Cream Eyeshadow Pots to Suit Every Budget

I used to be a MAC eyeshadow girl through and through, but in the recent years, I have enjoyed experimenting with different formulas and brands. Cream eyeshadows have become my go-to when I am in a rush. They require minimal effort and blending, so ideal to slap on and head out the door.
I’ve rounded up my favourite cream eyeshadow pots which are varying prices so everyone has an option to add to their collection.

Cream Pot Eyeshadow Swatches, Charlotte Tilbury Jean and Bette, 3ina 312 and 313, Kiko 03 and MAC Groundwork

Starting with the most affordable of the bunch, Kiko Cream Crush Eyeshadow priced at £6.90. Kiko is such an underrated brand, their cream shadows are very pigmented and once set they don’t budge! I have the shade 03 which is a matte mauve colour. I would also thoroughly recommend their stick cream shadows which are dupes of the By Terry Ombre Blackstars.

Next up and still very affordable is the 3ina Cream Eyeshadows*, costing £8.95. These are perfect for adding sparkle to your lids. They are like a whipped mousse in texture but dry down to a powder. These have serious staying power. I have a more in-depth review of the brand here. I have the shades 313 which is a copper champagne colour and 312 which is a lavender champagne colour.

MAC Groundwork, £16, is a product I will always repurchase. It’s a mid-toned brown that adds definition and really makes my green eyes pop. It’s a one wash wonder, just slap it on and blend the edges with ease. These do dry out very quickly, as you can see mine as come away from the edges, so make sure you always close the lid tightly. 

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadows are the crème de la creme of cream eyeshadow pots. These beautifully packaged shadows will cost you £22 each but they are well worth it. They provide buildable colour that looks effortless on the eyes. I have the shades Jean which is a shimmering champagne, which is a classic for anyone’s collection and the colour Bette which is a burnt brown.
