Review/FOTD: Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadow & Revlon Lip Butter

I picked up a few of the latest drugstore buzz products over the weekend, Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow's and Revlon Lip Butter's. I love being able to swipe on a cream shadow for quick makeup, and being winter I was looking for something moisturizing to wear on the lips.
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe ($7) is a flat "greige" cream. These are nearly identical (maybe even better) than MAC's paint pots & Benefits CC's. They have some really stunning color's in the range including a daring teal and citrus orange. I really hope they expand and introduce a flesh tone or matte vanilla shade. The application is buttery smooth (sans the purple one) and they blend nicely. I had zero creasing throughout the day, and while I didn't give it the 24 hour test drive it held up for 8 hours which is all I usually wear makeup for. This particular shade works fantastic as lower eyeliner. It defines the eye with out being as harsh as black.. I think they may be the best cream eyeshadow's I've used. Totally beats out the high end brands and they're only $7!

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter (also around $5-$7) are like a lip balm, lipstick, and gloss all in one. They feel sumptuous on and have a nice amount of pigment for a balm. I chose Candy Apple, Sweet Tart, & Lollipop. Candy Apple is a lovely bright warm red, Sweet Tart a watermelon pink, and Lollipop a fuchsia with violet micro shimmer. I'd recommend these to any one who might be new to or weary of bright lipstick's. They're colorful, but have a wearable translucency to them.

The coolest friends ever, aka mine, gave me some seriously incredible (like I could see her ripped muscles) tickets to Madonna's upcoming MDNA tour for my Birthday! My excitement boiled over in to Madge's signature makeup becoming my fotd. It was so dreary out that I had to set my camera to vivid, so don't freak on the lip color it's really not THAT bright I promise :)
