Cream Eyeshadows- Review and Test
I love cream eyeshadows because my eyelids tend to get dry so they need a nice base to prevent crusty eyeshadow. I also like to use cream shadows when I am in a rush because I can simply use my fingers to swipe the color over my lid. I am a big fan of the MAC paint pot eyeshadows but they are pricey. The MAC paint pots retails at $17.50 or around $14 at the Cosmetic Company stores. I recently purchased the Maybelline 24 hour tatoo cream eyeshadows and so far, they are really amazing! I got them on sale for $6.89 each plus 50% off the second one so they came out to about $5 each. I also love the Stila smudge pots and Loreal HIP cream shadows. I decided to take all my creamy based eyeshadows and eyeliners and do two test. The first test is to swipe them with my finger after 30 minutes to see if they smear. The second test is to shower and see what happens when they get wet. The second test is especially important since I plan to wear cream eyeshadows when I go to Hawaii this summer. I want to make sure the color stays on if I go swimming. Below are pictures depicting my results. Let me know if you have had other results with other cream eyeshadows/eyeliners.
