Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo reviews and swatches | FloralsAndCoralsx

I do love a good cream eyeshadow base, don't you? The feeling of being able to whip out that creamy base from the makeup bag in the morning when you've slept in is something we all need in our lives; they are so quick and easy - I don't know what on earth I would so without them! Over the years, I have tried a multitude of cream bases, but I ALWAYS find myself reaching back for my trusty Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo's; being so cheap and with such a beautiful colour range, you really cannot go wrong! So, what better to do then share my five favourite shades with you guys?!

Who doesn't love this eyeshadow, aye? Everywhere I look online these days raves about this; it is just the most perfect bronzy shade to wear all across the lid on those days where you fancy quite minimal makeup, but it is equally as beautiful to wear as part of a bronzy smokey eye. Imagine a goldy Greek goddesses eye makeup, and this is what you'll see. Completely versatile, yet so cheap and easy! Can't go wrong, can you?

05-Eternal Gold

Again, this is just the most beautiful natural colour for daily wear. Similar to On and on Bronze, but a little more golden rather than bronzy, you may choose to wear this alone or as a base with golden tones (I love to use this with Tanya Burr's Hollywood eye palette - this shade is so similar to 'Gold Coin'). I actually only bought this a few days ago but it has been a firm staple since, as the shade is not only so natural but also makes my blue eyes pop! 

70-Metallic Pomegranate

This shade is very much one for the autumn time, although it does look perfect paired with other looks for other times of the year. Shade wise, I would describe this as a browny burgundy colour, with hints of gold shimmer. I wouldn't wear this on it's own as I'm not a fan of dark colours singularly, but with other bronze shades, this is just perfect!

65-Pink Gold

I would say this shade is definitely one everyone needs in their Spring makeup collection! This shade is basically what it says in the name - I would describe this as a light pink with hints of gold shimmer running through it. Truly gorgeous, and beautiful to wear with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette as this shade very much pairs with the pinky tones from this. My favourite way to wear this is all over the lid, with a little of 'Metallic Pomegrante' in the outer corners to darken it up a bit. It takes literally less than five minutes, but gives the impression that you've actually made an effort at life. Amazing!

40-Permanent taupe

This shade is completety unlike all the others I have mentioned.Fully matte and taupey grey in colour, this one again isn't one I would personally wear alone - this is, in my opinion, definitley the kind of thing you want for a smokey eye base.Saying that, this shade is still absoluetly perfect, and makes your eyeshadow last hours on end! Wearing this with a smokey eye really helps bring out the grey tones too, because of it's own grey tones within it. I wore this for my school prom a few days ago, beneath a smokey eye, and it allowed my eyeshadow to last all night long. A must have for all you smokey eye wearers out there!

  1. These are gorgeous shades! I got bullied into buying the blue one a couple of years ago but I just can't get on with it, I find it too slidey and creasy for my eyes :( x

  5. Have yet to try those cream shadows. Actually I kind of feel it would make my lids oilier than usual, but hearing it lasts hours, hmm, I might give it a shot.
