Pinks, for eyeshadows, are very lacking in my collection. Either they are akin to a center of the sun hot pink that I don't use all too much, or they only look pink in the pan and translate either champagne or rose gold on the eye. It's quite a struggle.
So...Inked In Pink wasn't exactly as pink as I had anticipated it. I don't know what it is, but I have a feeling that since my skin has such strong pink undertones to begin with, that I'm wondering if that is why it is a struggle for me to find pinks that actually look pink against my skin. Who knows.
Given, I wanted something pinker, this definitely did give a nice, rosey champagne finish against my lid. I wore Inked In Pink as a base with Too Faced Kiss the Bride on the lid and Urban Decay Buck in the crease for a springtime look that wasn't completely neutral. The look lasted all day without creasing and did not fade or dull out. I really enjoy using the Color Tattoo range as bases; each one I've tried has given me phenomenal wear time and added a lot of vibrancy to my looks. They are also easy to blend but do not have a ridiculous dry time; there's a healthy medium.
- Blends and applies easily.
- Phenomenal base.
- Reads much more neutral on the eye than in the pan.
If you're looking for a good subtly colored base, this shade is definitely worth checking out. I'm quite impressed with this range as a whole, so I'm very excited that they keep expanding the shades.
