My daughter got this as a gift when I bought her the iced cocoa one as well, because she liked mine so much. I tried this one too, and I love both the iced cocoa and the apricot twist. They look great together! The iced cocoa is a darker so the apricot twist can be used with it as a highlighting color to really get that extra pop! The cream eyeshadows go on silky smooth, especially with the Mary Kay cream eye shadow brush if you buy it, and they are long lasting pigment that stays put! The apricot twist is a nude light beige with hint of coral color is the best way I can describe it, if that makes any sense. It gives a natural look without being totally oblivious, something I approve of for my teen. Love that they last!

This is my favorite cream eye color that I've tried. It glides on so smoothly and feels so nice on your eyelids. It is very pigmented, but also buildable, so you can get exactly the look that you want. This color is nice because it's natural looking with a shimmer to highlight your eyes. You can apply it with either your finger or with a brush depending on your preference. This eye color stays on all day (especially if you prime your eyes) and you don't get any fall out because it's cream. It looks great with anything you wear and it's perfect for a day look or a night out! I love wearing this, and it was definitely a good purchase.

My rep put some of this on my eyes and I was amazed at how well it held up through the day. It felt pretty thick, though, almost stiff, and I was very aware of its presence.

I decided to try several of the colors, using some as base layers for powder eye color. But I struggled trying to apply it correctly. I used a brush first, as was recommended, but i couldn't get a consistent application. My finger seemed to work best.

My biggest issue, though, was that the colors weren't matte, so not exactly good for everyday use. Despite diligent blending, I just always felt like a drag queen.

Thank goodness for the Mary Kay guarantee.

The cream eye colors are great. I apply using my fingers and still have great control. Glides on well and stays put. For a customer I tested the creasing factor - I very generously and sloppily applied it and by the end of the day it had creased some. That was a hot day and I was outside a lot, so I think that contributed to it. When you apply this product nicely and build it to deepen the color, no issues with creasing at all. This is a great brown/copper color; the picture does not do it justice. Also great for traveling as it's quick to put on and won't break part the way traditional shadows will.

I love all of these cream eye colors, but this particular shade is great on my fair skin to add depth and dimension, and can be applied easily with the brush MK sells for the eye color. It's buildable, from sheer to intense -- which I like because it gives me more options -- and is "gentler" on the eyelid creases that come with sun damage or aging skin. Where powder shadows sometimes emphasize extra creasing, this creamy texture glides over and diminishes creasing.

Cream shadow is my favorite to apply! This color swept me off my feet. Being a independent MUA I have the freedom of experience in many different product brands on a multitude of clients with different ethnic backgrounds. I can use this product with any skin tone! One thing I did have to do was clean my brush between application of each eye as the brush does become a bit tacky during application. Its not a big price to pay considering the outcome.

This is a creme eyeshadow that once it sets it is NOT coming off unless you use makeup remover.. I love this as a quick dash out the door shadow because I know it will last all day and will not budge and it is such a flattering color. I mostly use this however as a base to really build up my shadows so that you can see it from space LOL. I love it so much for that. It will make any shadow stick to it without creasing and intensify the color.

This is one of my go-to shadows and colors when I want a quick, natural look in a hurry. I literally can slap on some CC cream, dab on a little of this eyeshadow, a couple coats of mascara and be done in 3 minutes. The color is buildable to my color preference, the color lasts all day, and I never have any issues with creasing. The color compliments most skin tones and all eye colors. LOVE this shadow and love this color!

This cream eye color is my day to day shadow! It is long lasting and has just enough shine to make my eyes pop. I love that it isn't over the top with shine, so I can wear it anytime! It is a small tub for the cost, but well worth it! I've had mine for almost a year and still have half of it left! I have it in the metallic taupe color which is incredible, too - looks almost purple/silver and is perfect to wear with black!

These are supposed to help prevent creasing (or at least that's my understanding) and even with a primer underneath and powder over the top to set it I'm still a creased up mess in a few hours. This color in particular is pretty but the color payoff isn't that good so you'd have to build it up if you want to use this alone and then you'll end up creasing pretty bad - at least that was my experience.

Also, is this suitable to use as an eyeshadow primer or base underneath liner or other eyeshadow colors?

I am not very fond of this particular color. Does this come in other colors? What are your favorites? Are there any colors that are good to wear if you have green eyes?
