I'm sure you've heard so much about the new Maybelline Color Tattoos ($6-$8, varies by retailer). If not, read on: They are the drugstore version of MAC paint pots. I'm a big paint pot fan as well as a huge fan of Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream colors. Both of the higher end lines offer cream shadows that stay put throughout daily wear. They can be used as a lid color or eye shadow base. Multi-tasking products? Major bonus. You can now get all of this is a drugstore line. Yes, go and get these. You need them.
Maybelline offers ten colors ranging in a few neutrals to colorful shades. Heres's what Maybelline says:
"Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow. Our ink technology creates super-saturated color.
Cream gel smoothes on for vibrant color that does not fade"
I picked up Tough as Taupe (cream), Painted Purple (cream), Fierce and Tangy (cream) and Edgy Emerald (cream)
Clockwise from top left: Taugh as Taupe, Painted Purple, Fierce and Tangy and Edgy Emerald
Swatched in same order as above
Since starting this post, I've picked up more everyday wearable colors such as Pomegranate Punk (soft cranberry color with slight shimmer) and Bad to the Bronze (soft bronze shimmer). I'm missing the Too Cool (white), Bold Gold (soft yellow gold shimmer) and Audacious Asphalt (silver shimmer). I use pomegranate punk and bad to the bronze often. Move over paint pots! These offer an easy, fool proof way to add color and the effect (when I applied with my fingers) isn't over the top, but work appropriate.
These will definitely pop up in some future looks (I need some Go Mommy Go! vids on YouTube!) For now, check out a vid from Maybelline:
