Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow (are you out of breath yet?) is a great cream eyeshadow that applies smoothly and wears for hours and is almost identical to MAC Paint Points. Like some MAC Paint Pots, they are not completely crease and fade resistant, but the wear time is very impressive. The initial colour is rich and pigmented and lasts without a primer for approximately 6 hours. With a primer or a layered complimentary shadow, you can magnify their vibrancy and get approximately 10 hours wear time.
While the formula is excellent, especially at this price point, I wish they had a better colour range. I find some of the colours difficult to wear on a daily basis but they would work very well as bases for more subtle colours.
Budget friendly dupes? Count me in! Here is to hoping they add moer colours to the range soon.
