Benefit Cosmetics New Creaseless Cream Shadow Review, Swatches and Pictures

A few months bag I was lucky enough to host a house party with Ipsy and Benefit Cosmetics. In addition to fun samples I got to share with my guests, I received a very generous hostess gift, which included several of the brand’s hottest and newest products, including two brand new Creaseless Cream Shadows in Bronze Have More Fun and Bikini-Tini. I love neutrals and earthy tones, so this duo could not have been more perfect.

After my recent disappointment with cream shadows always creasing on me, anything that promises to stay on all day without creases sounds like white noise to me.

Benefit Cosmetics claims that these eye shadows are “crease-proof & budge-proof, glide on easily and last all day long”. The formula is indeed very smooth and creamy, ensuring even application, regardless of the method: use your fingers or brushes, it will go on evenly and look great. Five to six light swirls around the pan provides with a fair amount of pigment while barely making a dent on the surface. The shadows have a very light neutral fragrance, which is nice, because I’m really not a fan of products that smell like dye.

I really have to compliment the beautiful packaging which I like way more than the previous version they had. These flat glass jars with a twist-off cap look very girly and elegant, and if you stack them one on top of another, they look almost like dessert! 🙂 All of the info about the product is printed on the cap, which is my main problem with the new packaging. If you accidentally swap them, you’d have no way of knowing which shade is which.

The color descriptions on the site are quite accurate: Bikini-Tini is listed as “oyster pink”, and Bronze Have More Fun is a rich “antique bronze”.

Longevity-wise, these eye shadows have a truly impressive staying power. I put them on in the AM, and my eyes still looked like I just did my makeup when the clock showed well past midnight. I’m sure if I didn’t remove them before going to bed, they would still be there in the morning.

Most importantly, are they really creaseless? My answer is, yes they are! I have moderately oily eyelids, so it’s just a matter of time until most eye shadows crease on me, even the “creaseless” ones.

Overall, I would say that Creaseless Cream Shadows lived up to their name, and provided at least 12 hours of wear, with the potential to last even longer. In addition to easy application, the colors are well-pigmented and don’t fade or crease on the lids. Just be careful not to misplace those caps, or it might get really confusing which shade is which.
