Product Review & 2x #MOTD: Maybelline Colour Tattoo

I finally tested out the Maybelline Colour Tattoo and have done two looks with it: one a very simple, everyday winged look and the other with a bit of colour! I'm using the shade On and On Bronze

I'm gonna go right ahead an say that I love this product. Best applied with fingers, it glides on and sits beautifully. It's hi-shine and pretty creamy in texture, but even for people with oily lids (me!) it seems to sit tight. Try and prime it first if you do struggle with shadows moving. I used Urban Decay Primer Potion and it sat tight for a long time (no, I did not test it on its "24 hour" claim because that's plain silly. Be my guest though.)

Here's the Maybelline Colour Tattoo with Winged Liner:
Here's how I decided to use it. I used it kind of 'neatly' but this could also be used for a messy 'greasy' grunge kind of eye. 
  1. After priming my lids, I applied the Maybelline Colour Tattoo to my lid.  Look at the job I made of though *lol* It really doesn't matter though as I was always going to put shadow over it anyway.
  2. I then took a beige shadow through my crease and applied a dark brown to my outer V
  3. I then added a little more of the colour tattoo to replace any lost in the shadow, lined my eyes and added mascara and Wet n Wild Bare It All to my lips
Here's a the Maybelline Colour Tattoo with a dash of purple: 
Here I've followed the exact same process as above but added purple shadow (Urban Decay Grifter) to my lower lashline, forgone winged eyeliner and added false lashes instead. I adore colour on the lower lashes at the minute, and so do a lot of beauty youtubers/bloggers...I have a feeling it's going to be big for Spring/Summer.
On top of the nude shade I added the purple shadow to create a soft purple lip. This is a great trick if you want a lip colour that's bright. Whilst it's not the most comfortable of lip looks, it still looks great for a night out. 

I'm a massive fan of the Colour Tattoo formula and can't wait to get my hands on some more. This shade is really versatile though so if you haven't yet purchased one, this is a great starting point. 

Have you tried any of the colour tattoos? What kind of lip colour do you pair it with? Let me know!

  6. WOW! You have beautiful eyes and the eyeshadows really enhances it even more. I especially love the second look with the purple eyeshadow on your lower lashline. I should try this look, simple but pretty at the same time. :)
