Anyway, back to the Fall Collection. I was so lucky and stumbled upon a nearly untouched display at Wags yesterday. I immediately snatched up all four Color Tattoos and two duochrome nail polishes. The EyeStudio quads also looked quite interesting, and I decided I couldn't leave them behind. So today I have swatches of all the eyeshadow quads and Color Tattoos for you!
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Beige
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Mossy Green
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Gold Shimmer
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Rich Mahogany
In short, I'm absolutely in love with these. They are the perfect compliment to my current collection of Color Tattoos. They'll make perfect bases for the deeper or neutral looks I like to do. If you like Color Tattoos, you need all of these. I'm sorry, but it's the truth!

Maybelline EyeStudio quad in Olive Martini
Maybelline EyeStudio quad in Cozy Cashmere
These are a bit more of a mixed bag.
Sea Sprite is my least favorite. The first 2 colors are pretty and shimmery, but the teal and forest green applied so patchy and chalky. I'm not sure how they'll perform on the eye but I doubt it'll be that great.
Smokey Cinnamon is okay in terms of quality. The colors are quite glitter heavy. I'm just not digging the color combination personally, so I'm going to say this one is a pass.
Olive Martini's first color is a dud. It's a sheer pink shimmer that pretty much disappears on my skin, except for the glitter. The other 3 colors are great, however. You may have noticed that Too Faced Label Whore/MAC Blue Brown pigment dupe. Seems like there's a million colors like this these days: reddish brown with green interference. It's pretty neat, though, and if you want the dupe I'd recommend this one.
The standout of this group for me was Cozy Cashmere. The first color is metallic beigey perfection. It reminds me a lot of the first color in the L'Oreal Electrified HiP duo. The last two colors are interesting mattes. The third is orangey brick, and the last is red brick. I don't think I've seen colors like this at the drugstore before. It's going to look amazing on green and blue eyes. This is the only 'must have' out of the quads for me.
So there you have it! What do you think? Are you going to hunt for these limited edition releases?
