Maybelline Electric Blue Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow
Someone Turned the Electricity Off
Maybelline Electric Blue Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a navy blue with a fine, frosted finish. When sheered out, it has a darker, truer navy blue coloring, while when layered more heavily, it appears bluer. Urban Decay Evidence is less blue. MAC Naval Blue is similar but a powder product. Chanel’s Apparition is darker and less blue.
This shade didn’t apply evenly or layer well. I think this product would work just fine as an eyeshadow base, but it’s not something that I’d use on its own as a cream eyeshadow. I experienced some very light fading after twelve hours, which isn’t the norm for me when it comes to Color Tattoos. It wasn’t much, but it was there. The consistency of the product is thin, creamy, lightweight, and dries down quickly but not so quickly that you can’t blend out the color if you desire. This is a shade that is very, very common as a powder eyeshadow, so I’d probably opt for one of the many navy blue eyeshadows on the market, as many perform incredibly well.
