Topshop Nude Eyes cream shadows - the best nude shadows EVER?

I'm a nude shadow obsessive. I cling to my trusty Naked palettes for dear life and there's no such thing as too many brown eye shadows in my book. Enter Topshop's creamy textured Nude Eyes shadows and a whole new level of obsession. If you like nude shades, you NEED these in your life.

Topshop is a brand I think sometimes get overlooked when it comes to makeup. Their own brand stuff is absolutely fantastic quality and at a really reasonable price point. Nude Eyes are a relatively new launch and one I'm hoping they will keep around for some time to come *buys all the back ups just in case*.

Nude Eyes are an edited selection of five taupey/nude shadows that are perfect for every day use. The creamy texture makes them easy to layer up - you can apply lightly for a sheer wash of colour on the lids or add a little more product for a more intense colour.

They blend like a dream, but once they're set, these babies literally do not budge. At all. I'm talking a 16 hour day with no creasing, minimal fading and no need to reapply. And that's without a lid primer. Quite frankly, I'm amazed they haven't sold out already.

Naked for me is a fantastic all over lid shade - it's enough on it's own but could be used with Bare in the outer corner for a subtle nude smokey eye. They basically make you look like you've made an effort with your makeup, without having to spend ages doing it in the morning. Winner!

I've often stuck to powder shadows as creams can tend to be less reliable in terms of longevity and creasing, but trust me when I tell you that these are the best I've tried. Better than ones that cost 3 times the price.

The only *tiny* downside for me is that they are mostly matte formulas (although total bonus if you love matte shadows), so I've been adding a little hint of shimmer to the inner corner of my eye to stop them looking totally flat. Other than that, I have literally nothing bad to say about these. Yes, the pot is quite small (think Bobbi Brown gel liner) but creams have a nasty habit of drying out before you finish them (*shakes fist at Chanel*) so I don't think a smaller size is a bad thing.

Nude Eyes are available from all Topshop makeup stockists, priced £8 each. Do yourself a favour and buy one. Just make sure you save some for me...

Are you a nude shadow fan? Do you like the look of these shadows from Topshop?
