The Girl With The Color Tattoos...Maybelline Color Tattoo Summer 2013 swatches!


To my dismay this morning, last month's gloomy weather has carried over into July. I have loads of products to swatch, and horrible natural lighting to photograph them in. However, the show must go on...so, I apologize for any and all overcast photos.

Include in my recent parcel was the maybelline limited edition Summer 2013 Color Tattoos.

From left to right:Precious Pearl, Waves of White, Icy Mint, Shady Shores.

Precious Pearl: Ivory with pink and silver shimmers. 

Waves of White: a translucent off-white with an aqua duochrome. 

Icy Mint: a frosty, sheer, pale mint green.

Shady Shores: a translucent muted-yellow with a spring green duochrome.

 From left to right: Cool Crush, Blue Paradise, Lavish Lavender, Seashore Frosts.

Cool Crush: a frosted baby blue with a grey base and silver shimmers.

Blue Paradise: a frosted, medium blue with a silvered-pinkish-lavender duochrome. 

Lavish Lavender: a frosted, grey-based muted lavender with a silvered-pinkish-mauve duochrome. 

Seashore Frosts: a frosted, muted, slate blue with a bronzy, peachy-pink, gold duochrome. 


The new color tattoos have a creamier and thinner, texture than their older siblings. Also, most of these shadows offer a sheer wash of color, which may annoy some. But, with the hot and humid Summer weather, I don't mind some skin peeking through.

 So far, my favorite shades are Waves of White, Shady Shores, Blue Paradise, and (the star of the entire collection, in my opinion), Seashore Frosts.


Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

    2. I think that one should blog about what one is passionate about and you certainly appear to have a HUGE film knowledge. I say DO it!!
      I'd be very sad if you gave up 'So Lonely in Gorgeous' forever though:(
      Perhaps you could pendle between two blogs?

  2. I purchased this collection but I ended up getting rid of it. It was pretty but didn't seem practical to me. =\
