Maybelline Bold Gold Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Just a quick review of Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Bold Gold.


Bold Gold is a gorgeous antique gold with some shimmer. I love using this one all over the lid with MAC Ash Violet (or Macroviolet) as a liner, but on a lazy day I can wear this one on its own, and I’m ready to go.

I can’t believe how much I love this product! I own all 10 of the shades currently available, and I hope they make more. It feels so soft and buttery, but once it sets, it stays put. I can wear this for about 8-10 hours with minimal creasing and fading. With a primer underneath and a powder eyeshadow on top, it lasts about 14-16 hours on me without any creasing or fading. I have not tested this for the full 24 hours because I wouldn’t wear makeup for that long anyway. My favorite application method is with my fingers because it’s super quick and easy, but you can also use a firm synthetic brush.

I wouldn’t say the quality is better than MAC Paint Pots or MUFE Aqua Creams, but I think it’s comparable. It’s a great value because you get quite a good amount of product (0.14 oz.) for the price ($6.99). Packaging-wise, I love it! It comes in a heavy glass jar with a black good-fitting screw-on lid, which makes it look more expensive than it is.

  1. I recently got Tough as Taupe and Bad to the Bronze and I'm already obsessed! I wore Bad to the Bronze all over my lid yesterday with bright pink lips and I loved it 😀 I wanna get more shades, like the orange and the reddish one, which we don't get in Europe! x

  2. Bad to the Bronze goes so well with everything. When paired with bright lips, you can achieve a quick and easy fabulous look! Definitely check out more shades. 🙂
