Krämögonskugga cream shadows are the most long wearing, waterproof creams I’ve ever worn and I’ve worn a lot of brands! When they featured their newest shades in Mohair and Flannel I couldn’t wait to get those and happily they were sent for review.
I’m crazy about these. I apply them with a fluffy brush and smooth them out with my fingers and the brush. There’s no primer needed where I apply them since they don’t crease on me or fade. They stay true from morning to late night. While these are highly pigmented you can easily control the intensity of them since they are buildable and quite easy to blend.
The jars are quite small but you use so little of the product that they’ll last forever. I have some from 2 years ago that are still as smooth and easy to apply as these newer ones.
MOHAIR surprised me when I went to swatch and wear. It’s so much prettier on than it looked in the pot. It’s a lightly shimmered golden bronze. Since these layer well I’ll wear it in the crease with a powder highlighter shadow and a complementary lid shade. It can also be worn in the crease with Flannel on the lid for a very striking look.
FLANNEL is also lightly shimmered but not metallic like Mohair. It’s a beautiful forest green. Face Stockholm mentions layering these shadows under powder shadows but I also like them on top of a powder. Flannel is too dark for me to wear as a base shade although if I layer a black powder over it creates a very hot smokey eye.
Whether you like to be enveloped in mohair or flannel you’ll surely find these shadows to be the stuff that dreams are made of. — Marcia
