Maybelline Rich Mahogany Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Rich Mahogany is one of eight limited edition shades release for Fall 2012. Rich Mahogany is actually one of four warmer shades released and there are also four other shades that are a good deal bolder.

Dare I say I am enjoying the warmer colors way more than the bolder ones? How about you? Have you gotten your hands on all eight? Any favs?

After reading this post I’m sure you’re going to want Rich Mahogany!

Rich Mahogany is a rich, warm dark brown. This is very deep so it can be a little bit much particularly if you have dark circles, finer lines, etc…..

The color compliments brown eyes very nicely and gives them a sultry finish that’s quite beautiful. The formula proved excellent with a soft, creamy base that blended well. There is some patchiness here though so use a brush to layer color and to get the smoothest finish.

This has a softer creamy finish sans any major sparkle or shimmer and definitely no frostiness. I find the formula varies on Color Tattoos so I like reviewing each individual shade and mentioning the pros and cons of the color.

Rich Mahogany is a nice bold brown that should please those looking for a seductive evening look!


I purchased this item.

    This looks sooo pretty on you, especially paired with the red lips. That would be a great holiday look.

  • breyerchic04

    I definitely prefer the earthtones, I may grab this one, so far I just have barely beige which is nice but leans a little frosty for a shade so light.

    • the Muse

      I got the frost factor from barely beige too breyer! Love the other three though!

  • JenJ

    *swoons* haven’t played with this one yet but looking forward to it lol! oh *whispers* i did get a back up of gold shimmer *head palm*

  • Cindy

    I can’t stress how much I love this color. I wear it alone, and as a base for many eye looks. I’m so sad that this is a LE color!

  • Sarah

    That looks absolutely incredible on you! I must hunt this color down and “splurge.” (Life of a college student…argh.)

  • Marina

    Can’t find these anywhere ๐Ÿ™ I’m dying for the Fuchsia and Barely Beige. This one looks nice too, but I’ll probably pass…I’ll remain on the hunt for those two >:)

  • Simone Gamboa

    all i see here in cincinnati are the brights- every target has them…i cant find the neutral colors anywhere!

  • JoElla

    I haven’t busted out my mahogany one yet, but can’t wait to play with it.

    And from Target I picked up the test my teal. I thought the new blue was beautiful, but questioned if I would really wear it. But knowing me, I might pick up another brighter one. For their price, it is an easy way to bust out of my comfort zone.

    • the Muse

      I questioned the blue myself Joella, I purchased it to swatch but prob will never wear! how awful am I?

  • Susan

    Beautiful (and beautiful on you too!) color. I have MAC’s Constructivist, so I think I’ll pass. If I didn’t already own that I would be sure and find this one. Thank you for all your hard work with this Blog. I just LOVE it!

    • the Muse

      aw susan thanks comments like this feed my inspiration ๐Ÿ˜€ thank you! and thank you for the compliment! <3!

    I love Rich Mahogany! I’m wearing it RIGHT NOW with Bad to the Bronze on my lids, Rich Mahogany in the crease and under my lower lashes, and a touch of Barely Beige on my inner tear duct.

    I’m hoping my local Target still has Test My Teal when I go there next week. They had it when I was shopping last month but I didn’t think I wanted it. Now, after thinking about it, I DO. I will be heartbroken if it’s sold out

    Mossy Green has also become a favorite of mine. Now, if they’d only create a shimmery deep plum, I’d be one happy camper!

    • the Muse

      ooo nice combo! trying it ;-D I saw them at CVS too Twirlygirly so if you stop at CVS sometime soon check there too! Mine right now is gold shimmer, absolute love dat!

      • TwirlyGirly

        My CVS that only got five of the 12 Milani Powder Eyeshadow shades, and not until mid AUGUST (when the rest of the country got them in May)?

        LOL! Need I say I will NOT be holding my breath?

        • the Muse

          ugh that sucks….! I typically shop Harmons or Bed, Bath, and Beyond for everything lately because drugstores seem so slow getting stuff put out ๐Ÿ™ OR if it is out, it ends up being stripped completely down.

  • Tiffany Martin

    These seem like such great eyemakeups, and this color looks great. I notice it wasn’t muse approved, what held it back?

    • the Muse

      little too dark tiffany, had a little patchiness when I applied, so wasn’t completely hassle free ;-D I liked gold shimmer better!

  • harkbeauty

    I agree I am loving the warmer neutral Color Tattoo shadows that they have come out with recently.I wish they weren’t LE. I picked up Barely Beige, Mossy Green and Rich Mahogany. I skipped the gold one I felt it wasn’t a must have for me. I’m thinking of trying out the brighter shades as liner instead of a shadow.

  • Jaz

    UGH !! I have went to 2 targets and a CVS and I cannot find these!! Are they on a separate display?

      • Jaz

        Thats what I thought. WELP I guess I shall be making a visit to bed bath and beyond soon. I would have preferred if WALGREENS got this display instead of CVS lol. This would be a lot easier.

  • Brooke

    I freaking love this one, and I am DYYYING to know if the name is an intentional “Anchorman” reference.

  • robynleigh333

    oh, I want these so bad, especially the moss green color, I have been dying to get an eyeshadow that color.and i love love love these. I am going to have to search for these

  • Nala


    Lol sorry, but I had to make that reference. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I haven’t tried these shadows yet, but I’m thinking of picking up Mossy Green, or a mint green shade I saw. I adore cream shadows!

  • Julee

    I use this as an eyeliner. It’s my favorite! I wonder if they’re going to add it to their regular collection, or keep it as a limited edition shade???
