High pigmentation... Long lasting... You really can't go wrong with Maybelline's range of Color Tattoo Gel-Cream eye shadows. You need the tiniest amount and they stay put once you've blended them out. If I'm in a rush, I'll blend it over my lid, smudge some black gel eye liner on my lash line, and with a coat or two of black mascara I'm good to go.
These make great stand-alone eye shadows, or you can use them as a gel base for a layered look. They have all the blendability of a cream shadow but with the staying power of a gel and that's a winning combination for me! The colours range from bold turquoise and purple, through metallic golds and bronzes, and on to pale shimmers and a deep, dark, matte black.
The penny short of a fiver price tag is a winner too, and it wouldn't take you long or hurt your pocket to build up the whole collection. The purple is the only minor disappointment with a much more crumbly texture that doesn't seem to blend as well as the others, but the rest of the shadows really are a dream to apply.
In terms of the colour range, they do differ depending on which side of the pond you're from - for example, we have a purple, where the US has more of an aubergine. They also have a new metal range that I'm hoping reaches us soon! All in all top marks from me - Superdrug currently have 3 for 2 offer on all their Maybelline products so grab yourself an added bargain!
