Frugal Find Friday

Today’s Frugal Find Friday post is all about the Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigements that were released about a month ago. I have the colors Barely Brazen and Breaking Bronze. I love my natural eye look I go for on most days, but I thought adding a little shimmery pigment might give it a little boost.

I’m not a huge fan of the packaging of these pigments, but I notice that most pigment eyeshadows are packaged similarly. The cap twists off and there’s a sifter inside that dispenses the product. It can be super messy, but I try to keep it as neat as possible. Below is a swatch of the pigments on top of a primer

Barely Brazen is a gorgeous champagne color that has pink shimmer in it. It’s really pretty in the inner corner of the eyes. Breaking Bronze is a gorgeous bronze color that has a bit of gold shimmer in it.

I decided to try these Color Tattoo Pure Pigments on top of some similar colored Color Tattoo Cream shadows. I used Barely Branded (from the metal line) as a base for Barely Brazen pigment, and I used Bad to the Bronze (Regular line) as a base for Breaking Bronze. Oh… it was AMAZING!! The pigments were so much brighter and so pretty! This picture really doesn’t do it justice. I’ll post a picture of what it really looks like on the eyes soon so you can see, and I’ll link it here.

I’ve been so blown away with the gorgeous combination of Bad to the Bronze and Breaking Bronze that I featured both in my July favorites post here. Overall, I really love these pigments and I love them even more over the color tattoo cream shadows! I can’t wait to pick up more colors and this time I might go for something a bit more adventurous like green or blue! Thanks for reading and have an awesome weekend! 🙂
