The Cream Color for Eyes formula is supposed to be “ultra-pigmented” and “metallic” with a “creamy formula” that doesn’t “crease or smudge.” The majority of the shades I’ve tried in the range live up to those things–good pigmentation but can be applied sheerly (use less and/or apply with a fluffy brush) or kept opaque (a little goes a long way) with eight to twelve hours of wear (no primer). They’re blendable and dry down fast enough not to crease too easily while you’re working on them but not so quickly that they don’t budge. I did find that a couple of the new shades were more emollient than past shades and did have a longer dry down time and were harder to keep out of creases (in this review, that would be Siren Blue).

A little dab, a swipe, and you have yourself a gorgeous look. I use this on the lid, up into the crease, and against the lower last line. Add black or brown liner to the lower water line, some mascara, and you can walk out the door. Or you can amp this up to full dolled out glam. It's pricey at first take, but the amount you need makes the value quite good. A little goes a very long way. It's beautiful, glad I got it, and I will be getting a few more.

This is a gorgeous product that I love for all-over-the-lid. It can be applied with fingers or brushes. It blends well, doesn't crease, and stays all day. This color in particular is great for a one-and-done shade or as a base. However, this is almost an exact dupe for ELF Smudge Pot in Cruisin' Chic (which is my everyday go-to). I bought this because of the hype, and they are really indistinguishable from less than a foot away. If you look in macro, the TF has some subtle silver sparkle, while the ELF has a subtle gold shimmer, but their base and overall look are exact. Love both, but for the price when they are equal quality, the ELF has to beat it!

This is one of those products that you splurge on and feel a little guilty doing so....until you feel how amazing it is and see how long wearing it is. This color worked perfectly for me as a wash of color on it's on or used with MAC Paint Pots to create quick looks. It definitely doesn't follow the traditional cream eye shadow formula because it is so airy and mousse-like that it's difficult to compare to any other brand. It only takes a little bit to get amazing results...another reason the price tag might be a little easier to swallow once you've found your perfect color. I highly recommend you splurge at least once on this! (The only negative I can mention is the horrible price!!!)
