Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadows - Review and Swatches

January 12, 2012

Seems like everyone is trying to get their hands on these new Maybelline cream gel shadows, obviously myself included. I couldn't find as many as I wanted to but I did get the colors I originally was looking for. I actually only had bought Tough as Taupe, but I couldn't resist getting more when I went to CVS. Let's see swatches and my review. 

Audacious Asphalt, Bold Gold, and Tough as Taupe.
These are described as:
- Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow.
- Our ink technology creates super-saturated color.
- Cream gel smooths on for vibrant color that does not fade. 

I really enjoy these and the colors that I ended up buying. Tough as Taupe is one that I have been wearing on a daily basis. They are pretty long wearing, I was able to go from morning to night when I took my makeup off with no creasing. They don not smudge at all, I tried rubbing it off a bit with my fingers but nothing. I think for being a drugstore product and the price, they are definitely worth it. 
I'm hoping that in the future they will make more colors, since there are only 10 shades. I feel like they could make way more of a selection. Other than that, they are great, long lasting, and smudge proof.

Have you tried these? Let me know what colors you picked up!
