I've been suckered before by cream e/s (creasy, greasy, poor colour pay-off) and so was pretty skeptical about these. These are actually pretty good especially for the price. My one remaining bit of niggle about these is the inconsistency of colour pay-off and texture in the range, and that the full range isn't available in New Zealand.
Bold Gold - Sheerish light gold with shimmer rather than glitter. Most traditional 'cream' texture. Reasonable pay-off, but sheerer than I was expecting.
Tough as Taupe - Matte greyish-brown. Work-friendly, dryish texture but easy to smear on and go.
Audacious Asphalt - Medium silver grey with silver sparkles. Hard to work, goes on unevenly, really hard to blend, too much work.
Painted Purple - Metallic purple with a hint of pink iridescence. Poor pay-off, but is useful as a base under purple e/s.
I find a sponge-tip applicator works really well for applying these (except Asphalt for which I don't know WHAT would work) as brushes get gunky and my fingertip doesn't do a good blending job.
I have found that these need to be stored upside down to prevent them drying out. I've had the four above for at least a year and they haven't dried out yet.

I love these eyeshadows! I don't use them for straight eyeshadows though, unless I'm in a hurry. I usually wear them as a base to make my eyeshadows I put on top of them pop more. I want to get every color! So far I have 7. They are very pigmented, super inexpensive and worth every single lipstick I gave them! If you don't own one, run out and get one now!

I have this amazing product in four shades (bad to the bronze, pomegranate punk, too cool, and bare beige) and I definitely plan on getting more! My eyelids are the traditional Asian eyes, so there is no crease and the eyelid sort of folds in on itself, giving my virtually no room to do any cool makeup looks :( . Anyways; my eyelids are also naturally oily so it's just a recipe for disaster. I used to NEVER wear eyeshadow because evrytime I closed my eyes, you would see the eyeshadow gathered in the would-be crease of my eye. That is definitely not a pretty look. Thanks to Maybelline, I can now wear eyeshadow without it creasing! I usually have to touch up my makeup midday during lunch, but that's only because my lids are extremely oily and I just find joy in doing my makeup xD. Aside from that, these go great by themselves, or topped with eyeshadow! I tend to top them with eyeshadow ebcause it lasts much longer on my lids, and shadow also intensify the base a bit more which I need since you don't see my eye makeup unless I blink. These cream shadows also help my eyeliner stay in place which also used to run into my crease. These are my HG in eyeshadow bases, and no other primer or base has ever worked for me, including UDPP, MAC paint pots, or any other pirmers. Overall, I will keep repuchasing these shadows over and over again and I hope Maybellin enver discontinues them; they found a repeated buyer in me!

I bought this in "Bold Gold" and I really like this product!
It is a small package but a little of this hard-cream shadow goes a long way. For a cream based shadow this product does not crease during the day, even when I applied it without a primer first. I was very impressed because I find cream shadows are usually so disappointing in how fast they crease.
The color was pretty bold, maybe not quite as bold as I had hoped it would be, but very pretty when layered for a night out or with one application for day. I'd like to try this in other colors.

Gorgeous, and gourgeous.... this is a beautiful line of eyeshadows My fave is the bad to the bronze! the only thing is it creases so you have to put a primer underneath but I do it in every shadow anyways!

I really like these! They are really pigmented and last a long time on my lids. They don't crease and you don't have to use a primer. Just keep in mind I don't have oily lids or anything like that...I like to use Barely Branded on my lid and inner corners in the morning to make me look more awake. Inked in Pink is really pretty with it as well if you place it on your lid and work it into your crease for contrast with the barely branded.

I absolutely love these and will of course continue to repurchase them. First of all, the colors are gorgeous and nicely pigmented. I have Bad to the Bronze, and it is a gorgeous color that looks amazing just as that one color on my lid, which is really quick and easy to apply. Second, I really like the consistency and texture. Third, they are really long wearing and you don't need a primer. I got my head wet by accident while wearing this eyeshadow and it did not budge. These are amazing and I will definitely buy more! Even though they are kind of on the pricey side for drugstore eyeshadow, it is totally worth the money. These are soooo amazing I TOTALLY RECOMMEND I LOVE THEM SO MUCH WORDS JUST CANNOT EXPRESS

Love those, I have 7 of them. I can put just one color all over the lid and it will look stunning. The only thing I have to say is that they're hard to blend out since they are cream shadows. I still love those & I will keep purchasing them until I die.

THis product is really nice! this is my first day using this, i have the color 'tough as toape' i go for natral products since im 13 i go for more natral shades. though this shade is gourgous! But... its not really that natural. this product was also 8$ +! Thats kind of expensive to me.
1.The color is pigmented and has a variety of colors
2. The actual shadow is really creamy but stubborn sometimes.
3. they stay on nice without a primer
1. Applying the shadow is a little tough, its not so creamy when you put it on.
2.The price is 7-9$... that more on the expensive side
3. To open the jar it is confusing.. i though it would be on te opposite side.. the label is on the bottem side also.
over all i love this product!

- Neat packaging.
- Soft texture
- Messy for a cream shadow
- Not pigmented almost at all
- Can't wear this alone.
I picked up a bronze color because I was desperately searching for one and it's the most beautiful color. I absolutely love it!

LOVE THESE!!!!!!!!!! They are perfection, totally worth it for that price! I've never really tried cream shadows before, mostly because they crease on me even with a primer. I have SUPER oily eyelids & these almost never crease especially if I put shadow on top. Sometimes if I apply it very heavily it can crease but I find that the best way is to build up thin layers. I can't rave about these enough. I also love the packaging, it's solid & feels nice.

