Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Fuchsia Fever is one of the reasons I decided to review each of the new shades separately. I dunno about you but I find Color Tattoo’s formula isn’t always consistent across shades and Fuchsia Fever is one of those shades that wasn’t quite as friendly to work with as other colors.
Take a look!
Fuchsia Fever is a unique shade. It isn’t a full on neon fuchsia shade but leans towards being a lovely magenta as well as a fuchsia combined. It’s a gorgeous color and will look incredible on a darker skin tone than my own.
I do think it’s worth picking up but I must warn you it has a very finicky application. The color pay off is excellent however, it requires plenty of building to enjoy that lovely pigment. My issue with the formula was as I applied and blended I kept literally blending it away. It just didn’t want to stay on my lid. I applied the color and built it up with the new Color Tattoo Brush that Maybelline released. However, I did need to blend it out with fingertips and this resulted in my bare lid showing and just general patchiness as I smoothed it into place. I think much of the messiness that came with application can be seen in my photos below as my shadow is a bit uneven and less than smooth in areas.
Needless to say it’s a temperamental color that’s truly a bitch to apply.
Overall, Fuchsia Fever is gorgeous but it takes a ton of tender, loving, patient care to get it applied correctly. If you’re frustrated easily with difficult to apply eyeshadow I’d say skip it! If you have the patience of a saint, go for it!
Any issues with application?
