Maybelline Color Tattoo in Electric Blue

Maybelline products pictured here: Vivids lipstick in 900 Hot Plum, FitMe liquid foundation in 340 Cappuccino, Great Lash Lots of Lashes mascara, Illegal Lengths mascara, Color Elxir in Vision in Violet, and Color Tattoo in Electric Blue

Again I’m impressed with one of Maybelline’s eye products, but this time it’s an eye shadow and not a mascara. The first time I saw Color Tattoo being advertised – this was 2012 I think…or maybe late 2011; I can’t remember (my apologies). What I can say though, is that they got the ‘tattoo’ bit down pat, because this really stands up to the 24 hour claim! Whether you’re a makeup newbie/beginner, a junkie like myself or you just want to try something new, this is a great drugstore purchase.

The first line of Color Tattoos had brighter colours, such as orange, purple, and a bright blue that almost resembles turqoise – I wasn’t entirely sold because I couldn’t really figure out how to use them. The second set from what I can remember were the Color Tattoo Metals – this is where Electric Blue comes in. I saw the vivid navy blue shade and I just had to have it! If you’re looking for a cream shadow that is royal blue or a cobalt blue, this is not it; this is a cream navy blue eyeshadow. There’s also a line of nude Color Tattoos but I haven’t tried any of those shades; they look like perfect alternatives to MAC Paint Pots.

This is one of those products where a little goes a long way, so use it sparingly; I’ve had mine since January 2013 and it’s not even halfway through. The pigmentation, lack of creasing and longevityย in this areย also quite impressive. I use it without a primer and even after I try removing it with eye makeup remover, there’s always a little bit left the morning after.

How to use Color Tattoo:

Apply the Color Tattoo using a cream eyeshadow brush (Avon makes a good one), a stiff concealer brush, or just use your ring finger

This is definitely a good drugstore investment purchase, because even if you don’t like Electric Blue there are so many other shades! And Color Tattoo can easily be bought anywhere that sells Maybelline products.

  7. I love the Maybelline colour tattoos! My fave in the regular collection is bad to the bronze (or on and on bronze internationally) and I love when they bring out their limited edition neutral colours… I have quite a few. I am also interested in inked in pink for using underneath shadows in the naked three pallet to make them pop ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oohhh girl! You got the Naked 3? I didn’t know! I really wanna get it or the first Naked palette — I love the shades in the third one though. I really think they work as a nice base actually. And I wanna try Fierce and Tangy, cause I think that would be such a pretty orange shade for summer ๐Ÿ™‚
