Maybelline Color Tattoo Beige-ing Beauty

by - April 12, 2014

The new Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Spring 2014 collection is finally available in Shoppers Drug Mart. Okay I finally stumble across it last week but in almost each store, the displays were so picked over that the only things I could find were the Color Show polishes, a couple Glaze blushes and the black Color Tattoo which didn’t interest me. I finally found a display that hadn't been decimated!

Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection

The product from the Dare to Go Nude collection that intrigued me the most were the Color Tattoos. They come in 6 shades which are limited edition. There was only four in the display.

The six shades in the collection are;
  • Pure Nude
  • Beige-ing Beauty
  • Nude Compliment
  • Sleek and Spice
  • Caramel Cool
  • Stroke of Midnight

I choose Beige-ing Beauty because it seemed different from anything I had in my stash. The others seemed to be close cousins to some of the ones I already have; Pure Nude to Barely Beige, Nude Compliment to Tough as Taupe.

Beige-ing Beauty looks very pretty in its little glass tub – it comes off as a golden champagne when applied. The consistency of this Color Tattoo was creamier and more emollient than my other permanent Color Tattoos but applied pretty much the same.

Unfortunately it was not very opaque and building it up just made a creamy mess. It comes off more as a shimmer/glitter overlay.

It creased on my eyelid at the 5 hour mark when I tried to get it opaque by applying layers.  The next time I tried, I applied a lighter layer and it lasted all work day but it wasn't very noticable other than the glitter.

I had hoped that this Color Tattoo would have been more opaque. I guess am going to have play around with it more to see how I can use it. Maybe overtop of other shadows to give it a little glitter pop?

Were you able to find the new Dare to Go Nude Color Tattoos? Did you have a favorite out the new Color Tattoos?

  1. Thanks for the review and info. Every display I come across of this Maybelline collection has been picked apart bare so I haven't been able to try out anything.

    1. The display I found un-ravaged was a smaller SDM right by my place. All the big stores were totally rummaged through. I like the tattoo but not enough to run out and buy them all.
