Maybelline Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadows at Ulta

Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Color Tattoo Eyeshadows Fall 2014

If you’ve been following Musings lately you know all about the new Maybelline Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadows that launched with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection for Fall 2014. A reader tweeted Maybelline about the new Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadows asking if they are permanent and she got a reply back with a solid yes! Great news as we won’t have to scurry around trying to find these brand, new shades. I purchased mine at Bed, Bath, and Beyond recently where they apparently got a soft launch so check Harmons and Christmas Tree Stores as well since the three locations are sister stores!

For those who are really hungry to get there hands on these new shades they are available as a Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off at

The shades look to be named wrong as I have a shade called Chocolate Suede and it is called “Chocolate Slide” on the Ulta site and Dramatic Black is labeled as Drama Black but I think it’s safe to say they are the same colors I have.

The Maybelline Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadows are as follows:

L’Oreal Buys NYX Cosmetics

NYX Love in Rio Eye Shadow

L’Oreal’s beauty portfolio is about to get bigger as they are about to acquire and buy out NYX Cosmetics. It is undisclosed how much L’Oreal paid for NYX but none the less NYX Cosmetics will shortly be apart of the L’Oreal family.

RRTnews reports, “NYX is a dynamic company that has done a tremendous job of harnessing the power of social media, digital marketing and multi-channel distribution. Both L’Oréal and NYX share a passion for innovation and a confidence in the strength and vitality of the color cosmetics market,” said Frédéric Rozé, President and CEO of L’Oréal USA.

The brand will continue with their current leadership team and remain a California based brand!

I doubt much will change for NYX when this deal is finalized. I’m not an expert on cruelty free beauty but NYX is currently cruelty free and I imagine it will remain so after the acquisition.

What are your thoughts on L’Oreal buying out NYX Cosmetics?
