Oh how I wish I’d known about Tattoo Junkee Cosmetics earlier this summer but it’s not stopping me from enjoying the brand now that I know about it. I have nothing but raves for the products that I’ve been trying recently. This is not a brand that I would have stopped for in a store. It looks too young for me but now that I know what it’s all about I’d stop dead in my tracks to pick some up.
It’s not just the price that’s amazing about Tattoo Junkee but it’s the texture that had me at first swipe. I don’t think I’ve felt powder cosmetics as soft as these. They’ve just blown me away.
I’ve been using Tattoo Junkee Space Dust Eyeshadows ($5.99) in the 4 available colors. First surprise is that they aren’t a loose pigment eyeshadow which is what I thought from the name.
Second surprise is that as bright as they look they are totally wearable. The colors aren’t for the shy but they aren’t going to scare people away either. They are very wearable though you can go as bold as you like with them.
The cute compact fits in the palm of my hand with domed pressed powder that is spongy to the touch. The Space Dust shadows go on so smoothly and don’t kick back powder. When you try them you’ll question that price! They seem like they’d be so much more expensive.
MOONWALK is a bright metallic gold that can also be a lemonade shade which is so popular this summer.
MAGIC DANCE is the purple you’ve been craving ever since everything became nude. Tattoo Junkee says it’s a prismatic purple. I say it’s a fabulous blue based purple that is my new favorite. My hygenist saw me in this and thought it had a burgundy tone when paired with Cosmic Queen.
COSMIC QUEEN is another hot hot color of late. It’s a hot pink metallic that will take your eyes to the next level.
LIFE ON MARS is another metallic, this time in a teal leaning midnight blue.
Even if these appear too bright for you, they are worth a try since they will surprise you with their beautiful pigment and versatility.
Tattoo Junkee also offers a 2 piece eyeshadow set with one rounded and one angled brush ($7.99). These are very soft; actually a little too soft for picking up a lot of shadow but work well if you like a light look.
TATTOO JUNKEE has two highlight collections with the same soft lovely texture. I have the Summer Sun Collection Glo-Lite ($12.99) which looks more glitzy in the palette than it does on my face.
Keep your skin in a summer daydream with these warm, bronzy highlighting powders that give off a sweet, sun-kissed glow. The three shades vary from a light peachy bronze to an ethereal metallic cream to a warm light bronze. The metallic shades are just beautiful and live up to their name. They glow but with a subtleness that you’ll appreciate. Their names even glow: Naked, Blaze, and Tease.
The Glo-Lite Brush ($8.99) is a wonderful accompaniment for application. The brush is angled and picks up the pigment evenly. I use it lightly on my skin and the effect is beautiful.
This highlighter palette is my new favorite and one I use a lot more than my more expensive highlighters.
Finish up your summer and start your fall with these fun, pigmented cosmetics. You won’t be sorry. — Marcia
I haven’t seen TATTOO JUNKEE at Target, Walmart or Walgreens but they are available at some stores. TATTOO JUNKEE is cruelty free with some of their products being vegan.
