The Easiest Eyeshadows Available♥

Eyeshadow can often take ages. Sometimes when I'm doing my makeup, it takes me the longest because of all the different colours to choose from and all the blending (blending is key!). However, I have days where I don't have enough time to do my eyeshadow or I can't be bothered and want something simple. When this occurs, I reach for my Maybelline Colour Tattoos.

Aren't they so pretty? The colour tattoos are pots of cream eyeshadows. The range is huge, and are affordable too (£4.99 each but often on a 3 for 2 deal). I find the packaging to be sleek, and well suited for the product itself. The consistency of these cream eyeshadows are creamy and blend so smoothly, as well as majorly pigmented! Also, they're apparently dupes for Mac paintpots, and are a fraction of the price.

My personal preference for eyeshadow is usually golds, browns or bronze, so the three I own are along those lines. The top left shade is from the original collection, and the other two are from the leather effect collection. Unlike with cream products, I haven't found that these dry out, which is a bonus.

Creamy Beige was the first of the leather effect collection that I tried. I instantly loved the colour when I originally saw it on Instagram, so knew I had to go out and buy it for myself. As you can see, I'm a big fan of this product - it's gorgeous! If I'm wanting a light base for my eyeshadow to go on top or just for a wash of colour, I tend to reach for this as I adore the colour.

On and On Bronze ("Bad To The Bronze" in America) was the first colour tattoo I bought. It goes with almost every look and always looks flawless. Paired with winged liner, this is my favourite look to wear at the moment! All I do is sweep some on with my finger and blend out any harsh lines with a blending brush, so easy!

Chocolate Suede is the last of the three I have. It's a deep, dark, chocolate brown colour with a hint of glitter through it. This colour makes me think of chocolate and feel as though that's how they created it and the name. It's ideal for darker and smokier looks, although, it can be toned down if required.

With one sweep across the lid, these are potentially the easiest yet greatest cream eyeshadows you will find in the drugstore!

Do you own any of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos? Aren't they just so easy to use?

  1. Lovely post:) I own 4 of the Maybelline colour tattoos, On and On Bronze, Permanant Taupe, Eternal Gold and Pink Gold ( very similar to ByTerry Ombre Blackstar) I really like these however I do prefer Mac paint pots because I find them to crease less on my eyelids:) thanks for sharing lovely xxx

  2. I love On and On Bronze! Such a pretty colour! I have Creamy Beige too but I never really got on with it, I find it a little too warm toned on me! Need to check out Chocolate Suede!

  4. The Colour Tattoos are for sure my favourite drugstore eyeshadows. They're so pigmented and long lasting! I tend to wear them just on their own if I'm having a bit of a slow day and can't be bothered blending about 4 different colours on my eyelid xx

  14. I love these. I have 3. One in creamy beige, one in tough as taupe, and I also have the black one (not sure what the shade name is). Until today, I hadn't used these for awhile. I'm trying to use more of what's in my stash as I usually gravitate towards the same items. I really love these, so good for when you are in a hurry. Plus you get a ton in the containers.

  24. I own a lot of them and like them a lot. I wish they would bring back the pink/beige LE Tattoo that came out a couple of years ago. It was my favorite everyday shadow and it made a great base. Unfortunately, it dried out and I had to toss it.
