My Opinion: - The first shade I bought from this range of Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo is Bad to the Bronze along with Bold Gold. The Bad To The Bronze one, I have already hit pan as I wore it every single day back then. And according to me its the prettiest of all the 8 shades available, its a bronzy-browny shade with cool taupe undertones. Its a unique shade and I do not have a similar shade in my entire eye shadow collection. It was love at first sight and I picked it up immediately. This cream shadow comes in a not-so-heavy glass jar with a black screw-on lid. The packaging is travel-friendly and apt for on the go use. This cream shadow has a bit of inky smell to it but it's not strong enough to put you off.
The texture is soft and buttery which makes it easy to apply on my lids without tugging which is a good point. Its a smooth & creamy gel based shadow which needs to worked fast with. I apply it on one after the other eye so that it might not dry up and blending is easy. It does not dry very fast but still need to work fast. It comes with a brush which is decent enough to apply the cream shadow but I prefer fingers to the brush as fingers makes it much easy to apply, spread as well as blend the shadow with ease. It looks quite shimmery on the pot and actually its loaded with very finely milled iridescent and gold shimmer, you can see that on very close inspection. Also I found a few random specks of silver shimmer in it but on application it gives more of a pearly finish rather than a shimmer look.
The pigmentation is decent and a single swipe is enough to cover your lids but if you want more coverage, it can be built up for more opacity. Whenever I am rushing out which nearly always I am, I reach out for this color tattoo as I can apply & blend it with my finger. Then I need to apply just eye liner & mascara and I am good to go. This color tattoo can be used alone or topped with other shadows but I mostly prefer wearing it alone. This cream shadow once set, does not smudge or budge from its place. It did not crease or melt in the hot summer days, but my friend who has dry lids complained of a dry-wrinkly look after this shadow sets. It is waterproof and stays on my lids with a minimum (negligible) amount of fading for a good 7-8 hours. Removing this cream shadow is easy, you just need to wash off with face wash and water.

I rate Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze 4.5 out of 5. A neutral pearly-finish browny shade for everyday wear and will suit most Indian skin tones. It is my favorite go-to shadow whenever I need to rush. Although I have hit pan on this color tattoo, I still have much product left in it to repurchase. But I definitely will once it gets over which I don't think is anytime soon. Highly recommended for girls who adore neutral shades.
