Benefit Always a Bridesmaid Creaseless Cream Shadow ($20.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “pearly lavender.” It’s a medium-dark lavender with neutral-cool undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #4 is slightly pinker and a powder product. MAC Amethyst is pinker and lighter.

It had so-so color payoff, and it wasn’t very buildable; I couldn’t get opaque color coverage, even if I applied a layer, waited thirty seconds, applied another, and so forth. At best, I was able to achieve semi-sheer to semi-opaque color. The bigger problem I had was that this tended to catch on itself and ended up looking patchy and uneven once applied. I tried using fingertips, fluffy brush, sponge applicator, and a firm, flat brush to apply this evenly but didn’t have luck with any of those methods. For the most even results, I recommend applying a very little amount and blending it out with fingertips or a fluffy brush (I like MAC’s 217 for this kind of blending) and used as a wash of color. As an eyeliner, this did better, but it smudged out a bit while setting.
