I find that this cream shadow is one of the better that you can find at the drugstore. This cream shadow is easy to dispense, since the tube design gives a lot of control as to how much product  you squeeze out ( no overdone messes). A little bit of this product goes a long way because the pigmentation is very good. This product applies smoothly and evenly and is fairly creamy when it comes to texture. This shadow stands the test of time very well, it does not fade, flake or migrate. I do find there is a slight bit of creasing throughout the day, but it is a easy fix, whether you smooth it out or set it with a powder shadow. 
PROS: Packing allows for precision dispensing, creamy and easy to apply, shade range is nice, wears well, fragrance free

Review for: Cupid Glaze
This is a cool product and am pleasantly surprised! I was hesitant that a cream to powder would not crease or fade or be pigmented but it’s so good! I love Cupid Glaze, it’s a flattering and versatile shade that can be combined with other shades and powder shadows in crease or outer corner etc. This is great for all day or in a warmer climate, by the pool etc because of the staying power. I will purchase another colour for my collection. ALMAY Velvet Foil Cream Shadow

I purchased this product to serve as my everyday to-go eyeshadow and this works perfectly! It lasts all day with no fallout, and I love how easy it is to apply .A little does go a long way so truly economical in my mind. And after a recent ten hour day at work--still no creasing and looking great. I have only one color, but I plan to buy more. They work as a fun base for powders as well.

Review for: Cupid Glaze
This is an affordable, decent cream shadow. If I could give it 3.5 stars, I would. There a just a couple of cons holding it back from greatness: 1. It separates in the tube sometimes and comes out watery/globby and needs to be remixed. 2. The pigmentation isn't super-intense. This may be a "pro" for some, but trust that they are no dupe for the old MAC Paints in the metal tubes. This product applies easily enough and LASTS, especially if used as a base for powder shadows. I will probably repurchase at some point, but the color selection is limited and only includes metallic shimmers. Would love to see some creamy satin and matte options.

Easy cream application. Beautiful color and shimmery glitter wash without being too overbearing. Can use a smaller amount for a more subtle look. A true pink, more than I was expecting or usually go for, but find it is flattering on blue eyes. Really love how it catches the light. Appreciate how easy it is to open the cap on the tube. Most importantly, everything creases on me but this product does NOT! It makes me feel effortlessly pretty; it’s hard not to read for it daily.

Review for: End Game, Cupid Glaze, Golden Vibes, Violet Eyelet, Out of the Woods, Paradise Found
I’m in love! I bought two of these first and tried one and I was so surprised how easy they were to apply and how they didn’t feel to heavy and crunchy after they dried down. I went to cvs the next day and bought them all to try out. Now I will say some a more glittery than others. Also there is two shades that seem like their packaging should be switched. WARNING: DO NOT EXPECT THE COLOR OF THE PRODUCT TO BE THE COLOR OF THE PACKAGING. The two colors as ruby glam and violet eyelet. There is one color I do not like so much and it is Astro girl. I expected it to be a nice frosty whiteish color and it’s just not there. I do want to try it tho on top of the others and see if maybe it will look good? All of the colors seem to be pretty pigmented but I noticed that lunar disco and ruby glam seem to be a little streaky. The pigment itself is pretty long lasting but I noticed that the shimmer or glitter used transfers and gets everywhere. I would also say that some are more metallic than others and some are matte once the glitter disappears. I didn’t wear a shadow primer with one and I haven’t noticed any creasing. They also are build able. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. You do not have to use a lot of product for these. Swatches on my arm after an hour. From left to right: lunar disco. Cupid glaze. Violet eyelet. Ruby glam. Astro girl. Golden vibes. End game.

Review for: Violet Eyelet
Almay Velvet Foil™ Cream Shadow is perfect for when you want a simple wash of color over your lids. The key is to apply with your finger and blend edges out with a brush if desired. Applying with too heavy of a hand can cause flaking. It does not budge, making it ideal for warmer months. I’ve been happy with this eyeshadow!

Review for: Violet Eyelet, End Game
If you have oily lids (like me) and want an all over lid shade, definietly give these Almay Velvet Foil cream shadows a try. A thin layer is really the best way to go so it dries down. If you use too much or try to build it up before the first layer is dry it will probably be a goopy mess Once dried down these will last for HOURS without any fading creasing or crumbling, and on my lids that damn near a miracle Only took off one star because they are very drying on the lids and so emphasize lines, but they are lightweight and once it sets I dont feel it at all on my lids. They are also perfect for travel because they are so small and last so long on the lids.
