I love love love these crease proof, long lasting cream shadows. They have great color selection and super long lasting staying power. On their website they claim to be “Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow. Our ink technology creates super-saturated color. Cream gel smoothes on for vibrant color that does not fade”
I have five of color tattoos:
35 Tough as Taupe: This is matte neutral grayish tope color. It blends smooth and stays forever. It is thick creamy in texture and very easy to blend.
40 Tenacious Teal: It is very beautiful teal color. This is a shimmery shade with tiny silver glitter. You have to apply it in thin layers otherwise it looks patchy. This is a great spring/summer time color.
55 Inked in Pink: This rosy pink shade is perfect to highlight inner corner of your eye. It has metallic pearly finish. It has very light creamy texture.
65 Gold Rush: This looks like liquid gold in the pot however when you apply it on the eyelids it goes on patchy. It has some gold glitter with seems to separate form the cream when applied. Looks perfect in the pot but you have to have some patience to apply it evenly.
200 Mossy Green: This is a khaki green color with gold shimmer. It goes on effortlessly and smoothly.

Tough as taupe and Tenacious Teal are from permanent Maybelline color tattoo line. Inked in pink and Gold rush are newer shades from their color tattoo metal collection. Whereas Mossy green is from their limited addition fall 2012 collection.
They can work as eyeshadow base or they are also great on their on. In my experience they are best applied with your fingertips and that’s how Maybelline website asks to use them. But you have to work really fast if you want to blend more than one color tattoo or blend a color tattoo and a powder shadow. They set tight within a minute. Once set, these babies do not want to budge. They last without any smudging on lower lash line too. If you want to get crazy with the colors, you can totally build the intensity by layering it.
These are absolutely fantastic cream eyeshadows. Nothing like these is available in the drugstore yet. They cost $5.50 – $6.99 depending on where you buy them and they are made in
