Benefit Rain Check Longwear Powder EyeshadowBenefit Rain Check Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “smoky amethyst.” It’s a cool-toned, muted purple with a smoky feel and a satin finish. Tom Ford Enchantress #3 is lighter. NARS 413BLKR #1 is warmer. theBalm rem is purpler. Giorgio Armani #27 is metallic. NARS Charade is very comparable–perhaps a smidgen darker.

Anyone who loves soft, smoky plum will like this; and if you tend to look for really bold, intense shades, you’re best skipping to another review. It had good pigmentation–enough to get close to the color seen in the pan but there was still some sheerness–and the texture was very soft, finely-milled, but also a little powdery. What I noticed was that wants to stay as a soft, slightly sheer color when applied; it doesn’t layer or build up to full color, and it softens and sheers out very readily if you use sweeping motions to blend it. I had the best results patting and lightly swishing along the edges only, because it helped to leave the bulk of the color alone. This shade lasted seven and a half hours when I wore it, but it was a little faded after eight hours.

This shade can also be found in Benefit’s Sexiest Nudes Ever PaletteBenefit’s Sexiest Nudes Ever Palette, which contains four eyeshadows and two Creaseless Cream Shadows for $30.00 (the eyeshadows are 0.04 oz. each, and the cream eyeshadows are 0.11 oz. each, but it’s still a way better deal than buying this eyeshadow on its own unless you LOVE this one and loathe all the others).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

This somewhat reminds me of BBrown Heather, but maybe a bit darker and smokier. I love it! I’m really happy to see it is also part of the palette that includes Milk it which went on my wishlist following your review.
