Metallic Creme Eye Colours are not new, but I was curious, so I had to test them out. These cream shadows are purportedly waterproof, good alone or as a base under other eyeshadow. (Using a metallic base would help the powder shadow pop.)
The makeup artist at the LM counter was a little horrified that I’d applied these to my arm so heavily (q-tips were probably the wrong application tool). He recommended applying with a flat, synthetic brush, and said (when applied correctly) that they were sheer but buildable — and mixable, if you cared to create your own custom color. Metallic Creme Eye Colours are $22 each.
