Another effort to make good on my promise to review more affordable make up products: today's review of Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze. After reading about the Burberry Eye Colour Creams over at Isabelle's blog, I developed a swift obsession with finding a cream eye product that would solve all my hurried morning worries in one dab-swipe of a finger. After googling some options, I ended up setting my mind on Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze (or On and On Bronze in Europe), which has also coincidentally become a favourite of Isabelle recently. Let me show you the ways I love this product, which has become a budget-cult-fav for good reason.
The Maybelline Colour Tattoo can be applied easily with your fingertips or with a brush, whichever you prefer. Either way, the result will be gorgeous in a very flattering, subtle way. The colour combines notes of taupe, silver, bronze and, on my skin tone, almost leans a bit pink depending on how the light hits it. Absolutely beautiful. But the best thing about it is that it does.not.budge. Like, I need waterproof make up remover and vigorous rubbing to get the swatches off my hand. The colour also doesn't crease on my eyelids, remaining just as saturated and pretty at the end of the day as when it was freshly applied. Bad to the Bronze can be used easily in a smokey eye (use it as a pop of shimmer on the lid with smudged out, darker colours in the eye corners), or all over the lid as a sort of MLBB (my lips but better) product, only for the lids. You literally cannot go wrong with this product, and I think it would flatter any complexion or eye colour.
I used it lightly here, but I just love how it looks: because of the colour looking different depending on how the light hits it, it looks as if I've worked with different colours. A lighter one in the middle of my eyelid, and a darker one in the ohter corners. This product is perfect for lazy mornings as well as more elaborate looks, and for that, it gets alllll my thumbs up.
