Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadows in Nude Pink and Just Beige

I snagged two of the limited edition shades at my local CVS. I know they’re HTF, but keep an eye out for them. There could be a few hiding out.






Just Beige is on the left, Nude Pink is on the right (same order for the swatches).

My thoughts: I like these two, but I wish they were a little creamier. Like my beloved Stila Prime Pot, these Color Tattoos can get a tad cakey (Just Beige is especially guilty of this). However, I do like them and I hope Maybelline considers making them permanent.

It seems like these two shade are meant to dupe MAC Soft Ochre and Painterly paint pots. I have neither to compare, but it seems to me that Just Beige looks a lot like Urban Decay Eden. On the lid, I don’t think Just Beige would be discernible from Soft Ochre (once you blended it out).  From what I can tell by looking at photos of Painterly, Nude Pink looks a tad more beige, while Painterly is more yellow-toned. They are both such light pinks I don’t think I would buy one if I had the other.

These have a matte finish. It’s such a relief to get a Color Tattoo in a matte formula. Now we just need Maybelline to rerelease these. *hint hint, Maybelline* 😉

    Hey Christina, LUCKY YOU! These never made their way here, but I thought they’re promising when I first saw the photos. It’d be so great if Maybelline could make them permanent!

  2. Thanks for the swatches and for the comparison with the MAC paint pots. I think you’re right, these would have been better if they were a bit creamier.
