Creme eyeshadow applicators

I love creme eyeshadow. I have some that come in sticks, which makes it easy to apply, but I have a hard time with the ones that aren't, such as Revlons creme eyeshadows. They don't come with an applicator, and I end up using my fingers to apply. It works ok, but I prefer to have some sort of applicator. Is there a brush that works well for that, cause I have never seen a creme eyeshadow brush. Any suggestions, TIA!

Re: Creme eyeshadow applicators

Because cream shadows are...creamy, you really need a synthetic brush to apply them. A natural hair brush will grab to much of the shadow & it will not apply with as much intensity. I would suggest trying a brush designed for concealer. Da Vinci (promakeupbrush.com) makes some pretty great brush and they always seem to be on sale. Then you can always blending the edges with a soft shadow blending brush, a Q-Tip or your fingers! Good luck and let me know what you think! Cheers!

Re: Creme eyeshadow applicators

Thanks for the tips guys! The Revlon eyeshadows are my fave. We don't have e.l.f. products where I live, so for now I will be trying out my concealer brush. I don't use it anyway.

Creme eyeshadow applicators

Love the tips about the creme eyeshadow applicators, brushes, etc.!  Do you gals have a hard time with the creme shadows creasing?  I stay away from creme shadows because they always crease on me.  I just tried the Covergirl ShadowBlast ones, and I had the same problem (even after first using a setting powder as a base).  Frustrating!

Re: Creme eyeshadow applicators

as far as the creme shadows creasing, it can be a problem. I would suggest trying a eye shadow primer opposed to just a setting powder. 

a fabulous one is Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and eyen a light dusting of a similar shadow color (or a colorless loose, I like Youngbloods HD Powder, Makeup Forever HD Powder is second runner up) on top of the creme.

great creme shadows & primers

i love creme shadows and have tried just about everything looking for one that doesn't crease. i have the same issue some of you mentioned, they look great when i first put them on and then they cake and get goopy. benefit's creaseless creme shadows are AMAZING i can't rave about them enough. i apply them with a flat brush to layer on color and blend out with a fluffy one. they stay on forever and look amazing! 

also, for creme shadows i tend to use a creamy primer instead of a powder one. urban decay's eyedshadow primer potion works wonders.

Cream shadows that don't crease

I've always had the same issue with cream shadows creasing -- not all but a lot of them. I recently discovered a creamy stick shadow that is honestly the best one I've ever tried (and I've tried a gazillion). It's brand spankin' new too. It's the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil. It's a similar formula to their 24/7 eyeliner, but in a chubby pencil version. AND you can buy a synthetic brush that is designed to work with them, and it's amazing too. You can actually use that brush with ANY cream shadow. It blends creamy formulas perfectly. Love, love.
