EOTD: Maybelline colour tatoo in Metallic Pomegranate (+ short review)

Hello my dears! How have you started this week?
I've already mentioned some time ago that I'm really obsessed with finding the right wine eye shade, and I'm not having much luck. I do not know why the brands neglect this shade that I call "Bordeaux" and bring the shade always to much lighter reds, or bluer plums, but never seems to be the ideal shade that's in my head.
The closest to my ideal I could find is Maybelline colour tatoo in Metallic Pomegranate. This shade looked totally as I hoped it should look... under the store lights. But not in sunlight, or normal lighting at home.

But it's still a pretty shade and I've done a look with it I'd like to share with you.

For this look I used:

- NYX Above & beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion 
- Maybelline colour tatoo in #70 Metallic Pomegranate

- CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof  83 Cassis

- Benefit Bad Gal Plum eye colour intensifying mascara
- Sigma brushes E55 (Eye shading) this didn't do much good,  E40 (Tapered blending)

Now, just a few words on the Maybelline eyshadow: It was long lasting, so I do not have complaints in that department, BUT it was not the easiest to apply. In fact as I tried to pack the colour using the brush, the shade kept being swept from one side to the other, until I decided I was going to apply it with fingers and tapping movements, then it worked a little better, but I could not apply it as precisely as I would have wanted. It's also very difficult to blend, and you must work a lot if you like to smooth your edges, because it sets rather quickly.
I leave you a mirror-picture so you can see how the eye look played in the whole face, though I look quite tired, don't I?

So what do you think of this shade? Is this something you'd wear? Do you own this or any other Maybellin color tatoo shades? What do you think about them?
Let me know your thoughts!

  1. I love the Color Tattoos, I've got 6 (?) of them, including Metallic Pomegranate. But I never use them alone, always as a colored base beneath a powder eyeshadow.

  2. me encanta el color a ti se te ve bien, no sé si a mi se me vería bien, ya que aveces se me ve ese color debajo de los ojos.
