Maybelline Color Tattoo's: Bad to the Bronze and Painted Purple

At first, I wasn't really too interested in the Color Tattoo craze. But now I'm very glad I've jumped on the band wagon!

My first purchase was Bad to the Bronze, as it's a wearable colour that can be glammed up but still works as a fairly neutral look. I find it looks great with a black dress for a night out!

At a recent Priceline sale, I was hunting for Bold Gold but it was gone :( so I opted for Painted Purple, because it is a really gorgeous colour.

These are both beautiful colours! As you might be able to tell, I haven't used Painted Purple yet, except for this swatch! I found it was a bit patchy upon application and harder to blend. I researched this and it seems to be a common issue with this colour. That aside, I think it's still super pretty.

Bad to the Bronze has been used a lot since I bought it a few weeks ago, and the staying power is incredible.   I wore it to a festival (see my festival post) and it lasted 12+ hours on a hot day with lots of dancing. When I got home late that night, I was amazed to see that it had not smudged, creased or worn off at all. Winner!

I'm really glad I decided to join the crowd and purchase these. 
Do you have these colours?


  1. I have Bad to the Bronze and love it! It's great alone or as a base :)

    1. I haven't tried it as a base, thanks for the tip :)

  2. I Love both these shades! The bronze is something I'd wear every day. I could do with more colour in my eyeshadow collection ( such a neutral person!) and this purple looks like a great place to start.great review xxx

    1. I'm also a neutrals girl...took me a good 10 minutes of staring at the purple in the shop before deciding to buy it :) thanks for reading!

  3. The bronze one is gorgeous! Great for everyday.
