Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Pure Pigments Eye Shadow

Good news for the piggy fans out there as Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow are launching for Fall 2013. Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow will prove a unique product for the drugstore market as I can probably name, on one hand, the brands that offer such a product.

Granted, the online world is filled with pigment eyeshadow options in an array of gorgeous colors but not many brands at your local drugstore are offering them are they? Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow ($7.99) will definitely be a big pull for the drugstore beauty babes out there. L’Oreal was the last brand to do HIP Pigments if anyone remembers those and I believe NYX still offers their loose pigments but outside of that I can’t think of many brands doing a similar product at the moment.

Maybelline Precious Pearl Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Precious Pearl Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow

Maybelline Precious Pearl Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow is one of several new Color Tattoo Eyeshadows released this Summer that will be available for a limited time at drugstores.

I have to admit compared to the Fall 2013 shades these Summer colors were a vast disappointment. I felt like the formula wasn’t even on par with the original formula.

Precious Pearl is actually one of two new shades of frosty white that Maybelline launched. The other shade, Waves of White, is more of a duochrome shade which reflected blue. With Precious Pearl you’ll get more of a cooler, frostier white.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Maybelline Electro Baby Lips Lip Balm

Maybelline has introduced a line of Baby Lips Electro Lip Balms in several new neon shades. Baby Lips Electro Lip Balms are just a little more daring than the normal range of colors and kinda a fun addition for Summer. I mean seriously, I can get on board with rocking neon 80′s shades of lips balms.

Avon Extra Lasting Concealer Review & Swatches

Avon Extra Lasting Concealer

I decided to give Avon Extra Lasting Concealer a try earlier this month since it was on sale. Hey, $4.99 concealer seemed a tempting morsel. Extra Lasting Concealer is typically $9 but Avon has had it on sale for a fiver the last month or so. This comes in 7 shades and claims 18 hours of concealing wear.

I typically don’t have a ton of issues with my concealer fading. Blame it on my drier eyes but my concealer tends to stay put once applied and very rarely fades away so I’m unsure if I really need a formula that lasts eighteen hours because if I wanted it too my current concealer can go a full 24.

But….

Anything to try a new concealer I say!
