Maybelline color tattoo 24hr cream gel eyeshadow photos, swatches and rave!

I have a new love, and it's these new maybelline cream shadows!

If you like MAC paint pots, these are very similar, and they are less than half the price of MAC.

The color selection is great, there are many shades to choose from. I do wish there was a light neutral beige. All the colors are quite pigmented and bold.

First up is 'tough as taupe'. This one is creamy and very pigmented. It's a medium taupe color with a grey purple cast. There is no shimmer in it, the finish is nice and satin like.

Here is a look I did using tough as taupe as a base color:

Next is 'bold gold'. It's a medium burnished gold with bright gold small-particle glitter. This one isn't as pigmented as the taupe, but it can be layered to achieve the color you see in the pot.

And another look I did using bold gold as a base color:

These cream shadows really impressed me. The pigmentation is just as good as MAC paint pots or Estee Lauder double wear cream shadows.
The wear time is excellent as well, they stay on for 10 hours or so without fading or creasing on me. Some might find they last longer, or those with oily lids maybe less.
I forgot to mention that these also work really well as a gel liner. I used MAC 209 lining brush and applied the taupe color to my upper and lower lash lines and it lasted all day long.

My overall verdict is that these are amazing, and I want just about every color.

It's about time a decent cream shadow is available at the drug store!
