Benefit Thanks a Latte Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “golden brown.” It’s a gilded, golden medium brown with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen. Too Faced Cinnamon Sugar is slightly darker. Urban Decay Chase is darker. Urban Decay Suspect is browner. Dior Couture Gold #5 is a touch more golden. bareMinerals Cognac is darker. MAC Woodwinked is darker, redder in tone.

Now, this is a Benefit eyeshadow I can get behind! I haven’t had the greatest luck with their relaunch of the eyeshadow range, but Thanks a Latte definitely reminds me of the Benefit eyeshadows I fell in love with. It looks a lot darker in the pan than it does applied or swatched, which I expect is due to how reflective the finish is. The texture was soft, smooth, and buttery, and it applied the same way. It adhered and sat well on the lid, and it lasted better than a lot of the other shades did, too. I was able to get a full nine hours of wear with no fading or creasing.

This shade can also be found in Benefit’s Easiest 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).

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

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 looks remarkably similar to CoverGirl’s “Mink”. It’s pretty much a staple in my makeup collection. I think I’m on my third pan so far!!

I’m loving the packaging for these, though. It’s right up my alley.
