Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review: Edgy Emerald

Guest Review By CSP Ballal

These creamy eye shadows have been revolving around the beauty world with great pomp and I have one of the most beautiful shades of the lot. The Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Edgy Emerald looks like a gorgeous pool of green and blue in a pretty glass pot that you just want to dive into ! Edgy Emerald  is a sea- green with a pearlescent finish- like a metallic teal if you may. It  is well suited for Indian skin tones, but i find this eye shadow is best used with some black or dark blue to mute the very bright opalescent look of it!  It is definitely a unique color, and one that if you are not used to wearing bright colors, may take a bit of time getting used to…

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows are soft and creamy and double up as eyeshadow bases, and eyeshadows themselves. The texture has been boasted about a lot- its easy to apply and blends  softly ! However It dries up in just 2 seconds after applying which means you need to hurry up Slowpokes !! If you snooze you lose, because these set  so quickly that you may not have time to blend. In terms of longevity- they claim to last for 24 hours, and on my dry lids they do last till the time i take them off with a remover.

I do find that this settles into lines on my dry lids which is not a major problem, but I can see my lid wrinkling up a bit.  However inspite of this, i do like the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows a whole lot- they come in a gorgeous array of shades and look gorgeous on the eyes.

Recommendation: Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Edgy Emerald is a beautiful sea green that looks great when paired with darker tones to mute it down. I highly recommend this shade for its creamy texture and soft finish- its a great 2 minute eyeshadow look for those short on time.

I have the bold gold and I love it. I love teals and turquizes, but I don’t know why I am never brave enough to wear them.
