This is a fantastic bright tangerine orange shade with some light shimmer throughout it. It has an opaque thick formula. Comes off more matte than shimmery.

I love these Color Tattoo shadows but I use them more as bases for my shadows than as shadows themselves.

I really like using "Fierce and Tangy" as a base under copper and brown shadows as it very nicely intensifies the pigmentation of the shadows used over it. I also like to try layering other colors, like blues and greens, over this orange base...just to see what interesting shades come out of it.

This product is great as a base...intensifies shadow pigmentation, long-lasting formula, and non-creasing. I have very oily lids and I use MAC's "Painterly" paint pot as my eyeshadow primer with these Color Tattoo products over top as my bases. They last FOREVER!!

I don't use this particular shade very often just because I like purples and blues more and so wear warmer tones less. But I would still repurchase this product when I run out. I like having it in my makeup collection as a base for the times I do decide to dip into oranges and browns and the like. Perhaps even some fuschia shades would be interesting over this color.

Definitely worth the purchase! :)

What was I thinking? Perhaps if I were enrolling in clown school this would make a good impression. First the color is garish and unflattering. Who wants shimmer in a matte product? I thought it would go on as a bronze, but it is an ugly orange on my lids. Second, the texture is pasty and hard to apply evenly, unlike other colors in this line. I tried using it as a base for an array of brown shadows with no luck.

Interesting!! Orange is definitely in the minority in my collection, other than existing as 1 powder e/s, & in my Coastal Scents Shimmer 88 & BH Neutral 88 palette(s); I admit I have to be in a peculiar state of mind frame to pull off orange, but when I am, it looks surprisingly flattering. My friend intro'd me into orange e/s when I got a Loreal HIP e/s duo (had to toss coz was so old awhile back when I did a mass cull of my collection). Orange is a fun, mostly-overlooked & underestimated e/s color. I wish that Maybelline would come out w a pale peach Color Tattoo (a la MAC Rubenesque), this is darker, "louder," more intense & just a lot different than Rubenesque, there is no comparison. I probably should wear this color more often; it's very flattering on its own with black eyeliner & a frosty champagne lipgloss along with a bit of blush. This, Pomegranate Punk, & Bold Gold are the least used Color Tattoo products in my collection (in that descending order also).

I hate to be the wet blanket but this Fierce & Tangy Color Tattoo is a mess. Maybe I just received a bad one of the batch but its awful. I found it to be very, very difficult to spread both over primer and on its own. With various brushes and my fingers I just couldn't get an even application. It was very patchy and sticky. I don't have this problem with the Rich Mahogany Color Tattoo, or my MAC Indianwood Paint Pot. It also felt heavy on my lid. I keep trying to work with it because I've read some positive reviews, but the formula is definitely a miss.

I uploaded a photo to show the single layer coverage of this product.

This is a matte orange shade. The texture of the matte Color Tattoo shades is different from the frosty ones, and is slightly more difficult to work with. However, the pigment density is amazing, and if I want a strong orange look, this works perfectly. I also like this shade as a base for any warm eye look. Once this dries it lasts all day.

I don't think this is for everybody, but for those of you who like bold matte colors, you'll love it.

I'm one of the few people that like this eyeshadow. I agree the consistency is a bit paste-like, but to remedy this I apply the color with my fingers and the warmth tends to spread the color on pretty well.

This color looks more like a golden peach on my NC45 complexion. I like this because at my age, I don't want to look like I'm going to a club. But if you want a more intensified look, Makeup Geek's Chicka-dee (pale golden orange) can be used on the lid for a matte look. I tend to use Mac's Texture at the crease with this color and if I want a subtle pow, I'll put Mac's Amber Lights on the lid. Nevertheless, worn alone Fierce & Tangy is a good day color for me.

I've used cream shadows including MAC "Paint Pots" and Loreal "H.I.P" and they worked great! so I thought this one would be a nice comparison since I have been looking for a highly pigmented coral/orange, well this Maybelline "Eye Tattoo" was very disappointing, I receved the coral/orange one as a gift from my daughter and upon using it, I was intoduced to a non-creamy, hard to apply, sheer, clumpy mess. I thought the color would be bold...NOT! Anyone have any ideas on a good coral/orange color for eyes for the spring/summer season?

I would not buy this again because - it goes on patchy and it's hard to blend.
I do like the color it's a matte with suttle orange shimmer.

Wasn't a fan of this one. This line seems to have 2 different textures/ consistancies to it. This one is a more waxy/fluid consistancy, where as Pomegranate Punk, Bad to the Bronze and some others have a slightly thicker consistancy, moreso like a cream. I prefer the creamier bases. I also didn't care for the color. Orange is not flattering on me.
