Maybelline is one of my favorite brands because they provide the best products at affordable prices. Maybelline is also famous for making exact Mac dupes. Today I’m going to review Maybelline color tattoo eye shadow in pomegranate punk which is a dupe of Mac Paint Pots. I always wanted to try Mac Paint Pots but the high price has always stopped me but as soon as I knew that Maybelline has launched something similar, I couldn’t resist myself from purchasing these color tattoos. Let’s move to the review.
Price: Rs. 350 for 4 grams
Product Description: Funky eye shadow colors from Maybelline for the punk princess – add an edgy dimension to a monochrome outfit with Maybelline’s Color Tattoo by Eye studio. With its 24 hour stay power, you’ll be rocking the eye make-up long after the party’s over!
My take on Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow-Pomegranate Punk:
Maybelline color tattoo eye shadow comes in a sturdy thick glass pot and it has a screw on black lid on top. The packaging is transparent and the shade is visible from the pot. The jar is thick, sturdy and travel friendly too. I love the packaging a lot, it’s damn cute and very similar to Mac paint pots.
The shade I’ll be reviewing today is “pomegranate punk” which is a mixture of copper burgundy shade with hints of golden shimmer in it. The shade is very pretty and it’s apt for the marriage season. The shade has shimmers but they are not very chunky so you can also wear it during day which is a plus point.
The texture of the eye shadow is creamy and it blends easily. I have tried using the eye shadow with eye shadow brush and with my fingers too, I think its best applied with fingers only. I bought this eye shadow 1.5 months ago and now the texture has dried a lot and thus blending becomes little difficult. So, the texture hardens with time which is the biggest con for me.
The shade is highly pigmented and one swipe is enough to get intense coppery burgundy shade on eyes. You can use it as eye shadow and you can also use it as a base. The staying power is awesome and it stays on my eyes till I remove it with makeup remover. It claims to stay for 2 hours but I’ve tried it for 6-7 hours (who wears makeup for 24 hours?). It stays for long that too without creasing at all. The texture is smudge-proof and waterproof. Overall, I am very happy with the shade, finish and staying power. The only disappointment is the drying texture but I’m overlooking it because of the affordable price tag.
- Affordable when compared with other high-end brands
- Flattering shade and it’ll suit all skin tones
- Stays until removed with a remover
- Doesn’t budge or crease
- Shimmers don’t look over-the-top
- Smudge proof and water proof
- Texture hardens with time due to drying
Final Verdict: The eye shadow is very affordable and it’s available in many shades. It’s long lasting, smudge proof and pigmented, the only issue is the dry texture. The texture dries after one month…….it hardens due to which blending becomes difficult. BUT I’m still going to purchase other shades. 🙂
