Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows - Revisiting An Old Favourite, Do I Still Like It?

Okay so today's post isn't on a new a new launch or the latest trend, I'm going to be talking about something that was released quite some time ago but that has remained popular over the years, Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Single Eyeshadows. I decided I wanted to talk about these cream eyeshadows after I rediscovered them in my make-up collection, I had almost forgotten I owned these so when I stumbled across them again I was excited to try them out and see if they were as good as I remembered.

These eyeshadows have a gel-cream formula, come in individual glass jars and cost £5.99. I really like the cute packaging and although I don't think you get a lot of product you only need to uses a tiny amount so these will still last you a lifetime.
I own three different shades which I will list below with a brief description:
On and On Bronze - This is a deep shimmering bronze shade, it can be sheered out to provide a really pretty sheen on the eye. It is actually my favourite shade and probably the most wearable. 
Pink Gold - This is another shimmer shadow in a pale pink colour, it is very pretty but probably the one I wear the least as I don't think I suit pink eyeshadow but I think if I sheer this out I could make the pink tone subtle enough to work for me.
Permanent Taupe - This is the only matte shade that I own and its quite a deep grey toned colour, I like to wear a tiny bit of this smudged over the eye to add a little definition on natural make-up days or it can be used as a base when creating a dark smoky eye.

These gel-cream eyeshadows are highly pigmented and apply easily to the eye with just enough time to blend out the edges and keep things looking soft and diffused. I think you get the best application if you apply these with your fingertips then use a fluffy brush to blend, you also use a flat brush to apply the colour but for quickness and easiness, I prefer my fingertips. These do set in place after a few minutes and have great staying power if your lids are quite oily or particularly hooded you may get a little creasing but it is minimal and overall the colour stays in place all day long. I love to use these as a simple wash of colour over the eye, particularly the shade On and On Bronze which looks great with glowy skin and a tan, it gives a slightly glossy look to the eye which is so simple and pretty. I do prefer powder eyeshadows in general but if I was going to choose a cream eyeshadow I think these are probably my favourite and now that I've started using them again I might invest in a few more shades. These eyeshadows cost £5.99 and considering the quality of the shadows I think that's a very fair and reasonable price. The pink shade isn't my favourite purely because I don't think I suit pink eyeshadows so I may give it away as I'll probably never work my way through the jar but the shades On and On Bronze and Permanent Taupe will be staying in my dressing table drawer and will be a favourite during the summer months.

What are your favourite cream eyeshadows?
