Maybelline Inked in Pink Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow
A Warm Pink That Works
Maybelline Inked in Pink Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a pinky-mauve with a frosted, metallic finish. When it’s sheered out, it loses some of the pinkness as it lays over my naturally warm skin tone (so on cooler complexions, it might look pinker when sheered out). MAC Sweet Acting is lighter. MAC Rose Light is a touch lighter. Urban Decay Provocateur is a bit more mauve and glittery. Urban Decay Bordello is more mauve. MAC Neo Nebula is very comparable.
I wore this alongside Barely Branded, and it lasted a full twelve hours without fading, creasing, or smudging. It also worked well as a complement to Barely Branded and both were easy to blend into each other so it didn’t look too divided (but I didn’t want to blend too much, as I was primarily testing wear). It applied with full color coverage without needing to layer the product on, so I would say this is quite pigmented and you’ll want to use less if you intend to sheer it out. The consistency was creamy and lightweight, and once it dried down, it was set for the day.
