Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in Tough As Taupe

I recently purchased my first ever Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Cream Gel Eyeshadow and I am simply impressed and bummed out that I didn't give these a try years ago! The shade I have is #35 Tough As Taupe, and it is a beautiful gray color, which can be build-able to a deeper gray.

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.

I find that when I wear the color tattoos alone, it begins to crease after about 8 hours, but if I use these as sort of like a base or primer and top it off with powdered shadows then it pretty much lasts over 12 hours without creasing. FYI, I have not tested these out for 24 hours...I  mean really who wears makeup for 24 hours? Nonetheless, I do love this product and love how it looks alone and even as a base. As seen below in the swatches, the eyeshadow is intensified when applied over the color tattoo.

I do apply the color tattoos with my fingers because I feel like I can control the amount of product I apply a lot better, and to me it applies more evenly and smoother with my fingers. Also, the finish seems to be matte, but a little bit of sheen can be seen depending on the lighting, which I love and it is why I picked this particular color up, since most of their other ones are metallic. Currently on the Maybelline website, they have 10 total colors, I know in the past they've had limited edition ones, and who knows maybe in the near future they will come out with more!

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?
