Maybelline Color Tattoo swatches (EU version)

After a long period of time - Slovenia finally got Color Tattoos after being already hopeless.
This was such an unexpected view at my local drugstore- I had to pick up some more shades.
I already had Timeless Black and Endless Purple.
So I picked up another Permanent Taupe (my 1st one went to my mom) and  Metallic Pomegranate.

I love them since the day I tried them- especially non-shimmery ones.
Permanent Taupe is my favorite by far- can be used alone to add definition to the eyes.
However I usually layer over eyeshadows just to be crease-safe.
They can stay on eyes without a primer and are still the best in longevity and colour pay-off.
I did spot small creasing if it's not blended out.
Only downside: they dry up- Permanent Black is almost 1 year old and it's already getting dry.

The texture itself is creamy and quite ''heavy''.
Nonetheless I really like them and they really make my eyeshadows pop.
I would definitely recommend Permanent Taupe and Metallic Pomegranate.
Metallic Pomegranate is a burgundy-red with wonderful gold shimmer.
Timeless Black is nice too - if you don't have a gel liner already.
Endless Purple is just too sheer to do anything on the eyes.

They cost around 4,95 € and can be found in almost any local drugstore with Maybelline.
If Slovenia got Color Tattoos then there's still hope for other EU countries.
You can also get them in various shades on Ebay HERE.

Which one is your favorite?
