Cool Crush is one of eight new limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows that launched this Summer. From my understanding the shades will be ONLY available in the month of May but I found some of them before that time and I think you’ll probably find them around a little after that depending on stock in stores.
They are actually turning into shades you don’t absolutely need since they seem to be very difficult to apply in my experience.
Cool Crush is lovely shade but I had hiccups using it.
Take a peek!
Many of these new color have a duochrome effect however, Cool Crush actually applies as a solid shade. In the pot it reflects lighter blue with elements of purple and silver but for the most part in applies an icy cool blue that’s very similar to Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick in Iced Blue. It has a good deal of shimmer to it with a bit of a metallic almost frosty finish on my eyes. It actually almost looks silver in my swatches. The shade is best suited for a more cooler complexion than my own, I’d say blondes with bluer eyes would have more fun with the color….!
It does have a slippery texture with a streaky finish that applies patchy and uneven. I seem to have a bad case of repetitive disorder when it comes to these shades as I’ve been describing many of them the same. The original colors I loved but these newer Summer ones I’ve had issues with unfortunately. The dry down is very slow here so it does give you plenty of time to work but I find such a slow set results in creasing. In my case I got a wear time of around four hours before the shade creased a fair bit.
Cool Crush is worthy of a pick up as the color is a lovely lighter blue but the formula itself is disappointing in some cases. So far this and Lavish Lavender I’ve had the better success with.
I’m looking forward to trying the other shades I purchased.
Do share your results with it!
I purchased mine from Harmons.
