NEW LIMITED EDITION Maybelline Color Tattoos (Review & Swatches)

Hello! Today, I wanted to share with you these cool new shades from the Maybelline Color Tattoo line. Unfortunately, they are limited edition, just like last year's very awesome color tattoos. But what distinguishes these from most of Maybelline limited edition color tattoos is that these are all matte neutral colors. Sounds very intriguing right?

Shade Breakdown:
  • Just Beige - yellow toned beige. The yellow tone in this is quite strong. If you have redness and such on your lids, this will definitely cancel that out. I haven't tried it as a concealer but I would assume it would work fine as that. This one is the thickest in consistency of the three but it's still blendable. It makes a great base and definitely helps eyeshadow pop. It's also great just on its own to even out the eyelids. 
  • Nude Pink - a dusty pink nude shade. It's the creamiest out of the three and so blendable and smooth. It applies so effortlessly. It's definitely back-up worthy. If you can only choose one out of the three, I would highly suggest picking this one up. It's pretty on its own or as a base. I also think this shade will suit a lot of different skin tones. It's great for everyday as a shade to even out the eyelids.
  • Matte Brown - as the name suggests this is a matte brown. It's a dark cool toned one though. It comes off as patchy when swatched on the back of my hand but once I apply it on my eyelids, it's not. Strange. Some people can probably even get away with using this shade as eyeliner. You can sheer it out or build it up to how it looks in the pot. It's great for everyday, special occasions, and for smokey eyes. I mostly like to use this one alone.

Also, these three do not crease on me even when I don't wear a primer underneath! No other cream eyeshadows can do that but the color tattoos! They stay on all day and don't fade when I wear them alone. This line in general is so awesome! And these limited edition shades are definite must haves!
I purchased mine from CVS. They first started showing up at Bed Bath and Beyond. I assume they'll make their way to Rite Aid and Walgreens, eventually. I've been to a few CVS stores and they all surprisingly had everything in the collection in stock. I highly recommend them. I hope you find them and get a chance to try out their awesomeness!! 

Until Next Time

Is it me or is the blogger reader not going away? While everyone has been converting to Bloglovin, me included, did everyone rely on google reader? Was I the only one who read posts on blogger reader? So, GFC isn't going away right? It would be awesome if you let me know whether you're reading this on bloglovin or blogger reader :)

Anywho, it's time for favorites. It feels like I just did my june favorites last week. June went by faster than I thought. Almost too fast. It makes me sad. But on the bright side, I've been loving some awesome things that I wanted to share!
