Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo
Metal Eyeshadow - 55 Inked in Pink


Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow in 55 Inked in Pink ($6.99 USD / 0.14oz or 4g) is a metallic frost pink. I reviewed Barely Branded here.

Packaging: [3.9/4.0]

The eyeshadow is in a glass jar with a plastic screw on cap. There is a foam cover on the top of the cap to prevent the shadow from drying out. The only criticism I would give this is that the name is on the cover. So if you have too many of these different shadows, it could be easy to lose track of.

Texture and Formulation: [4.0/4.0]

This shade is a little different on hand versus applied on eyes depending on your skin tone. Sheer this product out, it could be a light baby pink. To get the pink (almost mauve) intensity like the jar, you would need a bit more product.

Caution: If you spread this product too thin, some may run the risk of red/tired eye circles.

Application: [4.0/4.0]

This product is creamy and soft. It applies easily without tugging; both with fingers or brush. I have worn this product for more than 14 hours, withOUT a primer, with NO creasing!

The trick is to let this product set on your lids. It takes maybe 10 seconds if you pack on the product for the pigmentation. Those with oily lids may need a primer.

I have tried this as a base for matte colors, the frost of Inked in Pink does not show through!

This product is great for soft, first date or romantic looks! (cough Valentines Day makeup cough) ;)

  2. I'd love to see a FOTD with this color!! Do you ever post those? The color tattoos really seem to live up to the hype! It's nice to see a product like this with such wearable colors, too :-)

    1. Hmm...FOTDs are a bit harder because I can't get good lighting. I'll try to do one on a good day though! :D

    1. Sherri! I didn't know you had a soft spot for pink shadows! Me too! :D But it's ok, these shadows are not limited edition, so they can wait! :)

  4. Wow, I would've passed this up had it not been for your swatches. I have the metallic blue which I love, but this would make a great base for any spring eye look.
