Rated 4.0 out of 5 stars
I love this! I received it as a Diamond Perk, so TY Ulta, this is amazing. Ok. So let's clear up some of the nonsense going on in some of these reviews. This is a GREAT cream shadow. It's crazy lightweight and easy to blend, even easier to build. Super long lasting. The little glass pot has .19oz of product (even tho the site description says .11oz). For comparison, Nyx Foil cream e/s has .07oz, Tarte Chrome Paint Pots have .11oz., and Mac Pro Paint Pots have .17oz. So for those claiming Lorac has only a small amount of product, pls have all the seats. What it DOES have is a small footprint, so reviewers may be having a knee-jerk reaction to Lorac's responsible and less wasteful packaging over some other brands (looking at you, Tarte). The packaging is glass, and sturdy, and closes nice and tight.
I chose the Velvet shade as my Perks gift, and it's a lovely cool-to-neutral toned medium depth brown. I've been using it on my bottom lash line on top of darker eyeliners, as well as deepening my outer V. It's insanely easy to blend and build, and I had to be careful bc I'm used to other creams that take more work to build evenly or diffuse, and this one does it all so easily and seamlessly, I couldn't believe it. The huge drawback is its 4 month shelf life (per packaging). This little pot has so much product, that it'll be a challenge to use it all up in that time frame. I hope Lorac rethinks this and adds whatever it needs to to the formulation to extend its rec'd shelf life, or puts out smaller amounts of product that can be used up in that time. It's overall the best cream shadow in the game. I've love to see them extend the color range bc it's truly an amazing eyeshadow. < 3
I normally love LORAC products, I own all the pro palettes. I also know that they haven't been on the radar lately with new releases. However, when I saw they came out with these I was excited to say the least. I ordered all 6! When I opened the jars I first noticied the size of the glass versus the actual product amount. There is very little product in these! Then as I opened the jars I noticed that as soon as I did the product just came out of the jar in a small condensed pellet, not adhering the the sides of the jar at all. I pushed the pellet thats maybe the size of a quarter back in and against the sides. While I did this, I lost product on my fingers. The colors are ok but its really just color with microfine silver glitter in it. The jar says expiry date after 4 months as well. I'm super annoyed that I spent this much on products that've had all these issues. If you can get past all of the above issues, go ahead. I think ill buy some mixing medium solution to try fix the dryness/crumbliness. I'm only giving one star for brand nostalgia and color choice.

Received an old, dried and cracked product. The shimmer is pretty but if it werent for the discounted price I would definitely be returning.
Claudia from Fairfield
received what appears to be an old product, dry and cracked. Very disappointing to receive an expensive product thinking it was high quality. Returning asap.
Clody from Fairfield
Received dry cracked product for both shades that i purchased. Terrible doe the price. Product appears to be old.

I love this cream eyeshadow. When it arrived, it was crumbled within the jar, but it doesn't make the shadow less useable. I can still apply the shadow with a brush or my finger, both blends really well. It stays on my hooded mature eyes well. I am very happy with this purchase. The only drawback is the short expire.

the color was beautiful, I had gotten the shade velvet, but when I opened it up the product was dried out and it fell right out of the jar when I tried turning it upside down.

This came cracked and kinda dry. But, that being said…. It applied beautifully. Gorgeous lasting color.
Colleen MK from Elmira NY
They all creased on my lid no matter what primer and then eventually dried out.
PPP from Buffalo, NY
This eyeshadow goes on great and last throughout the day. I love the color and the shimmer.

This was my second purchase of the shadow and I don't know what happened. This came dried out and worthless. The first time I loved the color but it would become powder like and needed to be pressed against the sides to become a solid again. Whenit worked the color was great with the perfect amount of shimmer.

This is really pretty, only knocked off a star for the pricing. Creates a very nice wet looking eyeshadow look. Very shimmery

The negative comments here are sadly all true. This eyeshadow is not creamy at all. It's a very dry powder that arrives broken up and 'shrunken' inside the container. I ordered Cashmere, expecting a true platinum color. Instead, the powder is pure gold glitter (VERY shiny). I'm disappointed in Lorac's unexpected low quality and Ulta's way-off description of this.

These are okay, I think they are a bit to shiny for me, but would def look great on other people for sure.

Very vibrant colors and I love the gold one. However It is really soft and buttery and It will crack when traveling. It does have a 6 month life span after using.

A soul outlet amazing the glitter inside is so tiny it doesn't look fake and it goes on very easily!!

Similar feel to BB stick. But in a tub and need a brush or finger to apply similar to BB. I think the tub is good but also harder to apply quickly. Unless using finger and finger is CLEAN! But if not it is not the best for someone on the go.

Im a lover of creme eyeshadows on the days I want to look glam but want little effort put into my look. And this product right here has stolen the show! Its always front in center for an easy but glam eye look. It blends super well and stays on all days

Very soft and easy to brush on. It's not hard on my skin. Barely felt anything on my eyelids. I liked the feel of it.

The lorac lux diamond metallic creme eye shadow is amazing. The packaging is so handy and it keeps everything neat. I would improve this product by coming in a variety of colors to match peoples eye colors. However, i would still recommend this item to anyone looking for a good cream eye shadow.

This palette is bold! If you want to go out and bring attention to your eyes and pull off a glam look, this is the best eye shadow for a night out !

My go to shadow. This is my everyday and I constantly get compliments!!! It is the very best and wears great
ashleyy44 from undisclosed
I use this for a highlighter sometimes lol. I have found that lots of times, the cream shadows that are nudes with just the right amount of shine are perfect for a little highlight. And it last so much longer than regular powder highlighter

bby_kk from undisclosed

Just tried out this product, I've never been good on putting on eyeshadow so I figured I'd try this gel kind. I use my fingertips and blended the shades out how they should be placed. I think the eyeshadow looks pretty great and was pretty easy to apply! Not sure how long this will last throughout the day but with a good primer it should have a good start. The package is a little smaller than I initially thought, but it's great for practicing!
