Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate Swatches

Hello loves and Happy Friday! I know that I am not alone when it comes to loving cream eye shadows! They are easy to apply, you need just one swipe and you’re good to go and they are the perfect base for your favorite powder shadows. There are many brands that do them these days, but my hands down favorite from the drugstore are the infamous Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoos. I have loads of shades from them but my favorite for this season is definitely Metallic Pomegranate (or Pomegranate Punk in the US). It is absolutely stunning and it has been keeping me great company recently.

Metallic Pomegranate is a gorgeous burgundy red color with some brown undertones to it. The shade also has some beautiful golden shimmer running through it and I just adore how it catches the light and highlights the look. Metallic Pomegranate is a lovely cream eye shadow that could serve both as base or be worn on its own. I love swiping this across my lids when I’m in a hurry and just head out the door. This eye shadow deepens up the look and adds the perfect amount of color. It brings out my green eyes beautifully and it is so hustle free to use. I just pop some color on top of my lids, blend it out with my fingers and I am good to go. When I feel like spending more time getting ready, my favorite thing to do is apply some of my MAC Cranberry eye shadow, which makes the color more intense and deep. Both burgundy colors really compliment each other amazingly and they’ve been my go-to duo during the autumn/winter season.

As far as the formula of Metallic Pomegranate goes, I’d say it is great. I still prefer my MAC Paint Pots but the Maybelline ones are also fantastic quality. The shadows have cream gel consistency and apply really quickly and effortlessly. If I am going for more of a sheer color, I’d usually just use my fingertips but on times I fancy more intensity, I like using the Urban Decay brush that comes with the Original Naked Palette. Once the shadow is packed on my lids, I like to blend out the edges with my fingers as I find that its warmth really helps create invisible line. One thing I absolutely adore about Metallic Pomegranate is that it is incredibly pigmented. Really, the color pay off is amazing and a little product goes a long way. As for the longevity of this gem, well... Maybelline are pretty close when they claim that it stays on for 24 hours. Not that I’ve worn it for that long but once I managed to wear one of their other shades for 15 hours and when I went back home the shadow looked the same as it did that morning. Impressive! One concern many people have when it comes to cream eye shadows is the creasing. I am here to banish all your worries and tell you that none of the Color Tattoos has ever creased on me, even without wearing primer underneath and I have pretty oily eyelids, so this should tell you something! :)

To put this little jar of prettiness in a nutshell, let’s just say that I absolutely adore it and I highly recommend it! With all the Christmas and New Years Eve parties coming up, this stunning maroon shade is a must have and the beautiful golden glitter in it would definitely make you stand out from the crowd. Be it a dramatic smokey eye or just a simple wash of color – Metallic Pomegranate has got you covered for the day or night! It’s love and I don’t have a single bad thing to say about this beauty, it’s just wonderful. <3

Have you tried Metallic Pomegranate before? Do you love it as much as I do?

  1. Ah I have a few of these now but not this shade, it's so gorgeous and would be a great base colour combined with mac cranberry packed on top to really intensify the colour. Super gorgeous!

  6. I have it and love it as well! I also have green eyes and agree with you that it really makes them pop and I love playing up my eyes so that's a plus with the shadow.

  10. I just love this shade, unfortunately here in my country Maybelline didn't launch it and I'm so upset, I would love to have this one. I found it on ebay but the price (including shipment) it's to expensive, if I add a little more cash I could buy MAC paint pot :-D
    Have a nice weekend :-D

  17. It's such a pretty colour, I've got Barely Branded and Eternal Gold but Eternal Gold is too patchy and drying to use :( Good to know Pomegranate's formula isn't the same as Eternal Gold!
