It wasn't that long ago that I read about this new product by Maybelline, called Color Tattoo by Eyestudio. On it's label, it touts that it lasts 24 hours. In my skeptical mind, I was thinking this is too good to be true, as these sort of things usually are. But I was intrigued and figured I would try a color out. The colors come in little glass pots and vary from light and neutral to very vivid and bright. I chose "Fierce & Tangy" because everyone knows that's a perfect description for me! Seriously though, I chose it because it was a lovely, orange color. I decided if I was going to review one, it should be a fun color.
I swatched the color on my arm around 3:00 on Tuesday afternoon. The color was bright, with good pigmentation. Then the waiting game began. I decided to take another photo around 12:20 AM. The color still looked great. In fact, I paid a little more attention and noticed that was a nice, soft sparkle to it. After that, I went to sleep. When I woke up the next morning, it was faded, but it was still there! By this time, I was already sold on this product. And even though I had made up my mind, I figured I'd leave it on and see what happens. I can tell you it was still on at 3:00 Wednesday afternoon. What's even more remarkable is that it was STILL on my arm when I woke up this morning, which is Thursday. Granted, it's very faint now, but it's still there!
