Silk Naturals Chromatic Cream Eye Color Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $4.99 each (4.5 ml full size). Available on the Silk Naturals website.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses

Silk Natural's Chromatic Cream Eye Colors are luminous, well-pigmented, and smudge-proof but not waterproof. 100% naturally derived formula. No parabens, silicones, oils, or petroleum products like isododecane. Travel friendly and no-fall out.

Silica helps absorb excess oil to help keep it crease-free for hours. If you have really oily lids you may still need a separate primer. Vegan and gluten-free. Comes in a lipgloss-like tube with a doe-foot applicator. Shelf life is suggested at 6 months once opened.

Available in 20 shades. I have four shades: Electric, Soho, Tribecca, Gotham (which I'll describe the shades below), but I'd also love to try Marvel, Brighton, Brownstone, Gramercy, and Penthouse.

Shade descriptions of the 4 shades I own:
  • Electric: an incredible vibrant blue color with an almost metallic finish. Makes a great eyeliner too!
  • Soho: a medium taupe shade with very slight glints of gold. It has a full coverage luminous creamy - almost powdery finish. Soho may look too dark when just swatched on your hand, but it's not on the lid - where it brings light and a sexy shimmer to the eyes.
  • Tribecca: a very pale gold with golden interference and a pearl finish. IT's sheer, brightening and makes a gorgeous highlight.
  • Gotham: a deep, dirty grey with a hint of brown shade with a shimmery finish.
These have okay pigmentation on their own - more on the sheer side. You'll want to build them in layers if you want a more intense, opaque color pay off. These colors, once dry, are very stay-put on their own.

Even though these are called cream shadows, I would classify them more as liquid shadows. The product itself has a doe-foot applicator, which I'm not a fan of for cream/liquid type shadows but I know it's the easiest method to application for this style packaging. They're easy to use - I prefer to apply some to my lid and then blend with a brush or my fingers. OR, if using as an eyeliner, I will take a brush directly to the doe-foot applicator and apply in that manner.

The packaging is simple and would be easy to store or take along with you because of their smaller, thin size. The label is really cute - I love the colorfulness of the words against the black background. I did forget to photograph these from the bottom, which allows you to see the color inside.

The shade Electric is a stunning electric blue. If you like vibrant electric blues you MUST own this one!

Gotham and Soho are great everyday neutrals that are that perfect mix between brown, gray and taupe - these two shades are great for daytime or nighttime looks.

The shade Tribecca is a great pale golden shade that is gorgeous on its own, as an inner corner color, or as a highlight shade on top (or underneath) of other shades.

Overall, I really liked all four of these shades and would love to try even more. Would recommend if you like this formula of eyeshadow!

Now let me know what you think...
What do you think of these cream shadows? What shade is your favorite? Did you add any of these shades to your wish list? Discuss in the comments below.


  1. Electric looking sooooo good *.*

  2. I own Gramercy, Tribeca, Sunnyville, and Penthouse. I really like them for lazy days when I still want something on my lids. I like that they are somewhat sheer because when I wear opaque shadows, I feel like I have to wear eye liner or it looks strange. I feel okay with just wearing these with a swipe of mascara.
