Maybelline is really bringing the heat with their spring collection and their new Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hour Cream Gel Eye shadows are freaking amazing! (Sorry for the use of the word "freaking' but man these are so good.) These remind me so much of Mac Paintpots. First of all they are very pigmented, and the color selection is pretty beautiful too, from taupes to emeralds, they've got a lot of shades covered. They feel very smooth on my fingers and on my lids they apply pretty opaque, and they don't crease at all. Now Maybelline says they last 24 hours. I can't attest to that, but I know they do last longer than 12 hours, because I had the "Bold as Gold" shade and "Tough As Taupe" on that long and they still looked fresh. Also, another thing that I I loved, was that these were so blendable. Cream shadows usually become hard to blend pretty quick after application, but not these. Anyway, check my swatches of all the shadows, by clicking below.
