Was anyone else totally overwhelmed by the amazing blog sale Cosmetic Candy had recently? So much stuff! I picked up a couple of things including this shadow from her and I’m so pleased I did. The products are great and it was a super easy process buying from her. Really reasonably priced, she posted quickly and even stuck some goodies and samples in with the makeup! Thanks again!
You probably all know my feelings on Benefit products. I want them all. I don’t however want to pay what I feel a grossly over inflated prices for some of the products. Yes I know the products are for the most part amazing but still I have bills to pay! That said the creaseless cream shadow/ liners are probably one of the most reasonably priced items at £14 each (obviously I paid less than this at the blog sale). The packaging is a lovely substantial glass pot (make sure you fasten the lid very tightly to stop it drying out!) and you get 4.5g of product which will last you a very long time.
Here we have Pre-nup, a gorgeous rosy copper colour with a metallic finish. When they say creaseless they really do mean it! This stuff doesn’t budge once it is on your eye! Nor does it transfer up my hooded lids. I would definitely consider buying more. The only problem I have with it is that it is damn near impossible to blend. For this reason my favourite use for this is as a liner over gold shadows. It looks gorgeous and has even sparked a couple of compliments! I cannot stress enough just how good the finish and staying power is with this.
I tried applying this with a brush but it just made it go on cakey so I would recommend patting this on with your ring finger (unless using it as a liner in which case I do find the Benefit get bent liner brush works well. No I didn’t pay full price for that either. Cheapskate? Me? No....)
Anyone out there got any tips for me to blend this a little better? xx
