Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo Summer Limited Edition

Hi there everyone, today I have a review of two of the colors from the limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo line launched for Spring/Summer 2013. I was interested in these because I have four other colors from the collection they released for Fall 2012, and I really like them.
If you are not familiar with the Color Tattoo line they are long wearing cream shadows, similar to Mac Paint Pots, or Make Up Forever Aqua Creams. 

This first color is shade #20 Waves of White. It is a white base with bluish/purple shimmer. It has a bit of a duo chrome effect to it where it looks a little more plain white at one angle, and then more icy blue at another. While I love this color, it is not for everyday, you could lightly apply it as a base if you wanted but any layering results in a very frosty look. I did a sort of galaxy inspired eye with it, adding some pinks purples and blues and it looked gorgeous, but it was an intense look. 

The second shade I picked up is #40 Seashore Frosts. This color is absolutely gorgeous and slightly more wearable than Waves of White. It is a cornflower blue base with a bronzy gold shimmer running through it. It is more duo chrome than the last shade so it is slightly hard to do it justice in a photograph, but at one angle it looks blue, and the next a very shimmery neutral brown. This color can be used as a base for another look or worn on its own on the lid blended into the crease for a pop of color. I tried it with a little bit of a bronze-gold shadow blended into the crease and it looked amazing, very summer-y. 

To wrap it up, if you are a fan of cream shadow I would recommend giving the collection a look, I picked mine up at Walgreens. They run about 7 dollars each, Walgreens was having a buy one get one 50% off sale on Maybelline when I got mine, so it was nice to save a bit of money. 

Have any of you tried Maybelline Color Tattoos, what did you think? What are your favorite eye shadow colors for summer?

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading,
