I really love the new Summer 2013 Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Cream-Gel Shadow.  I mean like I REALLY love them.  I bought four locally and drove around for an hour hitting up various drugstores and calling all Ulta’s trying to locate the final two (the duochromes, obv).  It ended up turning into something like “I need to find these all now because I’ve been driving around and I’m not NOT going to find them”.  It’s a sick determination.  Anyway, found em.

The shades are as follows: Cool Crush, Icy Mint, Lavish Lavender, Seashore Frosts, Shady Shores and Waves of WhiteAnd there are two more – Precious Peal and Blue Paradise

Ridiculously pretty.  I can’t even handle it, especially with Seashore Frosts.  They all feel like a gel (solid but wet) and slick on the eye, giving enough time to blend before they set into a powder.  These make fabulous bases for shadows and even alone as a wash of color.  Out of all of them Icy Mint probably was the most sheer, but still clearly looks amazing.

Three are “duochromes” – Seashore Frosts, Cool Crush and Waves of White – though Seashore Frosts is the most noticeable you will be able to see the others work their chrominess better in person.  Shady Shores almost appears duochrome in person as well.

What do you think?  Must have?  Yep.

Tips for finding them, especially if you’re local to my area (Pittsburgh).  Rite-Aid put these out over a week ago and Ulta even more recently.  Each display had two of each color and I was told at multiple locations they weren’t aware of any restocks happening.  CVS and Walgreen’s do not have them yet.  I imagine SOON.  Keep your eyes peeled and your wallets ready.

These Maybelline New York Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Cream-Gel Shadow ($6.99) are limited edition and will be available at select mass retailers nationwide for the month of May 2013 only.

  1. I wore Seashore Frosts today for the first time & I really liked it. I can’t pull off many shades of blue, but this one I totally can. I wore it over UD Primer Potion and it looked perfect 7 hours later.

    • I love that one, it’s totally my fave. I wore it today with LMdB Corinthian over top for a quick eye and everything is still crease free!

  2. Oooo…they are really nice. I don’t own any (and I must soon!) because they only started showing up at my local store finally!! I have a hard time choosing from the ones they have. :D What color would you recommend (the only colors available for now are the original ones)?

    • Definitely Bad to the Bronze! There is a minty looking one too that I don’t have yet, but my eye is on it. I’m so into Mint this season!

  3. Seashore Frosts caught my eye right away too. I’m going to look for it this week.

  4. Did u know there’s two more colors? Precious pearl and paradise blues! Precious pearl is like waves of white but with a pink/gold flash instead, super pretty. Found em at walmart

    • I heard that! I haven’t seen them in any of the displays, though. I’ll keep my eyes peeled at wal-mart, mine doesn’t seem to have anything new out yet =(
