Hi

I am pale skintone with blondeish/redish hair, green eyes, I'm looking for a cream eyeshadow a slivery colour do you think it'd look ok?
Only thing is I get sensitive eyes and have tried The Body Shop and Rimmel but find they hurt my eye :(

Any ideas appreciated!

    i think it will look fine, i have hear mineral makeup is suited to people with sensitive skin etc, i kno your eyes are not skin but you could give it a try?
    go to boots and ask the ladies working there for advice they b quite helpful to me when i need advice :)
    p.s i have v gorgeous fcuk silver tube of eyeshadow from boots a while ago but they dont do it now..

    Lol, I just checked out 'who's online?' and saw that JsT is reading this thread! That amused me for some reason, I wonder what your thoughts are on cream eye shadow James if you are still reading this?

    Personally I find it goes a bit slimey, I once had one but I prefer a solid one not a liquid one now if I wear one at all!

    I find the creamy eyeshadows are rubbish. Mess about with some good powders they are ten times better - last longer and don't crease or dry in your lid.

    I really dislike cream eyeshadows. I'd never give up my traditional Mac powder eyeshadows, they're fabulous!

    I was thinking about Mac, looking for a neutural/silvery one, a summer one that could be worn on holiday! any ideas? I don't think I have a Mac seller nearby and the internet it is hard to judge colour!

    I cant use crean eyeshadows, it irritate my eyes far too much. Powder eyeshadow is much better and tends to last much longer.

    Do you have LiveJournal? If so, go to http://community.livejournal.com/mac_cosmetics/. It is awesome and they will be able to tell you what is good :). If you don't, then I will ask for you :). Although the colours on the MAC site are actually pretty good. MAC are amaaaazing :heart:. Although if you haven't got one already, you might have to buy an eyeshadow brush too.

    Also - are you sure you don't have a MAC seller nearby? They have them in quite a few department stores. Although I have just seen that the only ones in Scotland are in Edinburgh and Glasgow so nevermind :/.
