My Cream Eyeshadows

I was inspired by a post done by the lovely Lily Pebbles where she featured her cream eyeshadow collection (read the post here!). I have quite a few so I thought I'd show you the ones I've got! I love cream eyeshadows. There is something about them that is so easy; you can use your finger to slap some on your lids and you're good to go, or you can blend them out easily with a brush as well. When I'm having a lazy day and can't be bothered with powder eyeshadows I often just use a cream shadow and some mascara! I also like to use cream eyeshadows as a base and layer powder shadows on top for a little extra staying power. Enough rambling, on to the shadows!

There is an overall of all the little beauties. They are mostly MAC Paint Pots, but there are a few Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows and even a Maybelline one as well.

So there you have it! If I had to choose a favourite, I'd probably pick MAC's Paint Pot in "Bare Study". It fits well with a lot of powder eyeshadows I wear on a daily basis so I can layer it with those, or it looks beautiful on its own too. If I'm rushing off to work, I often just put a layer of Bare Study on my eyes and I quite like the outcome! 

Do you guys love cream shadows as much as me? Any that you have your eye on


  1. Love this post - really want the Groudworks paintpot by MAC! My favourites are Benefits creaseless cream shadow in Sippin' n Dippin' and Maybelline colour tatoo in On And On Bronze! xx

    1. I have been lusting after that Maybelline shade for a while! I really want to get it but I kept telling myself that I have so many I don't really need another one. I know I'll just end up buying it anyway though... oops!
