11 Best Cream Eyeshadows for Lazy Girls ...

Most of us grew up using those powdery eyeshadows and weren’t even aware of cream eyeshadows out there. Yet, as I grew a bit older, becoming more interested in cosmetics and skin care, I found myself drawn to the appeal that cream eyeshadows had to offer.

Specifically, they offered a shimmery finish instead of a flat, matte one, which I loved for added shine and making my skin glow. And application did not take nearly as long as did the powdery eyeshadow! Bonus!

Check out our list of the best cream eyeshadows that we love, and pick one to try - you'll look amazing with minimal effort and save time on application every single day!

Chanel Illusion D’Ombre

eye,product,organ,brand,cosmetics, Chanel is a great go-to luxury brand for almost anything, even down to their line of cream eyeshadows.

It doesn’t rub off and offers flawless results. It is rated one of the best cream eye shadows in many bridal magazines, but is great for the everyday woman as well.

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow

font,wheel,product,gauge,automotive tail & brake light, Armani is basically one of the most amazing designers that women cling to for fabulous beauty and style products of all kinds. Right down to his line of makeup products, this eye shadow is another proof of the wonder that this designer creates.

Editors and users are obsessing over Eyes to Kill by Armani for its half-powder, half-cream texture. This makes for a complete and simple application that is quick, gorgeous and offers better results than a product that is one or the other. It gives almost a lacquered, magazine-perfect quality to the skin, and for the price, it isn’t that bad considering the brand. This shadow is available in 19 colors and promises to last up to 24 hours.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I like the tarte cream shadow but it only comes in a few colors

I agree with what many people are saying. There should be more options for the everyday person. Unless you are picky about brands, the $20+ price is extreme.

Love this post. I haven't tried the nars cream eyeshadow but I did try their shadow pencils and wasn't impressed. It creased on me :(

Yves Rocher has a great range online.

ELF. Best ever. Namely for the price.

Love it

I also use the maybelline color tatoo and they are really good in term if color pay off ang longevity

She should make a drugstore one, not everyone can afford these prices.

I have tried many of these and have to agree that they are among the best out there. Cream shadow is not forgiving at all. If you want the rich bold look they provide you have to make sure your using something good. At my age I consider it on of my "splurge" items. Anything less leaves you with an unsightly, caked mess.
