Maybelline Color Tattoos - Jewel Toned Oh My!

Is it me or does Maybelline keep on outdoing themselves lately?  It seems like they have been coming out with some fabulous colors and products.  I told myself I didn't need any more of these, however I stumbled upon some Rite Aid reward dollars and Maybelline had a Buy One Get One half off sale.  I couldn't resist plus I had heard so much about these jewel toned colors that I couldn't help myself.

The colors that I picked up were Edgy Emerald and Painted Purple.  Both of these colors were very creamy and the emerald color  surprisingly had more of a metallic "pop" to it than it looks in the pot.  The color payoff on these speaks for itself.  I applied the color tattoo to my eyelids with my fingers, however, later I realized that I probably would have gotten a more even and dense application had I used a synthetic brush.  I did not apply any shadow over the purple color I used in the picture below.

They came out with a limited edition fall line recently, however, I did see those at Walgreens and I held off from purchasing any.  Check out these lovelies, the colors are gorgeous and intense.  Have you tried any of these and if so which colors are your favorites?

NOTD - Red Carpet Gel Manicure - Simply Adorable

Ok, I know it's been a while since I've posted, however, going forward I plan on posting on a regular basis.  I promise :)  I pretty much took the summer off to focus on family and now I am recharged and ready to go.  As you can tell, I have revamped my blog.  Please be patient as I am still work on tweaking the formatting but it's finally somewhat presentable.

Lately, I've been really into using my gel manicure kit.  My life has been so hectic that it's been nice to not have to paint my nails every 2-3 days.  Using gel allows me to keep my polish on for 1-2 weeks.  Here's my review and tutorial on the Red Carpet Gel Manicure kit:
