Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Breaking Bronze Review

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Breaking Bronze


First of all I have no idea or official word if or when for that matter on wither the Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments will hit British soil. I highly doubt that they won't make it over to the UK but for now I'm afraid it is a waiting game. Should I find out any extra information regarding price or launch date I will update this post.

I do hope the Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments make it to UK stands as not many high street brands offer loose pigments - off the top of my head I can list Barry M as being the stand out option and I know that Collection used to do loose pigments as did 17 in Boots but both seem to have been discontinued or at least in my local Boots they have. There is also L'Oreal's Color Infalliable shadows but they aren't truly loose. 
A quick word on the packaging - it is basic, a clear sifter container with a screw top lid. Yes it looks and feels cheap but I have to say that the container is a great size for travel, it is sturdy with a an airtight screw on lid and a brilliant sifter - it doesn't tend to clog and disperses just enough product.

The Maybelline US site lists 11 shades in total but I wouldn't hold your breathe on all 11 making it to the UK, that almost never happens! Being the bore that I am I went for a typical me shade - Breaking Bronze but I did have a little play around with the other shades and I can safely say that the brighter shades are insanely pigmented and much to my surprise the collection does have a variety of finishes including matte, metallic and satin. Maybelline Breaking Bronze is warm toned bronze that has a strong orange leaning and is very similar to MAC Amber Lights, once blended out this shade does take on a more golden tone than it appears in the post. Breaking Bronze slots nicely into the metallic finish category and is a must for blue eyes in my opinion.

Truthfully I do find loose pigments to be a little messy but I am a messy pup to begin with but there is no denying that they are much more purposeful than a typical eyeshadow as you can wear a shade like Breaking Bronze on the eyes, buff out for a highlight anywhere on the face or mix a tiny amount in with a foundation or body moisturiser to add a golden glow to the skin. You can even mix this with some water or a mixing medium and create a liquid liner. As mentioned this shade does sheer out rather well but you can easily build it up for an intense finish without it caking or looking heavy. Maybelline do claim that this formula can stay put up to 24 hours - I can say I've ever worn make-up that long nor would I want to but yes when primed (they work really well with the Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow's unsurprisingly) they do last the pace of the day and on my oily lids it wasn't until around the 10 hour mark until I saw signs of fading but not a hint of creasing!

U.S readers can find the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in drugstores and Ulta - link
