I received the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in 'Bronze Have More Fun' as part of my goody bag from the #midsummermeet event last summer. At that time I was too deeply in love with the MAC Paint Pots to think clearly about any other brand including the fantastic Maybelline Color Tattoos. I am pleased to say I finally got over it and started using this amazing cream shadow.
Let's start with the packaging, I just love it. With it's unique print and colourful cardboard pot it really makes my eyeshadow drawer look pretty.
The product itself is a cog shaped glass pot with a pale lid. I have no idea why but I love the noise that the glass makes as you unscrew/screw the lid on, I don't know if it's the weight of the glass or the noise but it makes it feel more lux (am I odd?!)
The cream shadow itself is super smooth and glides onto my lids. It's very pigmented which is brilliant as this is my main issue with the MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study (I can still see my eyelid colour through it.)
The shade is stunning and I love how quick and easy it is to apply. It makes a simple eye look look more complicated than it really is and the lasting power is brilliant without a single crease.
I hope you'll appreciate my honestly when I say that when I found out this was worth £15.50 I thought that I wouldn't be purchasing anymore... until I tried it. They're seriously gorgeous and although they're more expensive than the Maybelline Color Tattoo, the colour selection is beautiful and for that reason I foresee I will end up with a small collection of these bad boys in the future!
If you're passing a Benefit counter I would highly suggest you take a look at these!
