OK.. I am an absolute sucker when it comes to cream shadows. Theres just something about the convenience that I love. I have extremely oily eyelids and these cream shadows (which i mostly use as base) holds up really well. The only other color tattoo I have is bad to the bronze and that one works amazingly. I Have picked up two new colors awhile ago when the spring collection was out. The two color I picked up was #35 COOL CRUSH and #45 LAVISH LAVENDER.

COOL CRUSH in the pot is this gorgeous Silver duo chrome with blue,purple, and pink. Theres just so much dimension that I wish translated on the eyes. When applying it to the eyes, it totally loses that 3D color effect. The more you blend out, it just turns into a silver. I would say its more of a silver with a hue of purple. Honestly, if you already have a silver cream shadow then theres not need in picking this one up. Don’t get sucked in with how pretty it looks in the pot!

LAVISH LAVENDER is a lavender metallic color. The light purple looks a bit darker when applied. Not as bright as I would’ve thought it would be but its still a wonderful light purple. This is a unique color to own if your like me and purple is one of those colors that your comfortable venturing out on compared to say.. orange?
All of these are very smooth in texture and applies like a dream. It makes my shadows last all day without creasing and I use these in place of a primer.
Such beautiufl shades! I am obsessed with Maybelline color tattoos.
