Maybelline Limited Edition Color Tattoos - Maybelline Nude Pink, Matte Brown, Nude Compliment Color Tattoo

February 25, 2021


Some mornings before work, I'm just not having it - and everyone who works or has to wake up early knows what I mean by "it."  Barely dragging out of bed and putting on the first pieces of clothing I see in my closet, the last thing on my mind is creating a beautiful, refreshing, perfectly blended makeup look (let's be serious, my coworkers are lucky I even bothered with a bit of foundation - the "this'll do" kind of a foundation application). 

But because I still have to appear presentable, I always rely on Maybelline Color Tattoos for a  "I'm ready to work and accomplish things" look.  Maybelline Color Tattoos have gained quite the popularity in the beauty community, but I did not actually try the products until the Maybelline Gilded in Gold Holiday 2013 collection. My Color Tattoo collection is tiny but I get tremendous use out of my Limited Edition Shades (yes, they're that good). The Color Tattoos are cream based eye shadows that can be applied with a brush or with your finger. For me, application is the main selling point as the Color Tattoos formula blends easily, is pigmented, and can be sheer or strong based on preference.  All Color Tattoos can be used as a base for powder shadows (and they perform wonderfully), but I prefer the simpler and time-saving sole application. 

Maybelline Color Tattoo Nude Pink Limited Edition (swatch above) is a matte pink beige that depending on the light conditions has purple tones. Nude Pink is the perfect color to brighten and open up sleepy eyes - the shade is almost nude and mimics a concealer. The Nude Pink shade is one of the Color Tattoos that do not crease at all as the formula is thicker than other Color Tattoos.  I apply Nude Pink all over the lid using my finger, pop some mascara, and voila, I actually look like I got ready. Nude Pink Color Tattoo was a part of the Holiday 2013 Maybelline Limited Edition collection.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Matte Brown Limited Edition (swatch above) is a deep chocolate brown that is a universally flattering shade.  Matte Brown adds depth to the eyes and a bit of color - surprisingly, despite its strong pigmentation, this shade is also easy to blend and I'm confident using it all over the lid.  Matte Brown Color Tattoo was also a part of the Holiday 2013 Maybelline Limited Edition collection.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Nude Compliment Limited Edition (swatch above) is a grey-tinted taupe with a sheen finish (this Color Tattoo does not actually contain shimmer but rather has a metallic finish). Nude Compliment is part of the Maybelline Dare to go Nude Spring 2014 Collection. Side note here, this Dare to go Nude collection is what a natural-makeup-loving-girl's dreams are made of - I also picked up a Master Glaze blush and two of the Maybelline Limited Edition Buffs lipsticks in Ravishing Rose and Barely Bronze. Nude Compliment does crease a bit but nothing offensive as some other cream eye shadows out there.  This shade is quite complex and can look differently per person (thus, it's another Maybelline winner!).

Although these Limited Edition shades may difficult to procure, I've linked to Amazon where you can purchase quite similar neutral shades from the permanent Color Tattoo line.  Priced affordably at approximately $5.00, these Maybelline goodies are popular for a good reason.  The vibrant and long lasting Color Tattoo eye shadows are perfect for no-fuss application and a speedy makeup routine.


Stay Pretty, Miranda M.

  10. I have still yet to try out any of the color tattoos (maybe because I almost never wear eyeshadow) but I feel like that light pink one is just so easy to throw on and isn't too bold or dark that I can introduce to my every day routine (and I definitely feel you on those mornings where you aren't having "It"!! Too bad I feel like those are almost every morning, lolz.). I'll have to keep a look out for the different limited edition ones that come out since most of the ones I have seen are just too bold/bright/shimmery for me.

    1. I was trying not to sound a grump but definitely having tough mornings like every day now that I have to wake up early haha! I feel you on the shimmer the Color Tattoos are marketed as vibrant bold etc and the ads always have some crazy blue or green color - so I was happily surprised with these (at least the matte ones are perfect for everyday and they're very no fuss!) You should look into tough as taupe or barely bronzed those colors seem normal and suited for every day looks.

    1. I didn't think I'd get a lot of use but they're really my go to shadows, Color Tattoos just make the eyes pop and takes one minute to apply (no blending!)
