LA Colors eye shadow palette in Marigold swatches+review

This post was one I have been dreading for a while! hahahaha Yeah, I've put up eyeshadow posts before, no problem! But this one, well, it didn't look good at all. AT ALL.  As you guys know, I just recently really got into makeup. I didn't know what difference real make brushes would make.

The Perfect Gray/Brown Eyeshadow

Lately, I've been reviewing a lot of new products that have been released in 2012 on my blog, and one of my favorites is Maybelline's new Color Tattoo eyeshadow.  It's a cream eyeshadow in a pot, and unlike most cream eyeshadows that crease and slide off, these truly stay put all day. One of my favorite colors is Tough as Taupe- its the perfect blend of gray and brown.  I use it alone, or sometimes layer it under either gray or brown shadow, depending on the look I'm going for.  It makes a fantastic eyeshadow base for poweder shadows! ...more
