Maybelline Color Tattoo: Tough as Taupe


After falling in love with the MAC paint pots, I can't help to get my hands on the Maybelline color tattoo which everyone says just as good as the MAC ones.

They're pretty much the same thing (for me), they are a cream eyeshadow that can also work as a base. So you can use them as it is or apply powder eyeshadow on top of it. I'm sure you all know how it works.

I wanted to get 2 colors: Tough as Taupe and Pomegranate Punk, but apparently the Pomegranate one is not available here, so I only got the taupe one.

Here's how it looks like:

It's basically a greyish brown, as the name suggested. I prefer to use it on its own because it is such a beautiful and natural color.

But honestly, if you compare it to MAC paint pots, I have to say that this one is not as good. It creases a lot throughout the day, and the color payoff is not as opaque as the MAC paint pots. I tried other colors at the counter, I was thinking to buy a few colors, but when I swatched it on my hand I didn't think the color payoff is good enough so I didn't buy them. But if they have the pomegranate one I would still buy it!

All in all, I would recommend this if you're looking for a cream eyeshadow to play with, as it has fun colors.

Price: Rp 59,000

  1. i thought it has a good pigmentaton since everyone ranting about it.
    but yeah maybe not as good as the expectation when it's compared to MAC :)
    a bit shocked about the price cuz much cheaper than buy online!

  2. I was shocked toooo

    Pigmentation is good for this taupe color, But in my opinion the other color (tangerine and blue) is not as pigmented as I thought :)

    I still think it's nice though, kinda like 'you get what you paid for' :)
