Maybelline Creamy Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of five, new “Leather” cream eyeshadows that is available with the new Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Makeup Collection.
This is an exciting launch of Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow as a majority of these shades are matte in finish. I did notice the lids say Leather on them! Some are speculating that references the finish but honestly, has anyone heard of a leather finish eyeshadow before?! I’m curious how Maybelline will market these as we draw nearer to Fall and whether or not they’ll become permanent the way the Metallic Color Tattoo Eyeshadows did!
Maybelline Creamy Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is a warmer shade of beige tan in the pot but it swatches and applies as a taupe-y tan in my opinion. The color has a matte finish without any sparkle or shimmer of any kind however, the texture is very creamy and blends out easily for a matte finish.

I’ve had my hits and misses with the Color Tattoo Eyeshadow formula but these new shades are proving to be very creamy, easy to apply, and easy to blend out. They do take a moment to set as they are extra creamy but it’s not a chore or a pain. Once set on my drier eyes typically I have fairly good wear without creasing or fading but Creamy Beige does seem to like to crease very quickly. Within three hours of wear I did see a good deal of creasing right smack in the middle of my lid. Color didn’t fade though and remained fresh through the wear, it was just a matter of the shade creasing but it wasn’t anything a quick, gentle rub of my finger couldn’t fix.
Um..dare I say Creamy Beige is a little boring…! I don’t really love taupes and this is kind of an uneventful smoky taupe-y beige on my lids. It’ll likely make a nice base for other shades but on its own it’s very basic! I tried out Deep Forest yesterday and I kinda had the same results! Mind you for simple, fast eye looks you can’t go wrong as there isn’t a lot of work to go into using this shade and it leaves plenty of room to accent with eyeliner. However, if you want something bolder you might find this is a little boring in terms of color!
None the less Maybelline Creamy Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is a welcome addition for those that desired more matte shades in the Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Collection! Now let’s hope they are here to stay permanently.
Anyone try the new shades?
