The cream eyeshadows that I should've bought ages ago...

Seriously, why has it taken me so long to try these beautiful eyeshadows?!

Left to Right: 'On and On Bronze' and 'Permanent Taupe'

Maybeline’s 24hr Colour Tattoo eyeshadows are definitely not the new kids in the town. In fact, they have been the talk of the beauty blogging community for a while now (just ask Vivianna Does Makeup, Lily Pebbles and EssieButton). These eyeshadows have a cream gel formula and come in a variety of metallic shades. A lovely buttery texture, so easy to apply and blend, super pigmented and not a crease or budge all day- these eyeshadows are amazing. The eyeshadows themselves remind me of my MAC Paint Pots (Soft Ochre is a must!) but they are a fraction of the price at only £4.99 each. Yep, the Maybeline Colour Tattoos are seriously the best budget cream eyeshadow out there. I can’t believe it took me this long to give in to the hype and try these beautiful eyeshadows myself.

On and On Bronze:  This is the most gorgeous golden bronze/taupe shade with just the right amount of shimmer. It’s gorgeous on its own: I just sweep over the lid with my finger and blend with my trusty MAC 217 for a lovely everyday look. Or you can use the eyeshadow as a base for an evening look- the Naked 3 palette and On and On Bronze are the perfect match for a beautiful rose-golden look.

Permanent Taupe: I am seriously obsessed with taupe at the moment. So, I knew that I would have to invest in this shade. This shade is a really unusual taupe grey (yes, even though it looks brown in the pot), when applied this shade is more of an ash-grey with a hint of brown. I’ll be totally honest I really wasn’t a fan of this shade at first but I’m actually quite enamored with it now. This shade is perfect as the base for a dramatic smoky eye.

  1. Permanent Taupe is cropping up everywhere lately - I bought this years ago and completely forgot about it! I feel quite bad now, it's such a gorgeous colour! I might have to go rummage through my collection and find it!
    You need to pick up Creamy Beige too, it's perfect for more neutral smoky eyes! :)

  2. Oooh if you like this you must try the Bourjois 24hour cream eyeshadows! It's amazing how long they last!

  3. I have both these colours two and I just adore them, my favourite is probably on and on bronze because I prefer the bit of shimmer. Love the post! xx
