These cream/gel eye shadow formulas have the look of leather that glide on without creasing and keeps color vibrant. What I love about these is that they are also versatile. They are perfect as a sheer base for shadows (and the different colors allow you to coordinate, or mix with colors), or you can build the color to very high intensity on its own. Perfect to just wrap up and drop in the stocking!
