Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold

The Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold was one of those products I picked up as part of a 3 for 2 deal on a complete whim. The idea of a pink eyeshadow on paper is something which would usually fill me with dread but this pale pearlised golden pink is surprisingly flattering on my brown eyes. I suppose it fits in quite nicely with the rose gold trend which has emerged over the past couple of years however I think it's subtle enough to fall into the 'eternally chic' shade category.

I apply this product over my NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base either with my finger or a Real Techniques domed eyeshadow brush. I prefer using the brush as it deposits just the right amount of product more precisely. If I use my finger I tend to require a couple of layers to get the same amount of colour. Even without a base I find these don't crease until they reach the 7-8 hour mark - I have pretty oily lids so this is a decent wear time for me. 

All in all, I really enjoy using the Maybelline Color Tattoo shadows I've tried and Pink Gold has become my most used shade over the past six months. I wish we in the UK had access to the same colour range as the US because I've seen some gorgeous neutral shades I'd love to get my hands on.

The Maybelline Colour Tattoo cream shadows are available from Boots and other stockists priced at £4.99.
