REVIEW! | Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze, $6.99 USD, is a slightly metallic warm medium brown that's *very* popular among beauty lovers.  I saw it at the CVS by our hotel on vacation and picked it right up!  I kept hearing that it's one of the best of the Color Tattoo bunch, and I was already in agreement after only just swatching it.  The color payoff is phenomenal!  It applies nicely opaque but can still be sheered down if you so desire before it sets.  And boy, does this one set!  I had to use eye makeup remover just to get it off of my arm minutes after swatching it.  I was really excited about this being someone with oily lids who usually has no luck with cream shadows that claim to be long-wearing.

I love this color.  It's such a great every day go-to shade when you want to up your game a bit without spending a lot of time to do so.
Let's not laugh at that 1 lash.  It's just doing it's own thing. 
So...did it outwit, outplay, and outlast on my oily lids?  It did!  It lasted 8 hours without primer, which is impressive!  It was still flawless at hour 12 with a primer.  In 89 degree humidity.  Color me impressed, Maybelline!

My Rating: A
Where to Buy: CVS, drugstores


  1. I have this one and it's one of the best cream shadows I've tried! It just lasts SO well! It looks great on ya <3

  2. Gorgeous shade! And good to hear that it lasts so well. My favorite cream eyeshadows are the Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color eyeshadows, but they're really expensive. Looks like this one would make a good and cheaper alternative.

  3. Right?! It's awesomely good. Thank you so much, Sunny! :)

  4. Always good to have some budget-friendly options that work just as well as their luxe counterparts! I've never tried any of Shiseido's makeup - and that needs to happen soon, lol!!

    UGGGH. 8 Hours , hey? Maybe I need to try these again! I couldn't get them to last on me before. This colour is so pretty on you!

  6. Thank you, peaches! Bad to the Bronze is touted 'cross the interwebz as one of the longest-wearing of the Color Tat bunch! If you do decide to try these again, I highly recommend getting this color! With primer, it looked flawless after a very long, stressful (I.E. oil-producing) day!


I love your comments! Thank you for leaving me a little note!
