Maybelline Color Tattoo Inked in Pink, Too Cool, & Barely Branded Swatches

Inked in Pink and Barely Branded are part of the new Metal collection.  Silver Strike, Gold Rush, and Electric Blue are the other three shades, shown in the photo below (courtesy


Too Cool is part of the original Color Tattoo collection, although it's no longer on Maybelline's website.  Has it been discontinued?  I have no idea, sorry!

Inked in Pink is a shimmery warm pink.  This would be a bit too warm for me to wear alone, but a cooler pink patted over it makes it work fine.


Too Cool is a shimmery, cool white, and works great alone or as a base.


Barely Branded - I'm a bit let down by this one.  In all but the picture directly above, it appears to be a barely there nude shade, super light beige, but in person, and as you can see in this close up, it's much more golden/yellow on me.  My skin is very pink though, so if you're warm or neutral this shouldn't be a problem.  These make good bases, so it won't go to waste though!


You can find these in the usual places, prices range from $5.99 to $6.99.   I didn't buy these, a friend gave them to me.  I had purchased Too Cool last January, but it's about gone, so it was nice to get a free replacement plus the two new shades.

Hope you've found the swatches helpful, and thanks for looking.
