Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal by EyeStudio

Color Tattoo Cream-Gel Shadows from Maybelline are a big favorite here and from what I hear, they're loved by most .

I love them because they stand up to my makeup melt and last longer than most shadows. They also make great bases and blend well with powder shadows.

Now hitting shelves in January are new  Color Tattoo Metal . These are more metallic than the originals. It's interesting since some of the first ones were fairly metallic.  I love a metallic eye so I am thrilled to see more.

My favorite  of the first ones was Bold Gold and I use it constantly . We have a new gold  in Gold Rush this time, which is more of a yellow gold and brighter.

Also there is Electric Blue , a  pretty royal/navy , Barely Branded, a barely there pearly nude and Silver Strike, a shiny silver. Not shown is a pink shade.  There are 5 new Metal shades in all.

These have the same consistency as the others and I feel have good pigment but I needed 2 layers of Electric Blue to get the color I wanted. The gold went on in one layer.  Also the blue isn't as metallic as the gold and silver. The blue is definitely shimmery but the gold and silver are total pretty disco balls. In fact  Gold Rush is a nice dupe for the new , fabulous Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Vision, although believe  it or not, the Chanel has far more glitter. 

All are very pretty and will find a place in my stash. I see myself , again, using the gold shade , Gold Rush, most of all, but  Electric Blue will get more use too, I think. I am not a big blue shadow fan , but this shade of blue is the only one I  wear. It reminds me of Urban Decay's 24/7 in Binge,  the only blue I have that I use.

Look for these next month ( or sooner) for $ 6.99
