Swatch: Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Light In Purple

I was pretty impressed with Maybelline's creamy yet utterly budge proof Color Tattoo eyeshadows when I tried them a month or so ago.  My original review had an on eye swatch of Rose Gold, the more wearable, neutral pink shade I bought, but it didn't contain an on eye swatch of Light In Purple, the shimmering blue which appears to have a purple duochrome in the pot.

As you can see, there's no purple to be seen once it's applied to the eye.  This makes me sad.  I feel slightly cheated by that gentle flash of purple duochrome.  Granted, as frosty pale blues go, this one is rather nice, but I still wish it lived up to its purple promise.

At least it's pretty damn cheap at only £4.99.  Find it at your local Superdrug, Boots, or other Maybelline stockist now.

  1. That is so disappointing - it is nice but like you I wish it had the purple flash...

  2. I searched it on my hand as I've bought it and the purple does show when you hold it at an angle
