Maybelline Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon in Charcoal Chrome: Review , Swatch , EOTD
Hi All 🙂
Maybelline Eyestudio Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon is a part of US Maybelline Spring 2016 Collection and comes in 10 permanent shades. The one I have is Charcoal Chrome. The Color Tattoo’s originally came in potted version. I asked my bff to pick one since these were a new launch ( Ahem ahem) . Yeah this was the part of the US Drugstore makeup haul as well.
Price: $6.99 ( Varies from store to store )
Maybelline describes them as: Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo Concentrated Crayon has all day tattoo tenacity and playful colour intensity in an easy, glide on crayon. High-intensity colour keeps eyes looking vibrant all-day long, Smooth, soft creamy finish, Playful, intense colours.
Experience with Maybelline Colour Tattoo Concentrated Crayon:
Packaging: It is not something which we have-not seen already. Plastic body, Silver writings on the packaging, transparent cap and colored bottom according to the shade. The cap goes on a trip if it is not pressed tightly, followed by a click. Good thing is that it is a twist up type, no sharpening required.
Formula/Texture: The formula is thin nothing like the potted version. The texture is really creamy and glides on lids like butter. It takes few seconds to set, gives enough window to blend using fingers or brush. Also it spreads easily without getting cakey; I mean if you layer it.
Pigmentation: It is good but I would not say insane pigmentation. Also it sheers out if you blend them a lot, only and only if you blend it a lot. Best is to apply it evenly while applying it and just blend the harsh edges and the formula of these makes that possible. You can layer it or can be used as the base of the another eyeshadow.
Shade : Charcoal greay which has a metallic finish. It will suit all skintones. No chunky shimmers.
Performance: It stayed intact on bare lids for 6.5+ hours without creasing and performance can be prolonged with the primer. My eyelids are oily, but the shadow does not budge. To test I applied it while working out (My usual 😛 ) It did not budge, no creasing at all. With primer it stayed intact for 8+ hours and I noticed slight creasing only after that. But it’s not waterproof, I prefer non waterproof makeup so I am fine with that. Goes off easily with water or makeup remover without leaving any shimmer behind.
Final verdict: I love it. They do have mixed response how ever I feel that the darker shades fare better than the lighter ones. Maybelline Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon is a creamy chubby eyeshadow , which has a good pigmentation, easy to blend , travel friendly and pocket friendly ( When compared to the eyeshadow crayon available in India) . Sad part is they are only available in US for now I believe, also sheers out if you blend them a lot. Pick one up if you like and if you are getting it in original price and if you have oily lids. Let’s hope that these get launched everywhere soon at drugstore price, if you know what I mean.
I just dint get the Concentrated part still , aren’t all eye shadows supposed to be concentrated :/
Have you tried this? Have you tried the original Color Tattoo?

Waiting for them to launch in India… 🙂 🙂 Nice shade…
Hope it launches and hope the rates aren’t rocket high 🙂
I love the color tattoo collection. I have their leather collection from 2014. It was amazing. Great product.
I think I have seen that with my cousin. Yeah 🙂
Beautiful taupe shade but pigmentation isn’t that much. Love the texture though 🙂
Yeah I am loving the texture. Pigmentation is build able so I am okay with that 🙂
Good to hear it’s a winner for you!
Yeah I am liking it 🙂
Nice review. You are right, the shadow looks a bit sheer. Are these in place of the color tattoo shadows that they used to have earlier?

I love that taupe shade!!!
Same here Paola 🙂
Hey this looks awesome. i so want it right now :((
It is. Wish it was, I would have picked up some other shades 🙂
That’s a great color. I find this stick eyeshadows very handy. I saw this in some youtube videos.
You are right. Very convenient they are 🙂
Nice shade and texture 🙂 we can wear it in our office look also I think. What you say? Well good review as usual Swathi 🙂
I am really liking the texture. You are right, it can be worn, it’s very subtle with one layer. Thanks Anamika 🙂
I love pencil bases. I will stick to the darker shades.
Same here Simera. They come in handy 🙂
It seems to have a really good weartime ! I hope these come to India too !
It surprised me actually. Because the reviews I read said 5-6 hours!!! May be this particular shade lats longer. But I think 5-6 hours is great. I hope the same. There are some lovely shades 🙂
I love the look of these products! Personally, I haven’t tried any color tattoo before but the staying power of these color tattoos is telling me I need them in my collection!
Oh yes you need them. Need to try atleast one Neha 🙂
Your review has convinced me to try this one!! Looks amazing <3
Do try. Would love to know your thoughts on this 🙂
I loved it’s texture, but sad these crayons are not available in India..:-(
Same here, I am a fan of it. Yeah 🙁
I’ve tried the originals so the crayon version sounds like a good alternative too, the colour is lovely as well 🙂
Yeah, they make life easier. Me too love it 🙂
I really prefer these twist ups as the eye tattoos are a bit difficult to work with when it dries up in the pot! Great review dear! Waiting for it to come here!
You are right. I had 3 potted ones and they all dried , plus they were thick.
Yes, we want them here 🙁
Lovely EOTD Swathi! Crayon shadows are so In these days…. Maybelline badly needs to bring this to India 😐
Thanks Anurima 🙂
Yeah, we need them here 🙁

I believe it can be toned down for day time as well. Agreed, hope they launch here soon.
I so wanna buy it coz i am a fan of twist up eyeshadows. Have you tried the NYX eyeshadows of this type?
Such a detailed review Swathi!
Hey Soumya. Do try it, it is really great.
No , I wanted to but then the shade I wanted was allways OOS. I’ll trying one 🙂
I as always prefer the lighter shade and after blending in the colour, it looks good on you.
Thanks Nava. The intensity can be played with these 🙂
Great product dear!! 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
Loved the product, seems great 🙂
These r less pigmented than the pot Color Tattoos bt I like this stick format makes life easy.. well reviewed
Yeah less pigmented and less thicker too. Along with the stick format I am liking the thin formula of these 🙂

Thanks. Sure i’ll let you know 🙂
Waaa lovely eotd. Wish they launch it in India soon.
Thanks Dipti 🙂 Wish the same…
This looks great and I so wanna try these.
Do try 🙂
The pigmentation looks really nice. The colour I think would be a bit hard to pull off for me
I am loving it. No you can pull off anything 🙂
Thank goodness these are retractables 🙂 I’m excited to try these ever since you mentioned in your US haul 🙂
Yeah, I would have given them a skip if they weren’t retractables. Hope you get your hands on these soon 🙂
This is a gorgeous metallic grey shade. Wish it launches in India.
I wish the same Sangeeta 🙂
Another great pick by you. I love the shade on you. Reminds me of Audacious asphalt -maybelline tattoo. I just wish these crayons should arrive in India now. Thanks for sharing
Yeah you right Radha. Thanks so much, yeah hope they come here 🙂
I was gonna buy the Rimmel eyeshadow crayon but don’t know if this one would be comparatively a better option..
Great Buy 🙂
I have bronze one in Rimmel, MNY fares better on me, stays more an hour or so.
