Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded Review & Swatches
So, this is Maybelline's Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded. I've been wanting to get my hands on it for a while but it was always sold out, so when I finally saw it in stock I did a mental happy dance.
I love the Color Tattoos (you can read my review of three of the original shades here), and this shade is no exception! Barely Branded is a shimmery beige with a metallic finish; hence the added 'metal' at the end of the product name.
Isn't it pretty? I probably did not need this shadow as I have tons of shimmery beige neutrals in my collection but I just couldn't help it. I'm sure you know the feeling!
Here's a swatch! Ugh, so nice. The quality of this Color Tattoo is definitely up to par with shades like Bad To The Bronze and Tough As Taupe from the original line. Barely Branded has a wonderfully creamy formula and applies really easily - it smoothes right on! This shade makes a nice highlight and it also makes a quick and easy wash of color on the lid (though you could definitely build it up if you wish!). I'm sure that this would make a great base for other shadows, too, but I haven't tried it that way just yet. And just like the other Color Tattoos I've tried this lasts all day without creasing - even without a primer!
I like it. What about you? :)
