Estee Lauder’s Double Wear cream shadow in Pink Blush (01)

I picked up several Double Wear cream shadows at a CCO about six months ago. Good thing, as it turns out, because the cream shadows were discontinued and replaced with something else, that doesn't last as long, and costs much more.

At any rate - this is a great color and finish. It's a pinked coral matte, similar to a few other cream shadows I have but not exactly the same. The consistency is similar to MAC's Soft Ochre and Painterly, and the color is just barely deeper than Painterly so it nicely emphasizes blue or brown eyes.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeliner tube or pencil barrel; top right, the eyeliner applied over bare skin, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the eyeliner applied on the eyelid at the lash line.

My only problem with this is that, when applying, matte cream shadows tend to clump around my lashes a bit more. I need a bit more cleanup before I can apply mascara - and even then, I don't get all the bits.
