Cream eyeshadows are something I’ve never tried before. Being happy with normal powder eyeshadow I didn’t feel a need for it in my life. I saw these on offer in my local boots recently and I swatched them on my hand and fell in love. The smooth gel like texture is amazing and so pigmented for a cream/gel solution. I picked up On and On Bronze and Metallic Pomegranate, knowing that the bronze one would be a perfect base for so many different looks and the pomegranate was a colour which would take me right through Autumn and great for green eyes like mine.
The packaging is beautiful and reminds me a great deal of Chanel? However, at a much more affordable price than any gel shadows I’ve seen before at just £4.99 each. I love the little screw pots and they’re great to use with a brush or just your finger. What really did impress me was how long they stayed on. Obviously with a cream based eyeshadow it’s always a good idea to prime your eyelid but I had thoughts of it being printed all over my eyebrow or smudged down beneath my eyes. Obviously this didn’t happen and they didn’t budge for a good 6+ hours. I can’t say I’ve tested the ’24hour’ claim but who would wear eyeshadow for that long anyway? I’m so impressed with these shadows and can’t wait to do a look for you all to see.
You can get these shadows from here. Have you tried these before, what are your thoughts? Can you recommend any other cream shadows?
