If you know me, you'd probably already know I cannot say no to a gold eyeshadow. It is my favourite one to wear all year round daytime or evening. The Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Gel-Cream Eyeshadows have been getting a lot of hype since they came out, but as I'm not much of a cream product lover, I decided not to give into the hype and just didn't buy them. When I stopped by the drugstore to get a replacement for my Maybelline Satin Brow, the sales assistant let me know there was a discount if I got another product, so I went ahead and did just that.
The Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Gel-Cream Eyeshadow comes in a pot and is a nice creamy consistency which applies smoothly on the eyelids. The product is easiest applied using your fingers, but you can go ahead and use a brush if you would like. I picked up the shade Eternal Gold which is a gorgeous golden yellow shade that would go with any outfit or lip color, and it is my favourite eyeshadow shade. It is quite pigmented so be careful not to go overboard in the daytime. The stay is amazing, especially in this hot weather. I've worn it to work and on the weekends and it stays for a minimum of 8 hours without smudging, creasing or fading away. With this eyeshadow, you do not need an eyeshadow base as the consistency makes it act as an eyeshadow base plus an eyeshadow.
These cream eyeshadows are great for the summer, as powder eyeshadows tend to melt away in all this heat. To be honest, I finally get what all the hype is about and I do not regret giving in to the discount. The amount of product you get for €7 will probably last you a lifetime, so I'd say it is definitely worth the price. It is such a great product to have in your collection, especially if you pick versatile shades.
