My darling friend Ella was kind enough to send my boys and I a Christmas page all the way from the USA and you can imagine my delight when I spotted this little beauty inside, Maybelline's Colour Tattoo Metal in 'Gold Rush'. Now I can't say that I had ever worn gold coloured eye shadow before apart from a sample of Sugarpill's gold shade so this was a real treat for me to get and with it being autumn and the festive season coming up I think this is the perfect eye colour for this time of year. The texture of this is gel like making it not that easy to apply with a brush so using your fingers is better with this one. To me this looks like gold foil when applied to the eyelids and it really does create such a stunning eye look. 'Gold Rush' has quite a frosty appearance and has little glittery bits in the formula making it a stunning shade for the upcoming party season. The colour is quite vibrant and very striking, this isn't a shade which I would dare to wear during the daytime, this is definitely one to save for nights out.
The wear on this is great, I'm surprised as I thought that the creamy texture would lead to it rubbing off but no, six hours after applying this it's still going strong, I'm impressed! I think the quality of this eye shadow is great, the pigmentation is fantastic and the shimmery to it really does make it quite unique and striking on the eye. It's one of those 'showstopper' shades which is bound to get you noticed. I'm so thankful to Ella for sending me this and adding to my ever growing makeup collection, she is such a doll! I haven't been able to find this product on any Irish sites but in the states it's selling for $6.99 which I think is a fantastic price for such a gorgeous eye shadow. I'm now curious to try out some more shades in the Colour Tattoo range, I'm intrigued by the shade 'Pomegranate Punk'.
Are you a fan of Maybelline's Color Tattoo's? Do you like the all gold look?
Stay pretty people!
