Benefit Quick, Look Busy Longwear Powder EyeshadowBenefit Quick, Look Busy Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “matte espresso.” It’s a dark, subtly red-toned brown with a matte finish. MAC Carbonized is similar in color, but it is frosted. bareMinerals Foreshadow is cooler-toned. MAC Swiss Chocolate is warmer. MAC Brown Down is very comparable. Inglot #329 is less red-toned. Make Up For Ever #162 has a stronger red undertone.

The texture was soft, slightly powdery, and the resulting color payoff was just so-so to decent. It was semi-opaque when I initially swatched, and then when I tried applying it to the lid, it was more buildable. It’s very blendable, though, and it is easy to sheer out and harder to keep at full coverage on the lid–you have to be very precise and only blend around the outer edges of the color. It was noticeably faded after seven hours, but I didn’t experience any creasing without a primer.

For reference, it also appears in Benefit’s Easiest Nudes Ever PaletteBenefit’s Easiest Nudes Ever Palette–I make a point to mention that, because the palette itself is $30 but contains three other eyeshadows along with two Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows; more or less, unless you really hate the other products, it’s hard to justify $20 for one eyeshadow when you could be paying $30 and receiving six different products.

I think I am definitely going to grab one of the palettes (the one with the purply tones…I think?) bc you’re definitely right about the great value and I am very curious about these new Benefit shadows. I have never tried them before–not even the old formulation!
