I picked up one of the new Color Tattoo crayons! Hit the play button above for my thoughts, or take a look after the jump!
So I picked up the shade Lilac Lust while I was out and about and I’m impressed. If you’ve been under a rock, Maybelline has had Color Tattoos for a while now, but they come in a little glass pot. They can harden and are a bit unhygienic. Outside of that, they’re a great product and a great cream shadow option.
They’re better as a crayon. They’re easier to use, won’t dry out as much, and take up less space. The crayon is a twist up, so no sharpening required! I’ve used this under powder shadows and on its own and it’s great both ways. It doesn’t crease and is long wearing. When it’s blended out, it does sheer out a bit, but the coverage can be built back up with ease.
If you’re looking for a shadow stick or a cream option, I suggest these. The original Color Tattoos are wonderful, but they’re much better in this form.
Here’s a swatch of the shade Lilac Lust. It was incredibly hard to photograph because it’s a bit metallic, but it’s gorgeous.
I highly suggest these for anyone wanting some quality cream shadows. The nude shades would work as eyeshadow primer, but the duochrome/metallic are great on their own.
I paid $7 for this and you can purchase it anywhere Maybelline is sold!
