Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in "Barely Branded"
Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in "Barely Branded"
   I recently picked up this pretty little gem at my local Ulta when looking for a shadow base for my most recent tutorial featuring all drugstore products. At first glance this color reminded me a lot of MAC's Paint Pot in Bare Study, and it is pretty close.
   This product, like many of the other color tattoos, is amazing. My favorite part about this product is the staying power, it lasts all day and beyond on my eyelid. Like "Bare Study" I have worn this product alone on the eye and it gives a very fresh glowy look. And what is also amazing about this product, is the price, around $7(depending on where you buy).
   I also have to mention another thing quickly. When buying makeup products I am constantly thinking about how I can store the items in my MUJI drawers. This product fits perfectly in the five drawer, where the MAC Paint Pots do not. Size wise you could compare the Color Tattoos to the old benefit creaseless cream packaging!
   The real question here is... which do I prefer? Staying power and texture is about the same in both products. The Color Tattoo is a little more pigmented, which is a plus in most cases. As for color the Paint Pot is whiter and a little less warm. Overall I think I would choose the Color Tattoo, the price and the color payoff really just suit me best! I think this is a great cheaper alternative.

  1. Great review!! I haven't tried the Bare Study Paint Pot, but I am definitely obsessed with the Color Tattoos in Barely Branded, Inked in Pink and Bad to the Bronze! I use them every day as a base (and sometimes alone) instead of a typical eyeshadow primer.
