Maybelline's Color Tattoos are cream products which are meant as eyeshadows, but I love to use these as colored bases over my primer but under my eyeshadow. These are long lasting cream shadows as bases, which do great to intensify the colors of the shadows applied on top of them. And they are also great for layering different colors for interesting effects.
I have oily hooded lids …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Seashore Frosts #30

This is really interesting color...shifts from a light blue-green to peachy-pink with some gold shimmer in there...even perhaps a hint of lilac. Very pearlescent formula.
It's a little on the sheer side for me so I have to layer it if I want to wear it as a stand-alone shadow.
But I regularly like to use these Color Tattoo cream shadows as bases for my powder shadows. I layer …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Eyestudio ColorTattoo Metal 24HR Cream Gel Eye Shadow - Barely Branded

This is a sheer cream-pearl shade. It works well as an all-over sheer shimmery wash on the lids, or as a base for pretty much any color shadow. I like to layer Maybelline's "Champagne Fizz" shadow over this base as they have similar pearlescent formulas to them.

Because this is so sheer and not a very pigmented or colorful product, I wouldn't repurchase because I …

This is a lovely pearly sea-foam green shade. It's a pretty sheer formula so I wouldn't recommend this as a shadow on it's own, but it's great as a base under other green shadows.

I currently have both this one and the "Read, Set, Green" Color Tattoo shadow...with both being green, not sure that I need both. But it is a pretty color and works great for …

I picked this up a month or two ago. I love purples and so was really excited when I saw this dusty purple shade from the Leather Collection. It's an interesting shade...like a purple toned taupe...matte and kinda dark. I apply it with my fingers...it applies smoothly and evenly, despite the drier feeling formula, and is a fantastic base for dusty lilacs and mauves. I really like it for …Read more

This is a very metallic yellow-gold cream shadow base...but it doesn't apply smoothly and evenly but very flaky...like chunky glitter. It's a beautiful metallic gold.

I enjoy playing around with costume/fantasy makeup looks and this is very cool base to use under other shadows, not just gold ones, for an interesting effect.

It is drying …

I purchased this rosey-hued palette a few weeks back. I got really excited when I saw the palette in Walmart cause recently I've been interested in dusty pink and mauve shades and this palette looked great for it. I watched several reviews on this palette on youtube and saw the looks various people were able to achieve using it and all the great praise over it.
Well, that's all …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Expert Wear Eye Shadow Lux Lilac Shimmer Finish

Jun/24/2015

This is a very sheer light purple/lilac shade with a pearl shimmer formula. This might be more opaque if layered over either a purple base or a white base. It has a pretty shimmer to it and I think it would make a pretty inner-corner highlight with a purple lid.

I haven't used this a whole lot, yet...but NYX's "Frosted Lilac" shadow seems a lot more opaque than …

This is a really nice quad of 3 shades of blue and one pearly white. The deepest navy blue shade has blue sparkles in it. These are all nicely pigmented and are long-lasting over a good primer and even better if a light blue base is used underneath.

A very convenient quad as it has a couple light shades a med and a dark blue.

If you like blues, this is a pretty quad that …
