Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Pt. 2



I previously reviewed/swatched Tough as Taupe and Bad to the Bronze here, so this won't really be a full review, just a continuation. I happened to see a few more shades on a recent shopping trip, so I picked up two more: Audacious Asphalt and Too Cool.

Audacious Asphalt is a charcoal gray shade with shimmer and a fine smattering (yes, smattering) of micro glitter, but there is no texture to it. This shade would be great as a base for smoky looks or even just smudges on its own, for a smoldering deep look.

Too Cool is a frosty, shimmery white. It is a bit sheer than the other shades I have, but it would be great as a base as it would give coloured eyeshadows a boost. 
 
These are great alternatives to MAC Paint Pots if you aren't keen on MAC prices or tend to miss the boat when new ones come out (me!), and totally worth trying if you haven't already.


While on the eyeshadow topic, I thought I'd share my new little storage unit (hello early Christmas!). I store my paint pots and various cream shadows in the top drawer (a few in the bottom as well) and my loose shadows (I don't have many) are on the bottom as well. The top has a little tray that fits on (it's removable as well) that I keep some of my current daily/heavy rotation products. I must say that it is a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I am quite happy with it. If anyone is interested it is from this seller on ebay.
 
How do you store individual and cream shadows?
