If Mermaids Wore Eyeshadow…

It’s not too often that you find a product that you fall in love with, without even trying it first. I fell in love with the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Light-in-Purple when I swatched it on my hand, and if mermaids wore eyeshadow, they’d definitely wear this!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Light-in-Purple

 If you’ve never tried a Maybelline Color Tattoo, they are basically a long lasting cream eyeshadow which can also be used as eyeliner if desired (though this one seems slightly too light to do so.) A few people liken these to MAC Paint Pots, however I am yet to try a paint pot so I can’t comment just yet. The Color Tattoos claim to last a whole 24 hours! I don’t think I’ve ever worn makeup for that long, but it does last a whole college day, and that is quite a while; 7:30am – 9:00pm.

 The consistency of the Color Tattoos is slightly moussey, slightly buttery too. The other colours I have are more pigmented than this however, once built up, the colour will make such a statement. Now just look at that pot. Look at it in all its glory, how beautiful is it? So beautiful, so so beautiful. It looks like a sea, iridescently sparkling and I can’t wait to use it. I think it will be a perfect spring/summer shadow, plus it will last all day! The colour itself is a light blue with and iridescent purple running throughout it. No swatch will ever do it the justice that it deserves!

 The pot is kind of misleading as it appears to contain more product that it actually does due to an almost telescopic glass effect. Although there is less that expected, it still contains a good amount of product for £4.99, it takes a while to get through a whole pot, I still haven’t yet!

 So there we go: If mermaids wore eyeshadow, they would wear this. So if I wear this I’m basically a mermaid, right? What products do you own that would be worthy of mermaids wearing them? Have you tried Light-in-Purple, would you like to?

    Woah that's so pretty! I love the Maybelline Color Tattoo's but I wish they were just that little bit more creamier. This is such a pretty shade, I don't think I've ever seen it before! Mermaid's would totally wear it!Sally ~ DiagonSally
