Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadows in R.S.V.P. and Birthday Suit

Over the past two years, I have gone from owning zero to ten different cream eye shadows. There is something simply effortless about creme shadows, the way you can sweep them all over the lid and instantly feel made up. Recently I felt the need to add two more cream eye shadows to my collection, enter the Benefit Creaseless Creams in R.S.V.P. and Birthday Suit.

The Benefit Creaseless Creams are a cult favourite, they were recently repackaged into these cute glass pots however the formula has not changed. The formulation of these is very smooth and creamy, and the texture is a lot thinner than the Maybelline Color Tattoos. However they apply with full opacity and set within a minute's contact with the skin.

The longevity of these is better than other cream shadows I've tried, and on par with that of the MAC Paint Pot I own. The thing I really enjoyed about these is that they truly do not crease. With an eye shadow primer on their own or set with a powder these are still crease less on my eyes 8 hours later. On their own with no shadow or primer, they do fade a little after about 5 hours, but they still refuse to crease. Keep in mind that everything without a primer usually creases on me.

My only gripe with these is that I wish they were more shimmery. Even though they have shimmer in them I feel the overall look isn't as poppin' as I'd hoped. But then again I am a shimmer junkie.

Overall these are a very solid product and I think that the lasting power they provide is very impressive. If you're having a lazy makeup day, these make you look polished in a flash.

What is your favourite formulation of cream eye shadow?

  1. I love these, I have three including No Pressure!, Bronze Have More Fun and My Two Cents!

    I only wish they were a bit more opaque though!

    1. They seem opaque enough on me! Do you find them a little sheerer?

  2. I like these creaseless cream shadows from benefit :) I have 2 of them that come with the World's best Nudes set so they are not in full size.. I like the new packaging better than the old one because the new one looks more 'retro' :-)

  3. They formula sounds amazing and I like how these two shades are so easy to wear or can be used as a base! However I've realized that I want my base to have much stronger shades for colored shadows on top like a blue base or green base instead of more neutrals because I can use other bases! I have heard and seen lots of good about these but I'm more eager to try they're mascara!

    1. Totally understandable! The Maybelline Color tattoos have some more vivid colours!

  6. I really like RVSP on you! I'm eyeing No Pressure but I have Busy Signal, My Two Cents and Birthday Suit of these. The lasting power is great and I'm glad to hear they don't crease on you :)

    1. I thought that No Pressure looked too similar to Bad to the Bronze so I put it back!

  7. I find the By Terry Ombre Blackstar cream shadow pencil doesn't crease or budge (even without primer). Once I fell asleep with my makeup on (naughty) and in the morning it still looked like it had just been applied. Usually everything creases on me. My friend gave my a Bobbi Brown cream eyeshadow pencil this week but that smudged by the end of the day without primer.

  8. I've been eyeing these creaseless eyeshadows for ages but haven't had the heart to splurge on them yet but I think I will soon :P I love both these shades but Birthday Suit is calling out to me! Great to hear that they don't crease and I'm a shimmer junkie myself too :P
