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.

Is this the same colour that was released in the UK? Here we have one that looks similar called ‘Pink gold’ that was released a few months back.

Can’t wait to get my hands on my UK import!
It’s a shame Maybelline/L’Oréal don’t think us continental Europeans worthy of most of the pretty colours in their product range.

Yes I know, only in the UK though. Where I am not based.
Everywhere else where Maybelline is sold didn’t have this colour – obviously, as it would’ve been pretty nice.

I don’t understand their market decisions sigh.

My color tatto came with these little bubbles on the top as well and I was afraid to use it, but now I see it is not only mine and maybe it is normal?!

I like this one! I wore it on New Years Eve with Nocturnelle e/s in the crease, Fig 1 e/s in the outer v, and Sweet Lust e/s (all MAC) to highlight. Talk about pretty!

It looks so much like Givenchy eyes that kill in sweet fire (though perhaps Givenchy’s is a bit more dull – as in not as bright as this one)! For something that I’m not going to wear everyday, I’ll probably going to go with this one!

I like it when you get me excited for things I just bought. 😀 I think I might just have to whip it out later today and wear it out.

(I have cool-toned skin. I’ll report back later whether it wore pinker on me sheered out!)

Okay, wore it out to dinner tonight. I’d say it definitely wears pinker on my skin. It has almost an underlying silver sheen on me and wears cooler. Gorgeous shade either way. 🙂

It looks gorgeous in the pot and on your arm, but there is no way a pink color looks good on my eyelid or lashline. I just look like I have an infection. Sadly. It’s very pretty and so reasonable.

I would love to see a pic of it on your eyes 🙂 Also I would love to see the barely branded on your eyes. That way I know if i have to run to the drugstore.

I have to ask, is there some sort of secret to applying these? People rave about them, but the three I own all go on patchy and melt off my lids after an hour even with primer.

You’re right, the purple one is the worst culprit! I also had trouble with the silver and taupe colors, but I think I’ll try reapplying them with a better brush and maybe setting them to see if that helps..

I agree with you Claire…I cannot get these to work for me. I’ve tried several colors & have pitched them all in frustration. They crease within an hour on me unless I use a primer & setting powder. I’m better of just using a powder shadow for the work these require for me. Totally bummed because I’m definitely in the minority with these!

I grabbed Barely branded and Inked in pink today! I love the cor tattoos! They don’t crease on me like paint pots! I can’t wait til Temptalia reviews the dark blue one!

FYI: They are buy one at $6.99 and the second one is 50% off at my Walgreens in Chicago now! I would totally recc to grabs couple!

bring me a matte or satin finish, i’ll lap it up. i m over shimmer in my eye products. pass for me. but i m sure it’s great stuff for what it’s supposed to do. a brown matte, 1, like the mac paint pots. yeah!!!

I’ve had success with mixing a fingertip of these with a tiny bit of Urban Decay’s Eden Primer Potion. Cuts the metallic down to a satin.

I love the tattoo collection from maybelline. I went crazy looking for these. I finally found them at Walgreen s. Can’t wait to try them out!

This color makes me excited. Can’t wait to give it a try. I really like that it’s not such a strong color as some of the other Color Tattoos

So glad they have a lighter pink.. it’s a very usable color for me. Anyone who is afraid of the shimmer just put on a light layer and top it with a less shimmery shadow, the shadow sticks really well and covers the shimmer just fine.

I have this color and, for whatever reason (maybe I just got a bad one?), it does not have the staying power of the other Color Tattoos. I’ve tried it on it’s own, over a primer, setting it with a powder eye shadow, applying it with my finger and applying it with a brush, but it just smears right off no matter what.

This product looks phenomenal under Mac’s Beautiful Iris! I bought this specifically for that color because alone Beautiful Iris looks a bit ashy on me.
