Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow

I have a real obsession right now for cream based eye shadows, they are just so much easier to work with and you don't get any fall out like you do with shadows. So when these Maybelline beauties were released I knew I had to get my hands on them. 

I picked up On and On Bronze and Creamy Beige but there are loads and I mean loads of different shades within the collection. These two just fitted nicely into my boring nude/neutral colour palette. On and On Bronze is a lovely, funnily enough, bronze colour. It has a real nice shimmer to it making it perfect for an evening and Creamy Beige is a real smooth beige shade that is great for day time wear. 

When something is described as 24 hour wear I am always a little skeptical as I just think well nothing stays put for 24 hours so why say it does. Not that I have ever worn these shadows for 24 hours so I can't actually say whether they would last that long or not but I have worn them all day and night without topping up so a good 14-16 hours; honestly I think they would have lasted even longer so I can imagine that they would give it a good go at lasting for 24 hours. There are no signs of creasing or bleeding into the corners of your eyes, no smudging; they are pretty much bullet proof. 

I know what you're thinking if they stay on that well then they must be a b***h to remove, not at all. They remove just as easy with the rest of my makeup when using my usual cleansing oil. 

Overall I am really impressed with these shadows and considering they are a drugstore brand they are much better than some high end products that I have tried and bought. 

Have you tried these shadows?

  1. On and On Bronze is the eyeshadow I opt for on days when I haven't got much time to do my make up - it looks great on its own and as a base!

  6. I loooove on and on bronze. Such a gorgeous colour and lasts forever on me, even though I have oily lids. Creamy Beige is also really pretty. It's a dupe for my beloved Mac Groundwork Paintpot. Love it for fresh / "no makeup" makeup days. :) x
