If Maybelline Color Tattoo in Creamy Beige were a piece of clothing, it would be a pair of jeans. Not because of a color resemblance, but because jeans are one of those versatile items that can be either dressed up or dressed down and will (almost) always be appropriate. Pair them with flats and a blouse for an office look, a T-shirt and sneakers to go grocery shopping or an off-shoulder top and pumps to hit the clubs.
You can do exactly the same with Creamy Beige, a long-lasting cream eyeshadow by Maybelline. Wear it on its own as a wash of color to achieve the ever-so-chic no-makeup makeup, add green, blue or purple eyeliner in the waterline for an extra oomph, pair it with a bright lipstick to look put together, but not overdone.
I usually apply it all over the lid and slightly above the crease with a fluffy brush, but it’s so blendable and easy to work with that you can get away with just using your finger. Once it sets, it won’t budge all day (I always use a primer though, just as with any other eyeshadow).
It’s perfect for when you’re lazy and/or in a rush, not only because it takes 10 seconds to apply, but also because you don’t really need to think about what to pair it with… Anything will look great! I think any girl that wears makeup should have this eyeshadow in her collection.
In the collage above, you can see it swatched next to the Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe (Tough As Taupe in certain countries), paired with Maybelline SuperStay 14HR Lipstick in Infinitely Fuchsia (or Fuchsia Forever in certain countries – as a side note, I absolutely love this lipstick!), and with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deep End.
