Maybelline Barely Branded 24hr Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow, Pictures and Swatches

Maybelline Barely Branded 24hr Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow ($7) is one of five new shades available in stores now.  In addition to this shade there is also a silver, a pink, a gold and a blue shade. This Color Tattoo Metal collection is a bit different from the usual 24hr Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows in that they have a metallic type finish to them.

Barely Branded is light creamy beige with an almost pearl like finish.  For fair skin tones like mine, you won’t get a punch of color from this one.  It pretty much blends into my skin while giving a bit of shimmer to my eyelids.

This particular color was nice and creamy for me and applies smoothly with a flat firm shader brush.  If you want just a light sheer wash of color, apply it with your fingertips and easily blend it out.  If you want more color, you can use a flat brush and build up a few applications.

As far as wear goes, I still have issues with creasing.  I have oily eyelids and I cannot get more that 4 hours of wear out of this shade, without a primer, before it starts creasing.  With a primer, I can get a full days wear without creasing or fading.

I’d recommend Barely Branded to anyone who wants a nice neutral cream eyeshadow to use as a base color.  For fair skin tones, you will only experience a wash of pearlescent shimmer.  Those with medium skin tones or darker will probably be able to see the color a bit more on the lids.

Another good thing about these 5 new Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal cream eyeshadows is that they are not limited edition.  They will be part of their permanent line so you shouldn’t have trouble finding them.

Available online at Ulta and Target.
