I have this product in Audacious Asphalt, Too Cool, and Painted Purple. This is my first experience with a creme eye shadow and I definitely prefer it. I find it best to apply with a concealer brush due to the consistency; for anyone having issues with blending... this may help you out! I have allergies and subsequently rub my eyes throughout the day and this eye shadow definitely stands up! I usually use the Too Cool as a highlight in the corners of my eyelid then blend it outward into either the Painted Purple or sometimes the Audacious Asphalt. The purple is a gorgeous bright jewel tone though it can be blended out into a lighter more lilac-like shade. I love the versatility of the product! You can either apply it heavily for an intense night-time look or blend it out for a pigmented casual look.I highly recommend the Painted Purple for anyone with green eyes; they will make your eyes stand out beautifully!

I bought the Color Tattoo eyeshadow called "too cool". I really wanted to like this eyeshadow but it was just too dry. It really wasn't blendable; which was my biggest issue with this product. Overall the product is, in my opinon, just okay. I won't buy this again. But maybe the other colors in this line are better.

These shadows are definitely unique, but I do find some problems with them.
Application can be patchy and uneven at times. When I go to apply this, sometimes the top of the product will be hard, making it hard to get the creamy, gel consistency it's supposed to be. I always make sure to close them tightly too, but still find the same thing. Also, the product can kind of build up on my finger, and not transfer onto my lid evenly. It can be difficult to get the product from your finger onto your lid.
Despite these issues, these still make wonderful bases. Even with the uneven application, they're great for adding another dimension to the eyeshadow you apply over them. I have no problems with creasing either.
These are a so-so product. I like the ones I own, but I'm not running out to buy them all. I don't reach for them as often as I'd like to because they can take some times to work with

I tried one in white (I can't remember the name of it) when the line first came out and was disappointed by the outcome on my lids. Fast forward today and I'm in love with the "tangy" orange and this pretty blue/green turquoise shade. The pigmentation is rich and on my lids it translates beautifully. Added bonus is when I pair it up with a coordinating powder eyeshadow....oh buddy! It makes me eyes just POP. I look forward to adding further colors to my collection. It definitely rivals my MAC paint pots. Will definitely snag more shades in the future.

I have this product in three shades; Bold Gold, Tough as Taupe & Pomegranate Punk. I have absolutely fallen in love with some of the LE shades, but unfortunately they are not available in Australia. These shadows are perfect as bases, paired with other shadows & on their own.

The "shimmer particles" (I don't know the technical term for them) are too large for my taste. It lasted well through a work out and did not crease, but I was disappointed with the overall look which was undeniably glitter-like. I will experiment with it a little more but don't think you should have to work hard for eye shadow to look nice. I have a few other cream eye shadows I like (Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Rimmel, MAC); I doubt this will be added to the list

I'm shocked to see the negative reviews. I personally love this product and cream shadows all together. Maybelline has never disappointed me. I personally can't use powdery eye shadows because I always end up itching my eye while wearing it which in turn messes everything up. I love the shades that Color Tattoo comes in. I have Painted Purple, Pomegranate Punk, and Audacious Asphalt. I also love that these can be used as an eyeliner (or at least I've used them as that a couple few times). I find that they do have a longer lasting power when used as a liner. The price isn't the best though. I believe I paid close to 6 dollars for just one. However that sort of outrageous price is expected due to the fact its Maybelline. Other than that I would recommend this product to anyone! I can't wait to get some of the other shades.

I do like these cream eyeshadows, but I cannot say that I'm totally obsessed. They make a very great base if your using glitter pots or anything like that on top, but I wouldn't wear these alone without something going over it. They don't have much pigmentation, which I was expecting them to with the words 'colour tattoo'. I have them in 'Immortal Charcoal' & 'On and on bronze', and use them with gold/black eye shadow going over the top usually. Quite a nice product but not outstanding, there is better out there.

Even with a primer these are not good value especially in Australia where we pay double the price than everywhere else it seems. Creases even with a primer. Forget 24 hours. Creases in half a hour.

I have used the taupe which is more of a grey than a taupe. Nevertheless, I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. I use this as an everyday crease color for a smokey eye. I apply it with my finger and can use more or less depending on how dark I want it to be. You have to act quick though because it is difficult to blend the longer it sits on your eyelid. I always use primer, so I'm not sure about it staying 24 hours, but in all honesty, who wants it to last that long anyway? It is definitely still on and noticeable when I take my makeup off at night after a long workday. I love this so much I want to purchase in another color!

One of my all time favorite products! Awesome pigmentation, easy application and it lasts a pretty long time for me. I have never had a creasing issue with these, although I have seen some people say they had some creasing problems, so just in case I would wear these with a primer.
My favorite one is "Bold Gold", which I've also purchased for a friend. I've used these multiple times for different looks and I've very rarely been unhappy with the outcome! Although, I wouldn't try using the color "Too Cool" as a shadow base, I tried and it was one of the only times I wasn't pleased with the outcome.

