During my quick trip into Walgreens, I just happened to pass through the cosmetic’s section and noticed a display for the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal collection. There are five shades within this new collection and are priced at $6.99 (at least they were at Walgreens). The new collection as described by Maybelline:
“Cream gel eyeshadows for a long-lasting shimmery metallic shade. 24HR wear, cream gel formula for smooth application.”
I purchased ‘Inked in Pink’ but would like to go back and get ‘Barely Branded’ (a more neutral beige shade). I am terrible at describing colors, so I hope my pictures and swatches can help you determine if the color works for you.
The product is just like the original formula, except it does have shimmer and fewer color options (I hope they add more shades). This is best applied using your ring finger, tapping it gently onto your eyelid. It can crease just a little during your wear time, but not enough to ruin your look. You can sheer it out, build it up, wear it alone or wear it as an eyeshadow base. I like it on its own but I also like it underneath ‘Toasted’ from Urban Decay (within the Naked palette).

I did try to wash it off my hand and a good amount of product did come off and it left a stain of color behind. I ended up using my eye make-up remover to take it off completely. Even if you wear it alone, it will stay on until you want it to come off.
