Maybelline Color Tattoo Swatches: Tenacious Teal & Tough As Taupe

Alright there’s been a ton of hype about these babies, and it’s well-deserved. I’m not even gonna beat around the bush and just say this: they’re fan freaking tastic.

Swatched above are Tenacious Teal and Tough As Taupe. Tenacious Teal has a bit of a shimmer to it as you can see, and Tough as Taupe is a delicious matte.

Don’t be fooled by how sheer it looks on my hand. I applied only the lightest swatch I COULD. You can totally layer these and build on them. In fact that’s how I recommend you go about wearing them, because they dry really fast. You must blend quickly or you’re toast. But once they set, they wear like iron. I am truly shocked at the tremendous quality of these. These are a product that totally lives up to all the hype. Now that I’m working full time again and getting ready quickly in the morning, I know I can just grab the taupe shade and layer a little on and go.

I’m so pleased with the two shades I picked up that I picked up two more yesterday! I got Bad to the Bronze and Bold Gold (can you tell I’m a neutral girl?!). I do plan on adding even more to my stash, too. Audacious Asphalt, Too Cool, Painted Purple, and Edgy Emerald are all on my list. Not so much Pomegranate Punk or Fierce & Tangy. I really don’t think those colors would look good on me at all, haha. Anything in the reddish orange family tends to make me look like I have an eye infection rather than look good. However, for those of you with darker skin and/or warmer undertones, they’re pretty unique shades and you should definitely check them out.

These range from $6.99 to $7.99 in drugstores, and are Buy One Get One 1/2 Off at RiteAid and Ulta right now! I got a coupon on my last RiteAid receipt…guess where that’s going? :)

Have you tried these? Do you love love love them as much as I do? Post a comment and let me know! Feel free to link to your reviews of them as well.
