Maybelline Caramel Cool Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Caramel Cool Color Tatoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline Caramel Cool Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of six new shades of Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow that launched with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Spring 2014 Collection.

Let’s take a look!

Maybelline Caramel Cool Color Tattoo Eyeshadow doesn’t quite match up to the shade name as it isn’t really a caramel shade. This is a coppery penny shade with a high metallic sheen. The color has a vibrant pigment with a dense yet slightly slippery texture that blends easily onto lids without tugging. The color has a smooth even finish and a wear of eight or so hours on my drier lids without fading or creasing.

I think some are naturally wary of newer shades of Color Tattoo due to the fact we got a bit burned with the Summer 2013 shades but I have to say they aced it with the Dare to Go Nude shades. If anything at all it even feels like improved on the texture slightly as they are a creamy and slightly slick so they ease on down the road during application and set to a smooth finish. Many of these shades have a nice metallic sheen to them too but ARE NOT frosty which is great for me as metallic finishes tend to go a bit frosty on me.

Caramel Cool is probably one of my favs of the shades launched and well worth a pick up!

I didn’t purchase these my friend did and he got them at Harmons drugstore so that’s a good place to search them out as well as Christmas Tree Stores or Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Good Luck finding them!

I purchased this item.

    I bought this shade last night and as soon as I swatched it I thought of you and thought–Oo, the texture is better than the slippery ones–I bet the Muse will be excited! I just have to say, I am constantly on my phone at the store looking up your reviews of something before I get it. I love your blog! 😀

    I had heard these were popping in CVS, so I went to my one today day that usually has the best selection and they didn’t have them. Boooo I NEED to buy all of these!!! They still had a fall maybelline display up……get on it CVS!!!!

    Muse, thats a nice color, but the real question is, what is on your lips? Super pretty!!

  • Andrea

    Muse! I gotta say I love love love how you rave the Color Tattoos, BUT I also hate it ’cause they’re expensive as balls in Canada!!!

    And oh, man, I wish you were Canadian. We have this brand, Quo, at Shoppers Drug Mart and their stuff is soooo pretty and so many LE collections that are even prettier and everything is gorgeous and I’m scared to try any of it out lest it turn out to be a waste of money!

    I mean I know drugstore brands are the devil and a half most of the time but then they come out with things like these Color Tattoos (see how I got myself back on topic there? 😉 ) and my head spins!

    • Isabella Muse

      man the price jump in Canada is downright scary! I was in Halifax last Summer and was absolutely appalled at Shopper’s Drug prices! No matter how many times or where I am in Canada I am just always so shocked at the price jump even chocolate has a scary price! I actually have some pieces from Quo but I’m always disappointed I can’t get more of the LE stuff ;-D lol! awww Hugs! I understand believe me I do!

      • Andrea

        Muuuuse why didn’t you tell us you were at Shoppers?! Midsummer is the worst time, you gotta come in early Fall or late November, that’s when the super pretty LE goodies are hanging around! Plus I rely on you to tell me whether something’s a MUST BUY or a pass over! hehe

        • Isabella Muse

          sorry lol I didn’t think anyone would care 😀 I’ll surely give you my list next time I am Canada so you can give me the pass or go hehe!

          • Andrea

            I’ll hold you to it! XD sigh big reason I love visiting the US is ’cause everything is so freaking cheap there!!

  • Debbie

    Looks great on you Muse! I did break down and buy this color (online from eBay)& I LOVE it on my blue eyes! I only wish they would make all these colors permanent. I never did find the matte Fall(?) collection with the nude pink, brown, & beige. I don’t think they ever came to my area,, & I looked constantly for them. I really wanted those. 🙁

    • Isabella Muse

      hi debbie! thanks chica! I’m glad it worked well for you 😀 aw sorry 🙁 I hope they repromote those at some point!

      • Debbie

        You’re quite welcome Muse! And thank you, you’re right,,who knows? Maybe Maybelline will come out with them again at some point. (crossing fingers & toes). ;D

        • Isabella Muse

          I am too! ;-D I surely hope so as they were fab shades!

  • Melissa

    Thank you so much for this review 🙂 do you think this Tattoo compares To the originals texture wise or to the limited edition metallic shades? I love the originals like bad to the bronze but the white and pink metallic shades were very slippery and creased so badly on my oily eyelids 🙁 thank you so much in advance because I’m Australian and have to purchase these from the US because Maybelline doesn’t release limited edition over here 🙁 xx
