Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoeloverdiva Beautiful and easy to apply
I was unsure how I would like this since it's called a cream shadow. I saw the Burberry smoky eye 2015 tutorial and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. The consistency is more dry shadow but glided on in a creamy way. It's very unusual. I normally use an eye shadow brush, but for this I use my finger. I purchased Mink and Charcoal. I also go over my kohl eyeliner with the Charcoal. The Charcoal goes on lighter than the color in the pot, a perfect light Charcoal with a slight sheen. I do think wearing a primer with these is a good idea. Otherwise it creases. (I use Nars eye primer.)
I loved this so much I then got Damson, Dusty Pink, and Dusky Mauve.
This is one of those times where I tried something new and ended up loving it.
Why is this so great, it's fresh and full of color but in an elegant way. You can do a new modern smoky eye with the right amount of color. If you want to be super dark, sure you can build it up, but for me I prefer a more understated look but it has a natural looking way to it and it's easy to use.
A perk is that the packaging is beautiful, looks wonderful on your make-up table.

Not a big makeup junkie, especially eye shadow, but this stuff is great. It just makes me look better even with my very limited skills in applying the stuff.
Color is sublime even though it is nothing like what shows in the picture (at least on my monitor). Texture is great too.

My Nordstroms doesn't carry the Burberry make-up in the store, so I had to order this. I didn't mind since I could return it to the store and Nordstoms makes returning products hassle-free. I ordered Mink and really like it. It is a lighter shade of brown, but can be applied more lavishly for a deeper shade. The texture is different - sort of like a creamy powder. I use my finger for lightly applying it and a brush for more liberal application. I have just ordered 3 more shades and may end up ordering more. While this doesn't come in a lot of colors, they do cover the spectrum - the only color I would add would be a sort of mossy green, which they don't offer. This shadow also stays on really well and doesn't tend to gather in eyelid creases.

OMGosh this formula is perfection. I bought in Charcoal and Mink. The Mink color is a soft and wearable brown. It is perfect for an everyday eye shadow. I was worried that the Charcoal would be too dark, but I use a sheer amount and the color is more of a grey which is also wonderful for daytime, but easy to apply more for a dramatic look.
The formula is so easy to apply with a fingertip, lasts all day without a primer (at least it does on my eye lids), and doesn't settle in folds of eye lid.
This is easily my new favorite eye shadow!!
