Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded

I don’t really have a review on this product today; I have blogged about this line two separate times and will link them below. I try to blog what I like to see on beauty blog’s because whenever I want to research a product, I first want to see the product up close and I want a swatch of the product, too.

I do want to share some swatches of the Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in ‘Barely Branded’. A few months ago, Maybelline launched a line of Color Tattoo’s that were limited edition, one color in particular was ‘Barely Beige’, a product everyone wanted because it was a much cheaper version of MAC Paint Pots in ‘Bare Study’ (or so I was told).

Maybelline launched another line of Color Tattoo’s (not limited edition) and it included ‘Barely Branded’. At first glance, I decided against it because looking at the product, I thought it was ‘Barely Beige’, just with a different name. After watching a few hauls on Youtube, I decided to try and pick it up next time I went out. I found a display at Target, found one ‘Barely Branded’ and it was already opened!! I took a picture of the display, showing two wrappers for the Color Tattoo’s.

See the two wrappers and the 'Barely Branded' to the right was opened and a finger print was in it. GROSS!!
Please, if you open and test a product, buy it or don’t open it!! That is disgusting and ruins the product for everyone else. I have noticed this has happened more at Target than anywhere else, especially with their lipsticks. Check everything before you buy it, especially if it doesn’t have a seal!

Here are pictures of ‘ Barely Beige’ and ‘Barely Branded’ side-by-side and swatched for you. The only difference between the two is the ‘Barely Branded’ is more of a champagne color and the ‘Barely Beige’ is well, more beige. The blog links are below to check out my thoughts on this line.
