After buying this color the first time, I ended up buying 6 more! If not used with a primer though the color might bleed into your creases. All in all it is definitely worth a try.

The first color tattoo from the line I ever tried was Bad to the Bronze, so when I bought this purple color tattoo, I had high expectations for it. I was expecting it to be creamy, easy to blend, and true to color like the other formulas. Painted Purple looks like a really deep, rich purple in the pot, but when applied to the eye and blended out, it looks like a dull, greyed purple. I found that it applied kind of patchily to my eyelids and wasn't the most ideal base for powder products. My purple eye shadows looked better when I just used Too Faced Shadow Insurance and layered the shadow over top of that. It's hard to find purple shadows with good formulas that don't look dull on the eyes, so I feel like I wouldn't have been as disappointed with the product if I didn't know how amazing the other colors in the line were.

It is such a pretty color! I don't like it as a shadow, so I use it as an eyeliner, even then it doesn't last long. I put a primer on and put a purple eyeliner on under and it still does not last long.

I know this eyeshadow is getting some bad reviews. I agree - as an eyeshadow it's not the greatest. It's definitely not as pigmented as the other tattoo colors (Bad to the Bronze is amazing!). By itself, it's not a great eyeshadow.
However, I think this makes an amazing eyeshadow base for purple eyeshadow. The colour is an exact dupe to NYX's jumbo eye pencil in Purple, but unlike the jumbo eye pencils, it doesn't crease!
It's a great base to make my purple eyeshadow look more vibrant. I like layering Vellum, Seedy Pearl and Satellite Dreams over it. It also pairs beautifully with my plummy browns such as Twins and Sable.
If you're looking for a good eyeshadow "base" this works great. If you're looking for a vibrant purple cream shadow, look else ware.

It's a shame that this Color Tattoo is so sheer compared to the rest of the shades in the product family, and even more of a shame that I usually like purple eyeshadows and that this one was a disappointment. This is a more matte, basic purple that looks pigmented in the pot but blends out so sheer, and unevenly! The more I blend out uneven, clumpy areas, the sheerer it becomes, until I've practically rubbed it all off. I have more luck packing on more color and building up the intensity... but then at the end of the day it just feels really heavy. Not to mention, this creases if I don't wear a powder eyeshadow over it.
I love all of the Color Tattoos but this is the only shade that's been a let-down. I've been hunting for the limited edition shade Fuschia Fever in hopes that it's much better than Painted Purple.

wow what a disappointment. I love the bold purple color in the pot. but once you put in on, it's very sheer. you can build it, but it takes many coats & it starts to get creas-y. The formula is not smooth & creamy like some of the other colors either. This one is more dry & doesn't go on nice. Such a letdown.

T he purple is too sheer for my liking.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I love using this as a primer for my eyeshadow. It makes the purple deeper and I don't have any fall out. There's been a few times I've been on deadline and been able to sleep a few hours. When I wake up it looks like I just put it on which lets me get a bit more sleep. I apply it with a brush and it goes on evenly. Since I never use it on its own I can't say anything about that, but I did notice its very sheer and not like the color in the jar. Since I use it under my normal es I will be buying it again.

I don't like this stuff. Not at all. It's supposed to be super creamy and pigmented. The color is not even or pigmented. Its thin and looks cheap. NO. just no.

A false advert is a false advert. This purple is not like the ads and worse still, applies very unevenly. Difficult to work with because as you smooth it over skin it kind of clumps up even after you keep working with it it keeps sliding around. Would not think of wearing it alone. You would have to top it off with a shadow to get the purple shown in the ads. Skip this color and try Bad to the Bronze. I also have Mossy Green, which is better than this purple one, but not as good as Bad to the Bronze.

I love the Color Tattoo line, these eye shadows offer the bold brilliance of a cream shadow with the longevity of a powder shadow. I think the low rating for this color as compared to the other ones is due to some having a different expectation of the color outcome. I know I did! On the outside of the pot, I thought the color would be a more bold purple, however, it's pretty 'tame'. I have come to like this color. It looks beautiful on dark brown eyes as a lonely shade swept over the eyelid.

Horrible. When applied, clumps and won't glide on smooth. Can't get color to build. Sorry Maybelline. I'm going back to my Urban Decay FLASH. It never let me down.

I just loved this eyeshadow in the other shades I have, so when I saw that they were $4.89 as opposed to almost $10 I picked up two: Painted Purple and Tenacious Teal. This review is for the purple.
As many of the reviews say, the opacity of this eyeshadow in the jar is misleading. When applied to my eyelid it does not show up, and looks quite muddy. I tried to layer it to have the colour build up but it just doesn't look that nice. Definitely won't purchase this shade again but I'll try to find ways to make it work.

I get why many of the reviews for this product are negative, the color comes off as a lighter purple than it looks in the pan,and the color is not as buildable as most of the other color tattoos. But, I still love this color. This shade of purple looks awesome with my dark brown eyes, I like to put this on as a lid color and then line my eye with black or brown liner. It looks really good and it stays forever. I've gotten many complements on it in the few times I've worn it over the last couple weeks.

I was very disappointed by the color payoff. It really is not nearly as good as the rest of the products from this line.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
This is not very pigmented at all, i have to really put a lot on to make it seen. and that's really the only reason i buy shadows so it's a big thumbs down for me

I don't use this as a shadow per se, but as a liner which seems to last very long. The color is seemingly very vivid med/dark purple, but once on, it is only about medium. Not sure why this got such a low rating, but as with all the rest of these, you need to use a sponge applicator and really sweep the product and smooth it, or it can overload; that's my only beef with this product. Other than that, I think this is brilliant!

-Easy to apply
-Cheap (I found it at Target for $5.84!)
-Pigmented (To an extent)
-The purple shade has to be built up to reach the best pigmentation
-More expensive at frequent beauty stores (runs about $8 at Ulta, which I visit more than Target or Walmart)
-Not pigmented enough to wear by itself
-Small color selection
I would repurchase this in a different shade, definitely! The Painted Purple is the only shade I have purchased, and if I get the money to buy more, I would definitely LOVE to have the whole collection! <3

Love Color Tattoo shadows! For less than six dollars they wear as well as Benefit Creaseless Creams and MAC Paintpots on me, anyway. I have oily lids and do not use a primer. I like how they do not accentuate any crepiness in my eye area either. As others have mentioned, if you are looking for this one to go on like it looks in the pot, you will be very disappointed. This goes on very sheer. It is slightly buildable. It is still a very pretty purple color and makes my hazel eye pop!

Gorgeous colour and concept-- why haven't other drugstore companies thought of this? It lasts longer than my Revlon cream shadows and doesn't crease! I love that it doesn't crease. It's just, after a couple of hours, the purple fades into a light transparent purple. I'd give it 5 stars if it could maintain its pigment.
