Maybelline’s Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo cream shadow

I managed to get all five of the Leather color tattoos from Ulta, when they were having a nice sale on all Maybelline products. (I love sales. I especially love sales where the items that I very much want to buy, are both included in the sale, and actually in stock.)

This one has a slight tendency to want to apply…less than perfectly even. Not bald patches, but thinner patches. It also reminded me so strongly of the Color Tattoo from the Fall 2012 collection, Rich Mahogany, that I had to triplecheck to see which Color Tattoo I was swatching!

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeliner tube or pencil barrel; top right, the eyeliner applied over bare skin, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the eyeliner applied on the eyelid at the lash line.

If you loved Rich Mahogany, or fell in love with it but didn't manage to snag one, this is not an exact dupe but it captures the character quite nicely.
