Cream Eyeshadow I Can’t Quit

links + small things

I love wearing cream eyeshadow, not only because it’s easy to apply but also because it lasts all day. It creates a really beautiful base for layering powder shadows on top of it, but can also be worn alone.

Below is a list of my favorite colors and formulas of cream eyeshadow:

Laura Mercier Au Naturel – probably my most worn color because it really makes blue eyes pop!

Laura Mercier Caramel – a gorgeous warm shade of toffee.

Merit Vachetta – this is a rich warm brown, looks great with a nude lip.

Merit Studio – this is almost exactly the same as Laura Mercier Au Naturel!

Bobbi Brown Nude Beach – love this for a neutral brown with a hint of warmth.

Mac eyeshadow in Soft Brown (not a cream): this is such a beautiful warm brown to apply to the crease of the eye to add depth.

My favorite brush to use with cream eyeshadow is the EF1 by Makeup by Mario. I use the flat side for the cream shadow and the rounded side for any powder shadow I’m applying to the crease!

Merit also makes a great cream shadow brush that is perfect for applying a bit of color on your lower lash line as well.

I find cream eye shadows always crease for me, even with an eyeshadow primer. Any suggestions?

hmm I’m sorry that happens! You may have oily eyelids so perhaps powder shadows are best for you!

Merits foundation brush is excellent too.

I don’t know if It’s just me but when I click on the links, they don’t load for me- they just take me back to this page.

Is the Bobbi Brown Nude Beach too similar to Laura Mercier’s Au Naturel to need both?

Jackie says · 12.19.23

I have both, and while similar, still different. The Laura Mercier Au Natural has a bit of shimmer, not much just a bit. The Bobbi Brown is more matte and a bit darker.

What is the Chanel eyeliner that you are using? Thank you!
