Cream Eyeshadow Loves

A good cream shadow can literally be a lazy girl's best friend. When I want to wear eyeshadow, yet I know I don't actually have enough time to apply anything decently with a brush, I reach for a cream. (What can I say? I love my sleep.) 

These are some of my favorite cream shadows. Some I adore for just a natural wash of color; others I love with a touch of smudged black liner for an ultra-simple and quick smokey eye. They do me right every time.

: Dior Météore is undoubtedly the sparkliest of the group; it looks beautiful when paired a semi-matte complexion base and a wine lip (like in this look). 

CHANEL Diapason is quite a shimmery one as well (the blue-toned sparkle is stunning!), although it's much less apparent when applied with fingers than with a brush. 

: Maybelline Bad to the Bronze is one most of us know and love. Mine is starting to dry out a bit, but the color is still as beautiful as ever - the perfect mixture of brown and taupe. 

: MAC Constructivist is a smokey eye favorite; UD 24/7 liner in Perversion smudged into my top and bottom lash lines finishes off the look perfectly (as evident in this post). I've experienced quite disappointing wear-times with many Paint Pots, but Constructivist holds up nicely on my lids.

: Buxom's Stay-There Eyeshadows are completely underrated, and it's a shame because the formula is very similar to the much less wallet-friendly CHANEL Illusion d'Ombre formula. Mutt is my current go-to everyday shade for a beautifully subtle wash of golden bronze. 

: I spoke about Smashbox Topaz in more detail in this post. I often wear it on its own for a touch of somethin' somethin'; otherwise, I pair it under nearly every taupe eyeshadow in my collection.


Wearing Buxom Mutt all over the lid
With the exception of Diapason, can you see a color theme with my favorites? Neutrals will always have my heart, after all.
