Maybelline Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Metal Cream Shadow Spring 2013

Maybelline’s new Metal Collection for Spring 2013 will include five new metallic Color Tattoo 24HR Metal Cream Shadows.

Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Metal Cream Gel Shadow’s innovative ink technology creates intense saturated metallic color with a cream-gel formula that smooths on for crease-proof color and long wearing 24 hour intensity.

Take a look!


  • Inked in Pink
  • Silver Strike
  • Gold Rush
  • Barely Branded
  • Electric Blue

These will be $6.99 each at drugstores in January. I’m terribly excited as I love the Color Tattoo Cream Shadows!

What do you think?

Any you need to haul?

I hoping for a great metal finish versus a frosty one. Sometimes metallic goes frost on me. Anyone have that issue?

P.S. The Hobbit soon! OMG can’t wait! Two words, Richard Armitage! My Friday will so consist of Hobbit goodness! Imagine if they made the Silmarillion into a movie? That would epic. They’d need six movie releases to tell that tell!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    OMG… they all look so amazing. I have never had issues with metallic shades looking frosty on me. The original color tattoos have recently been launched in India, God knows when will these get launched here. 🙁 🙁

    • the Muse

      aw hope you get them soon eesha! for some reason metals go a little frost on me…hopefully I’m ok with these ;D

  • Christina

    My absolute favorite new product and in my humble opinion the best thing Maybelline has ever done. I buy every single color they come out with, even if it’s something I wouldn’t normally purchase. If I can’t make it work as an eyeshadow and/or base, I’ve made them work as an eyeliner. Speaking of which I hope they have some new gel eyeliners, too!

  • portmanteau

    Gold Rush and Electric Blue are CALLLING to me, although the latter looks very similar to the Fall 2012 LE Blue on By (which I already have).

  • Candice

    Oh my goodness! I totally missed out on the Barely Beige and I am hoping to get my hands on the two neutrals here! Maybelline may become one of my favorite drugstore brands in the near future if they keep going in this direction!

  • Tennyoceres

    The Electric Blue and Gold Rush. I know I don’t use that much of either color, but wow the colors are intense! I hope swatches match what I see in the put. They look amazing.

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Forget about those color tattoos! The Hobbit is coming soon, woohoo! 🙂

    • the Muse

      the hobbits are coming to isengard! I couldn’t resist *hangs head in shame*

  • K.B.

    Gold Rush (it’ll be my 3rd gold Color Tattoo….I’m a little obsessed lol) and Barely Branded will be mine. I gave my Barely Beige to my mom, so I hope Barely Branded is similar to that shade. I’m assuming these are LE? I’m surprised that Maybelline didn’t make several of the Fall 2012 shades permanent, considering how sought after they were.

  • breyerchic04

    I’m wondering if Barely Branded really is Barely Beige.

    I NEED inked in pink.

  • Susan

    OMG, my husband saw The Hobbit last night with a friend of his who gets press passes. He said it was great! I am jealous. These eye shadows look awesome too, might have to get the pink and the barely branded. 🙂

    • the Muse

      ugh can’t WAIT ;-D I actually have a friend too that gets early release tickets but SADLY not for the hobbit GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! dying ;-D can’t wait for Friday ;D

  • Molina

    Gasp! Another Richard Armitage fan!!! I’m going to the Hobbit too – even though I don’t know a thing about fantasy novels or movies. But you-know-who is in it, so…..

    Oh yes, the new Color Tattoos! I’ve bought Inked to Pink, and I just love it. A lovely wash of glowy pink.

  • Saiba

    I really want Inked in Pink and Barely Branded the most. Barely branded is like the LE Barely Beige but with more gold tones instead of pink so it may be more of a dupe for MAC’s Bare Study Paint Pot. But I did see swatches of Electric Blue and it doesn’t come across exactly like what it is in the pot, it’s a little sheered down :/ But seems like spring 2013 releases I want are mostly Maybelline. They just keep it coming with the good stuff 😀


    Oh I am soooooo EXCITED!!!! 🙂 I nomally never see movies., but I will definitely see this in theaters, (not 3-d though, makes my head hurt)

    lol I find the long haired guys in these films so attractive!! Can’t wait too see some eye candy, smaug the dragon and gollum! 😉

  • Kaitlyn

    Is the Simarillion really that good? I read the LOTR series and loved it, but I never got past the backstory on that one… I seem to remember being like 50 pages in and it still hadn’t gone anywhere. Maybe I need to revisit it!

    • the Muse

      it depends…’s one of those novels that goes on and freaking on and on and on! it’s kinda like game of thrones, you read some, take a break, read some more, take the break…you have to digest it slowly ;-D It’s worth reading at least once if you’re a fan.

      • charlotte

        Oh not me.. I INHALED game of thrones (ice and fire), read everything that is out in about a month. Really wish I hadn’t though because who knows when the series will be finished… that was two years ago and I’ll probably have to reread by the time the other books come out. He’s been averaging about 4-6 years between.

        Did they ever decide if Hobbit will be 2 or 3 movies?

        • the Muse

          three movies from my understanding really hate committing to three years *rolls eyes* just make it six hours with intermission lol! Game of Thrones is amazing but it can be tedious sometimes so you have to take a break a sec or at least that’s the case for. Did devour the new Dresden novel AMAZING and back on track did you read it yet?! Some folks think he’ll due before he finishes GOT ;-D I surely hope not! <---my favorite enjoy ;D

          • charlotte

            That was hilarious.. thanks so much for sharing.. and I totally agree! Yeah, LOTR about killed me waiting 3 years, and the Hobbit is much smaller so not sure how they are going to stretch it so far. I’ve heard rumors that they are “embellishing” the story.. which is a scary thought.

            Totally hijacked your CT post.. LOLOL.. but it’s nice to chat with a fellow fantasy geek!

          • the Muse

            omg I hadn’t heard about the embellishment part?! jesus noooooooooooooo! that would kill me. I wondered why they had to make the film into three parts, I mean I understand they wanted to spend quality time with it but the book was short in comparison to other stories from Tolkien, gosh if they do that it would be rather silly. Agreed on LOTR, it was worth the wait on so many levels but on others it was just frustrating. Same for the next Game of Thrones book 🙁 It’s just TOO long a wait. ha…glad you liked the vid ;-D oh hijack away when it comes to fantasy/sci fi I’m all about it ;-D

          • the Muse

            oh wow did I read that and why did I read the reviews in the paper today they are saying c+ overblown film! *groans* ;-D

  • charlotte

    I will be buying them all. I already own all the rest, including all the LE. Looking forward to the pink especially. Use them almost every day as base. I really like the ELF “C” brush to apply, makes even the finicky ones go on smooth.

  • Tiffany Martin

    Want want want want!


    Hobbit Hobbit Hobbit Hobbit!

    ^_^ Sentiments.

  • Dena

    I have these on the way from Canada now! And the Rocket mascara from Maybelline too. Can’t get here soon enough!

  • Marloes

    Yes! I have the same problem with metallics looking frosty and just wrong on me.

    So metallics: YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!

    Oh no, I did not just say that… *hangs head*

  • Priscilla

    Hi muse, I picked up two of these today in Walmart. The barely one and the pink one. Thy are gorgeous!

  • Saiba

    I actually found these in my Walmart just today. It’s weird, I was not expecting to see them until January so it was a huge surprise lol I bought 4 out of the 5. Electric blue seemed to be left out of the display *shrugs* oh well I can eventually get that. But just letting everyone know they might be out where you are already.

  • Ruthless

    Saw the Hobbit, lots of fun. These are also already available in Canada, at shoppers and wal mart. I got them all except silver, they rock. Maybe we got them early to make up for not getting half of the fall collection in stores.

  • Christine

    Starting in January? Does Canada get Maybelline products sooner because I already picked up Barely Branded from Superstore last week. Plus it was on sale. Wanted to get Inked in Pink too but I controlled myself. XD

    • charlotte

      They did hit Canada sooner, and the UK had the pink even earlier than that. They have been spotted in the US this week.. so I guess with all the interest they decided to move up the schedule, either that or maybe they are going into the permanent displays in Jan. and they are just giving us a pre-release on endcap displays now.

  • ada

    I just got all, except Barely Branded because I already have Barely Beige. I got them at Kmart but the display only fits two of each…not enough 🙁 I took both pinks because my fiend wanted one!
