Color Tattoo - Review!

Hey Beauts,

Today I bring you a quick review of the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze (Bad to the Bronze - RRP: £4.99).
I was completely sceptical about this when the whole hype started! Never have I tried a cream eyeshadow before and in my head 'Why put creamy on oily? - It will just slide off'. Well I was wrong. This stuff is amazing and I completely see the hype that surrounded it. To top it off - creamy and oily go well together! 

The pigmentation is brilliant and the fact that it just glides on so well and stays where you want it to means you can easily create a slight smokey eye only using this product alone! The colour itself is phenomenal. When I first picked this up I thought the colouring would be way too dark for my eyes and completely hollow them out but it doesn't, It compliments them beautifully. The packaging itself has that nice weighty glass feeling too, just making it seem as though the product is worth a lot more than £4.99 - Even the way the lid unscrews makes me feel special for owning it and who doesn't like feeling special? 

One of the things I like the most about this is that if you don't want too make-up on you can just use this, blend it out a little into the crease. If you wanted to go further you could add a pinky white for highlighting the brow bone/inner eye area and your done! It looks so natural and just pretty. This had been my go to look since I first tried this too! I just love it! I won't be going crazy and buying a lot of these though. I'll never wear any of the pinks and blues but Eternal Gold and 25K Gold look absolutely stunning and seen as how I'm more of a lighter shade wearing, I will definaly be picking those up soon! :D
The only thing I don't like about this is 'color' is spelt C-O-L-O-U-R. It just annoys me :P

I feel as though right now I should say sorry for not posting all week! I went back to University and I'm in my final semester so I have a really big workload for the next 12 - 15 weeks, I also went out clubbing (Post coming soon) But I fell over (weak ankles) and ended up in A&E (Haha). It's only sprained but it's swollen so much! So thanks for sticking here in my absence and if you're new and enjoying my blog remember to follow on GFC and/or Bloglovin' so you don't miss out on anything. :) <3

  6. HA! I totally get you with the whole "color" and "colour" thing! Living in Canada we spell it "colour" but being so close to the States we get a lot of products from there and they're spelt differently!! Errgh!
    Great COLOUR though haha I've got the Bad To The Bronze one and the cream gel's a nice change!

    Good luck with your last semester! Home stretch!! :)
