Maybelline 2012 Fall Scene On The Runway - Ltd Edition 24 hr Edition Color Tattoo Eyeshadows

In the mid-Atlantic region of the
United States, we look forward to crisp Autumn days in September.
It will soon smell like back to school and football season. I'm ready to curl up with a good book and some warm apple cider.
Autumn also brings with it the beautiful change in the colors of the leaves on the trees. Many of us leave the bright bold colors of summer behind and opt for more subtle hues.

Maybelline has once again released some fantastic eyeshadows to assist us in being chic and fashionable this fall.








You may see a display such as the one pictured on the left in your local Rite Aid. It is my understanding that Rite Aid is exclusively carrying these items. They are also limited edition. These retail for $6.69. I was able to procure mine during a Buy1Get1 50% off special. Unfortunately, when I got to the register, they both rang up full price. The manager honored the advertisement and gave me the proper price.
The display also features a brush. I did not buy it.










100 Barely Beige

Many are saying that this Barely Beige is a dupe for MAC Paint Pot in Painterly. I do not own this, so I cannot say for sure that this is true.
















200 Mossy Green

Many are also saying that Mossy Green is a dupe for MAC Paintpot in Moss Scape.
The MAC Paintpot can be applied with a finger.
I found the Maybelline eyeshadows worked best for me when used with a synthetic brush.
I do not use them for their inteded purpose as stand alone eyeshadows, but instead as eyeshadow bases. They intensify the colors of eyeshadows I pack on top.
The MAC Paintpot seems to have a drier texture.
The Maybelline is creamier. I prefer the texture of the Maybelline.







It appears that the MAC Moss Scape has more gold in it than the Moss Green Does.











What do you think?



300 Gold Shimmer
Rich Gold is a warmer Bronze.



















400 Rich Mahogany







Do you have any plans on purchasing any of these beauties?
Which colors appear to stand out to you?

  1. Saw these while out today.. I was wondering if they'd dry out fast.

    1. That's a great question. I haven't owned the originals long enough to say for a certainty. I would venture to guess that so long as the caps are screwed on tightly, you could extend the life of the product. Also, I store mine upside down like I do my MAC Paint Pots. Thanks for your comment.
