Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 HR Eye Shadow in Timeless Black

I’ll keep this post short and let you know right now that this is a fantastic eye shadow. The shade Timeless Black isn’t to be found anywhere on Maybelline’s site but Amazon says:

  • Up to 24 hour staying power
  • Smooth cream-gel formula
  • Fade-resistant
  • Pigment technology for saturated colour
  • Available in 60 timeless black shade

Check this product out on Maybelline’s sitePomegranate Punk looks like a shade I’d want next. Ok, onto the review.

The Good

  • Pigmented AF
  • Smooth application which can easily be blended out and built up
  • Perfect on its own or as a base for a smokey eye
  • Perfect as a base for powder shadow
  • Great as a gel liner, has to be built up though
  • Dries quickly to a lovely matte finish
  • Very long lasting, keeps eye makeup intact
  • My usually sensitive eyes aren’t sensitive to this
  • Inexpensive

The Bad

  • Can harden up without use, has to be warmed up by finger or brush
  • Eyelids need to be moisturized before use if you have dry skin
  • Shade Timeless Black no longer listed on Maybelline’s site


I moisturize my lids before applying this shadow.

I use my finger or a stiff eye shadow brush to apply this to the outer corners of my eye and blend for a smokey look or to give powder shadow a smokey base. I apply powder shadow on top with the same brush. Or I use an angled liner brush, dip it into the jar and go over my lash line if I wish to line my eyes with this product.

Do I recommend this product?



Available on and perhaps at selective Maybelline outlets. There are many more lovely shades currently available, even if you don’t find this one. Check out Maybelline’s site for details.

  1. Hey 🙂

    Oh, I love the look of that Colour Tatto! Believe it or not, I’ve never tried one of these, even though everyone and their mother has!
    This one seems quite interesting, as it looks like it could be used as an eyeliner too… seems pigmented enough!

    Lovely post!

    Have a great day. 🙂
