Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Chocolate Suede

Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of the new Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadows launched with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Collection.

From my understanding Chocolate Suede and the other four shades from this collection will be permanent! I recently came across them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and they are also starting to pop up at Walgreens.

Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is actually the only shade from this collection that isn’t matte in finish! It also happens to be my favorite shade of the five colors released.

Take a look!

Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is a rich decadent shade of chocolate with a subtle golden sheen and a smooth, satiny finish.

I wish, I wish the shade in the pot translated on my eyes as beautifully as it looks but it actually sheers out and applies more smoky brown so I’m not getting the intense golden chocolate I see in the jar. Sad sigh! This swatches very pigmented and chocolatey but as you blend it I notice it sheers out to a more lighter smokier shade. This isn’t a bad thing mind you as it gives eyes a very lovely smoked eye finish! I just was hoping the shade would be a bit more intense.

I noticed that many of the shades in this new collection actually have the same smoky blend out.

The color is quite creamy with a soft, even finish on lids that sets on my drier eyes to a satin finish that doesn’t fade or crease for about six hours (into hour seven I saw creasing right across my lid).

Maybelline Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is definitely a gorgeous and unique shade for Fall.

It’s popping up now at drugstores.

    Thanks for the swatches of this and the other Leather Collection Color Tattoos! These are the first good pictures I’ve seen of them. Like you, I’m a little disappointed that this isn’t very “chocolatey”. I was super excited for this collection, but I think I’ll definitely have to check them out in stores first.


    • 6/20/14 14:14 Isabella Muse:

      my pleasure dear 😀 I hope you like them!!!! they are are on sale at too btw!


  • 6/18/14 21:58 Caroline:

    How do you apply it usually? I seem to constantly have a problem with my eye shadow creasing.


  • 6/19/14 3:43 Cindy:

    Nice! I hope it will be also released in the Netherlands.


  • 6/19/14 8:14 Molly:

    I …. need… alllllll of theeeeeeese. :-)


  • 6/19/14 9:33 kellly:

    I am SOOO wishing these would show up in my area already! They come here about 3 WEEKS after you are seeing them and it’s trying my patience! I definitely MUST have the purple one and the beige one and maybe this one, too, after I see it in person.
    Wait, wait, wait. . . . (fingers cash) . . . wait…


    • 6/19/14 9:58 Isabella Muse:

      hope they get to you super soon kellly :)

    These have been my new favorite makeup product. They are very similar to the Clinique touch bases – much, much cheaper. Thank you for showcasing the new fall colors. Right now I have only 2 shades that I use as eyeshadow base/primer. Now, I can buy these new shades as an actual eyeshadow. To have oily skin, these cream shadows stay put! Thank you Muse!!


    • 6/19/14 11:04 Isabella Muse:

      I’ve never tried touch bases I have to grab those 😀 My pleasure Katherine 😀 enjoy!


  • 6/19/14 10:53 Eriu:

    I MUST have these, especially Chocolate Suede! I’ve been stalking my local Walgreens but they haven’t shown up here yet nor have I found them on Maybelline’s website. Does anyone know if they did a soft launch of these in certain areas before the big rollout? I did notice at my Walgreen’s they had a “last chance” sticker on the “metals” Color Tattoos so maybe they’re waiting on sell-thru for space?


    • 6/19/14 11:00 Isabella Muse:

      these are permanent and will be launching at drugstores towards mid/end july eriu


  • 6/19/14 13:27 Ricky:

    How does this compare to the MAC Baking Beauties Eclair Paint Pot?
    Could this be a dupe?


    • 6/19/14 13:52 Isabella Muse:

      this isn’t a dupe for eclair unfortunately.


  • 6/21/14 9:52 Cindy:

    I had so much hope for these but if it isn’t as pigmented as l’Oreal infallible it is a no for me.
