Drugstore Finds: Maybelline Color Tattoos

Maybelline Color Tattoos - Audacious Asphalt, Bad to the Bronze, Tough as Taupe

I’ve been wearing a few Maybelline Color Tattoos for a while now, and I realized that I hadn’t shared them with you guys yet. I have three colors: Audacious Asphalt, Bad to the Bronze, and Tough as Taupe.

It’s the kind of product that has been raved about so many times that I can’t say anything new about it anymore, really. I suppose that’s a good thing? These are essentially cream eyeshadows that you can wear on their own or as a base for other eye products.

These go on very smoothly and are incredibly waterproof and crease-proof. I seriously went for a swim with Bad to the Bronze on my eyelids and it did not budge.

These babies are such a great budget product, though a con I think would be that some of them dry out pretty quickly. If you can see my pot of Tough as Taupe up there, you’d see the product separating from the glass, so that’s not a good thing. It’s still a great thing to try out, though, if you’re in search of a good cream eyeshadow and aren’t that keen on spending more for higher end brands.

I definitely like these more than other drugstore cream eyeshadows like essence’s, though it’s too bad that they are not cruelty-free. I haven’t purchased any more colors because of that.


  1. Got the chance to try these because my cousin has them and damn they REALLY stay on. Part of the reason why I don’t proactively buy Maybelline as well is because it’s not CF and the brand isn’t really good to me sometimes.

    I’ll stick to my Too Faced Lockdown cream eyeshadows which I think are a similar texture except its containers.

    • Me neither. I bought these prior to my shift towards more cruelty-free products and its a shame that they aren’t because I actually like a lot of their products.

      Thanks for the rec

  2. I got 7 of these and I agree of their staying powers. I don’t plan to buy anymore because it is also not available locally and I have a lot already. 🙂

  3. I love these! I’ve been wanting to get Tough as Taupe but it’s always sold out online. Bad to the Bronze is such a good color for daily wear (lalo on tamad days lol).

  4. The shades are really pretty and they seem quite easy to use, in a one-swipe-and-go manner. 🙂
