Benefit Birthday Suit Creaseless Cream Shadow
Benefit Birthday Suit Creaseless Cream Shadow

Benefit Birthday Suit Creaseless Cream Shadow ($20.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “brushed chrome.” It’s a warm, bronzy brown with a hint of gray; that tint is really only apparent when it is worn at full opacity, but the sheerer you wear it, the warmer and browner it appears. bareMinerals First Class is very similar in color but is a powder product. Urban Decay Muai Wowie is lighter, more golden (and a powder product, to boot!). Make Up For Ever #15 is much redder in tone.

I confirmed with Benefit yesterday that the Creaseless Cream Shadows were repackaged but not reformulated–but I did compare with new and old, and I didn’t notice any differences in texture or color.  Birthday Suit is kind of a my-lid-but-better kind of shade, for those with neutral to warm undertones. I think this is going to appear slightly more taupe-like in cooler complexions.   It had good color payoff without having to build up the color, but the consistency was thin and creamy, which allowed for very easy blending and sheering out of the color, if desired.  When I wore Birthday Suit on the lid, it lasted for ten hours well, and there was some slight fading after twelve hours of wear (no primer).

The only ding this product had was that there was noticeable fading after twelve hours of wear, though it was fully intact after ten hours (no primer). Otherwise, nicely pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that applied and blended well on the lid.
