I am not going over what i used on my face today, just strictly my eyes. If you are interested keep reading! πŸ˜€


Here is the extremely cheap palette i picked up and used for this look. It is by L.A. colors the name is “Sunflower.”

I believe this cost me $1.00 at the drugstore, so if any of you see a palette that is SO cheap it seems too good to be true, try it anyways! πŸ˜‰

A few other products i used on my eyes:

  • AlmayΒ Liquid Liner in “Black”
  • Mally Base Shadow/Primer
  • LancΓ΄me High-Definition Mascara in “Black”
  • Salon Perfect Faux Lashes “Perfectly Glamorous”

Quick compare! FLOWER cream eyeshadow VS. Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to do a quick compare & review on a FLOWER cosmetics color play cream eyeshadow vs. A Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow. These both have their pros and cons, since cream shadows in general can be a tricky thing to use. Sometimes the color is just not as pigmented as you’d expect from a creamy shadow, the overall texture may make it harder for you to apply, it doesn’t last quite as long as normal eyeshadow.. Well, hopefully this review will shed some light on the cream eyeshadow situation.

The colors i will be using as examples today are Maybelline’s “Bad To The Bronze” and FLOWER’s “Flirty Floret.”

Bad To The Bronze” is the pot shown towards the bottom, and “Flirty Floret” is the one towards the top. I would definitely call Maybelline’s more of a champagne/light taupe color, while FLOWER’s is a true bronze brown. As you can see from the picture above, FLOWER’s shadow has more of a whipped light texture, while Maybelline’s is somewhat pressed into the jar making it a bit harder to get a good amount of product.

Here are some swatches:

FLOWER PROS:

  • Highly pigmented gorgeous shimmery color.
  • Whipped texture makes it nice to apply.
  • A little goes a LONG way.
  • If there is creasing going on, you can easily smooth it out and fix it.

Maybelline PROS:

  • Longevity
  • Smudge/Smear Proof

It seems like what one is lacking, the other one has covered. So if you are looking for a pigmented easy to apply cream shadow, i would suggest you go with FLOWER’s. If you’re looking for a cream shadow that stays put but isn’t as pigmented & and you don’t mind that any creasing is harder to correct, go with Maybelline’s.

Thanks for reading!
