For this exact reason I bring you Makeup Forever's Aqua Creams in #2 and #15...
|MUFE Aqua Cream #15 + #2|

Because they are very long wearing, removal can be a bit more work. I use an oil based cleanser (theBalm's Balmsaway) to remove this, and then wash my face normally. If not, I do find that I would tug to get it off. The creams are long lasting, and that may equal dry lids to some of us, but in my experience, I did not get dry lids, flaking, any changes to the skin in the eye area.

This is described as a shimmery taupe, but I find this to wear more bronze on me and it even looks like that in the tub. I would personally describe this as a perfect mix between a golden brown and bronze. Texturally, smooth and easy to blend. This does shimmer but it is not overtly so.
Right swatch - #2
This is described as a silver, grey shimmer, but to me, especially in real life, this seems more taupey than anything. The texture is smooth, and it feels a bit more translucent than #15. I find that with #2, I usually go over it twice to get a good, solid base of color. Not over the top shimmery, this is a grey that has a lot of brown to it. It is a complex color that I think will take on different properties on different skin tones.
You can find these Sephora, MUFE online, and other retailers. They usually retail for around $23.00 USD.
Thank you! :)
