If you've seen the beauty of a flakie filled polish then you can understand my excitement when I spotted these in the store. This isn't the first time I've seen this kind of thing, Cover Girl attempted it and it turned out an epic disappointment. I first picked up Coffee. Coffee is named for it's scent, not it's shade. It is a milky clear absolutely loaded with iridescent warm gold/yellow flakies. There is the main color line of Glossaholics and then two "mood" glosses. Coffee is obviously scented with coffee but also something like ginger. The scent of it is kind of gross in my opinion but it fades quickly. I don't notice any taste.
Last but not least, the brush. I was surprised when I pulled out this sucker:
Have you tried these? What do you think of the giant applicator?

This is my list of recent purchases/things I've acquired. I don't really wanna call this a haul because it's purchased over a couple of weeks and the point of this post is more for you to see some new product. If there is anything I post you would specifically like to see swatches/reviews on sooner than others please drop me a comment. It helps motivate my butt into gear!
First up are a few gifts from one of my lovely friends...

New Kiss 3D charms. I bought the two packages I found of these, they have a bunch of little nail art things and look awesome! Can't wait to try them.

Which photographed in the tube much brighter than it is, because here it is on the lips:
Which leads me to say this: I am sick and freaking tired of false advertisement! I know that companies make loads of false claims, that doesn't even really bother me. I like to test products for a reason. But when they are using this hot ridiculous neon pink to ADVERTISE AS THE FACE OF YOUR PRODUCT and then said product is NOTHING LIKE THAT then please explain WTF are they thinking? They are advertising that shade why? Because they want people to buy the product, which in my opinion means they expect people to want and purchase this hot freaking pink. So why does it not exist in the line at all? Why is the color instead just another boring old rose? Why do we have to lie and over saturate the colors in our ads when we could just be making the product to being with?
And I am simply SICK of the same old shades being released in every drugstore collection. It's boring! Throw a fun shade in once and a while!
Alright, back to the actual product. Obviously I am completely and totally disappointed in the color. I own so many colors that are exactly like this. As for feel, it goes on pretty easy and not dry at all but after about an hour of wear it does seem a little drying. It starts off pretty shiny but that dulls down pretty quickly. I tested this by eating a snack and drinking through a straw while working a 9 hour shift anddddd...it lasted about 5? Kinda? The inner rim of my lip was worn off pretty badly and the color was a lot less visible at all. This is also disappointing, I get 9 hour wear out of some MAC lipsticks that aren't long wear, are less drying and I can eat a full lunch with it on and not worry.
So, I have to say this is a pass. There is nothing really special about this line, the colors or the wear and for $8.99 there are surely better products.

I picked up the color Tenacious Teal, it just looked so awesome on the model. Here is one swipe and two swipes swatched on my wrist...
And a very quick swatch on the eye...
Maybelline Color Tattoo comes in a little glass jar similar to MAC Paint Pots and almost exactly like Benefit's Creaseless Cream (which are totally not creaseless). On first swipe it feels similar to a Paint Pot, silky and not greasy. Color payoff is pretty good although I did need more than one swipe to get the look I desired. I will say it is not as pretty as the advertising makes it, but how often is it?
The first application I only wore a couple of hours, but the next time I wore it was for a nine hour work shift. I was surprised to find that it held up perfectly all day! Not even a hint of creasing and the color was still vivid.
My one complaint is about creams in general, I find them a little difficult to blend with regular eyeshadow which limits the use. I find them much easier to use as an all over lid color but I did wear it blended with MAC Bright Fuchsia pigment. This photo is after about 5 hours of wear...
Based on this color I will most likely be trying a couple others! They have a gorgeous purple and a rich gold I may have to pick up. They sell for $6.99 and can be found at most drugstores including Walgreens & CVS.

My anticipation of disappointment was correct. Upon swatching I found all the colors to be creamy and pigmented except for the purple! The color I purchased it for :( It went on patchy and chalky. Trying to use it on the lid just did not work. Some of the colors I would almost call too creamy, they easily break in the pan if you aren't careful.
Because I've done so many FOTD's with neutrals I used the white, blue and green for this FOTD.

The wear is actually pretty good, I use my Nailtek Foundation II as a base and usually Poshe as my top coat and even with working everyday I can get a good 5 days with no chipping at all.
There are a few other shades in the new line that I would like to try, although I was disappointed that they brought back majority of the shades in the new bottles with only a few new ones. A lot of those colors are just so common that I would have liked to see them replaced with something with a little more oomph. If we're gonna redesign and reformulate then why not?
I picked my bottle up at Walgreens for $5.99 and a BOGO50% sale. Have you tried the new formula yet?
