Maybelline Color Tattoos by Eyestudio / $7 each at Rite Aid
There are the six new, limited edition color tattoos from the Dare to Go Nude Collection for Spring 2014. love the fact that they are all neutrals!
Top Row (left to right): Pure Nude, Stroke of Midnight, Sleek & Spice
Bottom Row (left to right): Nude Compliment, Caramel Cool, Beige-ing Beauty
From left to right: Sleek & Spice, Stroke of Midnight, Pure Nude, Caramel Cool, Beige-ing Beauty, and Nude Compliment.
Sleek & Spice is a smoky brownish taupe, with an almost metallic finish. Stroke of Midnight is a true black with subtle silver/blue sparkle, this shade is a bit patchy. Pure Nude is an opaque champagne shimmer. Caramel Cool is a warm bronze with a metallic finish. Beige-ing Beauty is a yellowish gold with silver shimmer, also a bit patchy. Nude Compliment is an opaque shimmery cool-toned taupe. These swatches are all two swipes each. Nude Compliment and Sleek & Spice are my favorites of this collection!
Pigmentation: I feel like the lighter shades are less pigmented than the deeper shades, but they are easy to layer and build color so it doesn't bother me. The darker shades have excellent color payoff, one swipe is all you need to get full color.
Finish/Texture: The finish on all six of these is shimmery, almost metallic. The texture on each shadow is very creamy, and can easily be blended with fingers or a brush.
Lasting Power: I have never experienced creasing or fading with Color Tattoos, they last all day for me. I wouldn't doubt the 24 hour claim on these, they are that good.
Packaging: Each shadow is packaged in a small glass pot, with a screw on lid.
Price/Availability: These are $7 each at Rite Aid

Maybelline won me over again with this collection of beautiful neutrals. I'm a neutral shadow fanatic, and this was exactly what I've been wanting to see from Maybelline. Each color will compliment any skin tone, and can be used to create many different looks. Plus, they are under ten dollars, which blows my mind...because I prefer the quality of these over MAC paint pots!
I love that Color Tattoos can be worn alone or used as a base for shadows. I often wear mine both ways, and once the shadow dries, it stays on for good. It's easy to remove at the end of the day, and never feels uncomfortable on my eyes. I have at least fifteen different shades now, and none of them have ever creased or faded on me. Maybelline Color Tattoos will always be one of my all time favorite drugstore products!
