Long lasting eye shadow

Any recommendations for long lasting, non creasing eye shadow/cream?

My eyelids seem to just absorb eyeshadow, I am yet to find one that lasts more than a couple of hours!

Mac - they are expensive but they last ages because one application lasts all day.

You need an eyelid primer. Urban decay do a good one or I also like the Laura Mercier one. The Nars one gets good reviews but I've never tried it.

I just bought the new Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr eyeshadow for my DDs birthday. She has used them a few times since and they look amazing!

Will be buying some for myself next time I'm in town. There's on 3 fir 2 offer at Superdrug too.

I use the NYX primer followed by the base for powder shadows. The first is in a white tube, the second is in the black tube. I also have the colour tattoo eye shadows, brilliant but they dry up quickly - and I'm fanatical about putting the lids on. Cat2 is inquisitive!

Maybelline one is doing well. Been on since 8am and only just starting to crease and dissolve a bit. Thanks for the recommendation!

Mac. You'd survive a hurricane and still have your eyeshadow on. And they are pigment heavy so a little goes a long way.

I agree with using an eyeshadow primer, I have super oily lids so I get creases from any brand within a couple of hours but with urban decay primer potion under it will last until the next day (as I tested a few times in my youth!)

You can then use pretty much any eyeshadow I used to use cheap W7 glitter dust eyeshadows and they would look good all day

Agree with maybelline colour tattoo. It's the best eye shadow I've ever used for non creasing.

I have very oily lids too and the urban decay primer didn't really work with me. The only eyeshadow I find stays on is the Bobbi Brown cream shadows in little pots. I apply it with a brush, after just my usual primer, and it lasts all day. Doesn't budge! I'm going to check out the maybelline colour tattoo based on the recommendations above.

Just ordered the UD primer so will see if that does anything for me.

I always use Urban Decay and, with or without primer, it doesn't move.
(I never remember to take my make-up off after a night out either and it's always still in place in the morning!)

You can apply powder eyeshadows on top of the Maybelline tattoos, and they will act as a primer. I like Creamy Beige (very similar to Mac Groundwork) or Barely Branded for this.

I also love Bobbi Brown's cream shadows, both in the wee pot and the stick format, but they are fairly pricey.

The Nars eyeshadow primer is the best one in my opinion - I put it on at 6.30am and my makeup's still going strong in the evening. The UD one creased horribly on me, worse than wearing eye makeup with no primer.

Yy to Maybelline colour tattoo - it's excellent stuff! I also have two of the Collection eyeshadow palettes which are really good and amazing value for money.

If you have a Kiko in your area, the eye primer from there is good!

checks out the maybelline....

But which colour ????????

mumsnit Sun 18-Dec-16 16:54:44

I have the Bronze one - really glittery, pigmented colour!
