The Maybelline Colour Tattoos were one of the most raved about products of last year. They are compared to the likes of MAC paint pots and other higher-end cream shadows. I don't often see reviews or posts about the colour pomegranate punk, but I thought it would be an interesting shade to try out.
In April of last year, I bought mine at Shoppers for $4.99 (on sale). I've definitely been neglecting this product because (1) I like to use my fingers to put it on, so it makes my fingers dirty (2) The colour is not an everyday "neutral".

Colour. I would describe the colour as a slightly shimmery brown-cranberry.The pigmentation is great and primer makes it even better. I've used it a couple times as both eyeliner and eyeshadow. I'd say it works a lot better as shadow because it takes a couple layers to work as liner. I would love to have this colour in a lipstick.
Staying Power. It doesn't last 24 hours per say, but it lasts all day.
Texture. The formula is very smooth, but if you apply it with your fingers you have to be careful to squish the uneven little chunks. Using a brush will prevent this.
Ease of Removal. It's a long-wear product, so either makeup remover or a hot shower will take this product off.
Overall. Especially for the price, this is a great product. I really like the colour and the formula. I'm sort of writing this post as a reminder of why I like it and that I should use it more often. For now, I won't be buying any other colours because I'd like to use up the products I already have.
