Maybelline Colour Tattoo ♡


When it comes to cream eyeshadows I can admit that I'm still only remotely new as I've stuck with the same brand and only own a few colours. The last little spending spree I went on (you can find haul post here) I decided to treat myself to another Maybelline Colour Tattoo in the shade Metallic Pomegranate.

I will admit I didn't swatch it in the store and just looked at the colour inside the tub and to me it looks like the most gorgeous metallic purple with a hint of brown going through it, so when I finally did bring it home and swatched it I was a little confused. Don't get me wrong the colour swatched is stunning but I guess it's just because I was not expecting that colour that I was surprised.

I did wear it on my eyes a few times and have to say I do really like it, alot more than I thought I was going too. I simply just wear it all over the lid and blended into the crease with a tiny amount of black and it just gives such a lovely kind of grunge smokey eye look. I adore these products because you can layer them to make them more vibrant and they literally do not move off your eyelids until you choose to remove them.

I did do a little review last year on when I picked up the shade Pink Gold if you want to read more on that one and see swatches you can do so here. These cost €10.49 (I think they went up in price?) in Boots or £4.99 in Superdrug. They are something I'd definitely recommend having a look at if you don't want to spend a lot of time on your eye makeup but still make it look like you've made an effort, also if you're looking for something that's long lasting these are for you!

Have you tried any of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos?
