Cream Eyeshadow

I love how versatile they can be: as a base/primer, as a sheer wash, or as an intense eyeshadow. The problem with cream eyeshadow is that finding a formula that is easy to work with, has good pigmentation (or goes on evenly, if you want sheerer coverage), that is also long-wearing isn’t always easy!

Panorama

LORAC Panorama Color Source Buildable Blush ($23.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation, which was easily buildable to opaque, true-to-pan coverage with a second layer. The powder felt soft, smooth, and silky and wasn’t powdery at all. It blended out beautifully on the skin and had a luminous finish that looked glowing but not shimmery. The blush wore nicely on my skin for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Limelight

LORAC Limelight Light Source Illuminating Highlighter ($23.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light, minty green with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed to appear cooler in the pan, but the shimmer itself seemed warmer (like a pale gold) so that it appeared warmer as I blended out the color. The consistency was soft, smooth, and a touch thin, but it applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. It had a high-shine finish–definitely not a subtle highlighter–but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This was a fun highlight to work with, as the aqua hue transformed anything I paired it with. On my normal-to-dry skin, the highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

ColourPop Boyfriend Stealer Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contained a muted, medium pink and a darker, rosy plum (both with warmer undertones). The two shades could be used together, as they created a nice gradient, but I’d likely reach for a darker or lighter shade to add more contrast. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection. Some of the duos are sold out, and I really hope ColourPop will consider releasing the shades individually, at the very least they are on 2/14!
