I just recently discovered the 24 hour Maybelline Color Tattoos & I am in love. I have a few paint pots by MAC and noticed that Bare Study by MAC was similar to Maybelline’s Barely Branded. I liked Maybelline’s color better bc it was less shimmery and much easier to apply without creasing. I hardly use MAC’s Paint pots anymore bc I find them to be a bit greasy. I personally think Maybelline’s color tattoos are much better & better yet affordable. MAC’s paint pots go for $20 & Maybelline’s Color Tattoos go for $5-$7 depending where you buy them. What do you think?
These are super awesome! I love the smooth texture of these and they seriously do last 24 hours! They are very pigmented. The only thing I don't like us the shades. There are only two neutrals and all are shimmery. I would be so happy if they made one like painterly from Mac.
It's Okay But Not That Unique
I read tons of reviews of these babies and I thought they would be amazing. Maybe I just had super high hopes, but I definitely was let down when I bought it and tried it. First off, the too cool color isn't that unique. If you're wanting a base to make your colors "pop," I'd go with the NYX milk color. They dry out pretty easily too. They crease and need a primer to stay on. Guess for the price they weren't too bad, but I am not going to be buying anymore anytime in the future.
old school chic. it stays long, it is easy to apply, easy to take off.. it is even an amazing eye shadow base! the color is suitable for all skin types and all eye colors, ot never looks inappropriate or exaggerate. It looks good in the summer with a tan or in the winter with a pale face. total must-have!
Cheap, amazing and FLAWLESS!
These little pots are amazing! They are easy to blend and pigment like crazy, they stay on all day and don't crease. Really the only flaw is that boots doesn't have every colour! I really really recommend this product it's just as good as the MAC eye shadow pot things. Plus it's under £5 so go on try them!
these are fabulous. I have a whole bunch of them an they are wonderful as a base or alone if you're in a rush but want some color. they make eyeshadows stand out more and you'll get to see their true color. more opaque. I use the white one a lot more than the others but the colored ones under a similar color is just great. also a reasonable price. :) I want more, and I want some of their pigments!! :)
I am in love with this product. I have it in Bad To The Bronze and Silver Strike, both of which I use very often. The pigments are great, and the color is just as vibrant at the end of the day as it was when I put it on. You also don't need much to cover the your lid, so it lasts longer. Great product!
bad to the bronze, bold gold, pomegranate pink, tough as taupe. electric blue, inked in pink, barely branded
I have this product in six or seven shades, it's great. long lasting, easy to apply, looks beautiful, nice selection of colors in various finishes. pigmentation is great and texture varies slightly depending on the shade. body heat from the fingers and lid warm the product and help a little when applying. I find the best way to use this is with your fingers. that's the one significant drawback about this product, it's pretty difficult to use with a brush since it's so thick and dries out quickly(some shades are quicker to dry than others) so the only way I can really use it is with my fingers. I don't mind at all because this thing will last all day and not budge. absolutely no smudging and color stays vibrant until it's washed off. versatile, useable as a base or primer as well. you could get really creative with these.
Only good for a few days
I was so obsessed with these for a while, but now? Not so much. More like not at all. These aren't exactly the brightest, most vibrant cream shadows I've ever used, which in itself isn't a huge issue, but the commercial seems like you're buying a little pot of neon paint. My biggest gripe about these is actually that they dry out, and they dry out BAD. Fierce and Tangy was by far one of my favorites because once it was on, it really wasn't that bright, but it was amazing to layer under warm-toned powder shadows that were a bit too light. After a couple of weeks they were absolutely too dry to use. I don't know why I haven't chucked all of mine yet, maybe I'm holding out in case something can fix them, but for now they're just gathering dust.
