Description: Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow is a waterproof cream gel eye shadow that comes in a little glass pot. The eye shadow does not come with an applicator and you will need your own brush. You will also need a separate eye makeup remover to take this off.
Sensitivity: Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow is a fragrance-free product and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow does not make my nose run, eyes water, turn red or burn. I have never experienced any sensitivities from using this eye shadow and I have never had any complaints from any of my clients.
The company claims, “Leather lush meets a creamy touch. Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow. This matte eye shadow stays for up to 24 hours.”
Discussion: If you have been following me for any period of time you know that I am in love with gel products when they perform well and provided they don’t dry out within a month of purchase. Gel products save time and they have great staying power, which is great for actors, models, and even brides that need to look good for many long hours.
In my line of work I have to create a lot of dramatic smoky-eyed looks. Gel eye shadows help me accomplish that task in much less time than layers of primers and powdered shadows. I rarely use Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow as a stand-alone eye shadow. I prefer to use it as an eyeliner, an eye shadow base, or even an eyebrow color.
Colors: Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow comes in a full line of matte colors as well as the shimmery ones. There are five colors in the Leather series, three colors in the Metal series, and seven colors in the Cream series. Today I am discussing Chocolate Suede from the Leather series. I have also attached photos of the other colors that are currently available in the Leather series. (They discontinued my favorite color, Matte Brown.)
Morning Review: Today I’m using the Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow in color number 95 (Chocolate Suede).
The company recommends applying the cream gel with your finger. I do not agree with that suggestion. Doing so will not only contaminate the product, but you will not achieve the best results. I suggest using a good quality brush. The size and type of brush depends upon the look you are going for. I’ll be presenting an in-depth discussion of brushes in a future post.
This is a thick gel. If you have never used one before, it may take some practice to get the application smooth. It will work the best if you focus on a small section at a time. I applied this on the upper eyelid up to the crease line. I also smudged it slightly under the lower lashes and I put some on the eyebrows. You can smudge this for about 30 seconds until it sets. You will need to work quickly because once it sets, it is pretty much on until you use a remover. I then finished the rest of the eye makeup using several other products (gel eyeliner, mascara, lashes, highlighter, etc.)
Evening Review: After eight hours, Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow looks the same as when I applied it without the need for any touch ups.
Because Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow is waterproof, you will need to use an eye makeup remover to get it all off. This will not rinse off with just ordinary facial cleanser.
Pros: This is an excellent product that serves numerous purposes. Maybelline Color Tattoo Color Studio 24 Hr Leather Eyestudio Eyeshadow can be used as a stand-alone eye shadow, a primer, a base coat, and eyeliner. The matte colors can also be used as an eyebrow colorant. It works as well as many other brands that cost four or five times as much.
Cons: I wish there were more matte colors available and I wish Maybelline would stop discontinuing the basic colors.
