I find cream eye shadows to be hit and miss. Some of them are amazing, and others are creasy, greasy and horrible. I persist with them because when cream eye shadows work they're amazing. When I bought my Becca cream eye shadow I was hoping that it would fall into the amazing category, but it didn't.
No matter how I apply this it creases really badly. I've tried everything I can think of and it still creases. I've used primer and no primer. I've set it with powder, I've put powder eye shadow over the top, I've applied it very sheerly and very heavily. I've used a brush and used my fingers. Regardless of how I've applied it, it always creases within an hour. And it creases badly too, it's like all the eye shadow migrated up my eyelid into one horrible line of eyeshadow.
If I had oily eyelids I could understand why this shadow creases so badly, but I don't. I've used other cream eye shadows successfully. It's a real disappointment, because the colour is gorgeous.
Would I buy it again? No, it's a mess.
