Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow


Hello lovelies,

Two weeks ago, my sister sent me some Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadows, but I wanted to test them out and make sure they lived up to their "24hr" claim (which they didn't) before posting anything on them.

From left to right: Fierce & Tangy, Bold Gold, Bad to the Bronze, Tough as Taupe, Pomegranate Punk, Audacious Asphalt.

Fierce & Tangy: An electrified carrot juice orange.

Bold Gold: A shimmery medium-toned yellow-gold.

Bad to the Bronze: A metallic taupe-bronze.

Tough as Taupe: A cool toned matte wet concrete grey with a purple-mauve undertone. 

Pomegranate Punk: A Shimmery brown based plummy-pomegranate-burgundy.

Audacious Asphalt: A shimmery bluish-gunmetal grey with a slight greenish tinge.

I get about 9 hours of wear with the Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadows...and for reference, I don't have oily eyelids- my skin type is normal to dry. 

I really enjoy Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadows; they work well as a base or worn alone, as a wash of color on the lid. They blend easily, don't crease or fade (for at least 9 hours anyway), are perfect for summer, since that's when I tend to swatch to cream eyeshadows and blushes. 

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadows retail for $6.99 each. But, I believe my sister purchased these eyeshadows during a "buy one get one 50% off" promotion.  

Have you tired the Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadows? If so, What's your favorite shadow?


Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  1. I love these...my fave is too cool, a white silvery one that just amps up whatever eyeshadow shade you are using...

    1. I know what you mean, we don't have these in Japan either. And when we finally get them, they'll probably be ridiculously priced.

  8. Still waiting for these to launch where I live :) Amazing swatches, you confirmed that I definitely need Bad to the Bronze. I was also wanting to get Tough as Taupe, but I'm not sure about the shade of grey that it is, I'm thinking it might not be too flattering with my skin tone. The asphalt shade looks quite pretty as well, I like the kind of greenish tinge that I'm picking up from your swatch - not sure if that's just the camera though :)

    1. Yes, you definitely need Bad to the Bronze, it's a winner!! and you're right Tough as Taupe is a tricky color to work with, since it can look a bit too cool and look unflattering on certain skin tones. What shade of foundation do you wear again (i.e. mac, dior, chanel, etc)?
