Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows Barely Beige Review, Swatches, Photos

Maybelline Barely Beige Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Barely Beige is one of eight new, limited edition shades for Fall 2012. I was quite excited about this launch as I really love the Color Tattoo formula.

For a long time I hated cream eyeshadows but I’ve migrated more and more to the formula in the last several years. Maybelline did a fabulous job with this formulation plus you can get these little pots for as little as $5.99 in some locations. Combine that with a Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off and you have a fantastic little beauty budget steal.

Take a look!

Musings of the Day: It’s Ok To Shop for Makeup at Forever 21

Forever 21 Love Beauty Shimmer Tinted Lip Gloss 1

Some title eh? But I really like digging through the Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Collection when checking out. They always have those buckets that surround you as you edge towards the register in what seems like the never ending line from hell (why is F21 always so damn busy?).

I think they intentionally put all that stuff around to either 1. make super spontaneous sales or 2. to keep you entertained while you’re waiting with twenty people in front of you.

Palettes, glosses, oh my! All utter rubbish of course but sometimes, well only sometimes it’s ok to shop for makeup at Forever 21.

No shame in my game.
