Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Turquoise Forever Review & Swatches

I have been looking for cream eyeshadows in a few different colours. Don't get me wrong, I love MAC paint pots, however they don't have many colours in their collection.

I then discovered the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr eyeshadows and i thought why not give them a try. I was immediately drawn to the turquoise shade, as i didn't have any cream eyeshadows in that particular colour.

The colour is an intense, vivid turquoise and comes out exactly how it is in the pot. On application it does tend to dry very quickly, so you have to work with the product before it dries. I tend to apply it with my fingers and do one eye at a time.

The pigmentation of this product is awesome! I was impressed that a drug store brand delivered such a highly pigmented product.

It stays put on your lids throughout the entire day and does not seem to crease, unlike other cream eyeshadows. When this says 24 hr, they weren't joking! The colour stays vibrant and doesn't even fade! As it dries waterproof, you will need a good waterproof eye makeup remover to take this off at the end of the day.

I personally can not comment on the 24 hr claim as i have never worn my makeup for 24 hours straight! In my personal opinion i don't think it's good for the skin to wear makeup for that long. Even on long haul flights, i tend not to wear any makeup.

The quality is incredible and the price you pay just tops that. I purchased mine from Boots at £4.99. I will be looking into purchasing a few more shades as i am impressed with the product and longevity.

Maybelline products can be purchased from Boots and Superdrug stores.


  1. I bought several of these including this shade, the pomegranate & taupe one. This one was my least favorite, unfortunately :-( It was far too stiff to work with. The taupe & pomegranate I found much easier to work with, although I really prefer Avon's Glazewear cream shadows, believe it or not. They're incredibly cheap, are very easy to work with, very easy to use sheer or full coverage, and work incredibly under powder shadows. The new Avon shadow sticks, big fat chubby pencils, are also amazing. Can't believe I'm saying this about Avon products! LOL

  2. I have about 8 of them and love love love them! Just got like a frosted mint and in love but the Barely beige is my everyday go to, out the door product for the eyes. Gonna check out the AVON products-thanks.
