Estee Lauder Double Wear Cream Eye Shadow in Mochachino (24) is a staple. The formula of Lauder's Double Wear range is hard-working, creamy, blendable and kind to my skin. It's true to the promise of lasting from morning to night, makes an excellent base for powder eye shadow and plays well with other products. I can't get enough of creamy eye makeup (liners and shadows lately), and Estee Lauder offers some beautiful wearable options with a flattering shimmer finish. The fact that they survive NYC summer humidity is another huge advantage.
Double Wear Cream Eye Shadow in Mochachino (24) is exactly as the name implies: a medium-light brown. Lauder's Mochachino is not too warm and in certain lights looks almost taupe. It's a great partner for summer teal, my favorite navy colors and rich forest green. Those of you with fair complexions and light colored eyes can take it in the other direction and pair Mocachino with champagne and gold.
While I use this cream eye shadow often and generously (and have been doing so for three months or so) I've barely made a dent in the pot, so it's not wasteful in any way.
Bottom Line: a winner (and wait till you see the other shades).
