The Best Liquid & Cream Eyeshadows

If there is one makeup product that has taken over my collection in the last 6 months or so, it would be liquid eyeshadows. I just can't get enough of them and they have been pretty much all I have been using on my eyes so far this year. Occasionally I'll add a matte shadow into the crease but liquid and cream shadows have become a makeup bag must-have. 
The Best Liquid & Cream Eyeshadows
The Glossier Lidstars are what started my obsession with liquid eyeshadows. I'm on my second tube of Cub and it's one of my favourite products from Glossier. The Lidstars are the sheerest out of the bunch in my collection and they're perfect to blend with your fingers on the lid and into the crease, add some mascara and you're good to go. Even though these are on the sheer side, you can build up the intensity of them and I love that they have a slight sparkle to them. I love how long-lasting these are, almost all of the liquid shadows I'm talking about to today are extremely long-wearing. You can read my full review on the Lidstars - HERE. 

If you're on a budget and want some liquid eyeshadows in your life, you need the Lottie London Eye Foils (full review here). These are £5 each and I will definitely be ordering the shades I don't already have soon. These are super reflective, Faded has glitter running through it whereas Savage is duo-chrome. Another budget-friendly option is the Colourpop SuperNova Shadows, I've always been a huge fan of Colourpop and I got the shade Bellini, recently and I can't get enough of it. It's extremely pigmented and so easy to blend. It works well with matte powder shadows as well and you can read my full review with swatches - HERE

The Pixi Fairy Lights are a cross between the Glossier Lidstars and the Lottie London Eye Foils. It has a pigmented base with glitter running through it and has an illuminating appearance on the eyes. I love the glitter in this product as it doesn't fall out onto the cheeks throughout the day like some shadows can do. I find that this one is one of the better ones to use with other eyeshadows as they blend so easily together. The Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop in Honey Bunny was one of the first cream eyeshadows I purchased and it's one I find myself using quite a lot even a year after I first purchased it. It isn't as pigmented as the others but I love how glowy it is on the lids. It has a cooling sensation to it when you apply it which I like. It's really creamy but does need the most work compared to the other products in this post. 

The Milk Makeup Eye Pigments are probably my favourites out of the bunch and I can see myself ordering every shade by the end of 2019. These are quite expensive at £20.50 each but I couldn't resist getting three of them and I do think that they are worth the price tag. These are absolutely stunning on the eyes and everything I had been looking for in a liquid eyeshadow. These are extremely pigmented, metallic, long-wearing and they don't budge throughout the day. You only need the tiniest amount so they will last a long time so they are worth investing in. My favourite two shades are Gig and After Party, you can see my full review with swatches - HERE
