The Maybelline Color Tattoos are one of my favourite cream eyeshadow ranges, and I’m steadily increasing my collection. (I’ve reviewed Tough as Taupe, Bad to the Bronze, Bold Gold, and Pomegranate Punk)
Barely Branded and Silver Strike are part of their new(ish) Color Tattoo Metal collection, and I was pretty keen to try these after reading rave blog reviews. They did not let me down- holy cow the formula is good. As good as, if not better, than many higher end cream shadows that I’ve tried.

After trying the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe earlier in the year, they quickly became one of my most reached for cream eyeshadows because of their great formula and gorgeous colours. It was only a matter of time before I was looking for my next Color Tattoo purchase, and I ended up picking Pomegranate Punk (to dupe my shrivelled old MAC Artifact Paint Pot), and Bold Gold at the Priceline sale.
Pomegranate punk is a metallic burgundy with fine silver shimmer. It’s a sheerer, cooler toned version of MAC’s discontinued Artifact Paint Pot. It needs about 2-3 layers to get good coverage and pigmentation.
Bold Gold is a sheer neutral metallic gold base with fine gold microshimmer. I was really hoping that it would look more like molten gold on my lids, but it’s more like a sheer layer of shimmer than a molten metallic effect- I prefer it as a base colour than used on it’s own. More on that further down.
Both Pomegranate Punk and Bold Gold are sheerer than my first two Color Tattoo purchases.
