Hey all beauty geeks!!! A good base is a must for any eye look. But, how awesome it is when a good base can be worn alone without an eye shadow and it looks decent. Maybelline Color Tattoos do not need any introduction. Every girl in every corner of the world will have it. (probably). 😉 But, I am not talking about those color tattoos. Maybelline released a metal version of these famous color tattoos in 5 bold shades. I picked up Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded as I found it to be neutral to go with every make up look. Let us explore this metal tattoo more. 😉

My take on Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded:
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded is a beautiful shimmery champagne shade with warmer undertones. Though it is described as shimmery, it does not contain chunky shimmer or glitter. It, in fact, has a strong metallic sheen to it. It looks gorgeous as an overall lid color and also, as a brow and tear duct highlight. If you are running out of time, just swipe it across the lid to get a metallic but not overly sheen. And if you have time, throw in any color in the crease and viola, you have a super glam eye look without much efforts. 🙂 I love paring it with bright colors in the crease for a fun look. Since it is a gorgeous neutral, it goes with almost every color and make it look subtle.
Texture: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded has a thick but creamy texture. It is not dry as original color tattoos. Goes on smoothly and even blends easily. Does not goop up on the lids and gives a nice, smooth base for eye makeup. It does not crease easily, but needs a good primer underneath.
Pigmentation: Intensely pigmented. One swipe gives a nice wash on the eye lids. Apply more for a saturated color.
Staying Power: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded does last for a long time, but does need a good primer to stay creaseless on my oily lids.
Packaging: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded comes in a sturdy glass jar with a black plastic cap. The jar is a bit heavy and may break if not handled properly.

- Beautiful warm champagne shade.
- Metallic sheen.

What I do not like about Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded:

- Fragile packaging.
Final Impression: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded is a must-have neutral creamy eye shadow. It goes with every makeup look and is perfect for daily wear and special occasions. Goes on nicely and blends without much effort. A multi-tasking product to have in the kitty. Girls if you are looking for a neutral but gorgeous creamy eye shadow, this is it. Highly Recommended!!!
