Tenacious Teal is the first Maybelline Eye Studio 24-hour eyeshadow Color Tattoo I ever tried! I bought it from Olive Young store, one of the only drugstores in Korea I frequent to try out international drugstore brands. So here is what I think about it:
Product: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows- 40 Tenacious Teal
Claim: Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow. Our ink technology creates super-saturated color. Cream gel smoothes on for vibrant color that does not fade.
Quantity: 4 g (0.14 oz.)
Price: 15000 KRW
I bought this shade because it looked the most pigmented, vibrant and unique shade in the display of the Color Tattoos. I did eventually buy more shades but this is the one shade that made me want to try out the color tattoo eyeshadows. I may have never tried them in Korea since they are so expensive (15000 KRW).
Tenacious Teal is actually a vibrant shimmery blue shade with a hint of green in it. This color does not look TEAL to me. It is beautiful nevertheless!
I love the color, the pigmentation, the formula and the lasting power of Maybelline Color Tattoos. They do not crease on my oily eyelids for upto 8 hours (I have never kept them on 24 hours so I cannot comment on that claim by Maybelline) if I apply a thin layer and let it set properly on my eyelids.
I, sometimes, use this as a base for my deeper smokey eye looks. I love colors in the feathers of a peacock so I really love this shade. Despite it long-lasting power, the Maybelline Color Tattoos are easily blendable, buildable and work well as bases for other eyeshadows!
I have already bought a few more shades from the Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoos and I love them all. This one is my favorite for its unique shade! I will definitely try out other shades when they are offered at a discount!
