use the Color Tattoos on normal days and save my Urban Decay primer for special occasions.

De makkelijkste manier om een perfecte oog make-up te creëren is een goed basis product. Een van de beste opties is de heel betaalbare Maybelline Color Tattoos.

Deze lang houdbare crème oogschaduw kun je gebruiken als ene gewone oogschaduw of als een goede basis voor de rest van je look. Ik breng dit product het liefst aan met mijn vingers en gebruik daarna mijn vingertoppen om het voorzichtig te vervagen. De Color Tattoos komen in een glazen potje dat er lief uitziet op je kaptafel en waardoor je meteen de kleur kunt zien. Misschien niet het handigst voor op reis.

Ze bestaan in veel verschillende kleuren en ik heb er drie: Barely Branded, Nude Pink, en Tough as Taupe.

Barely Branded (70) is een metalen gouden kleur. Een geweldige kleur die je in vijf seconden over je hele ooglid aan kunt brengen voor een snelle maar chique look.

Nude Pink (250) is mijn favoriete nude kleur, helaas was dit een limited edition. Combineer deze met een mooie eyeliner voor de ultieme retro look.

Tough as Taupe (35) is een matte bruine tint die heel goed werkt als schaduw in de arcadeboog.

De Color Tattoos zijn zeker lang houdend en zorgen dat je make-up langer mooi blijft zitten. Als ik het onder mijn eyeliner gebruik blijft deze langer zitten maar niet zo goed als met de Urban Decay primer potion die ik eerder deze week besprak. Ik gebruik deze Color Tattoos bijna dagelijks en bewaar de Urban Decay primer voor speciale gelegenheden.

    I’ve heard so many good things about these that I almost don’t believe it. Cream eyeshadows tend to crease on me.

      I love them, absolutely no creasing for me. But they are the only cream shadows I own, so i cant compare them to any others for you, sorry.

    Barely Branded is one of my absolute beauty must-haves. I use it every day as a base for my eye makeup and as a highlight in the inner corners of my eyes. Love!

    I think I’m going to pick up Tough as Taupe, it’s really pretty and it’s mat. Pink Gold is the only Color Tatoo I own and I love it, because the color is a light shimmery pink. Maybelline Color Tatoos are really quick and easy!

      Thanks 😀 These are really great quality and quite affordable 😀 They do not budge easily so they work great as a base as well.

      Oh yes, they are the drugstore equivalent of mac paint pots I guess, although I haven’t tried those yet so I can’t quite compare them 😀

    I like the Color Tatoos! They are super long lasting, I’ve put Creamy Beige yesterday to go to the gym and it lasted all day!

      They are really great at staying put under any condition 🙂 I just wish Maybelline made a couple more matte shades, most of them are a bit sparkly for me.
