Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow in Light in Purple, £4.99 link
The Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo Cream Eyeshadows are a huge hit over blogs worldwide. They are probably the best drugstore alternative for MAC paint pots and they have a nice shade range as well. I really wish some of the shades and collections that have been released in the states make in over to the UK at some point because while the shade range is nice here, it would be nice to have some more netural colours to work with.
Today, I bring you a quick review and pictures of the shade Light in Purple. Light in Purple is a multi-dimensional duo-chrome like colour, and in different lights and at different angles you can pick up lilacs, pinks and silver amoungst the dominant blue base.
The gel-cream forumla is consistant with the other shades in the range, but I find the pigmentation and amount of sparkle/shimmer in the colour to be similar to that of Eternal Gold. It can pack a punch when swatched or patted on to the lid, but after blending you are left with a sheerer colour that can go a little patchy. I don't mind that too much because I use this under other shadows but if you plan to wear this alone, it is worth keeping that in mind.
Overall, I love the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, but this shade isn't my favourite. I like the effect it can give but I love shades like Endless Black and On and On Bronze just that bit more because they are great used alone and blended out, on top of being bases, whereas this shade and shades like Eternal Gold can be patchy when worn alone.
They are a bargain at only £4.99, and you can always find the on some sort of offer whether that be BOGO half off or 3 for 2. You can find the shade Light in Purple here if you fancy purchasing it.
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day
