In case you haven't heard, it is currently Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. Maybelline New York is the official sponsor of the show. Have you seen any of the Maybelline end caps at the drugstore? They feature some great limited edition Scene on the Runway fall products. They are certainly eye catching. As I have read so much about the Color Tattoo Shadows and never having tried them, I knew I had to try these and now. The colors are gorgeous! Of course, I had to have all four shades.
I like the formula and how pigmented the shadows are. You only need a small amount of product for the color pay-off I demand. To get the ultimate wear, make sure to use an eyeshadow primer.
In addition to the new shadows, Maybelline launched the perfect brush for applying the cream gel shadows.
It is a dense, stiff, flat brush that helps apply the shadows with ease. I dab the color on the lid with this new brush, then blend with a fluffier brush after the formula has set for a few seconds. To clean the brush in between colors, just swipe it on a tissue.
Look for the special displays at your favorite drugstores now. I had a hard time finding all four colors in stock at one location. I actually purchased one at CVS, one at Rite Aid, and two at Walgreens. I didn't find any of the special displays with the new fall products in either Target that I checked. I paid $6.99 for each shadow at Walgreens and Rite Aid, and $7.39 each at CVS. I did score $3.00 in CVS Extra Bucks for a $10 Maybelline purchase at CVS too, because of course I purchased a few more goodies.
