I have never been a fan of cream eye products. I have always found them to be a little lack-luster and that always crease on me, even when i use a primer.So you can imagine my surprise when I fell in love with one of the new Maybelline Color Tattoo's, in 'On and on Bronze'.
Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo - £4.99 (superdrug and boots)
The first thing that caught my eye was that it looked like 'smog' from the naked palette 1, which i wear almost every day. In reality it is slightly darker, but still as wearable!
The color transfers as a gorgeous golden brown, which is perfect for wearing on the outer half / crease, or all over for a night-time look. It's described as a 'gel-cream eyeshadow' which is pretty accurate. It has the staying power of a gel and creamy consistency of a high quality paint pot. The best part? It doesn't crease! I don't even need to use a primer :)
I can't help feel like Maybelline have missed out on a trick though. The color range of the tatoo's is poor. Really poor. This and the white one are the only ones that have tempted me. They need to bring out a nude range! Like the mac paint pots, they would be universally popular and much more wearable. hinthinthint
I would definitaly reccomend you go and have a little swatch session with these though, at £4.99 you can't really go wrong!
