  4. Thanks for the update on your rotation! I love reading about new products you're discovering. What are your thoughts on the Ellis Faas Creamy eyes? I love the idea that it's shimmer-free, and I'm looking for a natural taupe or light beige colour cream eyeshadow that doesn't crease. But most cream eye shadows crease heavily on me. And how would you compare it to your beloved By Terry Ombre Blackstar?

    1. Hello MG!

      It was my pleasure...thanks for watching ; ) Ah...I think the Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes could be for you. In fact, when I said that they were shimmer-free on my video, you instantly popped into my mind! The #108 could be the light beige you are looking for. I apply on bare lids (no primer) and after a few seconds to let it set, it does not budge nor crease. Truly, it surprised me because the formula doesn't really make any bold claims in this area. It is a bit thicker in texture than the By Terry Ombre Blackstar but not heavy or uncomfortable and, of course, it lacks the shimmer factor. Applied from the brush and then blended with a separate blending brush gave me great, even results. I simply love it and recommend trying a light shade (like #108) to start...I have good feelings about this!
