Maybelline Color Tattoos - Limited Edition 2012 and Fall Shades

Maybelline has added eight limited edition shades to their 24-Hour Color Tattoo range.  The first four I found in my local drugstore in a display with the limited edition Great Lash Mascara shades.  Other than the seal, there is no difference from the Color Tattoo shades in their permanent range.

The four shades are:

Blue On By
Fuchsia Fever
Ready, Set, Green
Test My Teal



Here are close-ups of each shade:

In addition to these, there are four additional shades being offered under the Fall 2012 Scene on the Runway collection.

The four shades are:

Barely Beige
Gold Shimmer
Mossy Green
Rich Mahogany

While I was fortunate to get my hands on these lovely, limited edition shades, I was not lucky enough to get them on sale ($6.99 each).  As I eager to get them and feature them on my blog, I was not patient enough to wait for a sale.  Perhaps, I will get my back-ups on sale.

The Fall 2012 display also featured an eyeshadow brush ($2.99) so I purchased that as well.  The brush appears to have natural bristles and a fairly decent length handle.  It is easy to wash and dries quickly.  I used baby shampoo and noticed no shedding.  The brush appears to be different from the Maybelline Expert Tools Eyeshadow brush in that the ferrule is black and brush appears to be more tapered and rounded.



Overall rating:  Booyah!  I love the fact that Maybelline is expanding their shade range with this product.  However, I think that the Fall shades, being more neutral and warm, should be added to their permanent collection.  As with the initial Color Tattoo shades, I found better wearability with a primer.  All shades were nicely pigmented though I noticed that Blue on By and Fuchsia Fever were slightly temperamental, though not as bad as what others experienced with Painted Purple, from the permanent range.

Have you found any of these?  What are your thoughts?
