Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches
Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is another, matte Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadow launching with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Collection.
I recently ran across a display featuring all five of the new “Leather” Color Tattoo Eyeshadows for Fall 2014 and being as obsessed with them I’m quite happy they have five, new shades. A reader recently tweeted Maybelline about these and they replied they are indeed permanent. So I’m tentatively saying these will be around to stay so if you can’t find them now, you surely will as we head deeper into Summer.
Vintage Plum is one of the four shades that happens to be matte in finish. So many fans will be happy these do not contain shimmer or sparkle of any kind.
Let’s take a look!
Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is a dark shade of lilac. I really am tempted to call it a taupe-y lilac…..! It’s smoky shade and quite reminds me of a gloomy, rainy day!

Something I noticed about the new Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is a majority of the shades do look very similar to each other once applied. Creamy Beige, Deep Forest, and Vintage Plum sort of have the same smoky look to them once they are on my lid and they colors aren’t terribly different so I have to question how unique a shade this is. Maybelline introduced some really great matte Color Tattoo Eyeshadows that were limited edition a few months ago. I have to admit those matte shades would have made a better permanent part of the collection because at the moment these newer shades are starting to run together a little bit for me, it’s typically a smoky eye with a little bit of a color difference…Am I making any sense? Likely not
Vintage Plum has an excellent creamy formula that’s not dense or dry. It applies and blends easily and sets to a soft, matte finish without any shimmer of any kind. It’ll make a great base shade for a smoky eye look. On its own it’s difficult to get complete intensity with the shade as it tends to sheer out as you apply even when building! I think the fact that most of the shades from this collection perform in a similar way is the reason why it’s hard to see a major different between the colors! It just looks like I keep doing a smoky eye with smaller undertone variations each time I use a shade.
Sorry, hopefully I’m not being a killjoy here. This doesn’t make me any less excited about the shades and new Color Tattoo Eyeshadows!
Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow and all the new Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadows are popping in stores now!
