There are some makeup products that I just can’t get enough of, and cream eye shadows are at the top of the list. My collection started with one MAC paint pot and sort of exploded from there. While the majority of cream shadows are only from high-end brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Chanel, etc, in the last year the drugstore brands have made a good showing, especially Maybelline with their Color Tattoo line.
I primarily use the cream shadows as a primer. 90% of the time I use MAC’s Soft Ochre as a primer and then put my eye shadows right on top of it. I’ve been very lucky and have never experienced creasing or fading. If I’m using a shimmer shadow on my lid, then I like to use a shimmery cream shadow underneath as a base. I have no idea if that actually helps, but it’s fun to use!
I do stay with the neutral colors-everything I own ranges from champagne to some sort of shimmery brown, with the focus on warm, lighter tones. I should probably branch out, but I’m not a fan of color on my eye lids. Grey or navy blue on me and I feel like I’m walking on the wild side!
Please let me know if there’s a cream shadow that you think I just have to have. You know I won’t be able to resist and will probably go out and get it!
