Maybelline does classify these color tattoos as cream gel shadows but the consistency is a lot thicker than any cream or gel shadows that I own. I actually prefer the thickness of these shadows because I find that it allows powdered shadows to stick on better for a deeper and long lasting color intensity. I do wear these color tattoos alone but do prefer to top them off with powdered shadows, to increase the longevity of the wear.
These generally retail for around $6.99, I purchased mine from Ulta when they had their 40% off sale, so I got this baby for a super affordable price! Currently these color tattoos are Buy One Get One 50% off at Ulta so if you're interested I suggest you check out the sale! Have you tried any of the Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Cream Gel Eye-shadows? Which colors and finish do you love the most?
