Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono Cream Eye Colour are a new range of permanent cream eyeshadows that launches this past Fall which intrigued me. I happen to really like cream shadows because they are so no nonsense for quick eye looks plus they always look like you spent hours applying them when in fact you spend like 30 seconds applying them.
Thing is the Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono Cream Eye Colour formula doesn’t come cheap These bad boys will set you back $36 per shade, are they worth it?
Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono Cream Eye Colour is one of those really easy to apply formulas that looks incredibly smooth and perfect no matter how little time you take applying. You just can’t screw these up and that’s something you really have to love about the formula.
Each shadow comes housed in an elegant glass jar with a gold cap. It’s a very simple yet chic packaging that isn’t too flashy. From what I’ve seen of the shades they are all really wearable and should work for many different skin tones. The very nice part about them is they are idea for aging eyes. So if you have drier eyes, finer lines, or even crepiness this is a formula that will work for you. The texture in the jar looks very dense but once you swipe it you’ll find it’s quite soft. I applied with my trusty Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Brush as these aren’t something you’ll want to dip into with a finger. The formula blends like a dream. No heaviness, not too creamy, not too rich but a nice thin texture that feels very silky as you apply. They smooth on so easily without tugging. Honestly, I felt like I didn’t even have to do much of anything…it practically applies itself! I noticed it doesn’t set too quickly nor does it stay creamy for too long…it meets somewhere in the middle giving you plenty of time to play between it finally dries down. On the dry down I’d say it looks more like a powder than a cream. The color is softly focused with a sheer yet pretty tinted finish. I only purchased one shade which was Desert which in the jar is a sandy dune color but applies goes a bit darker and taupe-ish. The wear went well for me and didn’t fade or crease for a solid nine hours and removed easily at the end of my night.
