Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow

I recently bought one of the Benefit cream shadows in the colour Birthday Suit which Benefit describes as a muted chrome. Personally I would describe it as a my lids but better colour, if you'll excuse that saying. The texture is more hard than soft and very similar to a MAC paint pot. I find that these shadows don't crease as much as the MAC paint pots, although only slightly (if that's a problem you've had with the paint pots before). The colour selection from Benefit is very beautiful and more to my taste as they are more shimmery, lighter and cooler colours.



The eyeshadow applies to the lid really nicely and gives a great shimmer to the eye; generally looking natural but enhancing the eyes. I like to do my eye make up with this shadow, letting it dry a bit, then applying more into the crease to darken the colour and create a contour. Then I like to apply a dark liner and a butt-load of mascara to create an easy natural look.



The Benefit creaseless cream shadows are 4.5g and $35 compared to MAC paint pots which are 5g and $35. Both will not run out anytime soon, so for a difference of 0.5g I don't see the price difference as an issue. (For anyone from overseas, yes cosmetics in Australia is pricey, yes it sucks).
