I am actually pretty pleased with this product, I have it in skin lights. I bought it because I have always been allured with the idea of a cream eyeshadow. This was the first ones I bought and they are decent. I really don't like the packing because it is hard to open and I often fling my thumb in the pink color on accident. The color pigmentation is decent, I am glad that they are not super pigmented because I bought them to be a base to my powder shadow. They work really well for that pourpose. The colors are okay, starting from left to right if its open with mirror on the top is, brown, looks scary in the pot but isnt terrible when applied and has a shimmer finish, cream is a sheer very shimmery color, pinkish is nice it has a very strong gold undertone so i like that, and then skin which is just a matte color that is kinda darker then my skin because i am so fair but like it is pretty nice. So overall, i would buy this product again.
Ugh. I bought this product since there was so much hype about it on YouTube earlier this year and now it just sits in my makeup drawer and I don't know what to do with it. I bought it in Seashells 11 since it's all neutrals and I figured I could wear it everyday. These creme shadows are dry and difficult to blend and just a nightmare to work with. Don't waste your money.
I have this is vava voom and black magic...so I tried it twice. And I hate them both....and REALLY wanted to like black magic. *Sigh*
They look good on at first but they fade so quickly, within an hour give or take. It's almost as if they melt away or something! This is a terrible product, it's too bad
I got a palette of these cream shadows in not just nudes. I would recommend saving the money you would spend on these and getting MAC paint pots. MAC paint pot dry down and then do not budge, these do not and therefore they crease after a couple of hours. However, when I use this under UDPP I do not experience creasing. Nevertheless I would rather spend a little more for a better formula of cream shadow. But if you are on a budget, have an eyeshadow primer, and do not have oily eyelids these may work for you.
The one positive to these shadows is that there is a wide variety of colors of available.
I bought these when they were 75% off so got these quads for under $2 each. I ONLY bought them to use as bases for my e/s to stick to but I have to say that even at this price, it was a waste of my money. I have seen them work well on people's arms when they are doing swatches but on my lids, I didn't see much of a difference. Or even a good job adhering the e/s.
I would recommend the NYX jumbo eye pencils as bases over these. Those are $3 ea, so similar to the price I paid. I am NC35 and used Khaki Suede and Skinlights. continued >>
Bought this in Black Magic the other day, and I love it. The colors are so beautiful, Out of all of colors the silver seems to work the best for some reason. I actually wore these today, and I haven't noticed any creasing, and it's been about 8 hours, maybe more. So these work great. I'll have to get more if I can find them. It's seems like every store I go to, to for these either don't sell them, or are out. Hopefully I can get more soon! These are awesome, totally worth trying. =}
PROS: Gorgeous color choices. Will last okay if you use a primer first (like Too-Faced's). A lot of people like to use it as a base for powder, and then it lasts great for them without primer. Pretty inexpensive.
CONS: Need a primer to make it last or have to use it as a base. .
Bought on sale - tried it - hated it - threw it in the bottom of a drawer. In the past few months I have been using them as a base for other shadows and getting some nice effects. Like it as a base -not on its own.
Why all the hate? I am in love with these creme shadows! Yes, primer is essential but it is for any cream shadow that I use. These last well alone or with a powder shadow on top. You only need a light touch with this and effect is supposed to be subtle, if you want deep pigmentation this is not for you.
In my desperate attempt to become a drugstore girl and give up my Bobbi Brown habit I bought these on a whim last week. What was I thinking? Bobbi Brown cream shadows these are not. Truly, these things are just awful. Revlon should be ashamed to be putting out such an inferior product. There is hardly any pigment and the creasing is just ridiculous. These are going back to the store ASAP.
