New Maybelline Color Tattoos! Limited Edition!

As soon as I heard that  Maybelline was coming out with new limited edition Color Tattoos, I started searching EVERYWHERE for them! Last Friday I finally found the neutral colors at Walgreens, so today I am going to review all of the new shades for their fall collection.


If you haven't heard about this product yet, this is a cream eyeshadow that is long lasting. You can wear it as a base under powder eyeshadows or use them alone. I have a full review on the other shades HERE. These are usually priced from $5-$7 and can be found at drugstores. 

Here are some closer up pictures:

And here is Barley Beige and Gold Shimmer

Here are swatches of all of the shades:
From left to right: Gold Shimmer, Rich Mahogany, Mossy Green, and Barley Beige.

So, now I will tell you a little bit of information about each shade:

-Gold Shimmer: Just like the name says, this is a shimmery gold shade. There are two Color Tattoos from Maybelline's original line called Bold Gold and Bad to the Bronze, and to me this looks almost like a mixture of the two! This shade is smooth, and easy to blend just like most of the original ones.

-Rich Mahogany: This shade is a very deep brown, and it seems to have some reddish undertones. This one has the least amount of shimmer, but it still does have a shiny, metallic appearance. 

-Mossy Green: This shade is a forest green with gold shimmer particles. Also you can see the gold shimmer particles on the skin pretty well. This is my favorite out of all of these because I like this color the best.

-Barley Beige:This color is a light tan color with tiny gold shimmer particles. This is a nice skin tone base for many people, and it can make other eyeshadows stand out when used as a base for powder shadows. It also seems to be a dupe for Mac's Bare Study Paint Pot. 

All of these shades are similar in consistency to most of the original shades. To me it seems like the more shimmer a shade is the easier it is to blend, but I still have no trouble blending out the shades that aren't super shimmery. They also all have good color pay-off. The swatches are only one swipe of the product. I think these colors are perfect for fall. If you want them you need to act soon because they are limited edition! 

I hope you enjoyed this review! Please leave a comment telling me which one is your favorite shade!
