24 Hour Color Tattoo For Eyes

Posted by iamglamourpuss at 3:25 PM

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!

The 12:12 photo is under artificial light the rest are daylight.


With endurance testing like that, I decided I must go out and get the other colors I was interested in, so I went out and picked up some more.  I got Too Cool (a white shimmer), Audacious Asphalt (a shimmery, dark gray) and Tough as Taupe (a creamy, neutral taupe). What I like about these is that they are fast and easy.  Sure, I like to take my time and create some very elaborate looks that show off my skills, but it's not really practical on a day to day basis.  I am a mom who is frequently rushing around from place to place.  I love make-up I can apply and blend with my fingers.  It's an easy way to get a nice, smoky look.  Please take into consideration that the afternoon light was fading fast and we've had clouds moving in all day, hence the tone difference in the photos below.

I bought all colors and I mainly use them for Underwater photoshoots on models. They work sooooo amazingly. Good for a primer and work well with dry eyeshadows too, they do not crease. Just awesome.

See you there!
