My favorite product from Maybelline ever! I love these. I own about 14 of them and I still want more. These are just perfect as eyeshadow bases. They're also great for wearing alone if you want a quick, easy look. They don't crease on me. If you experience creasing with these perhaps apply a thinner layer when you reach the crease or use primer underneath. I've only ever had one crease on me and it's the shade i liked least called, "barely branded." Although i must admit that shade has multiple uses for me so I still like it. Also if you experience the product drying out in the pot, don't throw it out just yet. You have to rub away the upper layer of the pot because most of the product is still creamy underneath. As time goes on, the upper layer is what starts drying out first. The product underneath should still be fine. Sometimes it takes a bit of warming up with your finger to get it creamy if the top layer is too dry. So yeah I absolutely love these products, and I always pounce on these when Maybelline releases new colors in limited edition collections. I wish they would come out with a matte white shade sometime too. Earlier this year I also found a bunch of these in 99cent only stores. These are worth every penny for me though. I'll buy them at any price. They're staples in my collection.

I have "Tough as Taupe" a mid-deep matte grey taupe, and "Too Cool" a shimmery white highlight. The former can be applied lightly for a light wash of taupe, or easily be built up for a deeper, more smokey eyed gray taupe. I love that there is absolutely no shimmer in this shade, since matte eyeshadows that perform well are so hard to find. "Too Cool" is a basic highlight, it's very pretty,and can be used as a cheekbone hightlight too, since it's a cream formula. These apply smoothly and easily, do not crease, and wear a long time. Since so little is needed with every application, one pot lasts forever, so they are well worth their price.

So many people love these, so I just had to pick some up. I've got Creamy Beige, Barely Branded, and Tough as Taupe. When I watch tutorials on YT, most of the time the gurus will use their finger to apply this stuff, but I've noticed that it's really easy to get too much product and make it look super sloppy (especially with Tough as Taupe. It's so dark I'll end up looking like I've got a black eye). I've tried using a synthetic brush but then I have trouble picking up a good amount of product. Lastly, unlike what everyone else says, they crease on me so I've still got to use an eyelid primer. They're nice, but they're a bit too much of a hassle for me to work with.

Pigmented? Yes. Smudge proof? Yes. Affordable? Yes!! I love these colour tattoos. They stay on my eyelid and do not smudge or crease! I don't need a base to keep it on nor do I need a powder shadow to set it. Only downside is that they do dry out BUT not for a long time. I've had some of mine for years and they've only recently shown some signs of drying. I just warm it up with my finger and it's good to go!

I have 3 of these and 2 have dried out already. How can I make them creamy again? I loved them but this has proven to be a waste of money.

I have Barely Branded, Matte Brown (LE) and Nude Pink (LE). I love them. Nude Pink on the lid and some softly blended Matte Brown in the crease is the perfect, simplest "no-makeup" bright, open, eye and I depended on it heavily for a couple quarters of school with early classes. I like Barely Branded for a very bright retro eye with some cat-eye liner and classic red lips.I have great results applying them with synthetic pencil brushes. A more standard shadow brush seems to be too much fluff, makes everything difficult, gets all clogged up with wasted product. Fingers work well too but then I end up with shadow under my nail, and the pencil brush is the best way to get a clean, opaque coat of shadow right where I need it with no smudges to clean up.I had Pure Nude, but it was very patchy and hard to use. I wish they had a matte white to use under colorful powder shadows and make them pop.

I will never be without these unless they're discontinued. I love these little pots. Almost all the colors go on smoothly. They STAY. They help to boost a weak powder eyeshadow and act as a base at the same time. The only complaint I have is that they dry out awfully fast. Yes, you can mix the product up with a Q Tip to get it going again but that's kind of a pain. Still totally worth it, I'd just get colors you'll use a lot or be prepared to toss one after a few months of use.

Thrilled! I don't usually even look at drug store makeup, but I wanted to try some cream shadows and different colors than I usually wear, so I thought I'd try these and if the colors worked I'd look for them in a higher quality. But these are fantastic, and I'm sticking with them. I bought Tough as Taupe, Creamy Beige, and Deep Forest (which is a gray-green) from the "leather" collection, and Barely Branded from "metals." They are so easy to apply and they all blend very well together. There is no need for primer, and they last all day long -- they do not budge. You can make the barest sweep of color or really build it, but you need to work fairly quickly to blend colors because once they set it's not easy to blend. I like to use them to line my lower lids since I don't like a harsh line there. I've applied with brushes and fingers and both work fine, but fingers really melt it in, especially for the lid color.They come in a small, heavy glass jar. Kind of inconvenient for travel, but I guess that keeps them fresh longer. I may transfer some to smaller containers for trips.

A worthy impulse buy for those who don't wish to pay an arm and a leg for MAC's Paint Pots. I grabbed the entire collection of 10 shades for $70, as SDM puts them on sale quite frequently. So that's $6.99 per 4 g versus $26 per 5g for MAC Paint Pot. I use mine as base for flaky shimmery MAC shadows as well as rich pigmented liner that is water resistant, however easily removable and won't irritate sensitive skin. Oily skinned ladies are advised to seal it with identical shade of pressed shadow for extra insurance. I've had the collection for over 3 years now and out of curiosity I just stuck my finger in Tough As Taupe 35 and glad to report it retained all the good qualities. It glides, blends, stays and leaves as you wish to manipulate it. No chalkiness, no unpleasant smells. For best results use your fingers or very good quality flexible brush with high density. Flimsy brushes will give you streaks and prejudice against this product.

I have to get on the Love Boat for this one. On a whim, I bought this on sale for dirt cheap. Tough As Taupe looked to be the one I'd use more often but in all honesty I didn't have high expectations for it. What a surprise! It applies easily with fingers in a dabbing motion and can be used lightly but builds up beautifully. One must be decisive however because it dries quickly and is practically bullet proof thereafter; oddly enough, it's easy to remove. This color plays with the light in gray, brown and a touch of purple; and although it's matte, it doesn't look flat. I'm tempted to show this new favorite to my DD but I know she'll steal it.
