Cream eyeshadows can take your look from 0 to 100 in seconds.
Eyeshadow can make or break a look. Powder eyeshadows are messy and can crease and liquid eyeshadows can be hard to use, so what’s the solution?
Cream eyeshadows are the underdog of the makeup world. They require very little skill, all you need to do is put the eyeshadow directly onto your eyelid using your fingers. That’s it, no other products required.
Different from other eyeshadows, these won’t smudge or crease, making them low maintenance but impactful.
Ideal for both subtle and bold looks, cream eyeshadow comes in a wide variety of colours, shades and textures.
Some cream eyeshadows can also double as highlighter or blush, making this product extremely versatile.
