Review: Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit

If you have read my blog for a while, you may have noticed that I am a big fan of cream eyeshadows. And seeing as every man and his dog (including me) are doing reviews on the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Gel/Cream Eyeshadows, I thought I'd talk a little bit about other cream shadows that are on the market.

Now, I'm not trying to persuade you away from the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's, as they are incredible value, and these ones are considerably more expensive, but I will do a review never the less!

So the products is the Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit.

As you can see, the packaging is very similar- glass bottom with the black lid.

I've had this eyeshadow for nearly a year now, and I still have at least a quarter left, and I used to wear it every single day!

On the Benefit website, the shade is described as a 'Brushed Crome' in my eyes, in some light it looks like a dark gold, and in some light it looks like a very light bronze. Like with all eyeshadows, they look different to and on other people.

You can see the colour by the swatch.

The consistency of these are a lot creamier than the Maybelline ones. They are softer on the fingers, and easier to blend.

Again, creaseless wise, both are as good as each other, they really don't budge at all! Even if you have oily lids!

The only plus side to these ones, are that they are easier to blend, and they have more selection of colours that are more suited for every day wear.

Have you tried either of them? Which did you prefer?



  1. This color is gorgeous! Thanks for posting a swatch. I have been meaning to check out more from the Benefit line.

  2. Thats Ok! Glad you enjoyed! x

  3. I love these shadows! Although 'creaseless' is extremely inaccurate as, for me, they personally crease like crazy! I love them nonetheless! I really like 'Sippin' and dippin'' - especially for this season! xxx

    1. I'm usually the same, but even without a primer, these dont budge! If you like Sippin' and Dippin, its on the Cheapsmells website for around £6. Its all real stuff, and free delivery, I've ordered from it before and was really impressed! xx

    2. Thanks for the heads up! xx
