Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chromes at Walmart

So yesterday I posted about how the new Maybelline Color Tattoos Eye Chromes have landed at Walmart. Thanks so much to reader @leenchristine on Instagram for sharing the pic above of the display (which I also enlarged/cropped for you below, for a closer look).

These new liquid shadows are also now available on the Walmart website HERE for $7.49 each (free in-store pick-up). But as of the time of this post, only nine of the ten shades are available.

Speaking of the ten shades, I am so excited to be able to share swatches of all ten shades with you today, thanks to reader @idreaminbeauty on Instagram. Check this out:

Top Row: Gunmetal, Sapphire, Gilded Rose, Beige Luster, Khaki Kool
Bottom Row: Fool's Gold, Bronze Sheen, Electric Emerald, Sharp Purple, Silver Spark

As you can see, all of these shades are shimmery metallics ("chrome" is in the title, so duh!) and some of them also contain glitter. Definitely check out @idreaminbeauty's full review of these, including some eye swatches, in her blog post HERE if you'd like to know her thoughts about the texture, staying power, etc.

Have you spotted these in your area yet? If so, I'd love to know where you found them!

Thanks so much, @idreaminbeauty, for the great swatches, and @leenchristine for the additional display pics!

  1. I can safely pass on these. Maybelline is ruining the color tattoo name for me. They should spend more time putting out new and unique shades of the original product.

    1. I completely agree! I love the originals and would prefer they either bring back LE shades and make them permanent, or come up with new shades. I don't care for the crayon-type ones or these new ones.

    2. Definitely bring back the limited edition shades. In the 2 years since I discovered the Eye Tattoos I have only been able to find one limited edition color before they were sold out (Hydrangea Hype). Amazon came through though, just bought Seashore Frost, one of the prettiest shades of eyeshadow I have ever seen, drugstore or high end. It just shouldn't be this difficult, or expensive!

  2. I wonder if these would work as a liner if you swooped some off of the wand with a brush? I will probably pick up at least 1 to test it out. Thanks for the info!

  5. I really wanted to drool over these. I know the name is "chrome" not "duochrome" but the bottle (...wand? container?) pics had me wondering. They look prettier in the container in my opinion lol

  6. Sigh...I agree with Raychel above. They should just add new shades to the original Color Tattoo line! Remember that limited edition Black Orchid shade they did a while back? It was gorgeous and one of my favorites. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! The Color Tattoo crayons weren't that great and these look kinda meh. I won't be buying these sadly.

    1. Yes! I always regretted not getting Black Orchid when I had the chance. I already owned like 84 color tattoos (ha) and passed on it. Also - Mossy Green. Shame.

    2. They have both colors on Amazon. Just wanted to let you know incase you wanted to buy them.

  7. Bronze Sheen I believe is the most beautiful shade of all 10 and is sold out already! I ordered 4 just to try thanks for the info

  8. On a related note, did you see GMA this morning. The story was " How to save on makeup". Basically, don't buy that much of it. Combine your sunscreen, face cream and foundation into one product( bb cream). Don't buy trial sizes( I think they meant travel sizes). Basically. DONT BUY. I wish they would have done a story on how you can really save $$ on makeup.

    1. Were they suggesting a really pricey BB cream?

  9. Those are beautiful, but liquid eyeshadows have never performed well for me. If they'd put this much pigmentation into those chubby crayons, however...

  10. I wish they would make the matte shadows in the original formula a permanent part of the collection.

  11. Well this is certainly disappointing. They're not as bright or as interesting as I was hoping they'd be.

  12. I bought two today;beige luster and khaki kool, and I love them! Not sure I'll get them all, but the two I got are beautiful. And have great lasting power!

  13. I wonder how these compare to the new Jordana eye paints?
