I love the Maybelline Color Tattoo. I originally purchased the white shade Too Cool because I was searching for a base when I use my Coastal Scents 88 palette. It works well for a base or simply adding highlight to the inner corner of the eyes.
Its not as pigmented as I hoped. It applies more as a sheer wash over the lids. You can add layers to achieve your desired look. Too Cool contains tiny shimmer particles which makes me wish that it were matte. Sometimes there are days where I don't want to wear shimmer on my eyes.
It retails between $8-10 depending on where you get it from. Color Tattoo may be a cheaper alternative to a product like the MAC paint pot. TEXTURE: The formula resembles a dense cream. Its a bit harder to blend so you have to work fast to spread the product on your eyelids.
DURATION OF WEAR: I have used this for a week as my only eye base for my eyeshadows and was mildly surprised that it was decent at crease prevention. My eyeshadows started creasing by 7-8 hours, which is not bad. Not bad at all. My eyeshadows look pretty much the same at the end of the night when I use the Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance. Both give me the same duration of wear except that the Color Tattoo is half the price of the Too Faced eye primer.
Good for base! I wanna try Bold As Bronze, Tough as Taupe and Bold Gold next!
This palette boasts some awesome neutral colors and after swatching them at Sephora I knew that I had to get it. The Lorac Pro Palette has 16 beautiful neutral shades and comes with a small Lorac eye primer.
The eye primer is THE best eye primer I have ever used. I have tried Urban Decay Primer Potion and the Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance and they still had some creasing. When I tried the Lorac eye primer I was so happy that it had no creasing whatsoever. My shadows lasted ALL day long and I have oily eyelids. Just amazed at how this primer works, and I mean REALLY works. This stuff is just great!
The palette has a velvety feel and I just love holding it and running my fingers on it. The palette is very light weight and thin too.
The shades are so pretty! I love how the first row has all matte eyeshadows and the second row has the shimmery eyeshadows.
The shadows have such great pigmentation. The color payoff is oh so amazing! Just a few light swipes and the color is noticeable. Nude and Champagne are very similar in color though. It was a bit disappointing to see that those two are basically the same color. Taupe doesn't pop so much on my skin, but its easily buildable. The shades are gorgeous and I am in love with this palette.
The Lorac Pro Palette retails for about $42. It is on the pricey side but you get 16 shades and an amazing eye primer. TEXTURE: The eyeshadows feel silky and applies like a dream. The eyeshadows are very easy to blend too! I noted that when you pick up eyeshadow, there's fine powder gathering on the pan. I feel like I'm losing product but it's not biggie. DURATION OF WEAR: Minimal fading through the day, especially with the use of the Lorac eye primer as base.
So very in love with this palette. It has amazing shades for the coming fall season. Its perfect for achieving daytime and nightime looks. The palette offers great variety of shades for versatile looks. The eye primer is AMAZING. I need to buy a regular size tube of this stuff --it's just that great!
Here's a look I created using the Lorac Pro Palette. This was so much fun to do!
