Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadows like their counterparts comes in a hefty bottomed glass tubs with shade details mentioned on the lid. The packaging is easily prone to breakage, so if you are butterfingers in handling things then these are not one of the best packaging around. The shade name is mentioned on the lid but not something that is standing out from rest of the details mentioned on the cap & one has to dig the eyes properly to read out the shade name. I wish Maybelline could have provided with coloured lids for more benefit. However the transparent glass tub is good enough for the shade location if you own few of these.
Inked in Pink is a cool toned mauvish pink heavily laced with tiny silver shimmers giving a high frost metallic finish. The frosty finish may not be a good sight if you have extremely dry lids as mine , so make sure to use a good moisturizing eyeshadow base to repress the accentuation of lines (if any). It applies very translucent on my NC42 skintone with a slight wash of pink (which is not much noticeable) & high shimmer. The shimmers are microscopic & perfectly blended into the texture for that high quality sheen sans any dislocation. Though these are supposed to be multitasking- eyeshadow, Eyeshadow Base & liner, won’t recommend this shade as liner. The shade won’t show up on darker lids.
It has got a smooth creamy texture sans being buttery allowing easy & smooth application and seamless blending. Is super light on lids & don’t settle/dry down too fast giving some time to play around, blend or smudge. Once settled, rest on the lids for exceptionally long duration without getting disturbed in/by anyway tuning into a waterproof & smudge proof formula post drying. The shade was fresh & intact at the end of 13 hours too with slight fading & I am sure it will flare till 24 hours as claimed. Removing requires little bit of effort with these & needs a good oil based remover. These Metallic finish Eyeshadows are a replica of Normal Color Tattoos from Maybelline in terms of formula except for the finish. They have extremely workable texture, good pigmentation & fabulous wear power. If you like high sheen/metallic finish eyeshadows give these a go. They are not released in India yet though!
