Rave Review: StudioMakeup Smooth Endurance Creme Eyeshadows! (Souffle and Frosted Spice)

Pots of gorgeous creme shadows! Ladies behold your sparkling pretty eyes! These two precious pots of shadows are my latest cream shadows to my collection! I picked this up two months ago in John Little departmental store here in Singapore at Plaza Singapura! This line is being imported and is of a higher end departmental price range. There were 5 shades and I picked these two after much deliberation!

Continue below for the review!
StudioMakeup Smooth Endurance Creme Eyeshadows (shades Souffle and Frosted Spice)
These are highend departmental price at $32.90 SGD a piece!  Maybelline color tattoos sell here from $15.90 and quads at $19.90 SGD! Double the price, I had high expectations!
I realized they were imported by Smoochiezz! This company imports NYX, Elf, Essie and other brands into Singapore!

Packaging & Product!

In a very simple rounded smoothed bottom thick plastic pot, these are actually smaller than the Maybelline color tattoos. I think this product is also much more space efficient, not being bulked up by the packaging. You get a nice big 7 grams of product compared to 4 grams for Maybelline color tattoos. I like the labeling on the bottom too, very clear and precise and since it's not on the cap which can be changed by accident this is good trait.

Imagine touching a gel mousse blob that makes a dense and fluffs up! That's the texture of this product! Extremely soft but not creamy, still firm and a bit bouncy, you just need to tap a dense fiber brush into the product twice or swish it up and down once and you get enough product for one opaque layer or two thin ones!

These shades are incredibly wearable, blendable and are so waterproof that they are perfect for oilier lids and will last all day on the lids without anything else to set them! I love the Maybelline color tattoos and gave them a rave review too but in terms of texture these trumph them as they are so consistent, every shade I swatched in this line has the same super smooth mousse texture and there's absolutely no flaking after applying more than a layer.

The Maybelline CT tended to have flaking after one layer applied on the lids which will leave your eye look patchy! These on the other hand are so even and the five shades in the small selection are super wearable. There's a beige, a bronze, a darker gray and these two which I picked up! All shades are so easy to wear and use!

Using the shade Souffle all over the lid! It's such a beautiful peachy sheen! I love shimmer!

StudioMakeup Smooth Endurance Creme Eyeshadow in SCS 06 Frosted Spice! This looks very greenish in the pot but actually is a very gray taupe!

Got a bit of mascara there on the lid! Eeeks!

Paid: $32.90 SGD or about $26.40 USD (Not exactly affordable but not a shocking price tag here!)

Recommend: Yes! Although these are higher end in price I love and will rave about the amazing texture, lasting power and ease of these gel mousse cream shadows! So long wearing and waterproof, they are so soft and with the right brushes for applying these shadows are a dream!

Repurchase: Yes! The quality is just amazing, the best I've tried so far in terms of cream type products for the eyes!

Bottom line: Rave worthy quality, super waterproof, very wearable shades, these are perfect for flawless single shade eye looks, add a touch of outer corner darkness, a slick of eyeliner and mascara and you're good to kill a day at the office, a day out or a night out!

    1. Aw thanks! I love them like crazy, so easy to wear and use!

  2. I've been loving cream eyeshadow lately! have been lusting over those from chanel as a lot of people say they are great..but they are so expensive T.T
    I haven't heard about the brand btw ; where does it come from? the peachy coral shade is totally my cup of tea!

    1. Same! I love how they look but they are tooo pricey! These are amazing! From the United States I think!

  3. wow!! the price was so expensive!! although the shades and consistency sounds pretty good but I would still go with maybelline's tattoo's instead ~Iam such a cheapskate >_>~

    1. Yes, much pricier than maybelline! However the texture is just incredible, so easy to apply, so easy to blend, so easy to make a flawless look and they are so moussey and smooth! The CT are still great color base! I would recommend them too!

  4. I've never heard of this brand before but it sounds like the formula is just perfect. Worth the splurge in my opinion.
