This eye shadow is cream based. It is a double-sided eye shadow. The one I am reviewing is called silver sky. One side has a rounded tip and that is your base that you start with, the other has more of a pointy tip and that one you use above and below your eye to give it a smokeyshadow look. The colors have a subtle shimmer look to them and blend very easily with your finger or applicator. I purchased my first one about a month ago and I found that the step 2 broke off after two uses, so now I have to use a qtip or applicator to put the color on. I decided to try another one, as I really liked the affect that it gave my eyes. However, that one broke as well. I found that it does not last all day and after a short time, it fades in the creases of the eyelid. This eye shadow comes in many colors Silver Sky, Onyx Smoke, Bronze Fire, Citrus Flair, Purple Plume, and Tempest Blue. http://www.covergirl.com
