What we say:
‘When the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow landed on my desk a few weeks ago, the 24-hour claim intrigued me. I love a good challenge. That was until I realised I had to test the Endless Purple shade… for 24 hours! So, there I found myself one Saturday morning, 9am, walking through P’nP, rocking purple eye shadow. Luckily I only received one confused look from a security guard. I think everyone else just assumed I hadn’t washed my make-up off from the night before.

‘When after 12 hours the eye shadow still appeared 80% as fresh as when I’d applied it that morning, I was impressed. Sure some of it had dissolved into my skin, but I had just been wearing it for 12 HOURS. By 9pm I was so bored of only wearing one colour that I blended it with the Timeless Black cream shadow. Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow has a striking colour upon first application, but it also blends really well into a smoky eye. If you’re going to be blending it though, it’s best done when still “fresh” as the colour tends to “set” in anticipation of those 24 hours pretty soon after application. Also, make sure you’ve got a pretty good eye make-up remover handy. Wipes will remove some of the cream shadow, but not all of it.’

  1. I am interested in purchasing the Maybelline colour tattoo 24hr cream eyeshadow but I see it’s not available in any of the stores in SA. May you please advise where I can get them from. I also tried looking it up online but the maybelline site that I’m picking up is only for USA customers.

  2. These eye shadows are not the most inexpensive eye shadows I have ever purchased. It is around R95 per pot. I picked up Permanent Taupe, a beautiful taupe shade, and was really excited to try it after reading amazing things about it. I don’t know if this particular shade was just a dud but it was terrible to use. The product felt quite hard to touch and once I had it on my finger, it was practically impossible to get it off of my finger and onto my eyelid, leaving me with a very patchy difficult-to-blend eyeshadow look. To make matters worse, this was not a “tattoo” at all, this one faded within an hour. So all the work that had to go into getting the shadow onto my lids and then blending it out was all for nothing.

    From my experience I would not recommend these and I never plan to try them again. The other shades might be better, I just don’t care to find out.

  3. This eyeshadow is NOT for the faint hearted! These eyeshadows are vibrant, bold and perfect for someone who is daring enough! I have it in a beautiful royal purple shade. I’m not completely brave enough to use this as a full eyeshadow, so instead… I apply it as a purple eyeliner. This eyeshadow has a really rich texture which is creamy and once it’s applied… IT STAYS! I would really recommend this if you would like a neon coloured eyeliner.

  4. I love creating very striking and defined eye designs and this product is great for that. My eyes are quite hooded so eyeshadow tends to rub off quite easily but this product really helped with that problem.
