Illamasqua sell both powder and cream eyeshadows, as well as loose pigments. I own a selection of the cream and powder variety (review of the powders is coming up). Their are fewer varieties of cream shadows than powder, currently there are only 14 cream shadows available. They retail at £15 for 2g. The cream eyeshadows i bought were from Illamasqua's end-of-line sale so they were half price at £7.50 and i got 7 colours.
Pretty, pretty ice cream and candy colours.
Top row: Crumble, Midas, Stir
Bottom Row: Stimulas, Suck, Love, Outcast
Swatches of all the colours are here
The colours are beautiful and what you see in the box is what you get on your skin. The formula is lovely and... creamy :P Soft and silky and highly pigmented. It's easy to sheer out or apply heavily for a brighter colour. They have a slight sheen (stir is shimmery, the others aren't) but it's not very noticeable.
They come in the same packaging as Illamasqua's powder blusher, only smaller.
I've said before what i think about the packaging, so i won't say it again. The reason my pots are so messy in the first photo is because i've been applying the majority of these with my fingers, and i'm a clumsy and messy person. I applied Outcast with a blush and you can see it's nice and tidy :)
Now onto the wear of the products.
Freshly applied over eyeshadow primer and set with powder. Stir on browbone, Midas on main part of eyelid, Outcast as eyeliner.
After about 5 hours.
As you can see, even with primer and powder to set, the colour on the main part of my eyelid has faded and creased like MAD. The eyeliner colour has faded a little, but it's ok and the highlight colour on my browbone looks about the same.
So would i repurchase? Hmm i'm not really sure to be honest. There is only one colour left (Amour which is a gorgeous duck-egg pale blue/green) that i really like and honestly i think £15 is too much for a product that creases so badly. If they were discounted i might think about buying more. They make a good eyeliner, and may well be good for other parts of the face, but it is sold as an eyeshadow and i personally don't think it's great for that use. The colours i have are gorgeous but i don't know how often i will wear them simply because they fade and crease so badly :(
