More than Cream: Maybelline Goes Metallic with Barely Branded

Maybelline Barely Branded Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm, creamy beige with a frosted, metallic finish. MAC Dazzlelight is whiter, less yellow/warm. MAC Brule reminded me of it, just matte and powder. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical was the closest in color–fairly close–but is a powder product. I think MAC Bare Study is whiter, less warm-toned.

I see this shade being very versatile and easily becoming a go-to eyeshadow base for a good portion of people. The shimmer when it sheers out is nice, and what I liked more about it was that it sheered out evenly so it could be easily used as a wash of color for when you’re pressed for time. The best news of all, of course, is that it did in fact wear for a full twelve hours without creasing or fading when I tested it.  It had a nice creamy consistency that made for quick and easy application, and it built up color well–I’d say use less for sheer color, because it is was nicely pigmented. I was able to get opaque color in one layer using a flat, firm brush (like MAC’s 249).  I picked it up at my local Walgreens, but it IS available online NOW! (YAY!) at ULTA. ULTA also has a deal for $10 off any $60 purchase with code 89776.
