My new beauty find - Catrice cream eye shadow

I was walking the other day the aisle in Pennys ( Primark), looking out for a perfect outfit for my Friday night, when this little eye shadow from Catrice picked my interest:
The Made To Stay Long Lasting Eye Shadows in six shades for  for Euro 3.90 each!  I wondered how I didn't see them before, think they are out since late 2011.
Tried all six  shades on the back of my hand and decided to buy the Lord Of The Blingsa metallic golden silver shade.  I mean it was only for Euro 3.90, so could have bought them all, but wanted first to see if I like the texture and the feel of them on my eye.

My verdict so far:
These cream eye shadows are  quite  thick and fairly smooth. They all have either a metallic or very shimmery finish and I find them all somewhat cool in colour. Think you could apply them with your finger, but I would recommend to apply them with a a brush.
 They remind me bit of my beloved Bobbi Brown Long wear eye shadow. Although they are  slightly larger than BB's cream shadows, in jars with wider openings so easier to use; they're nearly identical to Maybelline Color Tattoo jars.
The eye shadow doesn't  smudge and really stayed put all night long, even the next day, after removing all my make up night before!!
This little pot will last a long time, so don't think that I will need to repurchase any time soon. Don't really think that I will repurchase any of the other colours, because the to dark for me and everyone knows that darker colours will make your eyes look smaller, and this is not what I want.  Of this particular shade, I found the metallic effect is not overwhelming, but very elegant and made my eyes really stand out. So all in all, given the price they are really good!

And this is how I wore the Lord Of The Blings:
First I applied MAC cream colour base in pearl. Next I  applied over the half of my lide the Bobbi Brown Long wear eye shadow in  sandy gold . On top of this eye shadow I applied the Lord Of The Blings smudged the two colours together.
I applied  the Lord Of The Blings also on my lower lash line.
I finished the look with the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate Shimmer Inc.  Next I applied two coats of 17 Wild Curls - volume mascara.




I used the following Products for this look:
Step 1: YSL perfect touch foundation 6
Step 2: Lacura concealer pen
Step 3: MAC cream colour base in pearl
Step 4:  Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow - Sand Gold
Step 5: Catrice  Cream eye shadow - Lord Of The Blings
Step 6: Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate Shimmer Inc
Step 7: 17 Wild Curls volume mascara - black
Step 8: MAC blushcreme -  lilicent
Step 9: MAC Plushglass - fullfilled
