Spotted: Maybelline Limited Edition Gilded in Gold Collection (with swatches of the new Color Tattoos)

New Color Tattoos! New Color Tattoos! And guess what? They're mattes!  I feel like Maybelline is really listening to their fans and giving us what we want with this collection (if I had a dime for every time one of you has told me you wanted more matte Color Tattoos, I could probably afford to buy this entire collection, without sales or coupons).

Huge thanks to three lovely readers for the following pics. Cheryl R., Yamile, and Jess all spotted this collection at...any guesses? Yep, Bed Bath & Beyond.  First up, some photos from Cheryl R:

Maybelline Limited Edition Gilded in Gold Collection
(retail: $5.99 - $2.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond)

This collection contains:
  • Three limited edition Color Tattoos
  • Three limited edition blushes
  • Two limited edition Colorsensational lipsticks
  • Two limited edition Color Show nail colors
  • One permanent collection Master Drama eyeliner

I don't have the shade names for the limited edition blushes except for the one on the far left, which is Plum Shimmer (I'm guessing the other two are Pink Shimmer and Bronze Shimmer).

Limited Edition Color Tattoos 
 260 Matte Brown, 250 Nude Pink, 255 Just Beige

I don't have the shade names for the limited edition Color Show polishes (I can't quite make them out in the photo).

Limited Edition Colorsensational Lipsticks 
1010 Pink Grandeur, 1015 Refined Red

Reader Yamile also shared some pics of the display:

These glitter polishes look beautiful, don't they? I'm loving that silver with the chunky black and silver (os that white??) glitter. And the red on the right almost reminds of a chunkier version of the much-loved Maybelline Autumn Leaves from Fall 2011.

And now for some swatches of some of the items in this collection, from all three readers! 

First up, swatches of one of the blushes from reader Jess:

Jess said that there was a LOT of sparkle in this blush, which I think is quite apparent in her photos!

Next, a swatch of the limited edition Color Tattoo in Matte Brown, from reader Cheryl R:

You have no idea how much I've been hoping for a medium matte brown Color Tattoo. So I'm basically saying THIS right now.

And last but not least, Color Tattoo swatches from reader Yamile:

 Yamile writes:
The three color tattoos are matte...the swatch across all three by the side is MAC Painterly [Paint Pot]. Nude Pink is more mauve pink, not an exact dupe [for MAC Painterly] but close enough for people that don't want to spend 18.00 for MAC Painterly. I'm guessing Just Beige is close to MAC Soft Ochre [Paint Pot] but since I don't own that one I can't tell for sure.
A yellow-toned cream color like Just Beige can double as a color-correcting lid primer like Benefit Lemon Aid (to take away redness). So this could be a great multi-tasker (but duh...all Color Tattoos are multi-taskers since you can use them as primer, shadow and liner).

Hopefully this post has given you enough information to help you decide what you might want to buy when you find this collection in person. I know I've got my shopping list ready to go...now just to find the money to pay for it all. Ha!

Thanks so very, VERY much to Cheryl R., Yamile and Jess for the fantastic photos and information about this collection. I truly appreciate it!

  1. oooooooo!! I'm so excited! I've been waiting forever for maybelline to come out with matte neutral colors like these, and of course I just bought mac soft ochre paint pot, oh well. I'm still snatching these up as soon as i can find them!

  2. New Color Tattoos?!? And CREAMY MATE?!?!?
    *Kermit flail of joy!* It's on the hunt I go!

  3. Working for Ulta has its perks! I'm usually the one who sets up these displays... we do tend to get them 2-3 weeks after other stores though. If anyone has aa swatch of the lippies please share!!!!

  4. Drooling over here. I'm drooling. (And going to hit the local 'we-have-everything-first-because-we-know-people' Rite-Aid tomorrow! [Seriously. I don't know why, but this one particular Rite-Aid has all the new goodies a month or more ahead of any other store in my area.])

  5. I'm excited about the Color Tattoos! Hope they show up near me.

  6. Color Tattoos dominate my makeup basket. I wear them EVERY DAY and must have these. And you're so right that they are the ultimate eye multitasker. Best eye makeup ever!

  7. New Color Tattoo!!! Excited! Thanks G!

    ReplyDelete
  8. OMG. Maybelline why are you taking all my money? Lol. I really want those lippies, the Autumn Spice polish & all the Color tattoos...

