MAC website decribes this as “Versatile and multi-purpose, Cream Colour Base can be applied directly to bare skin, or layered over foundation, moisturizer, or powder. Apply with a brush, sponge, or fingers. Colour effects range from a light veil to highly dramatic, depending on method of application. Fragrance-free. (The following shades are not recommended for use in lip area: Fawntastic and Black”..

If you think the other cream eyeshadow bases do not work for you, think twice before purchasing this! This is probably the worst kind of eyeshadow base I have used! CCB in black is an extremely creamy (almost like a thick moisturizer/cream kind) eyeshadow base.. It swatches beautifully as seen below but creases almost immediately!! I absolutely hate it for the eyelid area… The only day I take them out is Halloween for crazy looks!! lol.. It might also work on photo shoots where its possible to touch up constantly.. I will not recommend these..

MAC describes this product as “A high performance eye shadow product which goes on creamy; dries to a powdery finish. Made with concentrated pearl pigments in a cream colour formulation, allows for easy application, blendability, and flexibility of coverage. Creates a smooth, crease-free, slightly shiny, reflective look to the lid.”

These are very smooth to apply and the color range is quite good for a natural look.. but again, these tend to crease on me after a few hours.. So, I prefer using them with an eye primer..
