Review & Swatches: Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Buff & Tuff, Barely Brazen, Brash Blue, and Black Mystery

Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Buff & Tuff, Barely Brazen, Brash Blue, and Black Mystery
Time for another round of swatches featuring Maybelline's new Color Tattoo Pure Pigments! I was so impressed with the first round - featuring Improper Copper, Pink Rebel, Forest Fatale, Breaking Bronze, and Wild Gold - that I had to take advantage of the BOGO 50% off Maybelline deal at CVS last week. This time around, I'm equally as impressed with the quality, but there are few surprises in the mix.

Barely Brazen is a shimmery light champagne - similar to stila's Kitten. Buff & Tuff is a medium, neutral, satin sandy brown with chunky gold shimmer. Brash Blue is a vibrant cobalt blue. Black Mystery is a satin black base with light blue shimmer. Both Barely Brazen and Buff & Tuff undergo a more dramatic transformation when applied wet versus dry, whereas Brash Blue and Black Mystery don't show much difference.

As with the previous batch, each of these shades is pigmented, apply evenly, and are finely milled. The glitter fallout was more noticeable with Buff & Tuff and Black Mystery, but because I do foundation last when I'm using pigments, it's not hard to clean up. All shades lasted 10 + hours without fading when worn both wet and dry over a base. One word to the wise when it comes to Brash Blue: it stains! After using makeup remover, I still have pale blue swatch lines on my arms 5 hours later. Make sure to use a primer! While I would have liked to see an all-matte or satin pigment from this bunch, I really can't complain given the quality of the shades available. For $6.99, I recommend every shade I've tried so far!
