Review & Swatchfest: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink & Silver Strike

Maybelline Color Tattoos in Inked in Pink & Silver Strike

I am so late to the Color Tattoo Metal party, but I didn't jump on them initially because I knew they would be a permanent fixture to the Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadow line. Finally, a BOGO 50% off deal happening at CVS this week (and ULTA too) and my curiosity to try Inked in Pink got the best of me and I bit the bullet.

Inked in Pink is a cool, pale pink with a super fine frost that gives it its metallic sheen. Silver Strike is like a liquid silver (very similar to the silver in MAKE UP FOR EVER's Flash Palette) and a unique cream drugstore product given how often affordable products with a metallic finish tend to have course, chunky metallic glitter (I'm looking at you, Bold Gold). Both are easy to apply, creamy, and opaque at first pass, making them perfect as both standalone cream eyeshadows or eyeshadow bases. As with the rest of the Color Tattoo line, once dry, these don't budge until you are ready for them to. I don't typically have oily lids, so I don't prime my eyes beforehand, but those with excessively oily lids might want to. At $6.99 a piece, they are must-haves for the quality if you love the shades.
