I picked up a few Ben Nye Creme Color wheels for my MUA kit and I love them. Ben Nye Creme Colors are very versatile and can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks (face)… think eyeshadow base, liner, lipstick, face painting and more. Use your imagination and the options are endless. I picked up the Fireworks Fantasy, Lumie’re Creme and Rainbow Wheels.
Fireworks Fantasy Wheel
The Fireworks Fantasy Wheel has six gorgeous metallic shades that would look great as eye shadows and used as bronzers and highlighters.

Lumiere Creme Wheel
The Lumiere Creme Wheel contains six luminescent creme colors in bright jewel tones. Perfect companion for the Lumier Grand Colour Powders to be used as bases for the shadows, but works well as shadows alone.
From left to right: Ice, Aztec Gold, Jade, Azalea, Cosmic Blue and Royal Purple
The Rainbow Wheel contains six primary shades. Primary colors can be mixed to create new shades which is an added bonus.
From left to right: Black, Yellow, Green, Orange, Blue and Fire Red
When using the Ben Nye Creme Colors as eyeshadow/eyeshadow bases, follow these tips for maximum wear and to avoid creasing:
- Use an eyeshadow Primer
- Apply a thin layer
- Set with a translucent powder (if using alone as eyeshadow)
Ben Nye Creme Color Wheels are very inexpensive and range between $10-$20 depending on where you purchase them. The shades can also be purchased separately for about $4-$5 per shade but it is more cost effective to buy the wheels. I plan to pick up a few more Ben Nye Wheels including the Tattoo Cover-All and Creme Blush Wheels, and a White single shade. These are perfect for MUA kits since they contain multiple shades and don’t take up a lot of space, but they are perfect for personal use as well.
