If you spend hours creating beautiful eye looks only to find them creased and messed up a few hours later, then you need Benefit’s creaseless cream shadow. No fancy quirky name for this little product – it’s as serious as Benefit get and they mean business. The shadow comes in a little glass pot and you can apply easily with your finger as it’s surprisingly light; with a description like ‘cream’ you expect it to be heavy and thick, but it’s as light as air. It applies really smoothly and can be built up to a really strong colour that blends exceptionally well, especially if you’re creating a slightly stronger eye look.
The darker colours are beautiful and dry within seconds, meaning the cream doesn’t sink into the crease of the eye or create a line. The result is a flawless and long-lasting smokey eye that stays put from morning until night. I’ve been using these three colours and I adore them – a rich red, golden brown and pewter grey. Sometimes it takes too long to create a more striking piece of eye makeup, especially in the mornings, but these have become my staple products to use when I know I’m going out after work and I want my makeup to last all day. I can’t recommend them enough… especially if you’re not a wizz with the eyeshadow.
