THE LOWDOWN: CREAM EYESHADOW



No matter what season we're always after keeping our makeup in place and lasting all day. Theres nothing worse than a creasing eyeshadow or a smudged eyeshadow so heres a low down of various cream/gel eyeshadows that are the easiest and quickest way to add glamour or shadow to the eye and be ready for a day of makeup.

Bourjois Paris Color Edition 24hours - Petale De Glace  and Prune Nocturne: These cream shadows have a cream to powder formula and the two colours I have compliment each other easily, the lighter colour is a beautiful everyday or quick colour all over the lid and the darker is a create way to go from office to evening or to add to the crease. I really like these as they stay ALL day. At £6.99 these are a great steal and must have in any makeup collection. [LINK]

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Fantasme - At the higher end of the price scale of £25 you're really getting your quality in this product. This is a beautiful product that can be multi-use for highlighting, inner corner of the eye or all over. Although I only have it in this highlight colour its a beautiful colour to use and I feel so glamorous using the Chanel product. This stays put all day as a highlighter so creates a awake and contoured look all day, a real winner but more pricey than most. [LINK]

Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo On and On Bronze. This is one of my favourite products and a big repurchase as this is only £4.99 for a product that truly does last 24 hours, you can see how beautiful the swatch of this product is. This seriously unique colour is a great everyday or can be glammed up colour and has a beautiful metallic shine to it with no glitter. The only downside to these pots is they dry out so damn quick but with a good swirl with the brush can easily be used but unlike Bourjois' finish these are very dry formula to begin. [LINK]

MEMEME Dew Pots in Willow Whisper and Moonlit Madness - These shadows are great for colour ranges, and have beautiful deep colours for smokey eyes. These however don't have the lasting power and I prefer to use a primer underneath to ensure they don't budge. The formula is a lot lighter so even though I look like I use these all the time, I don't it just requires a lot to get some of the lighter colours on the eye. However these are great editions of colour and from Superdrug a real winner at £7.25. [LINK]
