Benefit Bronze Have More Fun Creaseless Cream Shadow

Benefit Bronze Have More Fun Creaseless Cream Shadow ($20.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as an “antique bronze.” It’s a deep bronze with subtle warm undertones and a copper and bronze shimmer. The finish is subtly shimmery; not as frosted or as metallic as some of the other shades in the range. MAC Venetian Tarnish is similar–a bit less red-toned. Maybelline Bad to the Bronze is lighter and more metallic. Urban Decay Smog is lighter and warmer, plus it is a powder. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning #8 is darker and less bronze, and it is also a powder product.

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.

Benefit Cosmetics Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner

I love Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadows — I actually gave them an award for best cream eyeshadow last year. They’re just so creamy, smooth, and apply beautifully. They can be applied sheerly for quick color or layered for a more intense look or as a base. I don’t experience any creasing–they last all day for me. And as someone who has owned many for over a year now, they aren’t prone to drying out in their jars, either.

Benefit Cosmetics: The Best of the Best

Benefit is the Girly Cure to Your Makeup & Skin Woes

Have you ever tried the ever-feminine Benefit Cosmetics line? Really? Never, you say? Let us fill you in on some of the best products they have to offer. But between you and me, we definitely suggest starting out with their amazing Velvet Eyeshadows, followed by their Creaseless Eyeshadows.

Hint:  Click the links for reviews (if there’s no link, we haven’t reviewed it explicitly on the blog yet).

  • Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows ($19.00) come in twelve shades, and they often put out limited edition ones as part of their seasonal collections. These are easy to wear, last all day, and can be worn alone or under other eyeshadows as a base.
  • CORALista Blush ($28.00) is a value-sized coral blusher that’s absolutely divine on warmer skin tones, but it isn’t so warm or so coral that it doesn’t work on cooler or paler skin tones, too. (I love how many of Benefit’s products work for a variety of skin tones.) This is a summer staple for me.
  • Gilded Eyeliner ($20.00) is a quick and dirty way to pop open those peepers and make those eyes look alive, even when you’re operating on little to no sleep. A pearly, golden-yellow works well on the lower water line and inner tear duct to brighten up your eyes.
  • Full-Finish Lipsticks ($18.00) came back with a vengeance last fall (in 2008) and is available in fourteen shades. These lipsticks are creamy, pigmented, and moisturizing while giving you great wear. One of my favorite lipstick formulas!
  • One Hot Minute ($30.00) is an all-over loose powder that makes your entire face look brighter and more awake with just a light dusting. It gives a soft, luminous sheen that’s not disco-ball glittery.
  • Benetint ($28.00) is just one of those cult products that you either adore or you don’t understand the buzz. It’s a great multi-tasking product that you can keep in your makeup bag for any spontaneous occasion. You can use it to add color to cheeks or lips, and one little bottle goes quite a long way. It’s soft and natural–the two must-haves of any cheek/lip stain.
  • Velvet Eyeshadow ($18.00) is easily one of the best eyeshadow formulations on the market. Velvety, silky, and smooth describe the finish of these lovelies. Pigmented and true-to-color bring it all home. The only downside? There are only ten shades! I adore, ADORE Bikini Line.
