I've held off on buying some of these Maybelline Colour Tattoo eye creams as I had heard so many mixed thoughts on them which made me more and more hesitant about giving them a go. This changed when I was in Boots a while ago and noticed the three for two deal and nothing else really took my fancy so thought I'd take the risk and grab a couple to try out.
To start off I am so impressed with the staying power of these bad boys. On my skin these guys stick around. I wouldn't say it's for the 24 hours that it states in the name however an awfully long time. Even trying to take off my swatch in Boots took a while and had to completely remove it with my trusty steed Clarins make up remover when I got home.
The low down: I went for the shades Metallic Pomegranate and Permanent Taupe and will be going back for more. The shade Permanent Taupe is such a wearable everyday shade and looks great on its own or will a little darker shade popped into the crease. The Metallic Pomegranate on the other hand is my favourite of the two and love wearing it on its own. I used a MAC 217 to blend out the edge and it looked great. I found that it took a little while to completely blend it out but the finished result was just what I like from a red eye make up look. Like I said the staying power is great, especially perfect for a night out as sweat won't even budge them. I noticed a bit of creasing when using the cream without a primer so this is something I'm currently experimenting with several primers.
Overall I was pretty chuffed with these little guys and will most certainly be having another look in Boots on the next three for two as I love the look of the And On Bronze shade.
