Yes, Mine does too. I have tried over the years different tricks and different eyeshadows.

As of right now, the best is MAC eyeshadows. They actually stay in place all day. I apply at around 7;30 in the morning and I do not see a crease until about 6 that evening.

I love this eyeshadow. It can be a little pricey but it lasts along time.

Check out their wesite. You can purchase it there.

I have to agree--MAC eyeshadow is among the most pigmented and lasts a heck of a long time. Also, matte shades almost always wear longer than shimmery ones. Check out epinions.com--they have tons and tons of indepth reviews of every cosmetic available.

I have only recently tried Mary Kay products for the first time after meeting a nice seller on my morning railroad commute. I bought a bunch of eyeshadows after falling in love with the promotional materials (they have all of these lovely models and they describe in detail the makeup schemes that appear in the booklet).

Though a bit pricey, I have to say that these are the very nicest shadows I've ever used. Even nicer than the even more expensive Lancome! These are the only shadows that don't crease up on me, even with my twelve hour days. Amazing!

If you cannot find a seller, I have a great one who will fast ship to US destinations for FREE. If anyone is interested, bmail me.

I used to have the same problem with my eye makeup. My eyeshadow would crease and change to a slightly different color because of the oil, and my eyeliner would fade and smudge. Then I realized the key was to use a base under eye makeup. I've used both foundation and concealer, sometimes combined with poweder, as long as it's close to the color of your skin and is oil-free. Check the ingredients and make sure there is no oil, or look on the package and see if it says "oil-free"- I've found that most products make a point of stating they are oil-free if they are. If you have to look in the list of ingredients to check, you will probably see some kind of oil in the list. I use my Clinque Almost Makeup right now, which is a light coverage foundation that I don't really use anymore, but it makes a great eye makeup base. For extra insurance, you can put powder over the foundation/concealer before applying your eye colors. If you use loose powder to finish you entire look, brush some lightly on your lids to help seal in the color even more.

There are some products that are specifically formulated to go on the eyelid prior to putting on eyeshadow and they will absolutely prevent creasing. My eyelids are really oily but this seems to solve the problem. Revlon makes one but it is sort of hard to find. Merle Norman Cosmetics makes one too. It is my favorite.

I found that loose powder eyeshadows work better for me, because they don't contain as much oils as compact shadows.

I have been using bare mineral makeup eyeshadows and they've been great for me - no more stinging contact lenses!

Hi Hi:

Yes, Yes, and Yes.

I also agree that MAC eyeshadow is one of the best.  It stays on longer and does not run as much.

Was just thinking. If you used an angled brush to apply your shadow, It would really rock the shadow color.  Could even last longer. Wet the brush first. We've done that.
