My cream eyeshadow phase hasn't ended just yet...
I got these Becca babies at Adora, Greenbelt 5. They retail for Php1,750 (approx. USD40) but they had a promotion wherein selected items had 50% OFF the price, plus a "Buy One Take One" deal. Then I had a store voucher so I only paid Php375 (approx. USD9) for the two cream shadows. I love it when I get great products for cheap! Who doesn't?! :P
I got Graphite - a smoky, shimmery black with violet undertone, and Patina - a rich olive green shade.
Packaging is very luxe and durable, not flimsy at all. The mirror is a nice touch, it makes it more convenient for traveling.
Judging from the pans, I had the impression that Patina will be my favorite out of the two, but when I swatched them Graphite blew me away! Its such a beautiful color, especially for doing smokey eyes or if you want a simple but edgy eyeliner.

Both can be used as eyeshadow and/or as eye liner, I am attracted to cream eyeshadows because they are so easy to blend and application is fool proof, you don't even need a brush, how simple can it get? My only negative comment is they tend to make my eyelids oilier which WILL lead to smudging. ->not pretty. But a good eyeshadow primer can always fix that. ;)