    ReplyDelete
  9. oh dear,
    The blushes are gorgeous too but I'm not a big fan of shimmer. Now if those were matte *evil chuckle* At any rate, I have to break another piggy bank just for the two lighter tattoo shadows!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Omg finally I can get a matte brown cream eyeshadow and not have to splurge on Bobbi Brown's Suede or the like im so happy.

    ReplyDelete
  11. haha It will be mine... oh yes, for sure!
    I was so bummed when fashion week didn't have new color tattoos so here we go!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hmmm..... I'm beginning to think it's G, not Revlon, who has the evil plans to empty out all our pockets! How else do you explain all the awesome collections she's posted about in the last few days?! Seriously, I'm really glad Maybelline is providing consumers with some of the kinds of items they've been desperately wanting for so long. :)

    Something else I had to note is: how freakin' awesome is it to see a gorgeous Asian model as the "face" of a display of drugstore makeup?! Having grown up in a diverse part of CA, I know there are just as many beautiful Asian Americans as there are lovely Hispanic, Caucasian or African Americans who love makeup, but we rarely see them in our drugstore ads. Yay for diversity!

  13. I don't think I've ever been this excited about a maybelline release before. Definitely going to have to hunt these down. Thanks G!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Just wanted to add some info of what little I can remember about the polishes when I saw them in the store!
    The silver one was really interesting and had this slight gold/somewhat green shift to the silver base, along with some bigger silver glitter. And the red one, Crushed Crimson (I caved and bought it!) is a deep red base with fine red and gold shimmer, plus small round gold glitter and hex red glitter. Sooo pretty! Also, if anyone is interested, they're labelled "Brocades" polishes.

    1. Sounds cool! Another new nail polish finish. I wonder what they look like when they dry...def. going to be on the lookout for these.

  15. Oooo excited about the new colour tattoo's. I don't suppose you know when they will be available in the uk?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hey G, you are on fire with all this new products coming out. Will you be doing an Interactive Map for the matte color tattos? Please,please say yes.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm looking forward to the blushes and polish. I'm wondering if the shimmer on top of the blush is just an overspray? Maybe it doesn't run through the whole pan.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm not in the market for blushes, but I think I'll change that when I see these. Oh, matte tattoos....come to mama!!!! Probably a polish or two. LOL I have never looked forward to purchasing Maybelline products like I have lately. They are rockin' it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. WOW, I want the matte Color Tattoos. Am so tired of not being able to find good matte eyeshadow. A ton of glitter/shimmer does NOT look good on these old eyelids.

    But isn't "Gilded in Gold" redundant? The name, I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  20. a cool toned pinky beige Color Tattoo? something that won't turn orange on me? I'm excited! I love that red polish too, yummy

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think I need Just Beige as a color-correcting shadow primer. It looks like the silver polish may be Silver Swank, based on the shelf tag.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Are the color tattoos limited edition?

    ReplyDelete
  23. The lipsticks look just what I'm hoping for. I am a HUGE sucker for the 'Color Sensational' lipsticks and the Vivids were my favorite collection so far. So I'm looking for a new red to add to my collection. Seems great.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I just picked up the red nail polish for now.Its beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  25. OMG I need the two nudy color tattoos! Why aren't they permanent D;

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would love to try the blush. I love a shimmer/ sparkle in my blush. Cant wait to see them in person to see if the pink will work for me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh my gosh! I was just at Bed Bath today and I didnt see these! Im going to have to go back! The blushes and the color tattoos look amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  28. loved the wayne's world video! that was hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  29. G, please put up an interactive sightings map for these! I sent someone to get them for me at a bed, bath and beyond in NJ and he wasnt able to find them :(

    ReplyDelete
  30. My bed bath and beyond has the collection but some lady decided to buy all 6 color tattoos, a replica of each color, and not leave any for any one else. I asked the lady that worked there and there are no other locations in Dallas that carry these and once they're gone they're gone. So thank you lady who bought all the color tattoos on park ln!

    2. There are only 2 of each color in the display, not nice of her to do that.

      Managed to get 1 CT, but the other displays were gone at the Harmon I went to.
      Not out yet @ CVS/Walgreens so maybe I will try there later.

  31. I wanted to share that I contacted Maybelline New York Canada via facebook, and they informed me that Canada will ONLY get "the Color Show polishes from that collection: Color Show Brocades, Color Show Nail Falsies", and none of the other products.
    :( Was really, really hoping to at least get the chance to get the 2 nude matte color tattoos!

