At a super budget-friendly price of £6.90 the Cream Crush Eyeshadow range is a new range of bold, bright and buildable cream eyeshadows with a long-lasting formula packed full of intense pigment for great colour pay-off. Suitable for use alone or as a base for powder shadows, the shades range from subtle neutral nudes and pinks, to bold greens and teals, smoky greys and daring golds. There's a shade for any taste, all presented in clear glass pots with black plastic screw top lids simply designed with the KIKO logo. Even better? They can be used for a pop of colour when applied as an eye liner! 

14 Pearly Electric Blue is exactly that, a pearlescent electric blue that's so beautiful and intense, this is definitely one for a vivid pop of colour. 16 Pearly Emerald is more on the glittery side than pearlescent, a lovely emerald green that's not too bright and has a definite marine look to it - but I do find this one has a bit too much glitter for my taste. 

The texture of these shadows is very different to other cream eyeshadows I have tried. It's very soft and light-weight, almost bouncy to the touch which reminds me of whipped products. This is a positive and negative for me; I find them a lot easier to apply and blend than a lot of high-end cream eyeshadows, but I also find they don't hold and last as long for that same reason. I manage to get about 6 hours wear out of the KIKO Cream Crush Eyeshadows before they start creasing and fading, but for £6.90 each that's still pretty darn good!

They're not my favourite cream eyeshadows unfortunately, but I do think the price and shade range is really fab so a great option for those on a high-street budget.
