Endless Purple ~ On and On Bronze ~ Permanent Taupe
As promised here are some swatches of the three Maybelline Color Tattoos that I picked up on Friday. I’m unsure how many shades have been released in the UK, the Superdrug in Leicester (which is one of the bigger Superdrug’s) has five shades, where as my local one only has three. So it looks like we are only getting five shades, but I might be wrong!
I was a bit let down by the purple shade, it is quite patchy, and the pigmentation isn’t as good as the others, it’s also harder than the others to build up, so I’ll be saving it as a base. I should say most ranges seem to struggle with purple shades, they always seem to be less pigmented than any other shade.
The bronze and taupe shades are gorgeous, both on their own or as bases. They blend really easily, and without a primer they wear all day. I have had Permanent Taupe on since 5am and still no creasing! If I liked the other shades that were available to me I would definitely be picking them up, but I can’t see myself reaching for gold or turquoise shades that often, so I will be passing on those.
I’m still disappointed that we haven’t got the full range. I really wanted the orange and red shades that are available in the US, and if I see them in Superdrug I will be no doubt seen running toward the till clutching them!
The Maybelline Color Tattoos are available at Superdrug (and I assume Boots in some time) and cost £4.99
