Maybelline Color Tattoo Leather in Deep Forest

Maybelline has recently released a new line of Leather Color Tattoos! I'm a huge fan of the original Color Tattoos, and I've tried almost every shade, so I was excited to try out the new Leather formula. I've been trying out Maybelline's Color Tattoo Leather in Deep Forest*, but unfortunately it hasn't impressed me as much as the original formula has.

  • Cream eye shadow formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant
  • Leather Lush with a creamy touch!" - Maybelline

The Leather Color Tattoos come packaged the same way as the original line - in little glass pots with a black plastic lid. The colour I got is Deep Forest, a mossy green shade. In the pot, this colour looks like it would be perfect for Fall. Unfortunately, the formula fell short. This colour applies very sheer and patchy. Multiple layers don't help to build up the opacity very much, and the colour just gets patchier with each additional layer. This formula is matte, and it has a very slick texture to it. I was really sad that the formula was so different from the original line, which has become such a popular product!

Unfortunately Maybelline's Color Tattoo Leather in Deep Forest fell short, and I just wouldn't recommend picking it up. I would definitely recommend trying out any shade from the permanent line of Color Tattoos, because those are excellent. Deep Forest was just very sheer, patchy, and hard to work with. Have you tried out any of Maybelline Color Tattoo Leathers? Did you have better luck with any of the shades in the collection?

  2. Creamy beige was the only shade from the collection that worked like the originals for me :( The other shades were..well.. pretty shitty!

    1. Ya, I was really surprised by this one! The original formula is so great!
