Any time I a product that says it will work for 6, 12, or yet 24 hours I (gasp) actually expect the product to do its job and work for that long. Yes, I know I must be dreaming. The cosmetic world is feeding me a load of hooey.
The other day I saw that Maybelline had come out with Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow I was hopeful for something that would actually work for 24 hours, but let’s face it at least through the day! I bought Pomegranate Punk (shimmery burgundy) and Painted Purple (bright slightly shimmery purple).
I applied the Painted Purple color over an NYX eyeshadow primer. I did notice right away that the color started to crease. Okay, not good! So I powdered over it and then applied more of the cream shadow. This seemed to work better and the shadow wore pretty well throughout the day. I think that when I try the burgundy color I will not use a primer and see how it goes. Possibly the primer makes the lid a little too oily which causes the creasing. Creasing IS caused by lid oiliness, hence the need for primer. But cream shadows are different and you can get by without using a primer with them if you feel the need. I just like the idea of using one all the time. If anyone else has used the Color Tattoo product I would love to hear your results!
