Maybelline’s Electric Blue Color Tattoo cream shadow

This one…didn't thrill me. I liked Blue On By better, even with its application problems. I don't love Electric Blue's blackening, because it seems like most of what gets applied is that - the blackening, with hints of metallic blue. (Though if you want a smoky eye look with cream shadows, then you've got your front runner right here.)

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeliner tube or pencil barrel; top right, the eyeliner applied over bare skin, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the eyeliner applied on the eyelid at the lash line.

MAC's limited-edition Imaginary is also similar to this one, but in my opinion it does a better job: the color is a dark dusky blue, there's a faint shimmer, there's no blackening or “sootiness” to the color.
