Maybelline Color Tattoo - Electric Blue

Today I bring you the last shade from Maybelline's Color Tattoo Metal Collection: Electric Blue! This is one of the brighter shades in the collection, and really the only colour that isn't a neutral or "everyday colour".



Electric Blue is a gorgeous deep navy shade with a high metallic sheen. This one I would really only wear as a base colour, because it can apply a bit sparse when it's blended out on the lid. You can definitely layer this to build up a bolder, more intense colour if you wanted to. I prefer to add a similar shade of powder shadow over top. I really like layering Midnight from Sephora + Disney Cinderella Storylook Eye Shadow Palette (reviewed here) over top of electric blue. This makes for a great navy smokey eye, or night time look!


As I've said before, I love the staying power of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos. On my lids, they last all day long. They literally will not come off until I remove my make up at night. I don't have oily lids, so I can't comment on the staying power for those with oily skin types. I apply these cream shadows simply with my fingers, as I find this is the best way to blend out the colour. However, when I use these as cream liners, I always use a brush. 


From the name Electric Blue, I was expecting a bit more of a neon shade. I much prefer a navy blue like this since it is more wearable and can be appropriate for either day or night looks. I also really like the simple packaging for Maybelline's Color Tattoo line. Remember to always store your cream eye shadows upside down, as it helps them to not dry out as quickly. 

Have you picked up any of Maybelline's Color Tattoos from the Metal Collection? Which shades are you favourites? I think my favourites shades are Barely Branded, Gold Rush, and Inked in Pink! :)


  1. I LOVE these, I have them in 3 colors and use them every day. They stay on really well and don't crease! I can't remember the names of the ones I like but they are browns and cremes!
