I meant to buy this shade when I actually bought Birthday Suit (I thought the name “Birthday Suit” referred to the shimmer nude colour that is actually RSVP and I just grabbed the jar off the shelf without looking; that turned out to be a serendipitous mistake, in the end). Anyway, I went back and got RSVP as well. It is very akin to MAC’s Bare Study – a light champagne beige with shine. I find I like the texture of RSVP better – it seems creamier and smoother and it hasn’t dried out as quickly as my pot of Bare Study did. The “trick” with Benefit’s cream shadows – to keep them from creasing – is to apply a very thin layer first and let it set for 30 seconds or so before applying more of the product. I finally learned this after bothering to read the instructions that come with the product!
Benefit RSVP Creaseless Cream Shadow ($20.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “sparkling champagne.” It’s a warm, champagne beige with a frosted, metallic finish. Make Up For Ever #13 is darker. Urban Decay Sin is a touch pinker and is a powder product. MAC Darling Coquette is very similar but is a loose powder. Milani Champagne Toast is a bit warmer. Urban Decay Sin is slightly pink and more frosted.
