Here’s a revelation: Cream and stick eyeshadows don’t get the attention they deserve. These hardworking products could be the best thing that will ever happen to your makeup routine. Don’t believe us? Maybe these reasons will convince you.
1. Cream eyeshadows are easy to use.
Working with a thick, liquid formula may sound challenging, but it’s actually the opposite. All you need to do is dab and blend the product on your lids using your fingers. A makeup brush isn’t necessary!
2. Cream eyeshadows are great for oily eyelids.
Their formula is made to stay on even on the oiliest of eyelids. Once they’ve dried down on the skin, they won’t go anywhere. You can just apply the cream eyeshadow and leave it be. You may also use it as a base for powder eyeshadows.
3. Cream eyeshadows are pigmented.
These babies possess intense pigment—you’ll get the opaque color you want in one swipe. You don’t need to apply multiple layers to make your lids pop, so you’ll be done with your eye makeup in no time!
