After a long winter, Face Stockholm has some beautiful shades to help us welcome Spring and Summer. Soft and sheer pastels look very flattering on the eyes for me, if I’m going to wear them anywhere. Face Stockholm suggests that green eyes try mint, lavender, and blush shades. Blue eyes should try blue, buttercup, and lavender shades. Brown eyes like mine should try lavender, blue and mint.

I’ve rocked all of those colors before, but I wanted to test out the shades they thought would be the most flattering on me, so I tried Kramogonskugga: Crêpe (a shimmer lilac), Kramogonskugga: Nylon ( a shimmer mint), and  ( a shimmer steel). All retail at $24 at Face Stockholm.

I’ve used lots of cream eyeshadows before and wear a cream eyeshadow nearly daily so I was really excited to test these out. So how does it compare? At .14 oz, it is .2 oz smaller than Benefit’s Creasless Cream shadows, and .7 oz smaller than Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream. The jars look teeny tiny so I was kind of surprised that it was within .2 oz of Benefit’s size! The shades are very sheer but have a fair amount of pigment when they are build in layers. They aren’t supposed to crease but they did crease a little bit on me when I built the color up. You can wear eyeshadow over top and use this as a base, which I tried, but I normally prefer using a skin-tone shade when I am using an eyeshadow base.

These are paraben free and waterproof. I did like wearing them but one pass was too sheer for my liking and didn’t show up much on me at all, and a few swipes of color tended to get creasy on me. Still worth a try if you like the shades and are a cream eyeshadow collector like myself!

    That purple is GORGEOUS! I can never seem to find a creme shadow that doesn’t crease though, which makes me so sad because some of the shades are just so gorgeous. I think I just need a better primer 🙂

    Such pretty shades! I find that all cream eyeshadows crease on me (all of them!) but I love using them as bases.

    These look like awesome shades, but I’m not a fan of cream eyeshadows…I try them time and time again because the colors are great, but they always crease and have that cakey look by the end of the day so sadly, they are not one of my go-to items.

    Sadly, I don’t think these will work for me. 🙁 I love the colors, but I have very oily eyelids and if I have to layer it to get color, I’m going to be a creasy mess.
