Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows: Barely Beige, Gold Shimmer


My obsession with Maybelline's Color Tattoos continues because today, I have two of my latest color tattoo acquisitions to share with you all. Barely Beige and Gold Shimmer were both part of Maybelline's limited edition, fall collection. My apologies for posting these up so late. But better late than never, right?

Check out these beauties!

Barely Beige: Semi cool frosty beige, with shimmers. Barely Beige was probably the most coveted color tattoo in the fall lineup. And with great reason, too. This color is just stunning, and so versatile. You can sport it alone on the lids for an instant wide awake, bright-eyed look. Or, you can use it as a base for your neutral eyeshadows to make them stand out more, which is what I like to do. 

Gold Shimmer: Medium gold, with shimmers. This is such a great shade for the colder months. The gold has an antique feel to it and it contains a lovely brown undertone, that gives the eyes a beautiful and subtle smokey appearance. The shimmers in this one are very apparent and they really stand out. I can never resist shimmer in my shadows so I surely don't mind the dazzle!

I am a huge fan of Maybelline's Color Tattoos. They are available in a fun variety of colors, and they last hours on my stubborn, oily lids (with a primer). For a cream product, an ability like that is pretty commendable, as most cream shadows start to crease on me shortly after application. These two shadows are lovely to apply. The smooth and creamy texture makes blending a breeze, and the pigmentation does not disappoint. Layering these is not troublesome at all so you can most certainly build up the color to your desire, before they set. 

Overall: I can't say enough great things about Barely Beige and Gold Shimmer. The creamy texture, the rich colors/finish, and the awesome lasting power, all make for a winning product in my book. I think both of these color tattoos are amazing and I really wish that they would have been part of the permanent range-especially barely beige, which I have been sporting loads since I first got it. It has since become a staple that I can't be without.

    1. I couldn't agree more, Jeneille! I am a huge fan of Maybelline's Color Tattoos. My most favorite one next to barely beige would have to be bad to the bronze. It's an awesome shade for creating quick, and put together neutral eyes :)

  9. I have Gold Shimmer and it's a lovely shade, though a touch too dark for everyday wear for me. Love Barely Beige - never managed to track that one down, though wish I did!
