I have several of these Tattoo eyeshadows. My favorite is the Tough as Taupe color. They stay on better than any creme eyeshadow that I've tried.
I have oily skin, and they do crease a bit by the end of the day (I'm not using a primer or anything. Just the shadow alone). These would be perfect if they didn't crease at all, but the creasing is minor compared to other creme shadows that I've tried.
I just use my finger to apply. I swipe a little across my lids in the morning. It gives my eyes a little more of a finished look than leaving them bare. It only takes a few seconds, so these are a winner in my book.

I really like these eyeshadows, I bought mine in Taupe, or permanent taupe. It seems like the only matte colour there is but there is extremely subtle shimmer specks in this, not shimmer, just the specks, I would class this as a matte colour.
The colour also isn't taupe, it is a grey with subtle brown in it, the colour is far from boring.
A little goes a long way, it dries matte, but very very dry, it won't budge!
The packaging is quite bulky, and the amount of product you get is quite thin in depth, but I imagine it will still last me a long time.
You can wear this as an eyeliner, part of a smokey eyeliner, in your eye crease as a contour, as an eye shadow, it is very versatile.
Also you probably wouldn't even need an eye shadow primer with this, it will just stay on your skin and not smudge or budge anywhere, even with oily lids. Maybelline do produce great products that do last when it says 24 hour, or 14 hour, it lives up to the name.

I absolutely LOVE this product! I have super oily eyelids and have tried nearly all the drugstore/high-street primers available and none seem to have helped, i research thoroughly into this product before i brought it so that i was near enough sure that it wont be a waste of money if it did exactly what i wanted it to. It defo does not crease my eyeshadow and keep my eye makeup very long lasting. One critique was that the only matte shade which i could find was 'permanent taupe', personally i found it wasn't very neutral for everyday use, also it is not at all true to colour, the product when first opened seemed like a nice champagne pink colour but after i swatched it is turned into a dark purply-brown colour, maybe keep that in mind when purchasing this shade :D

Thanks to "prettyshinysparkly" on YouTube, I decided to give these a try...
I really like them!! I use Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe pretty much every day.
My only complaint is that I wish they would come out with more colors for (women) to use daily.
I just don't understand the turquoise, bright blue, green colors, etc.
To me, those seem like they're geared more toward teenagers. Not a look that I'm going for as a mom with 3 kids.

I use this product every day. It lasts all day and doesn't fade or get oily. I use bad to the bronze and it really compliments my green eyes.

The line has pretty colors, and some of the limited edition colors are cool, but these are way overhyped. When you first buy them, they apply well, and they last well with a primer. Key word: WITH. Without a primer these do not last on the eyes well. With a primer, they don't crease, and they do not fade for at least 8 hours. The packaging is nice; it is very easy to access the product with a brush or your fingertip without having to dig into it. However, these dry out within a month or so. They don't simply get dry, though. They get a weird, rubbery texture to them, so you can somewhat still use them, but they are not pleasant to use. I have found that microwaving them (without the lid) for about 30 seconds on high heat will reverse this effect for a short period of time. I still purchase new ones knowing full-well that they get dry soon afterward, and I do microwave them. I just don't think these are AMAZINGOMG products. They are just better than other, inexpensive cream eyeshadows.

I don't like cream eye shadows and don't tend to buy them at all but I heard amazing things about these so decided why not! I bought Tough as Taupe and Pomegranate Punk. I actually really like these, as basis and on their own. The formula is very creamy and well pigmented and lasts quite awhile. I know I'll end up getting more colors :)

* note: sorry In advance for the long review, I try to be as detailed as possible to help other members get a good understanding of the product :-)*
Ok so these are one of my favourite products in my makeup collection. They are so easy to apply and just are simply amazing.
APPLICATION: for a cream eyeshadow these are EXTREMELY easy to apply. Although you can use a brush, if it is for personal use I recommend using your finger as it is way easier to apply it that way and it takes very little time, giving you a simple, even application.
AVAILABILITY: These are usually well stocked in most stores and are available in pretty much every store that sells "drugstore" makeup, eg: Target, Wal-Mart, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, etc. Some specific colours I have found are very popular and run out fast though eg: Barely Branded, Bad To the Bronze, and Inked in Pink. I would recommend if you see these colours and are interested to pick them up as you see them.
FUNCTIONALITY: these are so easy and functional to use. The product contains 4g of product and it goes a LONG way. For reference I use my barely branded eyeshadow daily and it lasts me months. Also if you put your finger in the product one dab or finger (if that makes sense :-P) is enough for the whole eye. And they are sweat and oil proof.
PACKAGING: I love, love, love, the packaging of these. It is super sleek and sanitary. And an added plus if you have a large makeup collection like me and have to make the most out of your storage they store really nicely. If you use the long narrow bins that fit the mac blushes or other circle shaped shadows these fit PERFECTLY in them the only thing I would recommend is labelling the side of the product if you have a few of them so they are easier to identify because otherwise you may have to go through a few until you find what your looking for
PRICE: the price of these can vary quite a bit where I live (Canada). They are most usually though anywhere between $4.99 CAN and $6.99 CAN. Depending on the sale schedule. It is quite rare for me th8ugh to see them for $4.99 so I would recommend stocking up when they are that price like I do ;-) :-P
WEAR-ABILITY / LONGEVITY: These products come in so many different colours for every different skin tone. They also have amazing lasting abilities on the eyelid (even for people with oily lids) they also Work great as bases, so if you are trying to get makeup that is a little more budget friendly these are perfect because they eliminate the need for other products.
Not too mention they last all day so by eliminating touch ups you are using less product thus saving money and making the product go further
OVERALL: this is a great "high end" product at a "low end" price that works for all people of all skin types and tones
*Thankyou for reading through my long review and hopefully I was able to help you :-P :-) if you have any questions about this product or certain shades PLEASE feel free to message me. Also feel free to message me if you have any other review requests or questions about certain products as I collect makeup and have a big collection and am going through to review other products in my collection* <3

i have never had any luck with cream shadows. I have oily lids and it always ends up in my creases and worn of within a very short time. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!
no need for a primer. I wear it to work where i sweat a lot and after 8-9 hours i get home and it hasn't budged, looks freshly applied. added bonus is that is isn't any harder to remove than any other shadow. no special remover or repeat wash required.
the colors in the jar can be a little intimidating for someone who isn't used to color but they do have some tones like bad to the bronze that are more subtle. thing is you can apply as little or as much as you like making it more vibrant or less.
i bought two neutral shadows to try and have purchases some of the more brighter colors since. mix and match. love it.
i only wish they made liner and mascara too!
