Maybelline Precious Metals Color Tattoos Review and Swatches!

 I am a huge Maybelline Color Tattoo fan. I wear them just about everyday for my eyeshadow base. So when I found out that there was going to be a new collection coming out I was pretty excited. Then I found out that the theme of this collection was metals (which means shimmer shimmer and shine) I was even more excited. If you read this blog normally than you know that I love anything that shimmers, shines, or glitters! I finally got my hands on all of the new Metals while I was at Walgreens the other day! I am going to put pictures, swatches, and comparisons below because there are a few colors in this collection that are rather similar to some previously released shades that you may want to skip on. Unless you are like me wherein you need them all. Let's take a look at the collection in it's entirety.

 From left to right: Gold Rush, Inked In Pink, Barely Branded, Electric Blue, and Silver Strike.

                                    These are swatches in the same order of the picture above.
 This is a close up of Gold Rush. It is a bright gold color with a strong yellow undertone.
 Here are Bold Gold, Gold Rush, and Gold Imperial. As you can see they are all in the gold family but are very different. Bold Gold which is one of my favorite Color Tattoos is more of a tan gold and is more subtle. Gold Rush is much more bright and yellow. Gold Imperial is a darker bronze gold.
You can see the difference in these swatches. All 3 of these are beautiful and all 3 I love. Gold Rush has a beautiful shine and is nicely pigmented. It is very buildable and wears a long time.
 This is a close up of Barely Branded and Inked In Pink. Both are very natural subtle shades. Barely Branded is a cream color with a golden sheen. Inked in Pink is a peachy pink with gold shimmer. I found that both of these shades seemed to be a bit thinner than the other colors. They come off a little sheer and feel almost greasy. I don't know if I just need to give them time to dry out or what.
 This is Barely Beige which was from the fall collection next to barely branded. Bother are similar but Barely Beige is a little more tan colored.
Here are Barely Beige, Barely Branded, and Inked in Pink swatched in order left to right. As you can see they are not very pigmented but all three are buildable. These are good as eyeshadow bases or for a soft subtle.

Well my computer is being a little wonky and won't let me attach the other pictures so I am going to publish another post with a continuation of the other two colors and an overall thought.
