For a cream eyeshadow, I look for luxurious creamy texture, great staying power and ease of application. It is like By Terry read my mind. Ombre Blackstar is ultra-smooth, highly-pigmented cream eye shadow in a pencil-like form. This crayon has a soft texture that can be applied to get an opaque, rich finish or blended out for a wash of color. The staying power is thanks to what By Terry calls a “temporary tattoo” coverage effect. The waterproof formula seriously does not budge.
There are two new shades for Holiday: Blue Obsession (top) and Ombre Mercure (bottom). Normally shy of blue eye shadow, I have fallen for Blue Obsession, an inky almost-black navy. Ombre Mercure is my new everyday favorite as a silvery taupe. The black pearl extract in both shades lend to a shimmery finish. Bonus points for antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients.
