Maybelline’s Pomegranite Punk Color Tattoo cream shadow

MAC's Artifact is almost blackened. This shade is the burgundy-red, minus the blackening. Again, I see what others have commented on, regarding the less-than-ideal application of the frost-finish Color Tattoos. I had to be careful not to apply it too thin, or overload the brush. On the up side, the burgundy liners and cream shadows are out there, but less easy to find. It's nice to have this color widely available, and to all appearances, a permanent part of the lineup. (When I was purchasing this, the clerk was moving the Color Tattoo display from an endcap to the regular Maybelline makeup section.)

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.

I don't have my nice burgundy-red liquid liner…but this almost makes up for that lack.
