Maybelline Colour Tattoos are simple one of the easiest makeup items ever. They're perfect for that 5 minute makeup, or for a quick swipe of colour across the lids. They're so creamy and blend effortlessly. I'd recommend them to anyone, complete beginners in makeup to the top makeup artists, they're just so easy and look flawless all the time.
Today I'm writing about one of my favourite shades that I recently picked up. Metallic Pomegranate has been on my wishlist since they came out, but everytime I went to buy it, it was completely out of stock everywhere. When I saw it in stock in my local Boots and noticed it was the last one left, I knew I had to buy it or I never would. I needed a berry colour for my eyes for the winter season, as all I owned at the time was berry lipsticks, since then my collection has expanded and you can see my top berry picks here.
This shade is a shimmery dark pink purple toned shade. It's like nothing I've ever seen before really, it appears to be different in each different angle the light hits it. It's just so unique. The formula is the same as described before, creamy and blendable. I actually love to apply this all over the lid and run it through the crease, and then apply a lighter shade on top all over the lid. It creates a base for the eyeshadow, and means you don't have to fuss about just putting it through your crease, which can be hassle sometimes.
The weartime of this colour tattoo is incredible, I can wear this to college all day which can be 8 hours+ and I'll come out at the end of the day with it all still intact, no creasing, there may be minimal fading, but I do have incredibly oily eyelids, and it isn't noticeable. I love that this is a shimmery shade, but it's not like someone's chucked glitter onto your eyelid, it's subtle and it reflects light nicely bringing more attention to your eyes. As you can see from the swatch below, this shade is very pigmented, so you don't have to use a lot of product to give an even base.
