A sandy seashore is the setting for the new Maybelline Limited Edition Summer 2013 Color Tattoos
The Limited Edition Maybelline Color Tattoos released for Summer 2013 are starting to pop up, so you should be spotting them soon in your local drugstores in a special display*. There I was, my long-range pirate-y telescope in hand, when from the bird’s nest of my pirate-y ship I spied these little jewels glistening on the sandy seashores of my local beauty department. “LAND HO!”
Okay, so maybe I was madly searching them out for a week or so, but I finally got my hands on them to share with you! Here are swatches and photos of six (of the eight) new for Summer 2013 Color Tattoos in all of their glistening glory!
Maybelline Summer 2013 Color Tattoos: All 8 shades shown in this post (swatched below)
Maybelline Summer 2013 Color Tattoos – they are always so pretty – like little jewels!
Precious Pearl – a soft creamy white with slight sparkle
Waves of White – a softly pigmented iridescent white
Shady Shores – a pale golden shade with iridescence
Swatched – L to R: Precious Pearl, Waves of White, Shady Shores

Cool Crush – a beautiful cool blue-silver shade
Lavish Lavender – a pale metallic lavender shade

Blue Paradise – a blue with periwinkle shift
Seashore Frosts is a unique shade, looking mostly a blue-purple in the pot it swatches with more of a coppery/gold shade with hints of blue shift.
Swatched L to R: Blue Paradise, Seashore Frosts
There are a total of eight Limited Edition shades in the Summer 2013 Color Tattoos Collection – wow, that is massive! When I originally posted this article, I hadn’t found Seashore Frosts and Blue Paradise, but I was able to find them and added in the swatches above.
These shades are shimmery, and some (as noted above) are more on the sheer side, but would be great used as eyeshadow bases. Others like Lavish Lavender and Cool Crush are pretty pigmented and could be used as a more solid wash of color on the lids. In any case, I find in general the Maybelline Color Tattoos are easy to build up if you let each layer dry. I like to use these both as an eyeshadow base and as a quick and easy-wear lid color. I find if I do not wear a thick layer of the Color Tattoos I am fine without using a base. When layering I do use a base to prevent creasing. The shades in this collection overall are light, metallic and soft shades to work with for summer. My top picks of these would be Precious Pearl, Cool Crush and Lavish Lavender. Icy Mint is a good idea, but it is very sheer and I wish it had the punch that Cool Crush has. The shades I just found Blue Paradise and Seashore Frosts are very gorgeous. Seashore Frosts is a little different than it looks in the pot – it is mostly a shimmery pale copper-blue – very unique and iridescent. Blue Paradise is a pale blue with periwinkle shift to it. Again, very pretty!
