Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe - Review

Hello friends,

Have you heard of the ancient love stories where people fall in love only based on what they have heard about each other? I fell in love with Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe in a similar fashion. I have never used it but I always wanted to get it. And I did not just stop with the “want” I also ended up trying various ways and means to get hold of. Whenever I tried to get it from ebay, the exorbitant price always held my hand.

Finally my sweet friend Nisha got it for me. I was elated. And even after she got it for me, our meet-ups kept getting cancelled again and again in a frustrating manner and finally Nisha came near my home and gave it to me.

Price: $5.24 at amazon.com

The moment I swatched it, I fell in love with the color, texture and just about everything. It is a rich taupe color with a hint of grey tones to it.

I use it for multiple purposes.
As an eyeshadow and as a base for my eyeshadows
For filling my brows.

As an eyeshadow and as a base:

When used as an eye shadow, it looks slightly darker than my skin color making it perfect for office.

It makes a wonderful base for darker colors. I love applying it on my lower lash line and going over it with a dark matte black eyeshadow. The eyeshadow stays put throughout the day.

The texture feels smooth and creamier than the color tattoo e/s's i have. It is not too difficult to blend. You need to be quick. Since it is not a metallic color, it looks unforgiving when left without proper blending. 

I use a flat eyeshadow brush for precise application and I use my finger when I use it as a base.

I find it unreasonable to compare it with MAC's Paint pots. Comparatively, it is more difficult to blend and little stiff. 

If you have darkness or dark circles you must neutralize and conceal it before trying this out as due to the grayness, it tends to make the dark circles appear even darker.

For filling my brows:

One day, I was unable to find my Inglot brow gel for taming my wild brows. But as I could not find it and was running out of time, I grabbed this and filled my brows with it. It looked completely natural and my brows stayed in place throughout the day. As I have thick brows I don’t feel the need to go over it with a dark brown eyeshadow. But if you have gaps, you can use a dark brown eye shadow on the areas after going with the tough as taupe.

I use kryolan or vega’s angled brush for the same.

Pros: Beautiful natural looking color and nice texture, Great eye shadow base, Long staying, crease proof, smudge proof, great for filling my brows
Cons: Availability and tends to emphasize the dark circles due to presence of grey tone.

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
4/5

It is a good multi-purpose product if you can get hold of it. I really wish Maybelline would launch all the shades across the globe. Launching all shades in some countries and depriving another country which is in fact one of the greatest consumers of Health and Beauty products seems to be little unfair.

Hope you girls liked the review. Do not forget to comment! :D

Love,
Raji
