Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Swatches & Review

When I initially saw these I automatically thought of MAC Paint Pots. I thought these would be a great alternative to use as an eyeshadow base and the whole "24hr" pretty much sold me. The first time I swatched these on the back of my hand, I automatically noticed how creamy they were (almost buttery!). Just a tiny bit of this stuff goes a long way because the color pay off is amazing! I decided to pick up more neutral shades rather than the vibrant colors so I can opt out of using my more high end eyeshadow bases and use these instead.

CONS:
□ Not enough neutral or matte shades


FINAL THOUGHTS:
□ I definitely recommend these for everyone. Whether you're on a budget or not, it's always nice to have a good eyeshadow base on hand and these are definitely worth having. Since I have oily eyelids I usually start off with UDPP (even when using MAC Paint Pots) because my eyeshadow will crease. But these do not budge or crease and they definitely make your shadows last longer. I only hope that in the future Maybelline will come out with more matte and neutral shades that will cater to people who aren't into shimmers or bright colors.
