Benefit No Pressure Creaseless Cream Shadow ($20.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “rich fawn.” It’s a bronze-shimmered, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray to keep it from being too warm-toned. It has a frosted, metallic finish that reflects a fair amount of light even when sheered out. Benefit Birthday Suit is lighter and more golden. Maybelline Bad to the Bronze is warmer, more of a true bronze. Make Up For Ever #15 is a few shades darker.

Whew! While the last two shades I’ve reviewed haven’t been much to write home about, No Pressure brings its A-game!  It has a creamy, lightweight consistency that goes on opaque without having to layer and layer product on–and there’s no worries about it applying unevenly or catching on itself.  It smooths on beautifully and sheers out easily, too, if desired.  Because it’s a richer, more pigmented color, it also works well as an eyeliner.  After I wore No Pressure for twelve hours, there were no signs of fading or creasing.

Wow this shade is beautiful! I always found Bad to the Bronze to be a little too warm toned for me, so I need this! I am kinda concerned looking at the packaging though…does it screw on tightly Christine? I would hate to invest and have it dry out

Hi christine,
this looks absolutely beautiful, I have a question for you. It’s off topics but I wanted to ask you anyway. I love nars lip glosses in the tube, the color is great and the texture is nice too. I bought a set of 4 and they were lovely but somehow the taste disturbs me. I’ve heard from many people that it doesn’t have a scent and those had it was chemical and really gross. I wanted to know if this might have been just because it was a set or if this is really the case. Thanks in advance for answering Christine!

Hmm, some of NARS’ glosses have been known to have a plastic-y taste/scent – I haven’t encountered it much in the past couple of years but definitely did 3-5 years ago.

Thank you so much for the answer! Everytime I see you reviewing them I think I need to get it but the taste was such a disappointment. I have bought it a couple of years ago so I may purchase one in the near future just to try. I can’t resist haha! Thank you so much Christine for your answer.

I forget which “world famous” nudes set this is in (I have all three so I can’t remember which colors are in which set) but I was really impressed with this when I swatched it. I’m glad to know it really is as good as I thought!

Hi Christine!

I just recently discovered your blog on my new mission to learn how to use makeup more than my basic mascara and Chapstick combo. I love it, it’s so helpful! I am wondering though, what eyeshadow brushes would you recommend to beginners like me?

I would go for one of the more affordable brands like Sonia Kashuk, Eco Tools, or Real Techniques (I haven’t tried, but it was a huge readers’ favorite this past awards!), and figure out what brushes work best for your eye shape, application techniques, etc.!

Otherwise, my go-to brushes that I think are versatile would be: MAC 239, MAC 217, and Make Up For Ever #17S. If you do any lining, an angled brush is great – MAC 266 or 263 (263 is thinner).

You never know with cream shadows. Oily lids can be a very broad term. If you apply this product with clean, oil-free lids–this should work for you. Especially if you set it with shadow.

First, let me say that I love your reviews! I just purchased Benefit My Two Cents Creaseless Cream Shadow based on your review and because I was looking for a coppery colored cream shadow. However, I am also super interested in “No Pressure”. Do you think the colors are different enough to warrant purchasing “No Pressure”?

I don’t think they’re dupes! I would say that if you were only going to own two of the formula, you might want to opt for shades that are more different (they are both “brown” in a way). My Two Cents is definitely coppery, warmer, and brighter.
