BEST FOR: Shadow base or simple shadow looks.
QUICK REVIEW: The applicator puts a damper on an otherwise superior eye shadow formulation – which allows you to create natural looks without getting cakey or heavy.
the REVIEW: Creamy eyes is a semi-opaque matte cream to “powder” shadow that comes in an Ellis Faas bullet with a brush applicator tip. The formula has a rich, thicker consistency in comparison to other liquid/cream shadows and are surprisingly easy to apply and blend. Of the colors I chose, E104 has proven the most versatile, its rich bark brown tone provides a great base for a smokey eye, is easy to use as a natural looking eye liner (applied with the pen) and even a neutral brow color. E108 is a good standard base color for darker skin tones or as a natural lid color for pale skin tones. I did have some issue with E107 – which I intended as a contour color, was a smidgen too light for my Summer skin tone. I was surprised that the visible grayish undertone did not make my eyes look tired but rather worked well as a quick lid color.
The formula did not build up on the eye lid even when layered. Creamy Eyes also has a very subtle sheen (not shimmer) that made it look incredibly natural. As a base, it made shadows look extremely rich and even – and with a powder shadow or on its own, the effects lasted all day. Note: I don’t have oily eye lids – but I would think these might crease on those who do.
1. E108 on the eye lid, E104 on the brow (I used a stiff brow brush). 2. E107 in the crease, E104 top and bottom as liner. 3. Tiny bit of E104 blended in outer corner, two coats mascara.
