Product Review: Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Honey Bunny

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners have well and truly cemented their place on my favourite products of 2010 list. If there was such a list. Which I guess there is in my head, but I probably won’t be doing an actual post about it. So yes, the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners are pretty amazing. You may remember that I ordered 3 of the shadow/liners on a whim after seeing swatches of a few of them over at Dee’s blog. So far Honey Bunny has been the one that I have worn the most. It’s the in-between colour as far as the shades that I purchased go, and I’ve been wearing it practically every day teamed with MAC Naked Lunch and Dazzlelight as a highlight.

You can wear the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners on their own as shadows (or liners I guess?) but I’ve found that they make really amazing primers when worn under powder shadow. When I’m feeling lazy I will wear them solo, but more often than not I have been wearing them matched with powder eyeshadows and I’ve been amazed at the staying powder that they provide. Even with my oily, hooded eyelids (how beautiful does that sound?) my eye makeup has been lasting entire work days, even in 40 degree (+!) heat. I was applying them using my Benefit shadow/liner brush, but honestly I find that I get better coverage and it’s easier to apply if I use my fingers. The Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners retail for $34 AUD but you can currently snap them up for $17 over at Strawberrynet.
