Not too glitzy, something relatively neutral for daytime. Sensitive pale-ish warm skin. Warm brown eyes and hair. Thinking about Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercia or MAC. Any recommendations? Thank you.

I love the Bobbi Brown ones. Great choice of colours (including lots of lovely neutrals), easy to apply and last well.

Laura Mercier Eye Caviar Sticks are good. The Rosie by Autograph in M&S (gold packaging) are very similar IMO - there are only 4 colours though.

Lancome are also very good - but they dry faster so can be harder to blend than the Laura Mercier ones. Autograph (M&S, black packaging) are very similar. The dark grey colours from both brands are very, very similar.

Chanel and Mac have cream shadows in pots - they are very good too. Chanel are very sparkly though.

Kiko (an affordable Italian brand) have some cream shadows too. I ordered some a few days ago, but haven't received them yet. My experience from testers in the shop is that they are quite sparkly, but that the quality is similar to the other products I've mentioned. They're around £7 and there's currently an offer on the website and in the stores: buy any 3 products and get 3 more free.

Rimmel Scandaleyes are also good. I had the Trespassing Taupe a while back, and I really liked it. It is also very affordable. Boots has a buy 1, get the 2nd half price offer on now and Superdrug and Feelunique have a 3 for 2 offer on now.

Bare Minerals

Lots of lovely neutral colours; Barely Nude and Sweet Spice are ones I use daily.

No sparkle or shimmer in the Bare Minerals ones either and the eyeshadows last for months.

Very helpful.Thanks everyone.

I love the Bare Minerals one too. I've got a neutral to replace my Bobby Brown and I like it much more.

Clarins! One called rosewood is perfect neutral

Is the Clarins one a cream shadow? It sounds good.

Maybelline eye tattoo. I find that most cream eye shadows slide off but nothing is shifting this baby.

Boots No 7 cream shadows aren't bad and they quite often have money off vouchers on them.

AncoraAmarena Tue 29-Mar-16 20:04:30

Are the Maybelline and No 7 ones matt and neutral?

pupsiecola Tue 29-Mar-16 20:30:39

Thanks. I bought a Bobbi Brown one but am going to get a Bare Minerals one too.

The Clarins are called cream-to-powder but they seem more like pressed powder really. They apply very smoothly.
