Maybelline’s Painted Purple Color Tattoo cream shadow

This color almost makes me think of Easter candy! It's exactly the right shade for those hollow plastic easter eggs, the marshmallow-fluff egg candies, the color on a lot of easter baskets… This is also one of the few cremes in this collection, and if I apply it too thinly it can start looking like it might want to be semi-sheer. It's more opaque than Purple Snap, and it doesn't apply as patchy as the frost-finish Color Tattoos, but it isn't wholly opaque. (I don't know how this would look on deeper skintones - I suspect it would look less solid, but still have the medium-bright purple color.)
