Cream Eyeshadows

I've lost count of the amount of times I've mentioned on these pages that I'm an 'oily eyelid gal.' Product just does not like to stay on my eyelids; it creases, it smudges and ultimately ends up in a melted mush. Attractive, I know. However, the years of this holding this wonderful trait have led to a lot of testing. Throughout my journey I have discovered that a friend of my mine comes in the form of the cream eyeshadow. 

My favourite is the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise I have the shade Norma Jean. It is so creamy that it almost feel wet. But I find that it is this texture that helps to make it stay for a super long time whilst also being super pigmented. Whilst I absolutely adore this product, it doesn't sit in my everyday makeup bag because of its pigmentation. 

That is where the Chanel Illusion D'ombre come in. A weird formula, they sit in the tub like a powder but apply as a cream but this makes them so easy to use: no blending just apply. In terms of wearability they do. not. budge. My old and trusted favourite is the shade Emmerville: a lovely, everyday peachy gold which is definitely a cream version of MAC All that Glitters. I have recently purchased the shade Mirage - a light brown colour that I'm hoping will be my smokey eyes in one product. They come with a little brush which is perfect for packing the product on. 

I bought the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear cream eyeshadow in Beach Bronze after watching a Pixi Woo tutorial. It is a gorgeous, sparkly rich brown shade. I find this the trickiest of the lot to use - because it is in quite a small brush I need a small brush and then find it tricky to blend out. I think I need more practice with using this shade as I find that it looks quite heavy on me. 

Unfortunately my Estee Lauder Pure Colour Stay on Shadow Paint in Chained has dried out a bit now. However, it was definitely a firm favourite a few years back for my 'nights out' makeup. Mainly because it just didn't budge. I will definite re-visit this range.

The next on my list to try is Mac Cream Pot in Rubenesque. What are your favourites?
