Happy Monday Zombies!
I don't know about you, but my weekend went by way too fast! I hate it when that happens. ;)
Today, I thought I'd show you a few of the new Maybelline Color Tattoo's for Summer 2013. These claim to all have a duochrome finish about them. I don't have them all, but I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the ones I do own. I'm hearing through the grapevine that these are hard to come by already. So far, I've seen them at my local Walgreens, ULTA, and CVS. I'm really surprised the displays are only offering a limited amount of each color though.
A quick look I did using Seashore Frosts over Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer.
My two favorites of this group are Seashore Frosts and Blue Paradise. Seashore Frosts DOES have an amazing duochrome about it. And it does show up when you're wearing it. It's a lovely shade that lasts a really long time on the eyelids. Blue Paradise has a gorgeous pink/purple/blue shine to it in the jar, but it doesn't really translate to the eye, other than being a beautiful shiny soft blurple. Shady Shores is much more yellow than the jar picture poses it to be and it has an amazing green sheen to it! It's quite sheer, but would be great as a highlight color. Icy Mint is just that, an icy, shiny, light mint. I saved Lavish Lavender for last because sadly, it's my least favorite. While being a pretty shiny lavender color, it's sheer and didn't want to apply evenly to my eyelid. It also creased after an hours wear (I did not have that problem with Seashore Frosts). I love the sheen to it, but it does not stand out to me as anything special. :/
I feel like this collection is a kick up since the last batch of Color Tattoo's and I think the colors are light and fun for Summer. I'll have to play around more with them to determine if the other colors crease like Lavish Lavender. I'm pretty impressed all in all.
The Color Tattoo's range in price, but they are under $8.00 USD.
Have you been able to snag any of the new Color Tattoos?
