Pics and swatches of the new Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Metal Collection

When I woke up this morning I was certainly feeling the love when I checked my in-box! After my post last night about the new Color Tattoo 24HR Metal Collection that's currently surfacing in Canada (and should be hitting the US soon), I received some extremely helpful emails from some of our lovely neighbors to the north, offering more info and pics. Go Canada! (Big hugs and kisses to all of my Canadian readers out there!)

So let's start with these photos from reader LMC1971, who course spotted this display in Canada, and was nice enough to share some pics:

As you can see, there are five shades here, and I've been told by multiple sources that these are NOT limited edition and will be part of the permanent collection (yay!).

Silver Strike, Inked In Pink, Gold Rush, Barely Branded, Electric Blue

Reader Joanne also spotted this collection and shared some pics (and swatches):

55 Inked In Pink (strikingly similar to "Pink Gold" released in UK months ago based on internet pictures!)
60 Silver Strike
65 Gold Rush
70 Barely Branded (very similar to "Barely Beige", which is just a tad more pinky toned)
75 Electric Blue

Judging by the numbering sequence patterns, they appear to be an extension of the regular line. The label "Limited Edition" is no-where to be found...

For the display, there are no new items besides the ColorTattoo line; it's the MasterDrama liner in the silver shade, Master Precise Liquid Liner in Blackest Black and Gel Liner in Blackest Black

So Gold Rush and Silver Strike are the most similar in texture and finish, both very frosty with small glitter bits. More bold but definitely will be very fun for this holiday season with the parties and dinners. 
Inked in Pink and Barely Branded have the same pearly finish, appropriate for everyday looks. Electric Blue is more of its own story, the finish is nearly matte (kind of unexpected for a cream product), the colour builds beautifully and will make an excellent base for blue powder eyeshadows.

Joanne also kindly did a comparison of the Fall 2012 limited edition shade Barely Beige vs. Barely Branded:

Joanne writes,  "Barely Branded is "very similar to Barely Beige, which is just a tad more pinky toned."

Joanne said that Barely Branded has the same great formula of Barely Beige. This should make those of you who have come to depend on Barely Beige quite happy! You will soon be able to get a very similar shade and not have to worry about it being impossible to find!

Reader Anne purchased three of these new shades and was also kind enough to share some pics and swatches:

Gold Rush is so vibrant, right? I'm sort of obsessing over Inked In Pink as well, and you know I can't even wear pinks near my eyes (but I'm going to try once again!).

And last but certainly not least, my long-time blogging pal Halifax did a great review with swatches of the shades Electric Blue, Barely Branded, Gold Rush and Inked In Pink. Click here for her full review.

And that concludes my coverage of these new 24HR Metal shades (well, at least until I get some, at which time I'll be sure to do some eye looks). 

So...which shades are must-haves for YOU when these hit the US?

Huge thanks to readers LMC1971, Joanne, Anne and Halifax for all of the incredibly helpful info and pics. I can't thank you all enough!

  3. I might need a Barely Branded, i LOVE my beige one so much. I also might try the pink one, since that shade would flatter my eye colour. If i see the jeweltoned ones i want the purple and the green!

  6. I always check your blog for the latest new drugstore makeup, especially the swatches, it's so helpful! Although I'm confused, do drugstore company's publicly announce new products? If so, where?

    1. It varies. It's been my experience that brands don't usually make a big, general announcement; some deliver the news through social media, some will issue a press release to the media (including bloggers), some do it via advertising (magazine ads, TV commercials) and some do it by simply allowing the product to hit store shelves. There's really no one rule that all brands seem to follow. I do my best to keep my readers informed but sometimes I only hear about a new product when I physically see it on store shelves (or a kind reader spots it and shares it with us!). So it really depends on the brand...

  7. Looking forward to Inked in Pink and Barely Branded! Can't wait for these to land in the U.S.! :)

  8. Thank you! I *need* Barely Branded --especially since I missed out on Barely Beige-- and Electric Blue.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I really wish they would come out with matte/creamy color. I'm waiting for a really good dupe for painterly by MAC but not shimmer dupe but a creamy dupe. hope they get on that soon! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Definitely getting Barely Branded! (I found out about Barely Beige so late!) And maybe Inked in Pink too!

