Here is a post dedicated to my fellow oily eyelid readers! Most makeup is a struggle for us, but I find that finding a good eyeshadow base is particularly difficult. Eyeshadows crease, slide off or just look down right awful. Over the years, I’ve found these Ultimate Eyeshadow Bases For Oily Eyelids so today I am sharing them with you.

Laura Mercier Caviar Eyeshadow Sticks in Copper, Amethyst & Moonlight
First up are the Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Sticks*. Out of today’s bunch, these are probably my favourite. I won a collection of the small size caviar eye sticks and I think since I received these, I’ve barely used anything else. These glide onto the lids so effortlessly, are so pigmented, make my eyeshadows pop AND they don’t crease. So many positives all in the one product. If you’d like to see my initial review post, you can read that here.
Next up are my previous holy grails, Maybelline Colour Tattoos. These are affordable, accessible, come in a range of colours and they are mighty fine for ‘drugstore’. The longevity is pretty decent and I only notice slight creasing probably 4-5 hours later. My ultimate favourite is Bad to The Bronze. It’s a gorgeous shade that I sometimes use on its own all over the lid, with just a teeny bit of bronzer in my crease.
Lastly are the Covergirl Bombshell Shine Shadows*. These are probably the most pigmented of the bunch. They are a liquid consistency and a little goes a very, very long way. I’ve got these shine shadows in three colours and they’re all gorgeous. Little creasing and also very affordable.
