Maybelline released Color Tattoos which are cream eyeshadows in some of the prettiest colors ever! These can be found at any drug store and I purchased mine at Walmart. They retail for $6.99 in store and a lot of the time they are on sale. The colours I own are: Pomegranate Punk, Painted Purple, and Bold Gold. They can be applied with your fingers or a brush and can be used either as a base under eyeshadows to make the colours pop, or used all alone to provide a beautiful wash over the eye.

- Pomegranate punk: Is a red based burgundy color with a little bit of shimmer in it (not overbearing) it applies smoothly on the eye and lasts for hours with no re application needed. It is quite pigmented as well!
- Painted purple: Is a violet/blue/purple that has a hint of sparkle within it. It also applies smoothly but sometimes as you apply you will notice little gaps so may need to layer it to get the desired look. Although I don't believe it preforms well on its own I love it as a base when I am wearing purple eyeshadows because it makes them pop! It also lasts very long on the eye.
- Bold Gold: is a dark gold and is extremely shimmery. I would say it is my least favourite out of the ones I own because the shimmer looks a bit harsh on the eye. The consistency is a bit lumpy as well, but works pretty good as a base under a gold eyeshadow (and thats how I use it because it will not be going to waste)

All in all there are a few more shades I will be picking up. These are reasonably priced and easy to get at all drug stores I have been to. I think a must try for anyone who loves eyeshadow.Have you tried out any of these shadows? Are there any colours that you think I need to try and am sleeping on? Comment below! Also any simular products you recommend?
