Can anyone recommend me a neutral eyeshadow?

I want a cream one so I can apply it with fingers instead of faffing with brushes. Ideally matte as opposed to pearlised or glittery.

The powder one I like is Mac's Orb; I'd like as close a colour match to this as possible.

I tried a Color Tattoo one but couldn't find it in a pale enough shade.

I'd prefer high-street prices but would consider paying up to about Bobbi Brown money. NOT Tom Ford-level prices, although Sali Hughes is so persuasive about their stuff I'm almost tempted!

Bobbin Brown Malted is nice neutral matte.

Thank you! May be a bit dark for me though.

Mac Painterly paint pot. An old reliable.

Benefit Creaseless cream pot in Bikini-tini is my go to for most days and is a great base if you want to apply darker colours over the top.

Bare minerals do cream eye shadows they've already got application brushes in which is the only way you can apply it. They have matte and shimmery finishes. They don't come in round pots like the maybelline colour tattoo. Really easy to apply and there is s good selection of flesh/neutral/base colours to choose from. They're about £ 15-18.

Botanic, is it the Matte Eyeshadow at £15 or the READY Eyeshadow palettes? (they're the only ones I can see on the website).

Mac Pro paint pot in Layin low is really nice,

I use Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow, its brilliant stuff and a great base.

It's the performance one I have it in soft linen and moss green which I use frequently.

I use Chanel in Mirage. It looks a bit glittery in the pot but not at all once it's on. Have a try at the counter.

MAC painterly for me too. Used in a lesson i had by a make up artist, and I have never looked back.

I was looking at these today. Not a decent shade in the entire range!

I loved the Chanel Mirage but it dried out very quickly. KIKO do great cream shadows but only if you have a branch near you. They do have an online shopping service but they ship from Italy and it can take weeks.
