Maybelline's Color Tattoo in 'Tough as Taupe'

Friday, November 9, 2012


I've been wanting to try one of these color tattoos for quite some time. I really wanted the shimmery nude in the fall collection, but I couldn't find it anywhere :(. That was upsetting, but to fill the shimmery nude void in my heart, I picked up my second best option: Tough as Taupe! Considering I love the color taupe, it seemed like a darling fit.

I like the glass packaging. It reminds me of a MAC Paint Pot, which is one of my makeup essentials.

The color itself doesn't look too exciting. It's a murky gray leaning toward purple. But, once you swatch it and put it on your lids, it looks great! I think that the color really compliments my green eyes well. I used mine as a straight lid color, but I'm sure this would be a great for an eyeshadow to go over.

The consistency is smooth and creamy. It doesn't go on clumpy or streaky. I don't find myself tugging on my eyelids a lot to get the product to come off my finger either. If you find that you might have this problem, it would work just as well with a synthetic fiber brush, like a flat-concealer brush.

Have you tried these Color Tattoos? If so, what's your favorite? I've been eying Bad to the Bronze... ;)
