Favorite Cream Shadows


Cream Shadows are dreamy. They last a long time, on the eye and in the pot, just be sure to close them tight! To me they are worth their weight in gold. You get your money’s worth. Cream shadows come in many different price ranges. Maybelline Color Tatoo is a great affordable brand that works great, and comes in beautiful colors.

As promised I’ve swatched some of my favorite colors and brands.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Waterproof cream color in 11. Basically a metallic light bright gold color. It IS waterproof!

Diorshow Fusion Mono Long Wear Eyeshadow in Millenium 381. This is a gorgeous silver color, very sheer. You can wear alone or accent other shadows.

Givenchy Ombré Couture 16 hr. Hold waterproof cream shadow in Kaki Brocart 6. I am so impressed with these. They are affordable, wearable colors, not metallic. Basically matte with a bit of shimmer. I will do a post on these alone!

MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadow in Cork.
This is such a fun texture. As you can see where my finger has been, these are very cushy, and soft. This one has a lot of glitter, so I don’t wear it for day. It’s a gorgeous copper color!

MAC Chilled Fluidline . Thanks to my friend Maria Pia of http://www.ifmakeupcouldtalk, I bought this. It is a great color for the inner corner of your eye and as an accent color with other shadows. Maria has a post on her website that shows this great color in action.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Sparkle Shadow/Liner in Sunlit Bronze 4. This is a very sheer bronze with sparkles. Because it’s so sheer the sparkles are not too much. This is a beautiful warm bronze color!

Chanel Illusion D Ombré in Embouil 86. This is a gorgeous plum, great for blue eyed beauties! You can’t go wrong with Chanel.

Diorshow Fusion Mono Long Wear Eyeshadow in Meteore 661. This is just a gorgeous gold color, I use it as an accent color. Love that it has shimmer but it doesn’t get all over your face! These are so creamy and last forever.

Smashbox Limitless 15 hr. Wear Cream Shadow in ICON. This is the most versatile shadow. I use it as a liner, or just apply it straight to my lid with my finger. It’s a beautiful warm brown that literally lasts until you take it off!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Waterproof in 15. It is a shimmery taupe color. You can definitely wear this alone because it is so pigmented. MUFE cream shadows are quickly becoming my favorite! They are affordable and come in gorgeous colors.

I hope you enjoyed the swatches. Cream shadows are a great investment, fun to work with and last all day!!

Have a great Monday!

  1. So, if I’m understanding correctly, I could use the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream and not blend it with another eye shadow? If that’s right, would that be a good every day eye shadow? I’m totally eye shadow challenged, Kerrie. 😦


      1. Yes, we do! There’s actually a stand-alone JC Penney in Owasso with a Sephora inside. It’s super close and I can avoid the mall! 😉


      2. Perfect!! Apply a small amount with your finger, or you can use a special brush. To me the finger is easier. Build the color to what your happy with. It sheer’s out nicely. If that color is too dark for you, I’m sure there’s one that’s lighter! I think this one is great, not too dark, not too light. But I would swatch it in the store.
