Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments

     Happy July 4th everyone! I thought as a special treat for this July 4th I would finally do my much awaited review on the new product from the Maybelline Color Tattoo line, Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments!! I have been wanting these since I first saw them in my local Wal-Mart two weeks ago and I finally snatched one up today (Courtesy of my daddy :) ) I must say that I couldn't wait to try it out and I am not disappointed. I love pigments and these really are no exception. I only got one for the purposes of this review since it is a brand new product released officially only a few days ago.

     To start off, the packaging is similar to the cream shadow color tattoos in shape. However, it is plastic (and won't hurt your foot if you just so happen to drop it like I did with one of my bulky color tattoo creams.) and it doesn't have so much wasted space within the packaging. I was able to purchase one at Wal-mart for only $5.99 plus tax (prices vary from store to store and state to state). This is for a 1.5 gram jar. The only thing I was conflicted on in regards to the packaging is the sifter on the top. When you open the lid it reveals a sifter like you would find on any loose face powder. On one side, if you dropped it while it was open, you would not spill it everywhere. On the other hand, you can't reach the powder directly like with a Mac pigment. I am sure you could take the sifter out but I usually make a mess when I try to do that.
     The product itself is great. I purchased the color "Buff & Tuff" and I swatched a little on my hand and at first couldn't see it except for the beautiful glitter it contained. These colors are very true to what the powder in the pot looks like. I ended up getting a color that almost exactly matches my skin tone which is why the color doesn't pop on my skin. That was simply a mistake on my part, but I wanted something I knew I would use since I tend to fall more towards neutral colors. When I arrived home, I took my Nyx jumbo eye pencil in Milk and drew a nice little patch of white to help show the true pigmentation of this product. (pictured below) As you can see it does have a nice pigmentation to it.

This picture does not do the color justice. :/

     Overall this is a great product and well worth the money. Now that I know I like the product, I will be going to purchase more!! :) I hope everyone found this review helpful, if you have any questions about these product or any other product you would like me to review, feel free to post in the comments below! :) Thanks!

Update 7/27/13: After using this for a few weeks, I have found that the glitter does fall all over your face a good bit. It's fine for me because it created a nice nighttime look, but just be cautious of that!!
