Who does not love having a pair of big, bright, and colorful eyes? And when it comes to great eyeshadows, Mac Paint Pots are a perfect choice. Being an eye makeup addict, I always wanted to try Mac Paint Pots, but the high price of those beauties always stopped me. However, as soon as I learned that Maybelline New York had launched exact Mac Paint Pot dupes as ‘Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadows’, I could not resist buying one. So today I’m going to review Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow (Pomegranate Punk). Let’s move to the review.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow comes in a tiny glass pot with a black screw lid on the top. The packaging is transparent, and the shade is visible outside the pot. The jar is thick, sturdy, and travel-friendly too. I love the packaging a lot. It is damn cute and very similar to the Mac Paint Pots.
Look And Feel
Being a cream-gel formula, the texture of the eyeshadow is pretty creamy, and it glides over the eyelids quite easily. I have tried using the eyeshadow with a shadow brush and my fingers. However, it is best applied with the fingers.
I bought this eyeshadow 1.5 months ago, and now the texture has dried a lot, and thus, blending has become a little tricky. In short, the product hardens over time, and it is not expected from a brand like Maybelline.
My Take On Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow (Pomegranate Punk)
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow by EyeStudio is available in a wide range of vibrant shades. Hence, there is absolutely no shortage of choices for eyeshadow lovers. The shade I’ll be reviewing today is Shade No. 30, named the ‘Pomegranate Punk.’
The shade is a mixture of copper and burgundy with a hint of golden shimmer. It is gorgeous, which is apt for the marriage season. Though it has shimmers, they are not very chunky. So, you can also wear it during the day for a subtle glam look. It is a highly pigmented shade, and you do not need to apply it multiple times. Just a single swipe is enough to get an intense coppery-burgundy shade on your eyelids. You can use it both as a shadow and a base.
The staying power of the Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk is fantastic! Though it claims to last for 24 hours, I’ve tried it for a maximum of 6-7 hours (after all, who wears makeup for 24 hours?). It, indeed, came out as a winner. It stays intact on my eyelids until I remove it with an eye makeup remover.
The most exciting thing about this product is that it is smudge-proof and waterproof. Moreover, it lasts longer and that too without creasing at all! Overall, I am thrilled with the shade, finish, and staying power. The only disappointment is the drying texture. However, I’m overlooking it because of the affordable price tag.

The Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow by EyeStudio is India’s most affordable professional range of eyeshadows. It is available in many shades that suit Indian skin tones perfectly. It is long-lasting, smudge-proof, waterproof, and highly pigmented. The only issue is its texture that dries up and hardens over time, due to which the blending becomes a little tricky. But I’m still in love with it and going to purchase other shades.
