Review // Illamasqua Cream Eyeshadow in Thief

Illamasqua Cream Eyeshadow - £5.00
If you read my post about the Illamasqua sale then you would know that I bought the Cream Eyeshadow in Thief and a Nail Varnish in Snap, which I have reviewed here, for £5 each.

I was looking through the colours of the Cream Eyeshadows on the website and decided on Thief, a colour that can't decide whether it's going to be a dark grey or a dark brown. In the pan it looks incredibly grey, however when swatched it comes out as a dark brown. I had to use quite a bit of Thief to be able to get an opaque colour, or perhaps to get a colour that I actually liked. I really thought I was going to like this colour but I'm still a bit unsure about it. It looks a bit too dull for me, I think.

This product is incredibly easy to apply to the eyelids as it is incredibly creamy. I used my fingers when applying this as I could pick up the right amount of eyeshadow with my fingers rather than with a brush. When I first used this I wore it on its own and it creased quite quickly, so the next day I used it as a base and it worked wonderfully with a brown powder eyeshadow from L'oreal. I most definitely prefer this colour when paired with another colour - a colour with a bit of sparkle to it, otherwise I think it makes me look like I have a bit of a black eye.

All in all, I do like this eyeshadow but I don't love it. Would I have paid the full price (£15.50) for it? Most definitely not but it's nice enough. These Cream Eyeshadows are available in 11 different colours.
