I purchased this shade in the color tattoo line a few days ago and absolutely love it.
It is not a color I would usually pick but I thought it would be a nice color change for the cooler weather.
It can be put on heavy or sheared out, doesn't budge, easy use container and doesn't feel to heavy once dry.
My only fault is that they could do with being a bit cheaper her in Australia.
Never thought of buying this colour. I was scared of looking like I had woken up with allergies if I put anything red near my eyelids but this colour works. For reference I am on the paler side of NC25, Asian skintone. This colour is extremely sexy! I have never described a colour that way before... But wow!!!! Opaque for a smokey eye out for the night? This colour will be your best friend. Sheer it out on your eyelids for daytime use if you like.
Personally, I like wearing Bad to the Bronze as a base, and quickly before BTTB dries, I put some of Pomegrante Punk ontop! A rich mahongany brown is achieved.
I can't fault the packaging or formulation.
I will say that, I know all shadows tend to firm/harden up after a while. To fix that, take off the lid, put the product into a container and fill it up with BOILING HOT WATER... right to the brim of the product's glass! But not submerging the whole product.
Close the container with a lid or pop a bowl or something ontop. Let steam work its magic :) This way you're not adding saline.. or anything into the product changing the formulation. Once you've left it for about 10-15 mins, remove it from the boiling water...
You product should be extremely soft. Smoothen the surface out (it should feel spongey). Pop the lid back on and let it cool.
:) The next day, it will be good as new.
One of my favorite color tattoos. Goes on beautifully and can be worn as a light pinkish wash or heavily as a deep plum-maroon. I added a warm brown (MAC swiss chocolate) to the crease, and lightly tapped some shimmery gold color on lid center, and it looked gorgeous.
If it helps at all, I have a demonstration of how I apply it while I talk about how I like it (split-screen style) on Youtube. Search wjmalique and MAC Drugstore Haul :)
If it were more burgundy-purple and less glittery, I'd rate it higher. No fall out , blends easily enough, lasts all day.
I absolutely LOVE this product! I love the color-it's a punch of brightness that does not come across as too much as the same time. Perfect to wear at work- I have worn this alone on my lid and with CT "inked in pink" as well. I use a primer and this lasts ALL day and I do mean ALL day. I don't wear makeup for 24 hours, so I have no idea if it lives up to its name or not, but it does for at least 16-18 hours.
I like pomegranate punk. It's inexpensive, creamy, stays in place and flatters my green eyes.
I looks more brown than burgundy, though and you have to pay attention to what colors you pair it with in order not to look tired.
I love the Maybelline Color Tattoos in general. They're creamy, long lasting, don't smudge, make colors pop, etc. But THIS color in particular is an absolute favorite. I'm pretty "shy" with my eyeshadows and usually stick to neutrals, browns and taupes. But I'm so glad I gave this a try. I apply it lightly all over my lid, concentrating a little more in the the crease to get a deeper color. I smudge it underneath my eyes and apply lots of mascara. It's a warm plummy color and it makes the green in my eyes pop. It's smokier than my usual looks but it looks effortless (and it is). It also makes a nice base, it adds warmth and depth to otherwise "boring" colors.
Finally jumped on the Colour Tattoo band-wagon! I only bought it because there was a massive sale; ordinarily in Australia they're too expensive for my liking. So it was about $7-8. I think it's going to last ages. So easy to apply- i just used my finger! I couldn't believe the longevity of it. I never thought a cream product would last so long! It did crease slightly but as long as i 'pat' over the lid once or twice a day it's fine, and i usually have to do this with my powder shadows anyway. Gorgeous plummy colour which by the looks of it can be applied heavily or sparingly for a nice subtle look. Bought it last night, wore it today and am in love!
Oooooh, peeerrty! This is so versatile, long-lasting and easy! The color is amazing, it layers from a sheer, soft dusty pink to a heavier, redder pomegranate (duh). I was worried about the whole red-eyeshadow-thing, but I needn't have. It's wonderful, and it looks wonderful on me. I apply it with my fingers all over lid and up along my socket line in a parable shate, and if I can do that, anyone can...
I bought this because I heard it was a dupe for MAC Artifact. It's not as red as I had hoped, but nevertheless the colour is still amazing.
