Beauty ¦ Maybelline Leather effect color tattoo's

If you've read my blog for a while now about a year ago I was so obsessed with the maybelline colour tattoo's they were almost the only thing I used on my eyes and I used on and on bronze for about two months straight. However the more I got into the eyeshadow the more they got pushed to the back of my collection and they were just pulled out when I was feeling lazy or was in a rush. This being said when I heard about the new shades being released in the UK I felt a little flutter of excitement.

I really like the new colours as they are more neutral than the last lot there is the beige in the picture above and also a chocolate brown which I didn't manage to get my hands on. The formula is a little dryer than on and on bronze but they are definitely creamier than the matte shades from the line. Vintage plum is an almost completely matte shade with a really lovely creamy texture however I find the pigmentation to lack a little and I find it to be quite patchy. Once blended and built up it's the most beautiful plummy grey shade which works nicely as a base for a smokey eye. I do still like this one but it requires a little more effort than all the other shades I own do.

Creamy beige is a really gorgeous basic camel shade with a little bit of a sheen and a tiny bit of shimmer. This is beautifully pigmented and it's a great one for neutralising any redness/veins on the lids. This one goes on much smoother than vintage plum and it isn't patchy at all. This is the one out of the two that I've been reaching for regularly and it may even overtake my love for on and on bronze and be my favourite colour tattoo shade. As with all the other shades in the line these both last for a good 7-8 hours without much sign of creasing or fading.

If you already love the colour tattoo's I seriously suggest you check out these new additions however if you are a first timer i'd perhaps avoid vintage plum.

    1. You definitely need to try them they are a staple in my collection! x

  2. I really love the Creamy Beige shade - I get what you mean about Vintage Plum being harder to work with though, I didn't get it but the texture wasn't as creamy when I swatched it! xx