I got this to test it against my BeneFit Creaseless Cream Shadows (which are $20 each!!!). Couldn't be happier! So far the color tattoo in Barely Branded has been AMAZE-BEANS!!!!! Went on super smooth, totally buildable, blended BEAUTIFULLY with my MAC shadows over it/in the crease. I don't honestly think I gave it a fair chance to fail me (aka crease) so I will update as necessary. But for now, this has definitely taken over the place of my BeneFit Creaseless shadows in my heart!
P.S. I get these as CVS on sale and with coupons and member rewards so the price is down to nearly free for 2 color tattoos. No lie. CVS is a MAJOR SAVER for a makeup junkie like me. I think I paid $3 for two of these. And I WAS paying $40 for 2 at Sephora for the BeneFit shadows. Um HELLO!!!!

I have "Bad to the Bronze" and "Tenacious Teal".
"Bad to the Bronze" is a golden brown color, of course, and its a rather light color.
"Tenacious Teal" looks more blue-ish in the packaging and swatched on your hand but next to my blue eyes, it does show up to be a rich blue-teal color.
Both colors are gorgeous and easily buildable. There's no fallout and its easy to apply with a brush. They do contain a bit of glitter but it's not overdone.
Comparing them to L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows, I say these are better. The Infallible eyeshadows do have fallout since they are more of a powdery crème eyeshadow and it's difficult to apply them with a brush. Plus Tattoo is cheaper.
The advantages Infallible has over Tattoo is that they have more color selections and come in matte or shimmer (they have more shimmer than matte). Other than that they both have great staying power and have lovely colors.
Of course, I do use E.L.F. Eyelid Primer as a safety precaution but that's just because I have very oily eyelids.
I would most definitely repurchase! I'm starting an eyeshadow collection and I would like to get "Tough as Taupe", "Pomegranate Punk", and there are new Metallic colors I want! :D

I bought one of these over a year ago and used it once because I wasn't sure I liked it yet. Never used it again but recently bought two more due to my local store having a sale. I'm not sure about the 24hr claim only because I've only wore it to go out at night. I still recommend using a eye primer underneath, but the colors look beautiful. The only thing bad I can say is that it's not the easiest to work with. When trying to blend wth other shadows it wipes off some of what you already put on your lid. I'm working with it so I think I would definitely by again. It'll take some practice.

These are I guess kind of a dupe for Paint pots.The color selection is nice now that they have added more colors to their collection. I Have Tough as Taupe,Bad to the bronze and fierce & tangy.Fierce and tangy is their orange color, looks nice with a nice brown and golden eyeshadow.Texture of this one isnt as smooth as the other two.My fav is Bad to the Bronze.Beautiful color on its own or as a base to make browns POP.I gave this 4 stara, because the consistency in texture as they are applied is not the same for each color.Other then that, I love them.

I have about 5 of these. I like them alot. They are great eyeshadow bases and you can also just wear buy themselves. My favorites or ones that I wear the most are Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe. My least favorite and one that I hardly wear is the Painted Purple, its just not that pigmented and doesn't wear very well. But the other ones like Audacious Asphault the dark grey one is great and is also one of my favorites to wear under most eye shadows and they definately make your eyeshadow last all day long. Overall I love these and will definately repurchase. :.

Being a contact lens-wearer, I am a huge fan of cream and gel eyeshadows, and this is one of my new favorites. It glides on smoothly, it's reasonably priced, and you get a good amount of product. I also like how easy it is to blend with other shadows, both cream and powder. I have it in Bad to the Bronze and I really love the color, it goes very well with my skin tone. My only complaint is that it's a bit too shimmery for my liking, but that's easily fixable with a tiny bit of matte powder tapped on top.
Overall, I love it. It's been one of my best buys in a while.

I recently picked up a Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze since everybody's been raving about them and I'm in love. Bad to the Bronze is a gorgeous color, and it can be worn alone. I apply it to my whole lid with my finger and then use my finger to pat a shimmery beige shadow onto the inner half of my eye. Its so easy!
I never really wore eyeshadow on a daily basis before i got this, simply because it was annoying to apply, but now it's incredibly easy and fast! I always wear primer under this and it doesn't crease for 14 hours (which is when I take off my makeup at night) and I have very oily eyelids. People with less oily eyelids could probably go without a primer, but I never took the chance.
Overall, I LOVE this product so much and I will definitely pick up some more! Hopefully Maybelline will come out with more colors!

Love them! Purchased Fierce and Tangy, Too Cool, Bad to the Bronze, and Tough as Taupe. They are just as good as MAC Paint Pots. I use these as a base or just all over the lid. They have never creased on me even after a long day. Sometimes they don't glide on very well. The matte shades are on the dry side but I just rub them around with my finger before applying - to warm it up. Haven't had too much of a problem though. My favorite of the bunch is Bad to the Bronze, its the most creamy and not to mention a really beautiful shade. Want to purchase more in the future :]
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
AMAZING! I have almost all the colors and I love them and use them daily. They are very pigmented, they don't crease and they look fabulous. Also, they are super cheap and the quality is beyond amazing. Definitely worth the money! The only one I'm disappointed with is "Barely Branded" which is a beige with slight shimmer to it. It goes on chalky, it's not pigmented at all and it's hard to apply. It doesn't go on smooth like the rest of them and if you put too much by accident it will look very bad so you have to be very careful.
Overall, I still love them and I hope they come out with more colors:)
