Oh these Maybelline Color Tattoos!! I have such a love/hate relationship with these, and this color is no exception.

The color is nice, there is no denying that. I think almost any skin tone can wear this. Super-versatile in that regard. Goes with just about everything.

But the performance..ugh..
This is okay if I am just running errands or going out to lunch or coffee with friends but I find this wears off in a couple of hours, and at best it creases horribly on me (depending on the day and the humidity, we tend to have a lot of humidity where I live). I have even used different eye primers with this, and just as bad results. After a couple of hours I usually have just a very faint trace, sometimes in my inner corner, sometimes in the middle of my lid (both eyes always wear off unevenly, so that makes it look all the worse).

I will say I have not had any issues with this drying out in the pan itself, like some have.

All in all I would wear this if I know I am only going to be out and about for an hour or so.
Definitely would not wear nor recommend this for all-day or a work day. Just (IME) wears off way too fast and wears unevenly.

This is such a brilliant product!!!!! I have normal/dry skin but my eyelids alone get VERY oily and when I wear this product it is not affected. It is very easy to blend and my favourite way to wear this product is either simply all over my lid and blended out into my crease on a lazy day OR I apply this only on the outer corner of my eye and then use a matte brown shade (buck from the naked 1 palette) through my crease and over the color tattoo which looks amazing. This product is easy to blend BUT once this product is dry it does not budge. Literally. I've swatched many of the color tattoo shades in Boots before on my hand and washed my hands throughout the day and the colour is still there. It's crazy! My eyes will always look the same at the end of the day with this product. There is no need for an eyeshadow primer. Although it is a technically just a cream eyeshadow, it does the priming trick.

I have no joke about 15 Color Tattoo's and there's a good reason why. I don't believe that these are dupes for MAC paint pots because MAC PP's are more so eye primers and I feel like Maybelline Color Tattoo's are truly cream eyeshadows. These are beautiful alone or paired with other Color Tattoo's and/or other reg eyeshadows. They are very blendable and I feel like this color is gorgeous on tan skin or with blue/green eyes. This is perfect for days you're in a rush or days you simply just don't feel like dealing with 10 diff eyeshadows. These are thick in consistency but once they are applied they are very thin and not heavy at all. It's easy to blend these with other colors in the Color Tattoo line but once they dry they don't budge. No seriously. Tattoo is the perfect description for the longevity of these. I live in Seattle and it is terribly humid and hot and although I don't have oily lids, in the heat my eyeshadow tends to crease. Not with this! I could jump in a pool and this would stay put - it's actually kind of difficult to remove even with a make up wipe. In my opinion these give the beautiful effect of a pigment without all the fallout - it's just not as intense. This color looks very pretty in the sun and I think this color is universally flattering and a good CT to try out for the first time.

I am in the minority here, but I just hate this color on me. I feel like it should work and other people with my similar coloring (NC 20/25, dark eyes and hair) seem to love it, but I just don't like it. I think it's too metallic for me, and just I don't know- off somehow. I think I would like it more if it were more taupe or more red toned. I just don't think it's flattering on my. As far as quality of the product, I do find this one to be less smooth and blendable than the other color tattoos I have, but it's not so much less so that it's unworkable. I feel like these also last a long time before they dry up, significantly longer than MAC paint pots. I do have to wear a primer under all the color tattoos, but I think that's because I have super oily eyelids, I think the average person could wear this on its own.

this is amazing ! on lazy days I would apply this on my lid and blend it out on the crease , only takes a few minutes and looks absolutely beautiful . All you need is a few coats of mascara and your look is complete plus it's so affordable !

Love this! A great shade- similar to Mac's Indianwood, and a very close dupe for my By Terry ombre blackstar in bronze moon. Creamy consistency, easy to blend when it's freshly applied, and then BAM, it's set for hours and hours.

Absolutely love this product!! Such good quality for the price, an amazing product for wearing under eye shadows to really bring out the colour,extremely wearable on it's own and on days wear I'm feeling lazy I will just sweep this all over the lid with my Mac 217. This product is not chunky at all and is extremely blenadble and durable. I would definitely recommend it to everyone especially as it is so cheap :-)

Absolutely beautiful colour and I love the consistency.
These eyeshadows are great as bases, but On and On Bronze is just as gorgeous on its own. It's the first colour I have from this range, but it makes me want to go out and buy more colours because it really is just a beautiful, beautiful eyeshadow.

Cool-toned, somewhat frosty golden taupe with a drier, thicker texture than some other cream shadows. Works well for both day and night, and has decent lasting power.
Unlike Tough as Taupe from this line, which doesn't do much for me on its own, it works well alone as well as as a base for powder shadows.

The only problem is that it sometimes dries to a papery or cracked look that's ageing on the lids if applied more thickly. Otherwise, a solid drugstore product.

To keep it simple, this eyeshadow is a must staple for everyone's collection. You can use it as a single shade all over the lid and it looks beautiful. It lasts all day. I like to use it as a base to intensify my eyeshadow. Try it under gold and brown eyeshadows - amazing!

Only thing to remember is to blend it out quickly. It sets super fast.