    ReplyDelete
  11. inked in pink for sure! I have barely beige...It looks so similar to barely branded, so I guess I don't need it :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I shall hoard them all. I was thinking about your pinks around your eyes problem the other day. What if you paired a neutral type pink like the one above with a warm bronze in the crease? It will make your eyes pull more blue & maybe help kill the redness?

    1. Thanks, hun! I was kicking around the idea of using a brown in the crease, but I like your idea of using a warm bronze...lord knows I own enough warm bronzes! Lol!! Will definitely give that a try, and thank you SO much for thinking of me!! *hugs* you're such a sweetheart.

  20. I want the pink! I was hoping Barely Branded was a matte though - ah well, it's still pretty :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think it is time for me to finally invest in 1 of these,ok maybe 2! Barely Branded looks like something I should have. Inked in Pink too! I will wait for a sale for sure tho'

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am so excited. I love barely beige and have stocked up but its good to know that barely branded is coming soon.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Which shades will be must-haves for me...? ALL OF THEM!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Soo sad I missed out on Barely Beige so barely branded will be mine! MWAHHAHAHA

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oooh I like Barely Branded a lot! I don't own Barely Beige yet either.

    I like the pink and gold ones too. Dunno if I can rock the pink one, but I'll research it some more (look at more swatches) before I commit, haha.

    I'd like to see some more creamy shades, more matte maybe and less shimmery.

  30. Hi,

    I was looking for swatches and came across your post. I just want to let you know that when I asked Maybelline Canada (on their FB page), they told me this was addition to the permanent line. You guys can check out their FB Page and ask them yourself just in case. I was hoping to get something similar to milk. I guess I won't be buying any of them... I can't believe I just said that! I'm proud of myself :)... LOL

  31. I think I have a problem. Every one I see I feel the need to buy. Trying to narrow down my selections. I know I can pass on the gold and silver but having a hard time deciding on the others

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi G! First time commenter, but I love what you do! Since the holidays are coming up, and it's so festive, I was wondering if you could do a comparison of gold eyeshadows. Gold Rush looks beautiful but I'd love to hear what some of your favorites are. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG where are these? I havent seen them in canada.. i so want the pink one!!! Cant wait, i hope we get them soon!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I LOVE the Color Tattoos because they are the only product I have tried thus far that do not crease on me. I live in Ontario and have been on a hunt for barely beige since the LE fall collection came out in stores in October. Unfortunately for me, in those rare times when I did come across the collection barely beige was the only one that was ALWAYS sold out. I managed to get my hands on the other colors from the Fall collection I was interested in but was so let down from searching through so many stores and not even being able to get my hands on Barely Beige. Yesterday I was doing some grocery shopping at The Superstore and of course I could go there and not check out their cosmetic section (it is MASSIVE). I ended up coming across the Metal collection and did not even hesitate before i grabbed Barely Branded. I also got Silver Strike to wear for the holidays. Plan on going back and getting Electric Blue and Inked Pink! I am really loving my CT collection so far!

  35. These are out in the US already! I saw Emily from Beauty Broadcast post on her blog buying one from WalMart. So be on the lookout :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Im in Northern VA & found these tonight ar Walmart!!! I might have gasped a little too loud lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. According to some a vlogger on the YT, they have been spotted at Kmart also in Maryland. Waiting with bated breath for them here in NYC!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I found these at one of my local CVS stores-surprisingly, this is a store that seems to get newer stuff later than the other stores. I found all of the colors except Silver Strike. I picked up Inked in Pink and Electric Blue.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oops I just commented on your other vid not realizing you had this post already :-). I also didn't realize Barely Branded and Barely Beige were the same color although on the eye the look exactly the same to be honest :-).

    ReplyDelete
  40. As of December 29th I own all of them. I got them at Walmart (all the shades) and I live in Mckinney (suburb of Dallas) Texas :-). Don't know if this info is helpful or not, but I hadn't seen them last week and I saw someone commented on December 18th that they still couldn't find them so I am guessing they are still scarce here in the US.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow what state are you in? these are expensive where you live!