  32. She is probably one of those jerks that sells LE items on Amazon and Ebay for 10x more than they are worth.

    1. if she does then we're better off buying the real MAC paint pots...

  33. Yeah, my Bed Bath & Beyond had the collection up today but another shopper & I both literally watched in shock as some lady in front of us grabbed EVERYTHING off the display. :( I managed to get one Refined Red lippie that she dropped by accident on her way to the register & I love the color :) but I really wanted the color tattoos & red color show polish too. The other summer color tattoos never came to my Ulta or drugstores/etc so I'm worried that same thing will happen again... :/

    ReplyDelete
  34. I found the display as well & those color tattoos are amazing! I also got the bronze blush which is called "Bronze Tapestry" (swatches on my blog) & the pink one is called "Pink Weave"

    ReplyDelete
  35. where oh where are people finding the matte tattoo's? My BB&B has no cosmetics :(
    The nude mattes are what I really really want!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I sure hope Maybelline Color Tattoo Matte shades are permanent. They will be such a hit that Maybelline can't make it fast enough. Lol I've been waiting forever for any drugstore brand to make a matte nude-y base. (esp. Maybelline C.T)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Is anyone finding these in any other stores yet? I am not near b b& b.....I am in hot pursuit of these!! I wanted to ask for an interactive map, also, but with only 2-3 in each display I am afraid they would be gone by the time they got posted....

    ReplyDelete
  38. I saw this display in BB&B today. Talked to an employee and she said the Color Tattoos were gone within hours of first putting the display up. (And they haven't restocked) I left with an Elixir and 3 Revlon Matte/Lacquer balms. Still a good trip. Hope the LE Color Tattoos end up at other drugstores before their "limited" run runs out.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Saw the collection at the BBB in Baton Rouge. The blushes are pink weave, plum shimmer and bronze rapestry. They look extremely shimmery but pretty in the packaging. One of the polishes in the display, Brocades looks gorg in the bottle.

  40. Saw the the collection at the BBB in Baton Baton Rouge. Picked up the Just Beige.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The BBB needs to have a Harmon Face Values inside in order to have the makeup displays. For example, the downtown Seattle store has one, and the West Seattle one does not. You can look on the company's site to see which BBB has a Harmon Face Values.

  42. I LIKE THE COLOR TATTOO'S, THE BLUSH LOOK NICE, BUT TO MUCH SPARKLE UNLESS ITS JUST AN OVER SPRAY. THE LIPSTICKS ARE MEH! AND I REALLY LIKE THE NAIL POLISHES FOR THE HOLIDAYS:) AGAIN WHO KNOWS IF CANADA WILL GET THIS :/

    1. I bought the blushes today. Just to let you know the glitter on the blush is an over spray.

  43. i love that you also post the displays so we can know what to look out for!

    ReplyDelete
  44. The only one that spoke to me was nude pink, love it! Reminds me of Nubile paint pot by mac, that came out holiday 2011.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I haven't seen these yet! Going to check tonight!! Thanks!! I was just about to buy the painterly from MAC! I'll try this and save some $$!

    ReplyDelete
  46. so happy i found the beige color tattoo in cvs at ozone park, jamaica, ny today! it was 7.29 and the display was full

    ReplyDelete
  47. Gosh I have YET to find this display with the CT'S. I am exhausted from my manic hunt to find these. Ugggh so frustrated. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  48. I just found these at the CVS on Calaveras Blvd in Milpitas! I'm really happy because Maybelline is 30% off, so I got one.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Geesh after much grueling foot work to MANY stores as well as calls and fb post to Maybelline I had given up hope. Today on a trip to return something to CVS I decided to look around to see what new perfume gift sets they had for their sale. Much to my surprise these it was the almighty Gilded in Gold collection. The display was full minus one of each ct so I gladly snatched those first although no one else was in the aisle. I also bought one of each blush, lipstick and nail polish since those 2 colors were not included in the brocade collection of just polish. It's a shame but I'm tickled pink. Ladies I found the display in the back of the store on the "look up" shelves.
    CVS MONROEVILLE, PA
    Everything there minus ct

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just found them yesterday at a CVS and bought Just Beige and Nude Pink. The Just Beige works as a eye brightener for me, and the Nude Pink is a perfect shade for a base color (to make my shadows pop).
    So glad I found these!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Found these at cvs! The matte brown is a dupe for macs quite natural paint pot !

    ReplyDelete
  52. Do you know whether any of those places that sell Gilded In Gold cream eyeshadows ship to Europe?
