Cream Color Bases have always intrigued me. I bought one in the shade Luna, because it had such a pretty name. Once I got back home, I couldn’t find it. Several months later, while out shopping with the girls, I bought another one in the shade Shell so I wouldn’t end up with doubles in case Luna turned up and wouldn’t you know it? Shell disappeared as well. Determined to try out any Cream Color Base at this point, it seemed like fate that Stylishly Yours Collection was coming out with a few in pretty shades this time. From the promo pic, I thought I could use these on my eyes to get the same look the model has.
Little did I know that there were certain shades that couldn’t be used on certain areas which is why each Cream Color Base came with it’s own little pamphlet telling you where you were not supposed to use these.
As it turns out, the two I picked up, should not be used on the eyes. They are pretty on the cheeks though.
Movie Star Red is described as medium toned blue red with a cream finish. Virgin Isle is described as a vivid bright coral with a cream finish. I’ve swatched Movie Star Red on top and Virgin Isle on the bottom and blended them out in the last few photos. I love these for summer because they are fuss-free and legit stain your cheek so you don’t have to worry about reapplying. If you like the whole matchy-matchy look, you can even use Virgin Isle on both your cheeks and lips. Nyx has cream blushes in similar shades as well but those feel sticker and less creamy than the ones from MAC.
