I tried it ... Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow

I had a gift card from Sephora burning a hole in my pocket, so I went online and snagged a couple products I wanted to try. Advertised brightly on their site was a set from Benefit that included the Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner. I had never used Benefits cosmetics before, so I'd thought I'd try this set ... I have issues with my shadows creasing no matter what base I wear (I prefer Painterly by MAC, and is what I use daily). By the middle of the day, I always need to re-touch my eye make-up to fill in the gaps that seperated.
The color that was sent with the set is called Birthday Suit. I was thrilled with this, because 90 percent of the time, I wear a cream colored shadow for a clean look (Shroom by MAC is my everyday shadow).
I was nervous at first, because being such a creamy/oily base, I assumed it would only wear off quicker. I decided to wear it alone, without adding any other shadow on top. The look was pretty and had a frosty shimmer that was subtle. I liked it. I had it on for a good 8 hours, and when it was time to wash it off, I didn't notice any major creasing!
I received a smaller size with the set I bought, but these shadows retail for $19 each and are available in some amazing colors. I would definitely purchase a couple of my favorite colors to have in my stash. These would be perfect for a night out being that they last so long and have gorgeous pigments!!
Here's Benefit's description of this product, found on Sephora's website ...
Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner
What it is:
Benefit's creaseless cream shadow/liners are guaranteed to make you gorgeous as they line, shade, and contour your eyes.
What it is formulated to do:
Blendable, beautiful - this do-it-all shadow lines, shades, and contours your eyes with a lovely crease-proof, smudge-proof formula. Mix and match, or go as sheer or as dramatic as you like with layerable, buildable color. You'll love the glass jar - just remember to close it tight to keep your cream shadow creamy and dreamy!

Have you tried these yet? What did you think?

I want Birthday Suit for sure, I just got my first one a few weeks ago and I love it. Mine is in the color Skinny Jeans and I reviewed it recently, it's a very pretty silver/pewter/taupey kind of color.

I've never tried Benefit cosmetics before either. I just got my first thing by them yesterday. I purchased one of their foundation sticks off of ebay. Today is the first day I've used it.. so far I like it.

Oooo that is pretty! If I feel like my shadow will crease I use the MAC..I think it's called something pot?Shoot I can't remember! But it's a base that helps. Love the shimmer though!
