The Best 5 Cream Eyeshadows To Add To Your Stash STAT
A cream eyeshadow is a crowd pleaser for many reasons: not only can it take less than two minutes to apply, but it also dries seamlessly with little finesse or blending, making it perhaps the most user-friendly eye product on the market. Our love for cream eyeshadows is a potent one — so we rounded up five of our favorites that will make your makeup routine more efficient, hands down.
An oldie but total goodie, Maybelline Color Tattoo is the first on our list for a reason: It’s pigmented, easy to use and comes in a variety of shades. The consistency of these is thick, creamy and offers high coverage for up to 24 hours of wear.
Although it’s touted as a liquid, we believe this Shimmer & Glow Shadow by Stila deserves a cream title thanks to its thick texture, rich pigment and long-lasting finish. We also love its doe-foot applicator, which makes it incredibly easy to apply with just a few swipes.
Creamy metallic eyeshadow doesn’t get much better than NYX’s Foil Play. This high-shine formula not only brings a ton of color to the table, but it also dries down incredibly fast and is a perfect base for any glittering eye look.
This stick by Jouer is one of our favorite cream shadows when we’re on the go. The stick format makes it easy to apply a sheer coat onto the lid and crease — perfect for on its own for a minimalist look or as a base for a maximalist eye look.
Another metallic favorite, Full Metal Shadow is the creamy eye product your stash has been missing. We love this formula because it’s really all you need to create a striking eye, whether you’re going for full-on glam (with the shade Gold Source), or neutral and clean (with Taupe Drop). Better yet, you can apply this onto a small angled brush and also use it as a liner — it’s that smooth.
