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 ...
