Yes, I've been a bad blogger! I've neglected my blog for almost a week now! *gasps* It's weird, I just haven't been in the mindset to write! And I could not have worse timing for such a mindset because I have a gazillion reviews to do!
So I'mma take baby steps and start small, with a review of Maybelline's Color Tattoo Eyeshadow! I know all you Indian babes are ecstatic that it's finally here, right? ^o^
There are 8 shades released in India, all of them are AWESOME! I had taken crappy cellphone pics of swatches for all of them but they are so horrible, i can't bear to put them up! But a lot of bloggers have already put them up so just google it! Lol!
These epic cream shadows have been compared to MAC paint pots, having never tried the paint pots, I can't judge! Anyway, these babies promise 24 hour, crease less wear. I haven't tested them for that long but I'll tell you my experience. :D
Rs.350/- Not too high, not too low for 4g of product. :) I got it for Rs.315 at Beauty Center btw!
The eyeshadow comes in a sealed glass jar with a black screw off lid. The lid has all the details writtn on it, whereas the jar has Color Tattoo printed in silver. For the month of September, each Color Tattoo shadow comes with a free eyeshadow brush! So hurry to get yours. :)
I suggest storing these upside down, not only does it help you find the colour more easily, but they don't dry out either. ^-^
I love this purple! It's a little on the lavender side and a bit sheer butit can be built up to an amazing jewel tone intensity! I picked this one because I really don't need more neutral shadows but the gold and bronze are really pretty as well! Next I'm going to pick up Edgy Emrald! A wonderful green, :)
Swatch on the left, spread on right. You can see how sheer it is but in my EOTD you can see how I've built the intensity. It sets in seconds, so you have to work fast!
I had this swatch on my hand for at least 10 hours and only after I had washed my hand for the 5th time could I see some fading, I just did my daily doings with it on and it stayed with no transfer or creasing. On my lids, which are crazy oily in this weather btw, it stayed on for a good 7 hours with no creasing even though I had layered it.
It will ONLY come off with an oil based makeup remover! I had to scrub my arm with normal cleanser in the store and it didn't even budge! Good show, Maybelline!
I will definitely be buying more of these, I'm eyeing Edgy Emerald and Fierce and Tangy next! The only issues with the Color Tattoo I had was, this colour is sheer, so I use more product to build it up, so it is a waste. Luckily this is not the case with ALL of them! Secondly, it is best applied with a sponge applicator or finger so that maybe a problem for some!

0.5 for the sheer finish. .___.
Have you tried any of the Color Tattoo shadows yet? Which ones do you like? ^u^
