I don’t remember whose recommendation it was, but I was urged to try the Estee Lauder double wear stay in place shadow creme. I was suspicious, but the result was encouraging. I bought it in a light shade with the idea to use it as a base and place the eye-shadow of choice on top of it. Not a bad idea, but I recommend that you buy the shade you want and wear only it. It really doesn’t clutter as other eye shadows do. Yet, it feels more sticky and heavier at your eye lid than the powder shadows, so beauty does come at a price here. The conclusion? If you are looking for a stay all-day shadow cream, this might well fit the bill. Just bear in mind you’ll have to sacrifice some convenience.
