Maybellline Summer 2013 Color Tattoos: Review & Swatches

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has been reading my posts, that I'm obsessed with Maybelline Color Tattoos, and just to prove it even more, here are some more from the summer limited edition collection. These are the somewhat duochrome colors that's been showing up in drug stores.  The colors today are Waves of White, Seashore Frosts, and Shady Shores.

To continue reading the review and see swatches, click the link below.

You can get my thoughts of formulation, etc of the original Color Tattoos by clicking here. In comparison to past formulas, these ones are less thick in texture and a little sheerer in application. Still very pretty and enjoyable in all.

Shady Shores
Shady Shores is the least duochrome of the three I got. It's a bright sunny yellow with light gold shimmer. When you look at it in some lights, there's a hint of lime green. These colors are hard to describe and show in a static photo, so I added a quick video at the bottom to help you see the duochrome nature of these.

Waves if White looks ho-hum in the package, but don't let that fool you. It appears to be your average creamy white frost. But then in certain lights it reflects to a metallic blue/purple and in other lights almost a pink. This one has a sheer application as well, but it's unnecessary to build it up to get the array of colors.

Waves of White
As much as I like the first two, Seashore Frosts is the true gem within the bunch. It switches from a light grey toned blue to a bronzey-gold. Texture wise this is the closest to the original formula, having some substance behind it. You can apply this all over your lid, and it'll look like you have multiple colored shadows.

Here are the swatches below in different lighting, to try and show the nuanced colors. From left to right you have Sandy Shores, Waves of White, and Seashore Frosts. You can tell from the swatches that Sandy Shores and Waves of White has a sheerer consistency.

Now for a little extra, just because I really want to show case how lovely these Color Tattoos are. A quick video clip to try and show you the duochrome nature of these shadows.

Bottom Line: If you've been following my blog, I love you, and you'll know that I love Maybelline Color Tattoos. I say go get whichever one you fancy (and try to get them when it's BOGO half off).
