Maybelline: 24 Hour Color Tattoo Eyeshadows!

Hey ya'll! So here are some swatches of the new Color Tattoos by Maybelline. I know these are the hot ticket right now and to be honest...they deserve to be!!

These are soooo similar to MAC paint pots it's unreal, except they're MUCH more affordable! I have 3 MAC paint pots and they retail at $16.50 and the specialty ones are $18.50. The Color Tattoos range from $5-$10 depending on where you get them (WalMart sells them for around $5.88). I love these. They don't crease, they last forever and the color pay off is amazing. They blend easily and you can wear them on their own in all their glory or you can add eyeshadow to really make the colors pop and last much longer!

Okay so now on to the swatches. I don't have every single one of them but I have most of them!

 Colors from left to right: Tenacious Teal - shimmer; Pomegranate Punk - shimmer; Audacious Asphalt - shimmer; Edgy Emerald - shimmer; Bad to the Bronze - shimmer; Tough as Taupe - matte; Too Cool - shimmer.

These are on my arm with NO primer and NO flash! All are shimmers except one. A side note...I still have these on my arm because I went to wipe them off and yeah...they're not budging! I've worn a few of these already and I will say that WITH eyeshadow they last longer throughout the day. Also, make sure you use eye makeup remover cause I tried just washing them off my eyes at the end of the day and again...they don't budge.

Overall grade: A+++
Maybelline is really doing an awesome job with their makeup. To be able to compare a drugstore product to a high end product almost to a tee, doesn't always come easy because there are always differences. I will say that MAC has a lot more colors to choose from but if Maybelline continues to sell these like they are...I see them making many more colors in the future!
