Very bold and pigmented
Fierce & Tangy is a bright yellowish orange that is quite pigmented. I find this one a bit harder to spread than some of the others (especially the newer shades), but with a little patience it is worth it. I've used this as a base for other orange shadows, but I really prefer it on its own with a golden brown or dark grey crease. I've also seen some cool FOTDs with orange and mint, so I want to try that sometime soon as well. Like all of the Color Tattoo shadows it wears very well, even on my oily lids I don't get any creasing after 10 hours.
I searched all over for "fierce and tangy" at my local drugstores, and I was stoked once I finally found it. To no avail, when I got home and used it I was not impressed. It seemed really ashy on my skin, not to mention it creased in my eyelids. Save your money ladies :(
I bought Fierce and Tangy along with Painted Purple and Gold Rush. I thought there were a great deal for only 6.95 each and Ive heard such great things about them. I had such high hopes for these but firstly the consistency is patchy for all of them and you have to put a few layers to get a good color payoff. At the time, I thought the colors were nice, but they aren't very wearable for everyday usage. I think that I just bought a few defective ones but I might try them again in the future
I have the color fierce and tangy which is the orange color. I find it to be a nice color however you have to build the color up in order to get a real intense looking orange. I find that I have to warm the product up with my fingers in order for the product to go on smooth. This product or color can go on kind of streaky and blotchy and be kind of hard to blend out. When I use this product I use a primer to make sure the product does not crease. Also I only use it as a base I have never use this product without a primer and I have never use this product as an eye shadow alone. Besides the streaky and blotchiness it is a pretty good product and great for a base once you get it together.
good for base and shadow
i used a little bit on my eyes. They are really nice but a little hard to blend out evenly. But i only used my fingers instead of brushes. i got fierce and tangy, edgy emerald, and the purple one! check my youtube video on it!
maybe its just me
so i went to ulta and got the eye tattoos the orange and purple shades and i will say that they look great on camera but for someone with oily lids they dont work so great or maybeits just me i like to blend 3 or 4 colors and as i wa blending this matte shadow on top of it the tattoo started to flake off i dont know if you can tell but i will post a picture of me wearing it the color is bold but you have to apply alot to get the effect from the commercial to me this would be best used as a colored liner
I got these as a birthday gift from a dear friend and I was so excited to receive these! I meant to put pictures and swatches of this onto my blog, but I was too anxious to use them. Today, I used Fierce & Tangy as a color base for my golden eye shadow look today and it worked extremely well. I didn't have any creasing that I could see and the color held vibrant all day. I would suggest using these colors with a primer and if you're using them as a base, that you apply a thin amount of this to your lids. I would definitely recommend these cream shadows; they are truly some of the best that I have ever tried.
Super quality and price!
These are truly sleek, high end pots of color for an incredibly low price! Points to Maybelline for not being one of those "cheap" makeup brands with crappy products in boring packaging. I have Too Cool (white), Fierce & Tangy (orange), and Pomegranate Punk (deep berry red), and they are amazing. The first one I was drawn to was Fierce & Tangy, simply because I have a new love for orange since that's the color of my new car :) You can use your fingers to apply, but I prefer a concealer (or flat synthetic) brush so I'm not contaminating the pot. You can apply them sheer or build up for a more vibrant color, and they are EXCELLENT as a shadow base. I like that they are relatively matte/slight shimmer finish (at least the colors I have) since I have more shimmer/sparkle eye shadows that are amped up with a matte base. And for a reason I can't really describe, I absolutely love the packaging lol. The display they were in at my local Target made them stand out, but they also include the shade name on the side with the black cap, so no matter what side it lays on, you'll know what color it is. Drugstore brands are becoming some serious high-end product contenders!
