I finally got a Maybelline Color Tattoo; I've heard all the hype but just never had an overwhelming urge to get one, as I had other great cream color products that work like a base. But when I saw Barely Branded on the new Color Tattoo Metal display, I thought it looked like a color that would brighten up eyes and work as a great base, and wasn't like anything else I had in my collection.
I don't know that there's much more I can add to the Color Tattoo dialogue. I can't use this shade as a base; it creases on me after about 7-8 hours. I know, that's pretty good, but I don't like to have to worry about touching up, so I use this on top of a primer. No biggie! The formula is nice and creamy and blends easily, and this color is really flattering; it's a little frostier than I anticipated based on the color in the pot, but I suppose that's what makes it "metallic". It's a nice pale nude-pink color. Take a look!
