These beauties don’t bring boys, but the girls to the yard, damn right! I’m not talking about milkshakes, obviously, but rather about Maybelline Creamy Mattes. But I do agree, their color is somehow smoothie-like… I’m beyond excited that a new line of Color Tattoos and matte lipsticks is available in Slovenia, I’m still disappointed we didn’t get the Leather collection a few years ago. When I went shopping, there were three shades available out of four and a few lipsticks. However, I was somewhat disappointed that there weren’t any testers available so I had to choose the eye shadows just by my instinct.
♦ The first one is a grayish violet shade Vintage Plum and it sort of looks like a color of a grandmother’s old dress or something, but in a good way! It is a lovely shade that is great to wear in autumn and winter. As for the texture, it is somehow patchy and difficult to apply evenly, especially if you try to build up a bit more intense layer. But I always apply it over eye primer and it works great.
♦ The other one that caught my attention is a slightly pink, almost concealer-like light shade called Crème De Rose. This one has a much more creamy texture and blends out great. It was actually my favorite at first, but it turned out to be too light for me as my skin is still quite dark. My sister tried it on and it looks just perfect on her!
As always, you can use these on their own or as a base and then apply other eye shadows. Or you can blend Color Tattoos together, well that’s an idea! And if you’re wondering whether these little gems dry up – you will have them for ages, believe me. I’ve been using four normal Color Tattoos for around two years every single time I apply make up and not even one is close to finishing it. You’ll probably have to throw them away for other reasons than using them up.
I was also eyeing the shade Crème De Nude, but it had a too intense yellow undertone for me. As for the fourth shade, I don’t even know how it looks like because it seems like all drugstores in the city centre are out of it – it obviously must be gorgeous. Either way, these are a great product that I’ll be happy to use in the following months!
