Cream Eyeshadow by Victoria Secret and Maybelline

I have always had a hit and miss with the cream eye shadows. I found that I like the matte cream eye shadows and my favorite is the MAC paint pot. They are just perfect. It covers the dark eye lids and make it looks natural. So I went and bought the metallic cream eye shadow just to try it.

Maybelline Color Tatoo Metal in 70 Barely Branded

The Packaging is in a pot which is like MAC paint pot which I love. I think I got this probably 2 years ago, I know πŸ™„ , I am just writing a review on it. The color looks like a beige with a yellow undertone color with some metallic element. When you apply on the lids, it goes easily but it’s not opaque enough to cover my dark eyelids. And I don’t think this color suits me at all. And I could see some creasing in my eyelids by an hour or so 😦 .

And I haven’t been reaching for this product. I think I used it only once and I knew that it wasn’t for me. Overall, I think you could give this a miss or maybe this color will suit you πŸ™‚ .

From L to R : Barely Branded, Golden Lights

Victoria Secret Hypergloss Eye Shimmer in Golden Lights

I got this in a clearance for few bucks and thought it would be great to try them. The packaging is in tube which is easy to use. The formula itself is like a semi-liquid. It goes on sheer golden lights. I do like the color but I have the same issue. It does not cover my dark eyelids. And it does crease on my eyelids 😦

So I am thinking maybe I should stay away from the glittery cream shadow and check out their matte cream shadow. Maybe there is a haul in the near future πŸ˜€ .
