Main Street Glitz

My thoughts:
As I mentioned in my wet n wild Fantasy Makers post, I have a love/hate relationship with these palettes. They're beautiful, but so incredibly slick and creamy that they crease. There's no way around it...they just crease. However, some can be used as a base to bump up the boldness of an eyeshadow; just use them sparingly. Emphasis on the "sparingly." Alternatively, you can (again) sparingly apply them over eyeshadow for extra sparkle and shine, and also a little more lasting power. These palettes are beautiful for this fall's metallic smokey eye trend.

Least favorite palette: Tinsel Mall...the creams are pretty sheer; not as bold as I would have liked.

Most favorite palette: Main Street Glitz...incredibly pigmented, and out of the four, this one is least likely to crease. The creams are a bit thicker and slightly drier, giving them a touch more staying power.

Ooh they look amazing :)
Out of them all Id want the Main Street Glitz one :) Oh and Twinkle Town :)
I just love the way makeup is packaged over there... here in Finland they are all out in the open.. yes they are safety sealed (some products) but this seems so much better :)

Twnikle town would follow me down to the grave, I'm so weak for those hues! So would you suggest them as primers?
For a while there was all this talk about cream eyeshadows, and I never got the idea of it since they always crease and float around. I think all cream products should be used with a powdery product. Am I the only one??
