Maybelline’s Edgy Emerald Color Tattoo cream shadow

Maybelline’s Edgy Emerald Color Tattoo cream shadow

This may seem like odd phrasing, but this shade is like a bright deeper mint green. It's got more presence than most mint shadows or polishes that I've seen - I don't know if it's brighter, or if the color is deeper, but I'll probably figure it out one day at 3 in the morning. (That's just how my brain works.) “Edgy” is definitely a good word choice for this color! The application can be a little bit uneven, but it...

I think Benefit has a few cream shadows that are a similar shade, but none exactly this shade. The ones that I have are all shimmers, as well - not cremes. I think that one of MAC's Paint Pots might be close to this shade, but softer. I really like seeing this shade in the Color Tattoo collection! It's an excellent basic shade at a great price point and easy availability.

This color interested me when I saw the first promos, and it thrilled me when I got a bottle and applied it. A classy muted sage-mint green with excellent consistency and spreadability, I got even, smooth, fully opaque coverage with just two coats. I was amazed! The quality is great, and I absolutely love this color and how it looks on me. It's difficult to say, since it's so very early in 2012; but I wouldn't be surprised if this turned...

This is almost a cousin to Caitlin and Kelly. (In fact, I could probably do a really cool-looking ombre nail with those three polishes: Kelly, to Caitlin, to Carey. Or possibly Kelly-Caitlin-Kristen.) Application was smooth, but I did notice that the polish seemed just a bit watery. (Which, I suppose, is better than it being too thick.) Be careful not to overload the brush with this, or you'll have pools of polish at the cuticle-line.

This is almost an electric blue! In fact, this is nearly the same shade as the Electric Blue jumbo eye pencil from NYX…but in a cream shadow form. I'm not quite sure why this shade was named “teal”, since there isn't much teal or even green tones in the color. Then again, NYX can't have all the fun naming colors misleadingly. (Really, NYX? Something called Sunny Day is a fuchsia-pink? Same with the color Lemon Drop?!??) But odd-ish color...
