Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo



So I know that I'm extremely late to be jumping on the hype that is the Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo band wagon, but I'd like to share my opinion anyhoo :)
(A year or so isn't too late is it...?)

I've read heaps of reviews over the past year & as usual I gave in & purchased these a month ago or so. I've always wanted to get my paws on these eye shadows but whenever I've gone into Boots or Superdrug I always come across something new that I get super excited about & end up forgetting to add these little beauties to my basket. I've don't own any cream gel eye shadows & always stuck to what I know with powder eye shadows so I thought this would be ideal to give my make up bag a it of a revamp! 
Excuses excuses...;)

 The 2 colours I opted for are Eternal Gold & Pink Gold, as these were the 2 colours of the selection I liked the most. First & foremost let me just rave about the pigmentation of these eye shadows - oh my lord they are AMAZING! (I say this in an opera voice haha) You literally need the tiniest amount & it will go such a long way & I know that these little pots of gold will last me foreverrr! Both colours are so stunning & flattering when they are applied and blended, if I want a bit more of a dramatic/evening look I apply liquid/gel liner with a flick - thank God for selotape for helping us Women who haven't achieved the perfect flick manually! I have found when I've tried to apply Eternal Gold all over my lid with both my finger & a make up brush it goes a bit patchy? It's not too much of an issue though as I use this especially for my inner tear duct.
Maybelline claims that this lasts for 24 hours - I like to cleanse my face twice in that time, therefore I couldn't tell you whether this is true or not. Although I can say that when I have worn this all day, rubbing my eyes as well, it's still on there! Even when I swatched these I had to give my hand a good ole scrub to remove it. 

If metallic, shimmery things aren't your cup of tea I wouldn't recommend these for you. These are a tad harder to apply than powder eye shadow, but after some practise & once you get the knack of it they really are great! These are a fantastic dupe for MAC Paint Pots and BeneFit Creaseless Cream Shadows too.
These retail here for £4.99, for the price they really are on par with the high-end makeup that cost triple, if not more. I'm loving my Maybelline Colour Tattoo eye shadows, I'm actually gutted I didn't purchase these sooner!

Have you ever tried any of the Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo eye shadows?
What are your opinions on them?
