Something new: Maybelline Color Tattoo

11 Jan

You see what had happened was… I went to Wal-mart to buy some cereal, milk, juice & bread, yet somehow I landed in the cosmetics department. I think my feet walked over there on auto-pilot, or something like that. I literally gasped when I stumbled upon this display & startled the lady standing next to me, LOL!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel Shadow

• Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting color saturation
• Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant
• Ophthalmologist-tested.  Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

I bought three of the ten available shades; Fierce & Tangy 10 (shimmery tangerine orange), Pomegranate Punk 30 (pinkish burgundy w/ gold glitter) & Painted Purple 20 (shimmery purple).

These are the preliminary swatches…

My first impression is that the colors are very pigmented, yet blend-able & the formula is creamy, yet non-greasy. I haven’t used them yet, so I can’t testify about their longevity. I can’t wait to try em! Stay tuned for my review.

Dare I say, Claire’s cream shadows give my e/s more longevity than some of my NYX jumbo pencils! I’m talking 12-14 hours! #POW! Continue reading
