Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow in Metallic Pomegranate



My love affair with Maybelline’s color tattoo’s continues. It started with Barely Branded (from my US swap with Yessie), deepened with On and On bronze (review here) and continues with Metallic Pomegranate.
In case you haven’t gone there yet Maybelline Color Tattoos are a solid cream/gel eyeshadows. The consistency is creamy and smooth and melts on contact with the skin – think MAC paint pots but heaps cheaper. Quick and versatile they can be used alone as shadow, a base or a gel liner.
Metallic Pomegranate (or Pomegranate Punk if you’re in the US) is a pinky/burgundy with a hint of gold shimmer running through it. It works wonders with my hazel eye colour – really helps the green pop! It has a good colour payoff and a beautiful frosty/metallic finish. Wear time is phenomenal – no budging, creasing, fading or smudging... ten hours and counting.

They give an instant and gorgeous slick of colour. I use my index finger to work it from my lash line up to the crease, smudging out with a clean finger or brush. They dry pretty quickly so you have to work them in sharply and once they’re on, they stay on. I wore Metallic Pomegranate as a base colour at the weekend and build up some golden hues on top, it added a gorgeous multi-tonal dimension with some sexy shimmer. I really do love these little pots.

  4. I love this color for my green eyes too, but I think that this color is not as longlasting and pigmented as others.

    1. Hi Jules, So glad you like it. I can't remember which mascara I was using for sure but I think it was the Chanel Volume de Chanel Mascara - it's my current favourite. They're a review on the blog if you're interested. Thanks, Claire x
