Maybelline Pure Nude Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of six new limited edition cream eyeshadows Maybelline has introduced with a Spring 2014 Collection entitled Dare to Go Nude.
I feel like Pure Nude is a rehash of every light cream beige that Maybelline has done since introducing the Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Collection. I wasn’t a fan of shades like Barely Branded (Permanent) and Barely Beige (Limited Edition Fall 2012).
Take a look!
If you’re curious Maybelline Pure Nude Color Tattoo Eyeshadow swatches side by side with Barely Beige and Barely Branded looks identical but it a touch pinker where as Barely Branded leans towards being more lighter beige and Barely Beige has a bit more peach to it. All three shades after a bit of testing look exactly the same on my lid as well as my arm however, have subtle differences in the pan.
Pure Nude, Barely Beige, Barely Branded
Maybelline Pure Nude Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is a lighter creamy beige with a slightly golden pink undertone. I dislike the shade because it’s quite frosty on my lids and applies with a patchiness that I find unflattering. It’ll make a good base for powder shadows but all over my lid I dislike the finish and appearance of the shade.
Out of the six shades released for Spring 2014 I think Pure Nude was the most disappointing due to not only the application and wear but also the fact that it is easy enough to duplicate using either Barely Beige or Barely Branded.
Maybelline has since confirmed that the six new Color Tattoo Eyeshadows for Spring 2014 are not permanent and limited edition with a wider launch this month in drugstores.
Good luck locating and don’t forget back ups of your favs as when they are gone they are gone!
