Makeup Wars: Best Cream Shadows


 I Bought It  Affiliate Link

It is Makeup Wars time again! This time the Makeup Wars bloggers are sharing their favorite Cream Shadows. This includes any cream shadow type product in potted or pencil form. Choosing a favorite cream shadow product to feature for this Makeup War was so easy for me because I have such a clear favorite in this category!

I adore the ease of cream shadows. As much as I love creating more detailed eye looks, swiping on a cream shadow with my fingertips is pretty much the quickest and easiest way to do my eyes. Whenever I am in a hurry, cream shadows are what I reach for. Nothing beats a good long-wearing wash of color! What I don't love? Cream shadows that wear off quickly or crease on the lids. I need a cream shadow that holds up all day. Otherwise, what is the point?

What are the Makeup Wars?
Before diving into my selection for Best Cream Shadow, let me tell you a bit more about the Makeup Wars. The Makeup Wars Bloggers are a group of top beauty bloggers that publish coordinated bi-weekly posts. The Makeup Wars bloggers collectively pick topics to blog about (e.g., Top 10 Products, Beauty Pampering, etc). We publish our posts at precisely the same time and link up through the graphics at the top and bottom of our posts. It is always so much fun to see what products this group of top bloggers is using and loving.


So, are you curious as to what I selected as my hands-down favorite Cream Shadow??? Keep reading to find out!
My Favorite Cream Shadow: 


My hands-down absolute favorite cream eyeshadows are Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Tattoo Shadows. Don't you just LOVE it when you discover a favorite and it happens to be a drugstore brand! As much as I love my high-end cosmetics, finding a true favorite product at the drugstore is such a thrill! My Maybelline Color Tattoo Shadows out-perform all of the other cream shadows in my makeup collection: high end and drugstore alike!
I have quite an assortment of these Maybelline Color Tattoo Shadows. However, I do have a couple favorite shades: Tough as Taupe (matte taupe) and Barely Beige (shimmery golden champagne). I honestly do not think that I could live without Barely Beige!!! I probably wear it at least 3-4 days a week! A simple swipe of Barely Beige is all I need on my lids when going for a natural and quick makeup look.

Maybelline does make some good cream shadows.... I'm a fan of both of these ones as well, and I'm dying to check out the new ones they put out!

love barely beige shade

Chantel said...

Nice shadows, I still have not tried these Maybelline Tattoo shadows yet.

Natasha Papousek said...

I'm also a big fan of Maybelline's Color tattoo creams -- and Barely Beige is my fave of the bunch -- it's a neutral shade for every day and makes a great primer for powders as well. I'm also really enjoying Edgy Emerald for a pop of fresh color.

Funny but I look awful in Tough as Taupe but I love Barely Beige. I think it's a great quickie or base for other shadows.

@kelly-These shades are great for neutral-lovers, aren't they! :)

@BlushingNoir-I am dying to try the new shades, too!

@IceQueen81-It is one of my all time fav shadows, cream or otherwise. The shade is just perfect for the lid!

@Chantel-They really are fabulous and so affordable! Totally recommend!

@Natasha-I will have to check out that Emerald shade!

@Marcia-So true! It is a great quickie shade. :)

I *love* the Maybelline Color Tattoos! I was certain I was going to love the Taupe, but was so disappointed when I smeared it the first time and it went almost Grey on me! But the Beige is so much nicer. I love their LE colors, too!

Prime Beauty said...

Such pretty shades. I like the L'Oreal ones too.

Pammy BlogsBeauty said...

@Christina-Yes, so pretty!

@Phyrra-lol, yes I have made a dent! I know that I always love to see beauty blogger's well-loved products! :) The dent: a sign of love! :)

@oldergirlbeauty-Seems that the taupe is getting mixed reviews here today. I actually kinda like that it wears greay. :) Can't wait to try their LE colors.

@Prime Beauty-The L'Oreal Infallible ones? Agreed! Those are amazing!

Eugenia said...

I have yet to try these yet! I love love the simple color!!
