Okay, the full name of this eyeshadow is “5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF15”, but that’s just too long for the title of my post! So I hauled this a little while ago using my bareMinerals personal sale day discount. I’ve finally had a chance/time to try out one of these shades and wanted to share my thoughts.
I tried out the shade “Blushing Pink” over the weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect, although I’ve heard good things. I’ve never been a huge fan of cream products – in any makeup form. I find many cream shadows difficult to use in a way that makes them look natural and I don’t particularly love the way cream blushes apply. Don’t get me wrong, I still do own and use some of these products, but they’re not my favorite or top choices. Anyway, I wasn’t sure if I’d like these cream shadows or not, but wanted to give it a try.
They come in these sleek little packages with a semi-frosted glass. The shadows can be applied using the little applicator, which makes the whole process super easy. I swiped it onto my eyelids and then blended it in with a brush.
The shade is a very neutral pink which worked for me since I was having a super casual day.
The cream shadow was cool to the touch so it felt really refreshing on the eyelids. I was pleasantly surprised that it applied and blended with extreme ease. I find a lot of cream shadows to be very stiff and hard to blend so you end up stuck with patchy eyeshadow which is so not cute. However, this was not the case with this cream shadow at all so I really love it!
I wore it for a good 10 hours and it did not budge or wear off at all so it was a breeze to apply and lasted all day. It’s a for sure winner in my book!
