EOTD: Cream shadows and Gel Liners

Trace writes: What I like about some cream (MAC Paint Pots, Shiseido Hydro-Powder) or gel-based makeup (MAC Fluidline, Stila Smudge Pots) today is that they are so long wearing! They adhere to the skin extremely well. 

One day I decided to create a look using only these items in my stash (except for mascara and eyebrow color, of course). This is the finished look:

Items used:
Shiseido Hydro-Powder Eyeshadow in H2 Whitelights
MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque
Stila Smudge Pot in Bronze

Kanebo Kate Gel Eyeliner in GY-1 (pic from Luna Face)
MAC Eyeshadow in Espresso


Bare eyes

Shiseido Hydro-Powder Eyeshadow in H2 Whitelights applied on the inner half of the eye

MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque applied on the outer corners

Stila Bronze Smudge Pot applied on top of Rubenesque and smudged upwards to form an outer V. Messy is good!

Kanebo Kate Gel Liner in GY-1 applied on the lid to deepen the eye.

MAC Fluidline Black Track applied on the upper lid. Shiseido Hydro-powder in White Lights applied on the inner corners to add some oomph to the eye. Brows shaded with MAC Espresso.

Finished with Maybelline mascara! =)

And yes, this look stayed put for 6 hours - no smudging!



  1. I love it Trace! wow it stayed on for 6 hours?! okay talaga yung cream eyeshadows noh coz its long lasting even without primer...

  2. Nice look! Your eyes look really pretty. I love gel liners but I haven't tried using it as eyeshadow because I only have black. :P

  3. khymm - yup, even longer! :) though at 7-8 may slight disappearance of the pigment, not the shimmer though. amazing without primer, and i have extremely oily lids!

    pammy - thanks :) i used my fingers mostly btw, forgot to put that on the post. so easy to do!

  4. I really want to try the Shiseido Hydro Powder Eyeshadow but it's sooo expensive, lol!

  5. Lizz - I was able to get mine at a lower cost online. But that's actually not the shade I want (white lights) - I have been lemming for Glistening Sand forever! But locally, this is PhP 1, 800!! I can't justify a little neutral pot that costly!
