One of the many consequences of beauty blogging is hunting down collections that were never released in your country.
Case in point, the Maybelline Color Tattoo Limited Edition range for the Summer of 2013. Now, I'm not 100% sure just how limited edition these were, but I believe that only the U.S. got the full 8 shade range, while Canada a selected few (as for this side of the pond, I don't think these ever hit any European Maybelline stands).
So, after a visit on ebay (and yes, most sellers were charging extortionate prices for these), I ended up with these three:
10 Precious Pearl, 40 Seashore Frosts and 45 Lavish Lavender.
Now, I know that this range has received mostly negative reviews from bloggers and YT-ers, and, I think those were justified to a certain degree. By no means should you expect the pigmentation or the metallic reflection of the permanent shades, but if you're ok with a sheer wash of color, then you should be able to use these just fine. As for the longevity issue,
