Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Icy Mint
The Maybelline Icy Mint Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow was a shade I was hopeful about but like all the Maybelline Color Tattoo Summer 2013 Eyeshadows it didn’t have a good run. Not sure what happened with the formula here but some folks profess they LOVE the Summer shades and others, like me, rant them as being awful.
Take a peek at Icy Mint, you decide.
Maybelline Icy Mint Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows is one of EIGHT new, limited edition shades that Maybelline launched for Summer 2013. I’m sitting here right now and wishing Summer away so that I can dream about Maybelline potentially gifting us with Fall 2013 shades that are better than these Summer ones. Right?
Icy Mint is soft iridescent green that reflects blue and aqua. It’s all about the frost here but not about the color unfortunately as this applies very sheer. Sheer can be ok but unfortunately like most of the Summer colors application is a pain. The formula is slippery and thinner and applies streaky and blends out to a patchy finish. The color takes a fair bit longer to set than the original Tattoo formula which results in creasing and fading. As I blend the unevenness of the finish becomes more and more evident and I get patchy layers of shadow combined areas of my lid that is bare as they seem to blend away as I work.
Unfortunately even as I base I have headaches as the color seems to fade and crease powder and pigment eyeshadows due to the slower set time.
Another shade that just didn’t quite work out.
Count me surprise as the Tattoo Eyeshadows were an instant hit for many and the introduction of new shades made for some happy fans. But after trying the formula many were disappointed including myself.
