Cream Shadow Comparisons - My Week of Reviews

For those who rode the wave of shadows with me - Thanks.  It has been fun.   A lot of makeup, lots of info and a hound dog impersonation to boot!

So how did the shadows stack up??

Monday - MAC Paint Pot, C+
Tuesday - Joe Fresh Cream Eye Shadow, F
Wednesday - Maybelline Tattoo Eye Colour, B
Thursday - MUFE Aqua Cream, B+
Friday - NYX Jumbo Pencil, B+

Not a terrible group - I like to think that I covered various brands and price ranges.

I really did toss the Joe Fresh one, it was an awful experience.

Lets talk costs (also in per gram):

MAC, $21/5g, $4.20/g
Joe Fresh, $6/1.8g, $3.33/g
Maybelline, $6.49/6g, $1.08/g
MUFE, $25/6g, $4.17/g
NYX, $5.99/5g, $1.20g

I really am struggling with picking a clear winner.  In essence there are 4 that I would consistently use.  Noting that primer and a powder shadow on top is a requirement.  But when I look at the pictures, the NYX one looks to be the most intact!

MAC and MUFE would be ones I would buy less often, cost being the main factor.  If I was looking for a less expensive alternative with a colour range I would definitely go with NYX.  But there are a couple of Maybelline shadows I am going back to get.... I can't help it!



  1. Your shadow comparisons are great! Amazing that NYX performed the best. - Sheila, Painted Ladies


I really appreciate you taking time to comment. I read them all.

Thanks ever so much!
