Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo's

I've been a fan of the maybelline colour tattoos since their release, and consider the shade 'on and on bronze' to be one of my favourite 'slap on and go eyeshadow' products, but since the purchase of my much loved mac 'eclair' paint pot, they've shunted to the back of the draw, up until now.

I recently had a complete sort out my my makeup collection and discovered a fair few forgotten loves, these being one of them. I soon scurried off to my local boots to pick up two new shades to try out for future smokey eye tutorials (coming soon): timeless black and metallic pomegranate. Now that i have a fair few in my collection, i thought i'd give them a little shout out and mini review.

Firstly, my favourite shade, on and on bronze. This one is a gorgeous cool toned almost taupe bronze shade, the opposite to mac eclair which is very very warm toned. i find that patted onto the lid and then blended out with fingers, this makes the eyes look 'done' whilst still being fairly subtle. It also gives the eyes slight dimension with it somehow managing to look darker in the crease and more shimmery in the centre. You can of course build this shade up to make it more dramatic, and it also looks great layered under other bronze shades (eg. mac woodwinked).

The rest of the shades are less wearable (in my opinion), but all great colours and of great quality. Permanent taupe is, as the name suggests, a taupe shade. It's grey with a slight hint of brown which means it doesnt make your eyes look too flat. It's completely matte, and works well as a basis for a cool toned smokey eye or paired with a purple lip. Metallic pomegranate is very similar to mac 'cranberry' eyeshadow but slightly more burgundy toned. it has silver shimmer in it which is quite subtle but helps to make it stand out more. This looks great paired with deep purple eyeshadows and cranberry which i mentioned earlier. Timeless black is an interesting shade, its pretty much matte black, but if you look closely you can see the tiniest amount of navy shimmer, which basically makes no difference once on the lid. This again is great for bold smokey eyes, or for making eyeshadows stand out more when used as a base.
Pink gold is probably my least favourite of the bunch, but that's mainly down to the fact that pink tones on my eyes are a no go. It's a baby pink shade with silver shimmer running through (probably should have been called pink silver?) It just looks a little strange against my complexion but have seem it looking lovely on some people.

All of the colour tattoo's last a long time on my eyelids with no creasing or fading. I'd say they last a full day so around 8 hours before i see some difference. I'd definitely recommend them, they're great value for money and can be used in so many ways.
