Review: Cream Eyeshadows

Hello beauties,

Today is all about cream eyeshadows! With so many on the market it can be quite overwhelming to know what one is best for your needs. Some are long lasting, some have great colour selections while others are really affordable or expensive. Lucky for you I have a large collection, so I’ll try to keep it brief.

Sephora Colorful Shadow and Liner

Really long last cream eyeshadows in pencil form, making it easy to apply straight from the pencil. Great selection range and quite affordable at $USD14. Because they are really long lasting you need to work fast with them if you want to blend the edges. Great buy, I highly recommend.

These cream eyeshadows are a dream, if only I could insert a love heart face emoji. These cream eyeshadows come in a twisty pencil form making it easy to apply, however you can’t sharpen, therefore losing its tip form… These are extremely creamy and easy to blend, however set beautiful soon after. I find I need to apply at least 2 layers to get a decent colour payoff, but it could just be this shade and I like my lid colour bold. A lot of people say these are long lasting however I need to prime first. These beauties retail at $56 which is why I only own one, but so worth it.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

These are considered to be a dupe or close to a dupe of the MAC Paint Pots. Personally I find the formula quite dry making it hard to apply and blend out. The best way I find to apply these are with a finger then to blend out with a synthetic brush. The Color Tattoos retail at $11.95 and are worth it if you want to try a daring colour without the hefty price tag.

MAC Paint Pot

The formula of the MAC paint pots can vary depending on the colour. I’ve found some to be quite creamy while others are drier and hard to blend (typically these ones have glitter). With the paint pots you can apply by using your ring finger or a synthetic brush. Because these are more creamy you have some time to blend the product. Personally I find I still need to prime my lids before if I want to prolong my eye makeup. My personal favourite colour is Constructivist, make sure to try it out. Paint pots retail for $35, however last a really long time if you make sure to keep the lid closed tightly.

The great thing about cream eyeshadows are they are so easy and quick to apply if you just want a wash of colour on the lids or great to use as a base for other eyeshadows. Most cream eyeshadows are long lasting so they’re great if you need your eyemakeup to last all day long.
