Kourtney Kardashian’s hack will seriously up your eyeshadow game

Kourtney Kardashian's unusual eyeshadow trick

And it involves this cult cream

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / April 24 2018

Along with recently unveiling the new Kourt x Kylie makeup collection with makeup mogul sister Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian has also blessed us with an interesting trick to up the ante on our eyeshadow.

In an interview with V magazine, Kourtney revealed some of her go-to beauty products, which included the $28 Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. And we’re not surprised this is one of her staples – developed by Elizabeth Arden herself back in 1930, it’s as cult classic as they get!

“I love Elizabeth Arden’s eight-hour cream,” Kourtney said. “It works great when you put them on top of these [Kourt X Kylie] shadows, making them glossier.”


Not only does she pair the cream with her freshly-dropped eyeshadow collection, but she also uses it as a lip balm and under her eyes. “I just love it!” she added.

We’ve also heard of the Eight Hour Cream being used by fans as a hair de-frizzer, dry cuticle treatment and unruly eyebrow tamer.

Is there anything it can’t do?

Excuse us while we apply some of this balm to our *whole* body.
