Maybelline 24H Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate | Review

Sunday, 10 November 2013

I am now failing terribly at the #bedn challenge but this cold has really taken my energy out of me! I'm finally starting to feel a bit more normal after 5 days. Anyway, I've been meaning to review this for ages, I think it may possibly be my most loved eye shadow ever. Even more than MAC's Satin Taupe and that's saying something!

I only own two Colour Tattoo's; On and On Bronze and Metallic Pomegranate and I've been super impressed with them both. On and On Bronze I've had for a while now (like, 1.5 years) and it has started to dry up a little but I think I did leave the lid off a couple of times, woops.

This is just the perfect eye shadow colour for Autumn/Winter. I did worry that it would make me look ill but it's just a gorgeous warm shade that really brings out my hazel eyes. It's a really smooth, creamy consistency as you would expect from a cream eye shadow and it's extremely pigmented.

I tend to dip my little finger in the pot and build it up gradually so I don't end up with a patchily applied eye shadow as it does dry quite quickly and it will not budge once it's dried.  It looks lovely on it's own but I also love to blend a little Satin Taupe or Espresso into my crease to make it a little smokier and add a pop of Nylon into the inner corners and it really does look so pretty.

As you can see, it is a deep wine/burgundy shade with flecks of gold glitter running through it. You can definitely see the glitter once applied but I really like it, I love a bit of sparkle. It doesn't feel gritty in any way and doesn't irritate my eyes. The staying power is brilliant, I apply a primer before anyway but there's no creasing and it looks the exact same in the evening when I remove it as it did when I first applied it.
Despite it's long lasting properties, it is not a problem to remove at all and comes off easily leaving no trace behind.

Overall, I just love this eye shadow and I'm eyeing up a variety of purple based shadows now to add to my collection, I'm looking at you Cranberry. On a side note, the Naked 3 Palette is looking gorgeous with it's rose hues, I don't currently own any and this one looks like it may well be the first that I'll purchase!
