Maybelline Limited Edition Fashion Week Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow Haul & Swatches

 I've been on an epic hunt to try and find most of the new Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos that apparently everyone else wants! I've been around to every drugstore in my area and it wasn't until a random stop at Walgreens last night that I found the Fashion Week ones. There's also a separate collection that Maybelline released 4 new colors for fall, which I've only seen at Target!

I don't usually buy this much of the same product at once, but seriously next to blush cream eyeshadows are my favorite makeup items, and all the colors from the Fashion Week collection are neutral. Plus, I wasn't about to try and find this collection again at a drugstore if I decided later on I wanted another color!

So clockwise here are the colors:

Rich Mahogany

Gold Shimmer

Fuchsia Fever

Barely Beige

Mossy Green

Even when I was just swatching I could tell I'm going to really love the formulation of the Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadows, they feel exactly the same as MAC Paint Pots, which you already know are my favorite!

This particular collection also has a lot of MAC dupes. On Making Up the Midwest's blog, you can see her comparison of Barely Beige and MAC Bare Study Paint Pot, which are practically dead on when worn on the eye. On SkinPOREfection's blog, you can see a comparison of Rich Mahogany and MAC Construcitivist Paint Pot which I've thought from the moment I saw online swatches of the Maybelline version would be a dupe! So after buying MAC Idyllic Paint Pot from the Posh Paradise collection last year and then Maybelline coming out with the Pomegranate Punk Color Tattoo which is also a dead on dupe, I will NOT be dropping $18.50 (can you believe they're that expensive now? MAC has lost their damn minds) on a Paint Pot when I can get the exact same color for $5-8!


  1. Ahhh so jealous! I kind of love them all, although the neutral shades are my favourites. These look amaziiing!
    S xx

  2. I have a love hate with the ones I owned. I love them, but I always feel way to makeup-ed up when I use them. If that makes sense. I usually don't wear a lot of color on my eyes. Smokey or natural looks for me. But I definitely will be picking up Barely Beige sometime soon!

    1. I totally know what you mean, I hate that feeling! I have yet to actually wear these out, but I hope they work a little better for me. Barely Beige is definitely a color I think everyone should pick up, its literally perfect!

    2. Thank you! Everyone saids I sound crazy when I say that. I can already tell I'll use beige as my base eyeshadow before I put my eyeliner and mascara on.

    3. Haha maybe the people who don't understand aren't as obsessed with makeup as us ;) xx

  3. I think Mossy Green is the only one that I don't have that I wish I picked up. Oh well :(...I have some of the others and am loving them so much. I also decided to do a giveaway on my blog with two of them since I knew that a lot of people couldn't get their hands on them.

  4. I just finally picked up barely beige! I have been to rite aid, walgreens, wal mart, & cvs! I went to ulta today only to find there display all gone. I asked the lady if she had it and she brought out a new totally stocked display so I grabbed that before I knew I couldn't get my hands on it for an even longer time. yay! I really love it! and btw, the swatches all look really good together & on your hand! lol!

    1. Girl I hear yah, I went to so many places before I could find it! xx
