Silk Naturals Chromatics Cream Eye Colors Review and Swatches

 Silk Naturals Chromatics Cream Eyeshadows Review and Swatches

Silk Naturals recently released their Hot in the City collection and with it Chromatics Cream Eye Colors. Chromatics Cream Eye Colors are a new product that had previously only been seen as a gumball.

Chromatics Cream Eye Colors are luminous, well pigmented, and smudge proof but not waterproof. 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.  It’s simple to remove with just water.  You’ll receive one 4.5 ml tube with a doe foot applicator.  Vegan and Gluten Free

silk naturals, chromatics cream eye colors, ozone, brighton, roxbury, midtown, highrise, Pashmina, Tribeca, sunnyville, grand central, electric, fleet week, Astoria, swatches, reviewRow 1 = ozone – brighton – roxbury – midtown – highrise – Pashmina
Row 2 = Tribeca – sunnyville – grand central – electric – fleet week – Astoria

Ozone
a sheer shimmery silvery tone that makes a great highlight color.  It’s fantastic for brightening your lid, and nearly essential for days when you haven’t had quite enough beauty sleep.  It’s made to compliment Soho, and Gotham- but fun as a wash with just a little black liner.
My Take
sheer silver shimmer

Brighton
a light teal- almost robin’s egg blue with a lustrous pearl finish.  It’s a super fun retro look paired with black liner
My Take
light sky blue

Roxbury
fun teal shimmer
My Take
pretty, green-based teal

Row 2 = Tribeca – sunnyville – grand central – electric – fleet week – Astoria

Midtown
a light yellowish Spring green with a golden pearl finish.
My Take
Pretty, yellow-based light spring green

Highrise
a deeper green that dries down with a dazzling golden overlay.
My Take
Green with a golden sheen

Pashmina
a somewhat sheer ballerina pink with a hint of lavender interference.
My Take
lovely baby pink with blue-violet twinkles

Tribeca
a very pale gold with golden interference and a pearl finish.  It’s sheer, brightening and makes a gorgeous highlight.
My Take
Pale buttery gold

Sunnyville
a medium peach with a luminous pearl finish.  It’s lovely as a one-color wash, and goes great with Tribeca.
My Take
Pastel peach pearl

Grand Central
an opulent gold.  Wonderful as a liner, fun as a lid color, and perfect for adding a touch of flamboyance.
My Take
Perfect, gorgeous, rich yellow gold.

Electric
an incredible vibrant blue color with an almost metallic finish.  If you’re a fan of our Paranormal eye color- this is the cream version.
My Take
Rich, vibrant royal blue

Fleet Week
a dark navy with a slightly shimmery finish.
My Take
Dark navy blue

Astoria
a very light lilac color with a luminous pearl finish.  Apply lightly for a brightening effect, or layer for more intense color.
My Take
Light lilac

Silk Naturals, Metro, Soho, gotham, blackout, Penthouse, Gramercy, Brownstone, swatches, reviewRow 1 = Metro – Soho – gotham – blackout
Row 2 = Penthouse – Gramercy – Brownstone

Metro
a brushed shimmery silver tone with a somewhat sheer luminous shimmer finish.
My Take
Gorgeous midtone silver

Soho
a medium taupe shade with very slight glints of gold.  It has a full coverage luminous creamy- almost powdery finish that’s perfect for daytime office looks.  It’s great by itself, and made to match with Gotham.
My Take
A midtone taupe with hints of coppery-brown

Gotham
a deep, dirty grey with a hint of brown shade with a shimmery finish.  It blends beautifully as a crease color, is a fun liner- and just a gorgeous complex color.
My Take
Deeper than midtone warm grey  with brown around the edges

Blackout
a jet black Chromatic Cream Shadow that dries to a matte almost powdery charcoal color.  It’s fantastic as a liner- just use a brush to grab some off the wand, and apply.
My Take
Deep black matte

Penthouse
a nude tan “your lids but better” shade with a lustrous pearl finish.  It’s just ever so slightly warm, and a great “staple” color.
My Take
Warm tan pearl

Gramercy
a neutral tan punctuated with a hint of interference copper.  It’s a neutral with a hint of excitement.  Perfect for the office, but dressy enough for a night on the town.
My Take
pale copper

Brownstone
a dark coppery golden brown with a shimmery finish- great as a crease or liner color.  It’s similar to Vogue or Chocolate Twinkle
My Take
Deep copper with brown undertones

Silk Naturals Chromatics Cream Eyeshadow Tutorial
Wearing several of the shades here. See the tutorial.

My thoughts
I think if you like cream shadows you will love these for summer. It’s easy to build the color up. It’s a bit tricky to blend the shades together and you have to work quickly to do so. I got 8 to 9 hours of wear with primer. I think if you do not have oily lids you could probably wear these for much longer. If you have very, very oily lids, you may see slight creasing.

You can easily use any of the shades as a liner if you use an angled eyeliner brush to apply the color. I used Blackout like that. I think Gotham will be a nearly universally flattering shade, but I love it especially with my blue-green eyes. I think Electric will look great with brown eyes. Brownstone will look good with green eyes.

The colors are easy to apply and then sheer out with your finger tip or a brush. You can also easily build up color. And of course, you can use these as a base to really make powder eyeshadows pop!

My favorite shades ended up being Gotham, Soho, Metro, Ozone, Grand Central, Tribeca, Electric and Sunnyvale. I really think Ozone and Tribeca are colors that you would use an entire tube up within the 6 month shelf life because they’re easy highlight colors to use every day! They’re great.

I really like the new Chromatics Cream Eye Colors! Have you had a chance to try them?
