What Kind of Eye Shadow Do You Prefer? Pressed? Loose? Cream?

I don’t know about you, but eye shadows are what gets me really excited about the beauty industry. With all of the pigments and types, you can create such drastically different looks. Yeah, I’m an eye shadow junkie.

While pressed powder eye shadow is the most common, there are actually several types of eye shadow. And that brings me to today’s poll question.

I want to know…

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

My answer: My favorite is pressed powder eye shadow. It’s just what I’m used to and easiest to manipulate and blend.  As you can see from the picture above, it’s also what I have the most of.

As always, I totally want to hear what you have to say in the comments. Let’s bust out a convo!

  1. As long as the color is pigmented and blends well, I don’t care if it comes in pressed or loose form, I love them both equally. It’s just cream eyeshadows that I tend to avoid as they usually crease badly on me.

    • I just can’t get past the messiness of loose pigment, though it’s still decent. I’m with you on cream shadows. Crease city!

  2. I prefer pressed powder even though I accidently clicked Something Else. (my bad!)
    Its just so much easier and you don’t have to worry too much about how much you get onto the brush. Loose powder just goes all over the place and cream is way too complicated for me.

  3. I’m all in with Patricica – and really, for all the same reasons! Guess I’m just in too much of a hurry to deal with anything else, most of the time!
