On the HOT SEAT today is Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo Bad To The Bronze. These MAC Paintpot dupes have been launched in India.... *claps claps & whistles* .... Haven't we all been waiting to pounce on them?
This shade is actually called On & On Bronze in the UK, Bad To The Bronze in US & India. Why this is so baffles me! One make-up company can't be a team? Since they confuse & annoy us, I will annoy them too and say they are both not good names. I'm actually in a very good mood today =)
I decided to go with the name in India, coz this is an Indian beauty blog after all.
What it is: A gel-cream eyeshadow that claims to last for 24 hours without creasing, smudging or fading.
Bad To The Bronze/On And On Bronze shade: It is a metallic cool bronze color, with a hint of taupe.
On & On Bronze/Bad To The Bronze is smooth, buttery & blends very easily and evenly with fingers. It lasts the whole day without creasing on me. I'd test it for 24 hours, but it's not New Year's Eve, yet. Who wears makeup for 24 hours on regular days?
The color looks gorgeous alone and I have been wearing it almost everyday for over a week with just a kohl pencil & mascara. It can be layered/applied thickly for more opacity.
Comparing Maybelline Color Tattoo & MAC Paintpot below:
Maybelline Bad To The Bronze Vs MAC Constructivist
Maybelline Color Tattoo Vs MAC Paintpot
- Maybelline Color Tattoo is a tad more creamy & softer.
- MAC Paintpots dry faster than Maybelline Color Tattoo.
- Maybelline Color Tattoo's pot is slightly lighter in weight than MAC Paintpot's.
- With soap & water, MAC paintpot washed more easily than Maybelline Color Tattoo.
- MAC Paintpots cost Rs.1100. Maybelline Color Tattoos Rs.350. You do the math.
I'd say Maybelline Color Tattoos are definitely comparable to MAC Paintpots, and some may like Tattoos better than some Paintpots. [Hint Hint: Moi!] If you're into neutral eyeshadow shades, On & On Bronze/Bad To The Bronze is one shade to own from the range, ladies. Do check it out!
Maybelline Color Tattoo Price ~ Rs.350 (£4.99 = Rs.420 in UK)
Available in 9 shades in India. I want Edgy Emerald so badly, but it's not available here in UK =(. Might....might....get Tough As Taupe/Permanent Taupe (Grr....) next.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5
