How pigmented do you prefer your cream eyeshadows?

I don’t mind sheerer for one-and-done, which isn’t my style per se, so I tend to like something pretty opaque since I’m more likely to use it as a base or as one of several eyeshadows.

Preferably opaque, but one that I can also sheer out if I intend on using it as a heavy duty base to anchor and get better adhesive/staying power with more flaky or sparkly eyeshadows that could potentially be fallout prone. Also, many cream eyeshadows have a wax base that can provide an effective barrier against my allergy tears ruining my eye look.
And yet others that I wish to use all on their own for most of my look, like the ones by Phytosurgence, those I want full opacity with zero patchiness or lifting up of the shadow as I smooth it out and blend it.
