Maybelline Sunwashed Sky Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Sunwashed Sky Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline Sunwashed Sky Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of two repromoted and renamed limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows released with the Maybelline Bleached Neons Summer 2014 Collection.

If you already own the Cool Crush Color Tattoo Eyeshadow which was released as a limited edition shade for Summer 2013 you likely won’t need Sunwashed Sky because it’s simply the same color but renamed for Summer 2014.

Take a look below as I do comparison swatches between Sunwashed Sky and Cool Crush and you’ll see what I mean!

Maybelline Bleached Neons Color Show Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Maybelline Bleached Neons Color Show Nail Polish

Bleached Neons? Such an oxymoron right? That’s exactly what Maybelline Bleached Neons Color Show Nail Polish a total oxymoron! Bright yet not as vibrant as a neon but subtle and washed out with color that appears charmingly faded out!

I think neons scream the 80’s to me and although the 80’s trend has a way of popping up every Summer I feel like Maybelline did so much of a better job with the paleness of the Bleached Neons Collection. These are more wearable shades! Vibrant yet subtle, bright yet washed up for a look that’s unique and not all about neon!

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir Review & Swatches

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir happens to be the second purple shade that the brand released with the new Bleached Neons Summer 2014 Collection.

If you like purples you best be getting your hands on these two limited edition Color Elixir Summer 2014 shades. I’m not really a purple girl…I love the color but on my lips I’m not convinced it’s a me shade.

I do think it looks STUNNING on darker skin tones.

Take a peek!
