Maybelline are usually pretty good with their new releases. They’re mascaras are all pretty fantastic, and it’s almost a sure bet that you’ll get something decent from the Maybelline stand in your local Boots, Superdrug or supermarket. The recent Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows are available all over the place, and often on offer (3 for 2’s) which make these a superb budget beauty buy.
I bought two of the new shades released in the UK. I have Eternal Gold (above), and On and On Bronze (below). Both work really well to compliment each other. There’s been lots of hype surrounding these products, and I’ve had them in my makeup box for a while but only recently managed to give them a full test on how wearable they are.
Eternal Gold is a beautiful gold cream, and On and On Bronze (above) is a dark, rich copper. The product is creamy and soft, and doesn’t remain wet for long after application. They’re easy to blend, especially as they’re shimmery colours. You can use your fingers or brushes to apply them, and build up colour.
The staying power of these is phenomenal. A good 8 hours. Any longer and I’d have been sleeping in them. They remained true to colour, without fading or creasing. And that’s without a primer. I would imagine they could last much longer if you needed them too.
Overall I really like this range of affordable, long-lasting cream eyeshadows. The formula and price makes these a winner.
