Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows


IMG_6573About 2 months ago I was talking to my friend Lauren on Twitter and we were talking perfume.  I mentioned I had a perfume in my collection that I really didn’t like and offered to send it to her.  She ended up sending me the most embarrassingly generous box in return.  She thoughtfully sent me 2 Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows, which is a product that I’ve always wanted to try!

IMG_6575Unfortunately, both of these shades aren’t available anymore 😦  I contemplated not even reviewing them, but I figured that although you can’t get these particular colors, it might still be beneficial to hear my thoughts on the staying power and consistency.  Plus, there’s always ebay!

If you want to read my full review and if these really are “creaseless”, then keep reading!

IMG_6576Silver Spoon is just as the name suggests, a silver metallic.  Pre-nup is a rosey copper metallic, almost a coral shade.  I was really drawn to Pre-nup because I thought it would really make my green eyes pop.

From Benefit:

Blendable, beautiful…this do-it-all shadow lines, shades, and contours your eyes with a lovely crease-proof, smudge-proof formula. Mix & match…layer on for the desired depth…go as sheer or as dramatic as you like with buildable color. These gorgeous creams come in 12 blendable shades that can be worn alone or mixed for endless custom looks. You’ll love the glass jar…remember to close it tight to keep your cream shadow creamy & dreamy!

Benefit also claims that you can use these as a liner but unfortunately I haven’t tried using them in that way.  So this review is all about using the shadows as shadows.

IMG_6577Silver Spoon and Pre-Nup.  1 swipe, without primer.  Ignore the cat scratches!

What I like: These are extremely creamy, buttery and pigmented.  A little really does go a long way with these! I apply and blend these with my fingers and they go on so easily that they basically apply themselves.  These also make great bases for other shadows, which is how I prefer to wear them.  I’ve been using Pre-nup a lot all over the lid and up into the crease and then putting a champagne color on top, over the lid.  They dry pretty quickly as well

What I don’t like:  These aren’t exactly creaseless.  Without a primer, they only last on me for just over 6 hours before creasing.  With a primer, they don’t crease at all, but it sucks that I have to use a base for a base.

Overall, I really love these but hate that I need to use a primer to make them last on my lids.  They feel so rich and creamy and they don’t fade at all on my lids.  So as long as my eyes are open, my makeup looks like I just applied it.  Benefit just came out with a few new shades and new packaging, I might to have check them out!

Grade: B

Price: $19.00

  1. These are my favorite cream eye shadows ever! That’s weird they creased on you, they’ve never creased on me without a base. But, everyone’s lids on different! There’s a new gorgeous copper shade out that is seriously stunning, and RSVP is always a great choice too! Hope you find some more you like! :]

  2. What a lovely silver! And cute name too. Shame they have not continued making them, I wonder why? Ebay is always there as you say, but the place is full of fakes so I’m super wary now xx

    • i dunno, i checked the website and they have a few colors that are similar, but just don’t have these shades anymore. but maybelline has a few shades that are really similar too that are much cheaper
