I purchased the 45 Bold Gold and the 30 Pomegranate Punk
I love the packaging! They are so pretty and look high-end. They are in a little glass pot with a twist top lid.
I don't use a brush to apply the color, I use my finger, because it warms it up and spreading it with my finger is the best way to go about using it.
Now.... the downsides.......
The formula is REALLY DRY. When I first opened these up, the formula was spreadable enough, but as time has gone on (only a couple months) they have seemed to get drier and drier. I have to press down into it pretty hard to get to a softer portion of it to get enough on my finger to use. That is what you get with some cheap products. There are some products that are definitely worth paying the little extra cash for.
I have played around with Shiseido's and Lancome's cream eyeshadows, and they are truly amazing and stay really soft and supple to work with. The texture is AMAZING and the colors are even more amazing! Lancome has some of the most incredible colors I have seen in cream eyeshadows, and Shiseido has the best pigments with slight shimmer.
The Maybelline cream eyeshadows are not really blendable, so if you make a mistake, you almost have to wipe it off and start again.
All-in-all, the Maybelline cream shadows are decent. I don't think I will be purchasing them again. I will pay the extra to purchase one from Shiseido or Lancome next time.
