maybelline winter 2013 color tattoos in matte brown, nude pink, just beige

The new Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoo's are probably the most excited I have been about a makeup collection in a while! High quality, pigmented, creamy, long lasting, affordable, these are about as perfect as a cream eye shadow gets. They are very versatile as well, easily working on their own, as a base for powder shadow, or as a liner.

Just Beige is an excellent light color base to bring out the color of powder shadow. The key to using them as a base is to work on only one eye at a time because they dry quickly.

Nude Pink is exactly as the name describes, a light mauve flesh toned pink. I love it as a base for both powder and cream shadows. It helps other darker cream shadows blend better. I could see this as a perfect everyday shadow for very fair people.

Matte Brown is a great everyday all over color, quick and easy. Also great blended into the crease with Nude pink on the lid.

Although they are long lasting, I do usually use a primer still. My lids are relatively oily and while they don't crease, the edges will start to fade and get a little patchy after around 8 - 10 hours.

Here are two quick looks to show how easy these are to use. Both are using finger to apply and Milani Eye Tech liner to tightline.

Matte Brown all over, no mascara:

I found these at CVS for $6.99 each.
