Hello my lovelies!
I'm on a bit of a blogging roll at the moment, thanks to some much needed time-off and access to my family's electricals (thank you dad, thank you Nats...)
Today I wanted to show you two lovely cream eyeshadows I've fallen in love with over the past month, to the extent that they've almost (almost!) replaced my beloved Naked palette for every-day make-up.
The first is Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre Longwear Luminous eyeshadow in Ebloui (86). It's a gorgeous red-toned brown that can be sheered out for a soft daytime look or built up for a more dramatic effect. I like to use it either in the crease for a soft smoky eye or as an eyeliner as it's such a beautifully rich colour. Swatches ahoy!
Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit was my first venture into cream eyeshadows and began what I feel will be a long love affair with these eyeshadows (MAC's Indianwood Paintpot is on its way to me now after perusing the Debenhams site...)
This is a lovely natural shimmer which helps to brighten up my eyes and also looks gorgeous as a highlight if you like your products to multi-task (I do, they should earn their keep!). I like using this all over the eyelid or in the inner corners when I'm rocking my 50s eyeliner look. It also works well with Ebloui for a lovely shimmery daytime eye, finished off with heaps of mascara!
Chanel Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadows are available from all Chanel counters for £21.50; Benefit Creaseless Cream eyeshadows are £14 from all the usual suspects!
Do you favour cream or powder eyeshadows? Would you recommend any? Let me know!
