Cream eyeshadow is made for the 5-minute effortless makeup look.

When you have to wake up at 6 a.m. on Monday morning, the last leisure you can afford to have is 30 minutes to doll up and make a mess on your makeup table. Thanks to cream eyeshadows, your eyes can look bright and awake in less than 3 minutes. Just swipe the cream and blend with your fingers, apply eyeliner, mascara and you’re done.

Today I would like to review this awesome drugstore cream shadow, Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel Shadow ($7). They come in and some applied sheer, some are opaque. I own 5 of them, and one has hit the bottom of the jar. :p

The good thing about this product is that when the cream dries up (a.k.a separated from the jar), you can simply warm it up with your finger and it will turn creamy again. Also, the plastic jar makes it so much better to carry around. Plus, Color Tattoo makes a great base for powder eyeshadow. It blends really well.

It last about 7 hours on my lid. And yes, they are waterproof and smudge proof. For less than 10 bucks, what’s not to love?

Perhaps the one thing I wish they do is to make the complete shades available in my country, as there are only 5 colours sold in the counters.
