Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo: Edgy Emerald
I’m sure a good portion of you all have heard about this awesome new product from Maybelline- their Color Tattoos. I got my first ones a few weeks back, and have been super impressed! I currently have four (more reviews to follow!) but I wanted to share this one first, and show photos on my test to see how long it actually would last :)
Edge Emerald is a light sea foam green with gold sparkles. The color can be applied thinly to get a nice, sheer green, or a bit heavier to get an even, opaque shade.
The main thing I was concerned about with these is the wear time. I know a lot of products love to put ~24 hour wear!~ on their products, but could this live up to that? I had heard great reviews, but I really wanted to see for myself.
Right after applying Color Tattoo (This seems a bit lighter than the rest of the photos and more yellow, and its because it was taken in front of my light-up mirror. The shades do not get darker overtime, as they may look from these photos!) This test was done with no primer underneath either!
4 Hours after applying
9 Hours after applying
16 Hours after applying (and sleeping!)
You can see from the test photos- my real problem was that mascara! Too bad I can’t remember what it was :) I should also mention I washed my face with this stuff, and constantly forgot I had it on and rubbed my eyes- didn’t budge! This stuff is awesome. It really impressed me, and I totally plan on getting more! Granted, no, I didn’t wear this for the FULL 24 hours, but I think 16 hours is a pretty good test point!
Available for around $7 at drugstores.
