Maybelline Waves of White & Shady Shores Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline Waves of White 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a cool-toned white with a teal duochrome/shimmer. It has a soft, lightly metallic finish. When applied, I was able to get semi-opaque color payoff. I tried layering, but it does seem to get chunky and create unevenness/patchiness so one layer seemed to work best. It might be nice as an inner corner brightener or layered over black eyeshadow (to bring out the duochrome). It was also, inadvertently, kind of cool painted onto lashes. It’s not a dupe by any means, but since it is within the range, I thought it was worth mentioning: Maybelline Too Cool is a stark, cool white, with no teal shimmer/duochrome sheen. L’oreal Dive Right In is darker, less white, and a powder. Sugarpill Lumi is a loose powder and leans greener. See comparison swatches here.

Maybelline Cool Crush & Seashore Frosts 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadows

Maybelline Cool Crush 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a shimmering, bluish-silver with a frosted, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff. Because it’s on the sheerer side, it may be better as a base underneath your favorite powder eyeshadows than as a standalone color. The consistency is thinner and has more slip than the permanent range of Color Tattoos. The lasting power on me wasn’t as good as the permanent range; there was some faint creasing after ten hours (no primer). Sephora Sweet Dreams is bluer, powder. Maybelline Icy Mint is bluer, not as cool-toned. Bobbi Brown Iced Blue is slightly bluer. Urban Decay Strip is darker, bluer, and a powder. MAC Water & Ice #1 is more silvered and a powder. MAC Free as Air is darker, bluer. Giorgio Armani #12 is more silver and a powder. Benefit Blue My Mind isn’t as cool-toned. Bobbi Brown Iced Blue is lighter, less blue, and a powder.
