Maybelline Color Tattoo Review + Swatches

I'm sure you've already heard about Maybelline's Color Tattoo's but I thought I'd share my thoughts on them too! The shades I have to talk about today are '40 - Permanent Taupe' and '65 - Pink Gold'.
I'd never dabbled with gel/cream eye shadows before so this was a completely new concept to me. & I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. They are extremely long wearing (without the help of an eyeshadow primer) and can be 'built up' to create more intense look. 
They are also brilliant at multitasking - when I say that what I mean is they can be used alone swept across the lid, as a base and even as a liner. The texture is really smooth and creamy (which is a dream for lazy days when you just want a wash of colour) and can be easily applied with your finger tips and/or brushes. I tend to just use my finger tips to smooth it over the lid, but it does blend out nicely with the use of a fluffy blending brush too!

I also LOVE the packaging. It's very sturdy and looks way more expensive than it actually is. The best thing about this range? They are very affordable and easily available. They retail at around £5 (but are often on 3 for 2 offers in Boots so keep an eye out!). Bargain.

Have you tried the Maybelline Color Tattoo range? What are your thoughts?
