Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk || Review & Swatches

Hi Everyone!!

If you read my Maybelline Haul (click HERE to read that blog post) you would know that I bought Maybelline Color Tattoo in the color Pomegranate Punk. I have used color tattoos before in the color Bad to the Bronze and Inked in Pink. I was not impressed with the products as I found them to be too frosty. Frost clashes with my skin tone and makes me look dull. Nonetheless I always wanted to try the color Pomegranate Punk as it seemed like it would not have too much frost. So I went with my gut and without referring to any review I bought the product at sale and that is what I will be reviewing today.

What I think about the product:

Maybelline color tattoos are cream gel shadows which claim to have 24hr wear. The first thing I want to get out of the way is that the 24hr hour claim is for the most part is not true! But it definitely wears for a long time. The shadow starts to crease after about 4hrs on a normal day without primer underneath or shadow over it. But the best part about this particular shade is that creasing is not very apparent, at least it is not on my eyelids. I have medium skin tone and my eyelids have natural darkness to them which if I am not wrong most medium to dark skin colored girls have. Since this color is a dark plum color, when it creases, my lid color gets camouflaged with the color of the shadow and I can get away with creased shadow for a few more hours. 

The color is a rich plumy burgundy color and has amazing color pay-off. The pigmentation is highly saturated. The formula is creamy but not as creamy as MAC paint pots. Also the Color Tattoos have a tendency to loose its creamy texture after a year or so (but can be partially revived to its formal glory by putting the pot in microwave for a few seconds). This cream shadow is not at all frosty. The formula is very easy to work with. It applies and blend easily with fingers. The shimmer is very fine and gives the color almost a duo-chromatic effect.

Want to know how much I love this product? I took 4 eye shadow palettes and this cream shadow for my eye lids for my Caribbean vacation and I only wore this product on my eyelids during the entire 12 day trip. Although it was very hot and humid, it survived the weather and I still had color on my eyelids at the end of the day. I love the fact that this color would look great on most women and would be an everyday color for many women. I adore this product and highly recommend it.
