My Experience with Maybelline Color Tattoo:

The Maybelline Color Tattoos have a very pretty packaging. It comes in a glass jar with a plastic cap. I also got a free flat eye shadow brush with the purchase. The brush is pretty decent. But i find it easy to work with my fingers as it gives a better blended out look. These are said to be affordable dupes for MAC paint pots which is great as these are available at a very negligible price when compared to MAC :)

The pigmentation is superb. One swipe gives the color required.You may also go ahead and build up the color as per your requirement. The texture is creamy and and glides well on the lids.It does not go patchy at all. It needs to be worked out quickly as it dries pretty fast. And once it dries it stays on forever until you remove it with a make up remover. It is completely water proof. The staying power is awesome. I have tried for a maximum of 8 hours with this and it stayed well with just a minor fading in the crease.

The brush!

The shade Pomegranate Punk is beautiful burgundy shade with brown under tones and golden shimmers in it. It looks gorgeous on Indian skin tones.The shimmers are not at all gritty but just adds the beauty to it! its a total love for me. The shade can be just worn alone all over the lid or as gorgeous smoky look can be achieved by adding some black, deep blue or a purple shade in the crease and outer corners.

I cant think of any cons except one thing with this shade, the eye shadows can only be layered on top but cannot be blended into each other. Something i could overlook because usually when i use this i go easy with the eye make up as the shade looks beautiful as it is and try to avoid major blending works. :D


This is how it looks on me:

Overall i love this one and look forward to get more shades. Totally recommended!
