Maybelline Color Tattoos Summer 2013

I have swatches of three of the new Maybelline Color Tattoos for you!
The new shades have a really lovely duochrome finish to them.
They had a smooth finish when I swatched them, like what we have come to expect from Color Tattoos!

Seashore Frosts is a truly unique color. I’ve never seen another shadow like it, ever! It’s hard to describe, and harder to get a picture that does its gorgeousness justice. I would describe it as a blue green shade with a beautiful gold shift. I wore this patted on my lid over MAC Painterly paint pot, and it was a light blue gray with gold sheen. It lasted me a good 10 hours without creasing, but it did fade throughout the day.

Lavish Lavender is the next color I tried. I love purple, and find it to be the easiest color for me to wear on my eyes. The look I wore today was Painterly all over lid to brow, before Lavish Lavender on the lid up to my crease. I used my Urban Decay Vice palette for the other colors. I put Anonymous on the inner half of my lid and under my brow. I put Laced in the crease, and used this as my blending shade. I patted Rapture on the outer half of my lid and blended a bit into my crease. I intensified the crease with Vice and also put this in my outer V. I used MAC Prunella eye kohl smudged on my upper and lower lash lines. Then I patted Vice over the eyeliner. This is my favorite way to use UD Vice. It looks gorgeous as a liner!

The last shade I have is Cool Crush. This is the most shimmery of the bunch, and I’ve only swatched it. It is a silvery lavender-blue shade. I don’t have high hopes for this one, but maybe I will be surprised! :)
Have you tried any of the new Color Tattoos? I’d love to hear your ideas for color combinations if you have!

I hope you’re having a great weekend!

      If you can find the lavender on ebay or in a swap, grab it!! I adore it! I always wear it when I use the purple shades from my Urban Decay Vice 1 palette. It’s the perfect combo, and lasts all day without creasing. :)