I love this product. I use it everyday. I've used only the bronze color and I've heard the other ones are chalky but this one is really good. I go to a lot of over night events and it actually last for 24 hours!

I find it very difficult to review this product. I have to of them, the white one ( if forgot the name) and on and on bronze.
The white one sucks, it is a very shimmery one and not very pigmented, i never use it.
Bad to the bronze is a shimmery dark brown eyeshadow. I sometimes wear it all over my eyes but it is very dark, so I don't really wear it when I am at school. I am not sure if this is the same colour as the american bad to the bronze.
Now .. for the product in general.. it lasts a long time, though not 24 hours. I lasts about a school day. And it ain't waterproof. I tried swimming with it, and i was wearing snorkling glasses, but it still didn't last. it can be a bit dry sometimes and doesn't always evenly apply. The product is okay.. but it is not like I am jumping in the air for enthusiasm.

I believe I am in the minority here as I just do not like the texture of these cream eye shadows. Even when warming them up and applying them with my fingers it feels like I am smearing paste on my eyelids. It definately lives up to its claim of stickability as I cannot remove it without using oil. Also the blend ability is near non exist ant if you hesitate for a fraction too long as it sets and won't budge without doing some serious damage to the skin. The colours are lovely so I'm using them on my daughters as dress up make up and they love it.

Am pleased to say I would buy again and actually already have. This is the one and only creme eye shadow that has ever lasted more than a few hours on my eyelids. I don't think I have overly oily eyelids but creme shadows react to your body heat and before you know it you've got color in the creases and it looks like crap. Not this. I purchased this in the Bronze and Gold colors to begin with (can't remember the names). LOVE the gold...is a fine shine and doesn't make me look like a disco ball. Use that usually as a highlighter. You have to work rather quickly because this does dry making it harder to blend. Since that first purchase I have also bought the pomegranite color (again...cannot remember the name and I know I spelled that wrong, lol). I am really happy with that one because although it looks like a very bold reddish brown in the pot, it is a more muted version of that color on my lids and very pretty. I will say that the only reason I gave this eye shadow a 4 instead of a 5 rating is because there is a very limited color selection. That said, I went to Walmart today and there is a new "metallics" line of these shadows and I found myself purchasing a few more, lol. As for the claim of 24 hour wear -- not on me. I can still see that it's there after an 8 hour work day but it has faded. However, I really like this shadow and would buy more if they'd expand their color palette. I like creme shadows because the colors always seem a bit more vivid and so I'm happy that a company was able to create one that doesn't melt within 30 min. :)

I am beside myself in love with these. I generally love cream eyeshadows with staying power, but it's hard to find matte ones. While I also love the shimmers that I have, the Taupe is by far my favorite. It is such a stunning, flattering, gorgeous color. Looks like underachieving dirt in the jar, but it's creamy, blendable, versatile heaven on the lids. I use the Too Cool to highlight my inner eyes/tear ducts.
Although they generally stay put, I still use my Nars primer underneath, as I've noticed some of the colors, especially the shimmers, crease after a few hours.
Great bang for the buck on these. I also love Benefit Creaseless (have an obscene number of those), Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof, and the MUFE Black Tango set, and these affordable Maybelline's hold their own against those.
LOVE LOVE LOVE these. My only complaint is that I can't ever find any of the gosh darn Fall 2012 limited edition colors. And I wish they had more color options in matte.

the texture of this is horrible! it cannot be blended and it creases like crazy. feels like glue on my eyes. too shimmery too! not impressed. yes it stays on for a decent time, but it looks like crap

ICK. After falling in love with L'Oreal's Infallible creams, I thought I would try Maybelline's version because they were on sale and had a color I wanted to try. Whereas my L'Oreal shadows are creamy and easy to blend, this was sticky and putty-like. The color payoff sucked, I could see my lid in streaks even after 3 coats. It made my lids feel like I rubbed Elmer's glue on them. The color creased and did not wear well even for 6 hours. Gross. I will be sticking to my Infallible, take my word of caution and do the same!

I love and hate this eye shadow. I love the color payoff and its longevity but its scary hard to blend and its really hard to apply with a brush. I wish they had a true black but I like these shadow.s kind of

These eyeshadows are awesome :) I have the one in "Bold Gold" and it's a creamy, nice color. I love how it has a shimmer in it, without the chunky sparkles, that falls off and ends up everywhere except on my eyelids! The color is creamy and soft and goes on nice. It is metallic and not matte. The only downside is that, it isn't so pigmented. But, that's no worries, because I use this as a base(the staying power is AMAZINGGG!) and then the gold shadow in the Too Faced kit "The Return of Sexy" over it. I get the PERFECT gold, sexy sultry eyes every time. I'm in love and will be buying more colors, thanks Maybelline!
