One of the things I love about Maybelline is the affordable Color tattoo range that is a fantastic dupe of MAC paint pots. Available in a huge number of colors, these are really great for those who want a strong base color to stick to their eyes for at least 10-12 hours. I personally adore these and today, I am going to review one of my picks, Audacious Asphalt.
Rs.350 for 4 gm
Packaging: The packaging of this eye shadow is simply done. A round heavy glass pot, similar to MAC paint pot or Benefit Crease-less cream shadow, contains the product. The name of the product is clearly written on one side and the other side shows the color properly. That makes this package easy to locate, and very travel-friendly.
Texture and Application: The texture of the eye shadow is gel-like, which needs to be worked with quickly before it sets. Personally, I find it very easy to use my fingers to tap some on as my base and then apply other colors over it. It glides on easily, and can be made as sheer or opaque as it can be. In both cases, the color is a definite plus for the product.
Color and Blending: Steel grey with silver shimmers is what I would describe the color as. The pigmentation is amazing. One swipe and I could see my finger coming off with perfect amount of color to work with. I have to blend it in fast, because once it sets, it sets, and acts as a fantastic eye primer as well for other colors that go over it. It does not fall off, crease, and can be used both as a liner and as a shadow, with the right brush. It does not sting my waterline, so safe for my lower lash line.
Staying Power: The staying power is AMAZING. It does not crease or fade, and stays put on my eyelids for about 9-16 hours easily. That is right, 16 hours is the max I have worn this eye shadow and it was perfect till the end, fading just a bit on the edges. I had to use a makeup remover to remove it and I am super impressed with the staying power.
