Review// Maybelline 24hour tattoo eyeshadow

I’ve never had any positive feelings about cream eyeshadows. In fact after my first creasing nightmare of an experience, I proclaimed that one would not cross the path of my lid ever again. Yet, there I found myself a number of years later standing in front of the Maybelline make up stand contemplating that life decision. I read on pinterest (because pinterest wouldn’t lie to me..) that the 24 hour tattoo eyeshadows were a dupe for the MAC paint pot bases, and my penny pincher senses starting tingling ( they’re like Spidermans spidey senses but for make up ). They were on sale of course, so I dropped one into my Warehouse shopping basket and never looked back. Four shades later, I am a convert. Starting with the ‘tattoo’ claim, we can tick that box. They last incredibly well, even without primer. I have oily lids (yes that’s a thing) so for something to not crease is a huge deal. Rejoice my fellow oily lid girls, rejoice! The texture is quite thick so applying with a firm synthetic brush or your finger is best.

Depending on where you shop, there are loads of different colours available AND there are different ranges within the 24 hour shadows, including Metal and Leather. The different ranges offer a variety in finishes from satin to shimmer to metallic, meaning there are great options for everyday wear or glam looks. I also like using these as a base for other shadows due to their great staying power, and ability to create depth and dimension.
