Maybelline Color Tattoo- Barely Beige (fall 2012 limited edition)

Maybelline color tattoo has become one of my favorite beauty items. They released their fall 2012 limited edition a while ago. But unfortunately we Canadians will not see them here for a bit(at least that's the case for my small town). I got mine from ebay, of course, where else?

I use the cream shadows as a base so I am drawn to the neutral colors. From their fall limited edition, I got Barely Beige.


Barely Beige


Same packaging as the regular ones. But this time I will learn. To store it, close the lid tightly and store it upside down. Apparently that would keep it from being dried out.


L-R: Maybelline Barely Beige, Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Benefit Birthday Suit

I am comparing it to Maybelline's Bad to the Bronze and Benefit's Birthday suit. I have had  the Bad to the Bronze for 5 months now. As you can tell, it is a bit drier than the other two.



L-R: Maybelline Barely Beige, Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Benefit Birthday Suit

Barely Beige has a more pinkish tone with a bit shimmer. All the swatches are just one swipe. Bad to the Bronze is obviously much more pigmented than the rest. 


Comparing the texture, Benefit's Birthday Suit is by far the creamiest and smooth. Very easy to glide on. I use only my fingers to apply. For the Maybelline color tattoo, I have 4 other shades from their regular line and for some reason, some are easier to blend and apply than others. I have Too Cool (a cream/white shade) and Tough as Taupe(a greyish color) and Too Cool is my go-to shadow for the whole summer. It is harder to blend than all my other shades and it has become quite chalky and dried out now. 

Have you tried Maybelline Color Tattoo fall 2012 limited edition? What is your favorite shade?

  1. i haven't tried the LE shades but i do have have a dark shimmery grey color.
    the staying power is impressive but i guess i still prefer the l'oreal infallible.
    the new LE color would go perfectly well with Bad to the Bronze. very pretty!

    thanks for the comparison! :)

    1. I still haven't tried the L'oreal infallible. Maybe I should go check them out as I like the lighter shades. The other limited edition colors look too dark for me.

    1. yes, exactly. Always a big delay for these new products to hit the shelves here. Same thing with the Revlon kissable lip stains. I always want to try out new items first and they are testing my patience(I always cave in and buy from ebay :)
