I purchased 15 Endless Purple, 20 Turquoise Forever, 40 Permanent Taupe and 45 Infinite White (the names are different in Germany). 20 Turquoise Forever is by far the most vibrant of all the shades I bought. It's an absolutely gorgeous shimmery colour with a satin sheen to it. 15 Endless Purple and 40 Permanent Taupe are both matte colours, while 45 Infinite White is similar in finish to 20 Turquoise Forever in that it has a slight satin sheen to it, but it's not shimmery. The Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadows look pretty good by themselves, but they look so beautiful when powder eyeshadows are layered on top. It really makes the colour pop and gives the colour much more depth and opacity.
The Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadows are extremely waterproof once completely dry.
Although slightly expensive for a drugstore brand, I think you will be hard pressed to find a product of the same quality at EUR7.25 apiece. The Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadows come in a range of eye catching shades and are waterproof. The lasting power isn't as good as the claims suggest, but if you use an eyeshadow primer underneath the cream gel shadow you shouldn't have a problem. Even though 15 Endless Purple does not build up and blend very well, I love the shade so much that I don't regret buying it. The only shade I regret buying is 45 Infinite White as the colour is relatively sheer. The advertising suggests that the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadows are designed to be worn alone, but I think they work best as bases to really make the powder eyeshadows pop. All in all, a great product for the price! I give it a thumbs up!

These are average for me. The concept is awesome. Just a quick cream product you can swipe on your lids with your finger and go. However the staying power is lacking. I know people say these can be dupes for Mac paint pots, and they can in a way but the staying power of the two are not identical. Today i wore my Color tattoo in barely branded on one eye and my paint pot in bare study on the other. After some hours the eye with the color tattoo creased badly and had faded quite a bit but the eye with the paint pot only creased a bit and "gracefully" faded. There was still a good amount left on my lid. I haven't found any eyeshadow (powder or cream) that I don't need to wear a primer with but I still want the shadow with the best staying power. Compared to other cream shadows these are harder in texture and a little harder to apply/blend. Good packaging. Affordable. Easy to get your hands on. Good color range but could use more mattes/neutrals. Btw I have these in tough as taupe, barely branded, and tenacious teal.

I have these in 6 shades. They are long lasting, have good pigmented buildable color, do not crease, and are versatile, that is why I am slowly purchasing every color! So far my favorite is the Bronze, slightly shimmery which makes my eyes pop, the color is very neutral, I can use purple, brown, raisin, or gold toned shadows and eyeliners with it. Most often though I just wear it alone with eyeliner and put an extra layer of it on the crease of my eye and thats it! I can also use the teal and purple color tattoo along my lash line with this if Im going out. The teal and purple are vibrant colors but I only use them on my lash lines and not on my entire eyelid. I did notice that the purple takes on a blue hue when used on the entire eyelid, which is not what I like. The gold, taupe, and grey are ok, but I find myself using the bronze more often. I found using my finger to apply is the best way to get even coverage. I will repurchase when I run out.

All I have to say is wow. I'm very finnicky with what makeup I buy. I'm very skeptical. So when I went to the wal-mart makeup section and this promised 24 hours, I was like ya right. I first bought "painted purple" and I haven't had streaking problems like everyone else. However, I find the painted purple fades after a while (I have allergies and I'm an eye rubber) but other than that no complaints. I bought my second one, "audacious asphalt" yesterday, and I put it on for work at 7 am this morning. It is now 5:45 pm and it hasn't budged. I like this ones texture better, and it's like a smoky eye in a jar. I totally judge products by their packaging and I do like the maybelline color tattoo packaging. It looks designer and is very pretty and durable. I want to collect them all! Next stop ORANGE!

I have the color tattoos in Tough as Taupe and Bad to the Bronze. I love and rave about these cream eye shadows because they're seriously awesome.
PRICE: They're dirt cheap. I got them for $6 each at a Target, but you can buy them during a BOGO 50% off sale at a drugstore like Rite Aid, etc, and that's really a steal.
TEXTURE: Very creamy and easy to blend, although I have to say that the Tough as Taupe shade requires a bit more work, but it still blends in beautifully.
PIGMENTATION: These shadows are extremely pigmented. You can either blend them out for a sheer wash of the color over your lids, or you can build it up for even bolder color.
PACKAGING: People complain about the unhygienic jar packaging, but I don't mind it. As long as you thoroughly clean your hands before application, it should be fine. You can definitely use a brush to apply the eye shadow if it bothers you, but I feel that using your finger will apply the product much, much smoother and blending it will be a lot easier.
LONGEVITY: These last for a REALLY long time. No joke. They will stay on your lids. By the end of a long 12 hr school day, I noticed that there was minimal creasing (but nothing so noticeable that someone would point out) and that the color faded just a tad bit. I was a daredevil and decided to hop in the shower with it and when I came out, the eye shadow STILL didn't budge. Amazing, I say.
Would I repurchase? DEFINITELY. I recommend everyone to buy one! It's great for everyday on-the-go use, but you can also use it for special occasions. Use it as a base or by itself, this stuff is AMAZING.

I have three of these eye tattoos in the colors: Tenacious Teal, Bad to the Bronze, and Audacious Asphalt. The fomulas should be the same, but I feel each one has a different texture so I have different opinions on each other them. Bad to the Bronze if my favorite! It has such a nice shimmery brown color. Also is goes on my eyes so nicely and never creases or wears off. Tenacious Teals' color is very nice, but has to be used very lightly or else you will end up looking like a clown. It goes on nice but seems to crease after a couple of hours. Audacious Asphault seems like a totally different prouct. When put on the eyelid it does not blend easily at all, and it creases within the hour. I give the color tattoos a 5/5 because I'm so blown away with Bad the the Bronze, it makes up for the other less amazing shades.

I hated these and returned the few i purchased. It was an awful selection of colors and no matter what i tried i couldn't get it to go on evenly.

Reasons why I love these:
1. rich, highly pigmented color. These are not wimpy colors at all, though you could use just a slight amount for a sheer wash. buildable, dense color. Love!
2. they.do.not.crease. at all! It drives me crazy when my eyeshadow is creased and greasy looking by the end of the workday.
3. easy to apply. I use a short, blunt eyeshadow brush rather than my fingers for more control. creamy application that sets to a powder finish.
4. versatile. you can easily use a liner brush and apply like gel liner.
5. beautifully blend-able. I blend with a neutral shade in the crease for a work ready look.
6. inexpensive. really, $6 and they will last and last.
7. Nice glass pot packaging. No cheap plastic here!
These are an excellent drugstore buy, and I hope they will expand the color line. I own the tough as taupe and bad to the bronze shades, with plans to get the burgundy and green shades, too. HG status for me!

I have this in Bold Gold. It works great as a base for other gold shadows or great alone. I heard tons of people raving about this product and decided to try one out. It's not that expensive, seeing as how it's drugstore, and it is definitely worth getting! After about 8 hours of school the pigmentation was still there and there's no creasing at all!! The only problem is that putting it on is a little messy. It is so shimmery so you have to be careful. It works fine using your fingers to apply but I actually like using a concealer brush! I definitely want to get more of the color tattoos!

Very pigmented colors, bought the white gold bronze taupe and pomegranate ones. Packaging nice. Easy to apply. Look nice on... But they don't stay! They crease after a few hours, even with a primer or set with powder. Don't recommend.
