Maybelline Colour tattoo : NEW shades

Maybelline color tattoo 24hr : New shades

Recently I picked up two brand new shades of maybelline's 24hr colour tattoo eye-shadows to add to my ever-growing collection of cream eye-shadows. I have three more of these, and absolutely love them - so these next two were welcome additions, plus they were only £4.99 and buy one get one half price ... totally justified purchase to a make-up-a-holic. 

Permanent Taupe & Pink Gold 


Left - Permanent Taupe, Right - Pink Gold. 

Firstly, Permanent Taupe is completely matte - which is something I've never experienced in a cream shadow format before, the rest are all shimmer colours (which I love). Pink Gold was one of those shades I looked at and inside my head thought *No Jess, you don't need this and you WON'T wear a pink eyeshadow* I was wrong, I bloomin' well love it. In fact - I love them both! Swatches are below - as you can see, amazing pigmentation and colour payoff for both colours.

Permanent Taupe - Almost grey like brown, completely matte, dark base but completely blendable and amazing under neutral shadows for a smokey look. Staying power is amazing. 

Pink Gold - Almost rose gold with a gorgeous shimmer throughout, applies like a dream and looks lovely alone of mixed with any of the shades from my naked or naked 2 palette. Very pretty - and again, amazing staying power. 

These are a perfect alternative to Mac Paint-pots and are a steal at less than £5 each! The majority of colours are very wearable and last all day, a pocket-friendly investment in my opinion! Have you tried these colour tattoos? What's your favourite shade?

  3. Oooh these are so pretty! I love Permanent Taupe, but I'd be a little bit scared of wearing pink eyeshadow I think - I'd love to see how you wear it?
