"Dare to shine 24/7.

• Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting color saturation  

• Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant"

The product is in a heavy glass jar with a black screw on lid. The sticker labels are located on the black lid and you can see the actual color of the Color Tattoos on the other side. These DOES NOT have a LIMITED EDITION shrink wrap on them so I'm unsure if these Color Tattoos will be permanent or they are limited edition. (SORRY GUYS - I wish that I had the information)

Like mostly all of Maybelline Color Tattoos, I find that 5 out of the 6 shades had the creamy and smooth consistency which made it very easy to apply to the eyelids. You can use a brush to apply but I mainly prefer my clean finger. You definitely can't go wrong with these creamy Color Tattoos since they last for a really really really long time (...I just haven't tried them for 24 hours yet).



Price - $5.79 EACH
Size - 0.14 oz

I'm so happy that Maybelline are STILL releasing Color Tattoos!!! They're absolutely one of my favorite items in my makeup collection. This is such a great inexpensive product and I hope that they continue making these forever and forever - because honestly I don't want to pay $20 for a MAC Paint Pot (...don't get me wrong, I do own a couple).

Anyways, I'm glad that they decided to make more neutral shades! I only had trouble with one of the Color Tattoos in this line and it was in the shade, Stroke of Midnight. It's a bit dry and patchy - it takes more time to blend out or to get an opaque finish. I tried using it as an eyeliner but it didn't create a clean line - trust me; it wasn't me... I used several brushes and I just couldn't get it the way I wanted it to be.

Sleek & Spice on the lids with Stroke of Midnight as my eyeliner.

See how the eyeliner looks patchy up close?! Yeah, not cute...

I'm gonna try to use Stroke of Midnight as a base tomorrow with Laura Mercier Black Karat on top and we'll see what happens - fingers crossed that it will look absolutely GORGEOUS.

Excuse me for not filling in my eyebrows =X I used Stroke of Midnight as the base and Laura Mercier's Black Karat. Honestly, I don't think that I'll use Stroke of Midnight as much since I had to do a lot of blending and slight pressure to get it look decent.

And this is why I absolutely LOVE Maybelline's Color Tattoos...
A quick swipe on the eyelids, some blending, and you're good to go if you're in a rush!

So what are you guys waiting for?! Go pick some up NOW!!

These are the closest dupes possible that I found with the other Color Tattoos; the other shades in this specific set - Beige-ing Beauty, Caramel Cool, and Stroke of Midnight - are unique so there aren't any close dupes. Enjoy! <3 font="">
