Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow , #SkinnyJeans ,Rs 1480/4.5 g
The Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow comes in a round glass jar with a white screw top lid. The shade name is written on the lid and if you store the jar upside dow, which is the way you should store cream eyeshadows, you can see through the color of the eyeshadow through the glass. The packaging is sturdy and robust.
Skinny jeans is described as pretty pewter and I couldn't agree more on the apt description of this color. It is a cool toned deep brownish grey with a metallic finish. The shade is perfect for creating that quick smokey eye look without putting in too much of an effort. This shadow can also me used as an eyeliner.
The texture of this product is a like a slick cream, thin, but well pigmented and you don't need to do much layering with this eyeshadow. The pigmentation is very similar to MAC's Paintpots and it sets after a few seconds of application. It spreads and blends easily and there is no stretching of the skin or a crinkled skin look that you get with many cream eyeshadows that set to a powder finish.
The eyeshadow is quite long lasting even without a base and I typically get about 7-8 hours of wear without a primer underneath. By using a primer, this will stay on for more than 10 hours without any creasing. Also, when topped with a powder eyeshadow, the lasting power increases by a few hours.
Overall, the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Skinny Jeans is a great eyeshadow to have in your vanity if you're fond of eyemakeup. The color, the pigmentation and the versatility of the product are commendable. It is great value for money when compared to other cream eyeshadows because of the quantity of the product you get and the texture and feel.
