I really love cream eyeshadows, and the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Eyeshadows are my very favorite. I have used them for years, and they are the cream shadows that I reach for the most.

The By Terry Ombre Blackstar formula is long-lasting, budge-proof and smudge-proof from the moment that it sets until the time that you remove it– I kid you not! In fact, I have to use a duo-phase makeup remover to take it off. However, if you have particularly oily eyelids your wear-time may vary, and you may find the need to use a primer.

The luxurious texture is creamy and buttery soft lending itself to effortlessly gliding across the eyelids without incident. However, you do need to blend it out rather quickly since it won't budge once it sets. Unlike some long-wearing cream eyeshadows, that seem to tug on the lids once they dry,  By Terry Ombre Blackstar Color-Fix Cream Eyeshadows feel natural on the eyelids without any discomfort or pulling. When I apply them it in the morning before leaving for work, they remain steadfastly in place without cracking, peeling, fading, transferring or smudging until I remove them. I have worn them from 7AM until Midnight, and they never fail me. The pigmentation is sensational, and is matched by the overall exquisite quality of the eyeshadow pencils themselves.

If you are interested in one or two shades, then it is probably worth just buying them individually, but BY TERRY Impearlious Ombre Blackstar Gift Collection features 5 of their top-selling shades in full-sizes for $155.00 (rather than the normal $44.00 for each).
According to By Terry the Ombre Blackstar offers,

A flawless, buildable, light-reflecting eye shadow that delivers instant lift and radiance. Formulated with Tahitian Black Pearl, By Terry’s Ombre Blackstar provides luminous color for lusciously smooth lids with just a single stroke of the easy-to-use pen applicator. Its smudge and smear-free formula instantly airbrushes out skin creases, delivering light-reflecting radiance that acts as a rejuvenating lift for the eye area. Incredibly easy-to-apply, this luxuriously creamy eye shadow boasts supremely buildable coverage that’s perfect for creating a dramatic smoky eye, while adhesive polymers provide a color-fixing effect that means your makeup stays impeccably fresh all day long.
Tips: Draw a line at the roots of the eyelashes for a perfect liner effect. Colour the entire eyelid, or blend with your fingertips all the way up to the eyebrows for an easy and quick smokey effect. Create your own made-to-measure look by mixing two or three shades.
BY TERRY Impearlious Ombre Blackstar Gift Collection Includes:

Nº 1 Black Pearl: is a dark blackened gun-metal with stunning luminescent pearl.

Nº 3 Blond Opal: is a stunning gold with golden shimmer.

Nº 4 Bronze Moon: is the perfect neutral and infinitely wearable bronzey taupe shade. It has gorgeous refined shimmer that brightens the eyes without over-doing it. Bronze Moon is the perfect stand alone shade that is at once elegant and perfect as a wash of color, and it's as close to a fuss-free swatch and go shade that I could  hope for!

Nº 6 Frozen Quartz: is a breathtaking shimmering peachy pink.

Nº 15 Ombre Mercure: is a golden taupe with the slightest green shift. It is a complex shade that may be my favorite Ombre Blackstar to date.
Note the stunning luminosity in each of the shades
Gift Box:
Overall Assessment: The By Terry Ombre Blackstar Eyeshadows are unquestionably luxurious and expensive, but they are truly extraordinary. If you think that you would wear all of the colors in the set, then it is well worth the splurge– especially since you save $65.00 ($155.00 vs. $220.00 purchased individually), but if you only want one or two, then it is worth purchasing them individually. A+

$155.00 for Set of 5 or $44.00 each (0.0574 oz. each) from Space NK (Affiliate Links).
