Maybelline 24 hr Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze

I'd seen the Color Tattoos floating around on other blogs and so the other day decided to pick one up to see what I thought, I chose the colour On and On Bronze.
(the berries seemed pretty fitting for the weather recently, even though its nearly April!)

Im usually not a bit fan of cream eyeshadows- I have oily uneven lids that need a good layer of foundation to even out and then a base powder to stop my eyeshadows moving or creasing so I was interested to see whether this little pot of shimmery brown would live up to its 24 hour no creasing hype. Im very pleased to say that it does, even just on top of foundation it's going no where and there hasnt been a crease in sight!
The colour is a bronzey brown with silver shimmer that can be used sheer or built up to be more intense. Its quite a bit more frosty in person than in photos which I wasnt expecting and I tend to go for wamer colours with a gold instead of silver shimmer, but I do like the colour and have got a lot of wear out of it so far.
It blends easily even with my finger and doesnt set too fast so can be reblended if need be or shadow can be applied before it dries so help it stick better. I wear this colour alone during the day and at night layer it with wamer and darker colours for a bit of definition. This gel-cream eyeshadow usually lasts all day or night on me, I have slept in it and while it didnt look quite the same as before I went to bed, it was still there in the morning which is quite impressive.
These shadows are available for £4.99 and come in a good shade range however I tend to stick to neutrals and pinks so while the brighter colours do appeal to me, Id rather look at them in the pot than put them on my eyes. Two shades Ive fallen in love with (Too Cool and Pomegranate Punk) are only available in the States which is a bit of a disappointment, but I think my next purchase will definitely be the slightly warmer Eternal Gold.

Dont laugh at my posey face! 24 hr Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze shaded with St Moriz Bronzing Powder and shimmery black from Bourjois Effets Lumiere Trio in Les Argents (close up taken before blending). Photos taken on Iphone 4s with flash.

  1. I wore this today! Looks lovely on you and the pictures turned out great :) I'd recommend the permanent taupe colour tattoo aswell, it's matte and works as the perfect base for loads of looks - they last so long! Great post xxx

    1. Aw thank you :) I took some today for a cheek tint post and think I might have to crop them right down to the cheeks haha. The permanent taupe might be a better choice than the white one I was looking at actually, thanks for the suggestion, will have a look next time Im in town x

  5. I love these! I have the silver/white one and use it as a "primer" for shadow. Works so well to keep it all together!
