The combination of burgundy and a rich, shimmering brown is one of my favorites. The burgundy keeps things interested, and the combination is insanely flattering–no matter the eye color or season. Alima Pure often nails it with their shades; here are two of my standbys. Merlot eye pencil and shimmering eye shadow in Milan.
The big question with any cream eyeshadow made with clean ingredients is whether or not it'll crease. And yes, this one is not crease-proof, but you'll have much better luck with it if you have drier eyelids, live in an arid climate, don't wear dark eyeliner, layer it with some form of powder and/or stick with the more nude shades.
That said, both these eye products are fantastic to travel with, as they housed in extremely lightweight packaging and no brushes are needed for applying. Ilia Beauty has always satiated my desire for intriguing shades–a void left when I discovered what ingredients were lurking in my beloved NARS products. And the shade selection here certainly doesn't disappoint. The Silken Shadow Sticks come in 6 compelling neutrals (notably including Age Of Consent, And She Was, and End of Days, the latter of is pictured above), and the Pure Eyeliners swivel up to expose a perfectly narrow tip for lining the inner rim, or drawing a cat eye with precision.
