I’ve wanted to order this Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo ever since I saw it on Superdrug’s website but I kept looking in stores in the hopes of swatching it. When I still came up empty-handed I caved & ordered it online, I wasn’t disappointed..

 If you see this in store comment below so other people know where to find it. I tried both Sheffield city center shops & Barnsley too to no avail either.  I like that Superdrug give you free delivery on orders over £10 & it came within the 3-5 working days. I’ll write a little about that next week as some bits got sent wrong & they’re sending out replacements.

Chocolate Suede

Chocolate Suede is the third leather effect color tattoo to make in to the UK shores. On the left I’ve swatched it as is from one swipe & then how it looks blended out, you can get a lot of variation in shades from just this alone. On the right is Creamy Beige one of the other leather effect shades, the third which I don’t own in Vintage plum which I’m still on the fence about buying. The leather effect color tattoos have a fine shimmer compared to the original ones giving refection & stopping them looking flat.

I wanted to give you an overall feel of the colour & how it looks on. It’s creamy to the touch but as you blend it out it sets in place. I like to apply a little using a flat eyeshadow brush, synthetic seems to work best. Then blend this out with a fluffy blending brush to soften up and out above the crease. This took about 10 minutes to do, I blended it out as much as possible then used my Essence eyeshadow in blockbuster to define between shadow & brow. It’s a matte & soft so it blurs the edges, cleans any mishaps & is a good natural inner corner highlight.

I think these are quite easy to use & can create a whole eye look with just this alone. You could blend it all out for a pale wash then ramp the colour up later if you were heading out after work, its versatile.

After 6 Hours

Chocolate Suede Leather Effect Color Tattoo - NEW! - after 6 hrs


It was getting dark but I wanted to get a photo to show how it’s lasted over the 6 hours I was out & about. I think it did pretty well, all except for the crease where my eyes are hooded it seemed to get rubbed away a little. As these leather effect ones are drier I think they hold up a bit better than the originals. I wouldn’t expect them to last 24 hours but 8 even maybe 10 it could. I even think that with a finger you could top it up on the lid as the part I blended out didn’t budge at all. How often do you spend your day with your eyes closed in public anyhow?

As always the Maybelline Color Tattoos are £4.99 (they are 3 for 2 in Boots & Superdrug) however the Chocolate Suede only seems to be available in Superdrug online. Please correct me if you’ve seen it in Boots stores but I haven’t seen them in there yet.

Which are your favourite shades of Color Tattoo? I think it’s a tie between the leather effects, maybe I’ve come to like the softer more wearable shades as On & On Bronze looks very glittery in comparison? What do you think?
