Maybelline Color Tattoo: Tough as Taupe and Bad To The Bronze

Maybelline Colour Tattoo: Tough as Taupe and Bad To The Bronze

 

Like most drugstore crazes, I’ve come very late to the party with these Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows. It was only when I saw James Kaliardos work his magic with the Color Tattoo ‘Tough As Taupe’ backstage at Richard Chai Fall/Winter NYFW 2013 that I really paid any attention to these products. I picked up a couple from Priceline, and fell immediately in love.

Colour

Tough as Taupe is a neutral concrete-grey taupe that has a little bit of runway edginess to it. It has medium but buildable pigmentation.

Bad to the Bronze on my eyelids is more of a neutral shimmery fawn/tan than a bronze. It is amazing as a sheer wash or in a smoky eye. Can be blended out sheer or layered for a fairly intense metallic finish.

Texture and Performance

Surprisingly these are probably comparable (if not better) formulated than the MAC Paint Pots in my opinion. They are VERY crease resistant and long wearing on my oily lids, and the product is creamy and blendable- Bad To The Bronze more blendable than Tough as Taupe, which is to be expected since the latter is a matte.

I’m very interested to see how they stand up to the test of time- I found that after about 6 months my Paint Pots (particularly the matte finish ones) have dried up considerably.
