B. Stunning Vibrant Eye Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow in Golden Sand

The B. Stunning Vibrant Eye Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow in Golden Sand is the just one of the cream shadow offerings from B. The range is exclusive to Superdurg store, and from what I can tell it's essentially going to be something like No7 for Boots. 

They have a great skincare range with something for almost everyone (maybe not acne prone skin) and they have a makeup range. The prices are pretty reasonable and the quality is pretty great too. I've raved about almost every B. product I've tried (examples here and here) because I'm pretty impressed with the brand. 

They kindly offered to send me a few bits after my B. Cheeky Blusher ran out, and the Cream Shadow in Golden Sand was one of the items I got to try. I had already tried on the the cream shadows (bittersweet) and was excited to try a lighter shade for more everyday wear. 

Sadly, this one isn't as fabulous as the darker shade but it's still a nice base for shadows. I wouldn't use this alone, because it applies as more like a creamy shimmer/glitter rather than an actually shade. It is very similar to the Eternal Gold Colour Tattoo, so if you own that I would say try a different colour of these. 

The formulation of these cream eyeshadows are great, it's just the pigmentation of this shade that lets it down. These are great at holding other shadows on top of them, and they don't crease on me at all. It's easily blendable over the lid, despite the lack of pigmentation. 

I have used this as an inner corner highlight, and because of the shimmer/glitter in the cream it works really well. It lasts ages on the tear duct, and doesn't irritate my eyes like a powder shadow can if I put it there. 

You can pick these up online or in store for just £6.99 a pot here. They are slightly more expensive that the adored Colour Tattoo Eyeshadows, but they do have some unique shades that Maybelline don't offer so I would pay the extra £2. Bittersweet is a favourite of mine, and I would recommend checking that out if you get a chance. 
I've heard so many rumors about GFC going away, so maybe pop over to bloglovin and give me a follow there to keep up to date with my blog.

    1. Really is pretty but love the shade bitter sweet even more! the darker shades are less patchy and more opaque.
