Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo - The Ultimate Eye Base

The Maybelline Colour Tattoos have had my heart with their shade On & On Bronze for some years now, it sneaks its way onto my lids at least a few times a week due to it's longevity, fool proof application and neutral 'every-day' colour. 

However the one gripe I do have with the Maybelline Colour Tattoos is their lack of neutral shades, so when my friend Hannah went on her travels to New York I sent her on a mission to bring me back another neutral shade, to which she returned with 'Permanent Taupe'. Apparently it's available in the UK however I've never actually seen it in stores so was thrilled to get my hands on it.

I'd describe the shade as a grey toned brown which not only looks great simply as a wash of colour all over the lid (especially on blue eyes) but also works brilliantly as a base for layering shadows. Just like On & On Bronze the formula is creamy but once set doesn't budge and lasts all day (a god send during hay fever season!) so if you're lucky and manage spot one in store I’d highly recommend picking one up even if it's just to use as a base for other shadows as it works much better than any eye primer I've tried. 

So come on Maybelline, up your neutrals game and I’ll rush out and buy the lot!


  1. I brought this by accident once! I went in to get On & On Bronze but accidently picked up Permanent Taupe instead and I'm so glad I did! You're right it's such a good base colour and I totally agree that Maybelline need to bring out more neutral shades in the line! xx

    1. They're both great aren't they! Let's keep our fingers crossed for some more neutrals :) x

  2. I love these! I hope I can find the 'Perfect Taupe' shade! I'm hooked on the 'On and On Bronze' shade myself! But the more neutrals, the better! lol

    Lovely blog darling! :)
