Benefit Kiss Me, I’m Tipsy Longwear Powder Shadow

Benefit Kiss Me, I’m Tipsy Longwear Powder Shadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “spiced brown.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a satin finish. Benefit Dandy Brandy is more frosted but the colors are very similar. NARS Surabaya #1 is darker. Guerlani Turandot #4 is darker and more red-toned. MAC Mulch is a touch more shimmery. If you have the Most Glamorous Nudes palette, you’ll find this shade is included in it (and the palette is $30 and includes 4x 0.04 oz. eyeshadows plus 2x 0.11 oz. Creaseless Cream eyeshadows).

This shade had excellent pigmentation, and the texture was lovely–soft, smooth, and finely-milled. It blended beautifully and easily on the lid, and there was no powderiness despite it having such a soft feel. It wore just over eight hours on me (no primer) without fading or creasing but there was some faint fading after nine hours. Β It’s definitely a standout shade within the range, though you may have something similar to it already.

Would this shade be good for a brown smokey eye? I have the black down pact, but looking for the perfect brown for a smokey eye.

I think I only have one Benefit powder eye shadow (back when they were called Velvet or something and had the birds on the square case) and I really love it. Big surprise – it’s a taupe! But even though I also own Mulch, I’d be interested in checking Kiss Me, I’m Tipsy for the new formula and, well, just because I’m WEAK!

I got a little sample of this shade in the “Most Glamorous Nudes Ever” palette. I never expected to love this color so much. You maybe need a touch or swipe of color and there’s pigmentation like WOAH. It’s a great color to use for a daytime smoky eye look, or even a little bit to fill in eyebrows.

Beautiful color. Im always looking for that perfect brown and this looks promising. Concerning brown eyeshadow, I have a question for the Temptalia readers: do you think brown eyeshadow is “aging”. I’m 56 years old and the skin around my eyes is in pretty good shape. I have blue eyes and red hair and the right brown just makes blue eyes pop. But I’ve read so many times that brown eyeshadow is aging and women of a certain age should just stay away from it. I would be really interested in some honest opinions from real people, not just supposed “experts”.

I don’t think so! I would say it’s more in the finish of an eyeshadow than anything else – certain finishes can accentuate/emphasize lines (but even some that do…. there are formulas that don’t!).

I don’t know much about the “rules” regarding mature makeup, but I feel that MOST rules are pinch-of-salt material, or totally-ignore material! If you feel it looks nice, you should wear it. Trust what you see in the mirror.

Deb girl, I’ll be 50 in July. I wear what’s flattering to my unique coloring and skin type. I’m a nutmeg brown girl and I wear brown eyeshadows (lol)! There are no rules – It’s about texture, complimentary coloring and proper application. I can’t begin to tell you how many youngsters ask me for makeup advice and I’m no expert. πŸ™‚ Keep doing what you’re doing – reading great bloggers like Christine, researching and swatching.

It’s a pretty color, but I cannot stand the name of this shadow. It seems very irresponsible of companies to use names that make light of certain situations, especially ones that can be potentially dangerous. Sorry about the rant, but I wish companies would be a more positive roll model to women.

That was exactly what I thought when I first read the title! Bad enough that there are too many cases of rape that start out this way, but to name a beauty product after it? I mean I get that this is ‘just’ an eyeshadow but they had millions of other choices they could have made when it came to naming it. This is just a bit too much πŸ™

AGREED!!! It’s really nice to read I’m not the only one with this reaction. I think this is particularly bad given the actual potential danger of that situation (umm 1 in 4 college aged women will be sexually assaulted and the vast majority of the time, alcohol is involved), but a lot of their names bother me. I feel like Benefit picks ditzy-sounding names thinking it’s cute, but to me… ugh.
