I’m extremely late posting this because I was extremely late finding these! I was practically obsessing & was so scared I’d never be able to find them! If you search back on my blog then you know how much I absolutely adore the Maybelline Color Tattoos so that would have been a tragedy. Luckily I did! Keep reading to see swatches & review of the Maybelline Limited Edition Color Tattoos in Nude Pink, Just Beige, & Matte Brown from the Gilded in Gold Collection which was released in 2013.
I absolutely love these! They’re matte, crazy versatile, & shades I actually reach for. I always rave about these- the formula on the Maybelline Color Tattoos has convinced me to pass on many higher end options. Although I do have a few (I’ll be reviewing some singles I’ve picked up here & there soon!) I love these & they’re my standby. Long wearing, crease free on me, can be used as my eye primer…I could go on & on! These shades in particular are impressive because although matte they’re super creamy & if you work fast-ish they are even easy to blend! Winning!
Maybelline Color Tattoo in250 Nude Pink- A pink-toned muted matte nude. Excellent as a base because it cancels out my veins & discoloration without washing me out too much!
Maybelline Color Tattoo in 255 Just Beige- A yellow-toned matte beige. Also a great base! Nudes out the eye & is naturally, again, an amazing base! If you blend it out you can actually wear this lashline to brow as a base without issue.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in 260 Matte Brown- Cool-toned matte deeper brown. Love this as both a base & eyeliner! If you like gel liners then you’ll find this multi-use product handy! I really dip the texture & it is actually nicely pigmented!
Swatches left to right Maybelline Color Tattoos in 250 Nude Pink, 255 Just Beige, & 260 Matte Brown. I know that the Matte Brown looks patchy but I promise it isn’t! This is one swipe of my finger without any primer…because I think these function quite well as a primer!
Although these shades may not look like the thrilling shades you often see me rave about, these are the workhorses of any eye look! I love them as bases, the dark brown as a liner, or even worn on their own. I love applying them on the lid then putting something with great contrast in my crease. Simple! I feel like makeup mavens & beauty beginners alike would appreciate these shades. So what’s the catch? They’re limited edition. & I got to them super late. So I’m not sure if you’ll even be able to find them 🙁 For shame Maybelline, don’t tease us! Hopefully with all of the raves they will add some more matte color tattoos to their range!
What do you think of these shades? Were you able to find them? Are there any other matte, creamy shades you love?
