So I have to be honest... drug store brands are really upping their game lately! I have a few Maybelline Colour Tattoos kicking around, and was pleased to find out that they were releasing them as a crayon. Personally I find that set up to be a bit easier for on-the-go shadow.
I love that these are twist up crayons. I find sharpening large crayons can be a bit of a pain, and I'm glad that if I take these on-the-go I won't have to worry about bringing a sharper. Speaking about on-the-go I really appreciate that the caps have a satisfying click when they are secured properly. With cheaper crayons I either split the lid trying to secure it, or the lid falls off and my purse gets some extra character. So far so good.
While I naturally lean towards Barely Beige I am really glad I picked a few other colours to try. When swatched x2 each shadow is fairly pigmented.
Barely Beige & Bronze Truffle
In this look I am wearing Barely Beige all over my lid up to my brows. As you can see when actually worn it is a fair bit more sheer. I completed the look with Bronze Truffle over my lid and a quick swipe of mascara. Together these make for a great every day look! I put these on around lunch time and then proceeded to hang out all day with my boyfriend and take the train home from Kingston. I got home around midnight and they were still good as new!
Lilac Lust & Lavish Lavander
Here I am wearing Lilac Lust all over my lid with Lavish Lavender in the outer crease. I put a pop of Barely Beige under my brow. Again it is much less pigmented than when swatched. These also lasted all day! Creasing was minimal and once set I did not find that these smudged.
These swatch much more pigmented than they apply. While you could work them up to that on your eyelid I personally find that too heavy. They still look pretty when less intense. Though I suppose if you wanted a bold look you could use these as a base and then apply shadow on top. Over all I think these are great products and I will be tossing these in my travel make-up bag because they are just so easy to use.
