Review, Swatch, FOTD - Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Audacious Asphalt

Spring 2012 is probably the best time to venture into drugstore makeup if you haven't already.
There are so many interesting products of excellent quality practically lined up!
Starting with Revlon Lip butter, we have L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows and now Maybelline is adding more heat to the competition.

I wasn't going to buy any of this new Color Tattoo eyeshadows from Maybelline (because I have already gotten many Infallibles), but this shimmery gunmetal shade called Audacious Asphalt is just what I was looking for and I was basically helpless after reading all those glowing reviews :)

In short, this is a great cream to powder eyeshadow with excellent staying power.
Supposedly it is a nice alternative of Make Up For Ever Aqua cream, but I wouldn't know for sure since I haven't tried the MUF.
Everyone is raving about this color tattoo shadows' longevity, but to be honest, I don't think this lasts for 24 hours.
When I used this without eyeshadow primer, the color faded away after 3 hrs just leaving sheer tint of color. However, it didn't crease nor was it collected much in my eye folds, which is interesting.
With nice primer, it lasts for very long time and the color appears more vibrant.

Audacious Asphalt is very shimmery and quite dark cool-toned grey that is intense enough to be a stand-alone shadow.
This is actually what I wanted my L'Oreal Infallible Sultry Smoke to look like, so I am very happy with the color. ;)

(I am also wearing Maybelline Eye Studio Gel liner in Sapphire here. This is nothing special except the brush comes with it is nice. It doesn't last on my lower waterlines. I'd recommend Wet 'n' Wild gel liner instead.)
