Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Eye Shadow | £4.99 each

Hello everyone! So today I'm going to be reviewing yet another product from Maybelline, but this time it's one of which I'm completely obsessed with! These are the infamous Maybelline Color Tattoos and the shades that I have are: "On and on Bronze" and "Metallic Pomegranate". I've been using these cream eye shadows pretty much every single time I've done my makeup over the past few weeks and I have to say, I'm addicted!
If you want to know the ins and outs of why I love these little beauties, then do keep on reading.

So like I said, the two shades that I own are "On and On Bronze" and "Metallic Pomegranate". On and On Bronze is a gorgeous bronze shade with a golden shimmer running through it. This is the shade I use the most as it's a perfect everyday eye shadow that can work with a whole range of other colours. Metallic Pomegranate is a deep bronze toned berry shade which also has golden shimmer in it. This shade is absolutely perfect for this time of year and to me, it looks like Christmas in a pot! I like to use this shade more for night time looks or if I want a darker eye look. Each of these shades are so versatile as they can either be worn as eye shadow bases, as a lid colour or just on their own for a quick and easy eye look!

As you can see from the swatches in the photo above, their pigmentation is amazing and well worth the £4.99 price tag! These cream eye shadows apply beautifully to the eye lid, are smooth, soft and so easy to work with as you can simply use your finger to blend them out. They also have amazing staying power and I completely agree that they are 24 hour wear. They also make any other shadows you put over the top stay put all day, so if you don't use a primer, they're the perfect product to use as an eye shadow base.

The packaging of these little pots is really nice and I love that they made them in glass so they have a good amount of weight to them. This makes them look and feel like a high end product and I've heard they're very similar to the MAC paint pots. They have a simple black screw on lid that's very secure and will help stop them from drying out quickly.

So overall, as you may have already guessed, I'm completely in love with the Maybelline Color Tattoos! I think the two shades that I have are so easy to work with and compliment my eyes and skin tone really well. These are a definite staple in my makeup bag!

What are your thoughts on the Maybelline Color Tattoos?
What other shades would you recommend me to try out?


  1. Really want to get my hands on these! The pigmentation looks amazing and the two shades you picked up are perfect!

  2. Hello dear! These shadows are definitely highly pigmented! I would recommend you to try a plum shade which is going to be so trendy this year!

  5. Love the pictures! I've swatched On and On Bronze and wanted it and now I want Metallic Pomegranate too! I'd like to wear them as just an all over colour I think! Do they blend nicely together?xx

    1. I haven't actually blended the two shades together, but they blend out really easily on their own :) xx

  6. I can't believe I haven't tried these yet! I really need to, I've heard such good things :)xo

  7. Love, love them :) You should try the Permanent taupe. It's also gorgeous :)

  8. these look gorgeous - definitely want to try on and on bronze! x

  9. Oooh I need to add Metallic Pomegranate to my collection, such a pretty colour ;-)

  10. I have Metallic Pomegranate and it's soo nice for the outer corners.

  11. Lovely review, I definitely agree that they make the other eye shadows you use stay put for longer :) I need to add metallic pomegranate to my collection! :)

  12. they look soo nice! I have Metallic Pomegranate and am dying to try it, but really want to take photos of it first lol. These two look like they go together so well x

  13. these are so pretty! thank you for the swatches.


  14. These are lush, especially the pomegranate one xx

  15. I really want to give On & On Bronze a go, looks right up my street! x

  16. I purchased the pomegranate one because it's such a gorgeous color for fall. The only way I tried to use it so far was applying as a lower lid liner and I didn't have much success with that. It needs some weight to apply so to just gently glide on with a pencil brush wasn't too perfect. But it is really gorgeous and I'm excited to experiment with it for fall.

    These are definitely very nicely packaged. I think that's what sold me on them because I have tons of creme shadows from Revlon in their color palettes so wasn't really in need of anything drugstore brand of this type of product, but the packaging is amazing!!


  17. I love these cream eyeshadows! I've only got one, in the shade "on and on bronze" but I'd really like to try out the pomegranate shade or the rose gold :)

  18. I need to get Metallic Pomegranate, it's so pretty!xx

  19. You got me to go out and buy some of these and I am in love, thank you <3

  20. I love On and On Bronze, one of my everyday staples. Going to have to pick up Metallic Pomegranate now, I need a decent berry shade eye product xx

  22. Ahh what a coincidence :') I also reviewed these today! Although I have the on and on bronze shade and the eternal gold, which isn't quite as versatile as the bronze but I know what you mean about loving using these, they're quite beautiful!
    Your swatches are lovely too as always, a brilliant review!

  27. love these colours!:) Xxx

  28. Such pretty colours! This totally makes me wanna hit up the drugstore!

  29. I've used them before in other colors, and one color I loved and the other I hated. I've bought the dark purple shade twice now and both times it was not pigmented at all. The first one I thought maybe it was a bad batch and had dried out, but the second one was creamy in texture and still so sheer it just frustrated me. I have the teal shade though and love it.
