“High-intensity color keeps eyes looking vibrant all-day long. Smooth, soft creamy finish in 10 shades!”

Swiped 2x, you can see the intensity and pigmentation of these shades. All are shimmer or glitter with Bronze Truffle being one of my favourites. These are creamy and really, really longwearing.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Crayon Bronze Truffle 1

This is a simple natural look I put together just today, pairing a Mehron matte shade in the crease with Bronze Truffle on the lid.

I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance as a primer and the Color Tattoo really stuck!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Crayon Barely Beige Bronze Truffle Creamy Chocolate

Using the three brown shades, I put together this bronze metallic look. I started with Bronze Truffle in the crease, blending out with my finger (and you gotta be quick to blend because it sets fast).

I deepened it with Creamy Chocolate in the outer corner and laid down Barely Beige on the lid and into the inner corner. This was applied over MAC’s Painterly and it actually lasted through a workout and a late night afterwards! Very minimal creasing.

I paired this with Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara and BAM …lashes for days!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Crayon Lavish Lavender Lilac Lust Charcoal Chrome look

This one is my steely purple look using Lilac Lust blended into the crease and Charcoal Chrome in the outer corner.

I applied Lavish Lavendar on the lid for a really metallic look. This shade reminds me a lot of MAC’s Frozen Violet Paint Pot.

Another beautiful look I think. I’d love to know if any of the 10 shades of Color Tattoo Crayons are matte. Everything I tried was shimmer but I know they make beautiful matte Color Tattoos (I have a large collection of them in pot form).

Maybelline Color Tattoo Crayon review 2

Overall I am very, very pleased with this new innovation. I am pretty obsessed with both Color Tattoo and MAC’s Paint Pots, so this is a nice addition to my cream shadow collection.

As for value, these are 2.2g vs. the 4g pot. Although you don’t get as much you will appreciate the ease of application.

APPLICATION TIP: Use your fingers to blend out Color Tattoos. This fast-setting cream shadow requires a bit of warmth to create a beautiful diffused blended look. Using a brush will only frustrate you (trust me, I know).
