Maybelline’s Grey Crystal Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon

Grey that…somehow manages to look like it has green undertones. I do like that this color hasn't been represented in the Color Tattoo lineup to date. It's genuinely new. The finish is decent, and the application is easy enough, but I had some problems getting an even finish. Once I did even it out, the shadow looked nice and lasted well. Despite that, I personally prefer the jarred Color Tattoos and cream shadows. The pencil formula, even without the need to sharpen (and thus lose product) still has a few issues…like the entire product falling out of the tube and nearly hitting the floor. (Yeah. I could have done without that excitement.)
