Of late, I've been loving eyeshadows. I've been diligently wearing my eyeshadows every morning now, and I've discovered another love. Cream eyeshadows.
I mean, what better friend for good eyeshadows than a good eyeshadow base, right?
I first got hooked on Estee Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in-Place Shadow Creme sometime last year, and since then I've picked up a few more, with Mochachino and Pink Pearl as my latest purchases.
My morning routine these days now consists of slapping on a cream eyeshadow as base, followed by the powder eyeshadow applications. It works pretty well, even when you're running a tight morning schedule.
And I've been reaching for my shadow cremes quite a bit.
They're creamy (duh) and applying them with my fingers are really easy-peasy. They last pretty decently, but don't hold up quite as well as my MAC Paint Pots on my oily lids. After about 12 hours, I do notice some creasing, but nothing unforgivably major.
Pink Pearl: A sheer champagne pink. So pretty.
Mochachino: Looks brown in the pot, but swatches taupe-ish.
Antique Gold: True to its name, this one's quite a bronzey-gold.
At RM65 a pot, I think they're quite decently priced for Estees. All three colours are currently available in Malaysia, although I wish we had Cafe Au Lait and Butter Cream. I mean, just look at them here!
To conclude, I love them to bits! And I wished we had a wider colour selection in Malaysia. I definitely wouldn't mind picking up a few more.
Have you tried any shadow cremes?
