Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Eyeshadows Review, Photos, Swatches

I have heard too many good things about these that I couldn't skip trying them!
People were reviewing them saying it's their new favorite product, comparing them to MAC paintpots and even saying they're better then it!
As you know, I don't like buying many products of a new brand I'm trying, or many shades of the same product when I'm trying it for the first time. I like to buy some, try them, an then buy some more if i really like it.
It was no different this time. I've purchased only 2 shades: Tough as Taupe & Pomegranate Punk.
Tough as Taupe is a matte taupe. It's very smooth and pigmented.
Pomegranate Punk is a burgundy color with golden glitter to it, but not a chunky glitter. It's very settle and smooth. It's a little bit more sheer then Tough as Taupe, but it is buildable.

Since I got them I've been wearing them in any possible way: With a prime base, with no base, with an eyeshadow over it (as a base), and on its own. And they worked PERFECTLY for me in any of those ways!
It doesn't crease, It stays true to color, doesn't smudge, it's perfect as a base to prevent your eyeshadow from creasing, and also good as an eyeshadow on its own. [Below are the pictures of the eyeshadows when just applied, and after 8 ours. (They're supposed to stay on for 24 hrs, but I didn't really had a chance to test them for this long, so I just did for 8 hrs..)] I wore Tough as Taupe on the outer half of my lid and Pomegranate Punk on the inner half:

The differences in color you see on the pictures, are just because of the different lightning (When just applied the picture was taken under day light, and the other picture was taken under my room light).
The product is available in many places and drug-stores, for 6.99$, and most of the time it's even on sale! So it's also a great deal for your money!
The only thing I'm disappointed about, is that they have a limited range of colors.. I hope they'll make some more colors in the future!
