Great inexpensive product. I use the brown which is perfect for my ridiculously white skin and fair features, and yet to me it's still a bold enough colour that i can wear it at night with smokey eyes etc; it's a very dark brown. I only ever wear liquid liner on my top lash line/waterline. Love this product!
I'm so shocked at the negative reviews this product has received. I bought it last night and had my first wear today and i loved it!! It was a beautiful girly pink and lasted all day. I have to say though i am extremely white so the colour probably shows on my much easier than on others. I'm really impressed with it! I bought it on special at about $8ish which i'm really happy with- with normal Australian prices i would consider it a bit expensive. Again, surprised by the reviews, i would recommend it and i think it's gorgeous!
Finally jumped on the Colour Tattoo band-wagon! I only bought it because there was a massive sale; ordinarily in Australia they're too expensive for my liking. So it was about $7-8. I think it's going to last ages. So easy to apply- i just used my finger! I couldn't believe the longevity of it. I never thought a cream product would last so long! It did crease slightly but as long as i 'pat' over the lid once or twice a day it's fine, and i usually have to do this with my powder shadows anyway. Gorgeous plummy colour which by the looks of it can be applied heavily or sparingly for a nice subtle look. Bought it last night, wore it today and am in love!
I'm actually really impressed with this product!! I've been using it all over my face, neck, decolletage and back for breakout and congestion. My skin has really improved. I'm also using it in these areas as a bit of a preventative because my skin's been so bad lately. Doesn't dry out skin like some other acne creams. Really heals breakout that you've picked/squeezed and calms the angry red areas. My congestion has decreased too. I'd definitely recommend this :)
AMAZING! I consider this product to be very expensive. However, it is a great product. I think only fairly sophisticated skincare users would like it because i suppose some could consider it a little finicky to use. Apply a thin layer, allow to dry completely, then use fingers to buff/rub off; which will result in a little bit of a mess like what's you'd have if you 'rubbed out' something written in pencil. So this provides the physical exfoliating action but also there's chemical component. It's very gentle, smells amazing too! By amazing i mean ridiculously strong - enough to make the eyes water! But the smell doesn't phase me because i know how well the product works. Skin feels so soft and smooth afterwards. Will definitely use this again :)

I love this product! I have it in brown. For my everyday makeup look i wear a brown-black liquid eyeliner on top and this on the outer 3rd of my lower lashes. It is the first eyeliner i've ever worn that won't budge! So no smudging under the eye and no disappearing act as the day goes on. Although the little brush was pretty fab i use another brush which is angled. Blends well if you apply it and think it's a little too 'stark'. I would love to get this in black too for an evening look. One of these days i should try it on the tops of my lashes too! It's cheap as chips and by the looks of it will last forever. I would definitely recommend and re-buy this product :)

I bought this product because of the hype that surrounds it! So many people rave about it and i just had to have it! I eventually bought it when it was only Aust $39 at a Chemist Warehouse type place. I am so devastated because i just don't see what all the fuss is about! I so badly want to like this product but it just doesn't seem to work for me. When i put it on under my eyes it goes very powdery and emphasises my non-existent fine lines! It seems very drying almost immediately after putting it on the skin. I have also tried to use it around my nostrils and down the lines outside my mouth which was also unimpressive. Perhaps my expectations were too high because it seems to be everyone's HG item? I haven't been able to give mine away yet (my friends are all much darker than myself). I would definitely not repurchase it. Particularly not for the full price! So glad i only paid half! I can't bring myself to chuck it out and keep promising myself i'll keep trying it until i like it; but no luck yet!!
