Banila Co Eye Love Cream Shadow

I pass most cream shadows as a majority of them suck and are more tricky to apply than powders.
A good cream shadow has to dry down to a powdery budge-proof finish for me or it's useless as it will crease.

My favorite cream shadows are Shiseido's Hydro-Powders and PN Sparkling Eyes. All of them dry down and don't crease on me.
Other good cream shadows (in tubes with doe-foot applicators) are Esprique Precious' Glamorous Glossy Eyes, the dual-ended ones from Sonia Rykiel and Visee Aqua Shining Eyes.

I wasn't really intending to get an Eye Love Cream Shadow from Banila Co as I had no idea what the formula would be like.
But I spotted a gorgeous cool grayed taupe (#04 Chaos) so I decided to give it a try.

I am SO glad I got it! It's the most gorgeous metallic cool gray-taupes (it's more gray than taupe) ever! And best of all it doesn't crease at all on me!

It's a very intense metallic color and spreads easily. The texture is rather hard and slightly sticky but one swipe with my finger will show intense color and 2 layers on my eyes are enough for shiny gray-taupe eyes.
Once the color is applied and set (after about a minute or less) it doesn't smudge or budge at all.
I wore this for about 10 hours today and still there is no sign of fading or creasing.
I pair this with a highlighter like
Vidi Vici's Highlight pots (they retail for much more but are useless for wearing all over the lid as they crease!) or any pale powder shadow.

I am actually considering getting a back-up of this. There are 3 more colors available and one or another might end up in my stash soon =P
RRP is 8000 Won (about US$8) so the Eye Love Cream Shadows are a steal if you can get them at retail price! (I paid US$13 or so, and it's sooooooo worth it!)

Banila Co has proven once a gain that it's one of the best highest-quality Korean brands I tried so far!
