Shop Cream Eyeshadow


If you want to create a quick and easy everyday makeup look, you can’t go wrong with a cream eyeshadow. Adding colour and depth with just a single swipe, cream-based eyeshadows are simple to apply, uncomplicated, and forgiving. They’re perfect for the beauty beginner or anyone looking to save a little time in the morning.


So what is a cream eyeshadow, and why should you be including one in your beauty collection? Cream eyeshadows typically come in pots but can also be found in stick formulas and tubes. Cream shadows work best as a wash of colour or as a base. They can help neutralise any discolouration of the lid; add a gorgeous shimmer, as with a champagne or rose gold eyeshadow; and can be worn alone or under powder eyeshadow to enhance intensity and longevity. A cream eyeshadow is perfect for dry skin, as the texture allows for effortlessly blending without clinging to dry patches. But if you have oily lids, you may want to stick to powder eyeshadows. Creams are also great for on-the-go application: simply use your fingertips to add instant definition to your makeup look.


When looking for the best cream eyeshadow, choose a product that offers maximum longevity, as cream shadows can be prone to creasing. If you want a long-lasting makeup look, you’ll need a cream eyeshadow that will stick around. MAC Cream Eyeshadow Pots are available in a range of matte and pearlescent finishes. These shadows are best for brightening the eye area and diminishing pigmentation, so they make the perfect eyeshadow bases. However, if you want a bolder look, we recommend MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint. These aqua cream eyeshadows are water-resistant and create both daytime and evening looks with a high-impact and highly pigmented finish.


For the best organic cream eyeshadow, Jane Iredale Smooth Affair for Eyes is a popular choice. This product, with its long-lasting and nourishing formula, can be used either as a primer or for a sheer wash of colour.

Good stuff!

I actually purchased this mainly to try on my oily large pore nose after seeing makeup hacks using it this way from a few years ago. And it actually works well for that. I generally put it over a normal primer and application is key. It matches my skin tone well so I usually don’t put additional, or much, foundation over the top, just setting powder. I’ve used it on my eyes, it’s a good base. Only...
