Benefit Skinny Jeans Review and Swatch

Cream eye products have never been my favorite. I've tried MAC paint pot after paint pot, always expecting to love them. I never do. Even over a primer they crease on me and cause my eyeshadow to migrate after a few hours, and my eyelids aren't even oily!

Somehow, though, Benefit's formulation fits me like my favorite pair of skinny jeans. The colors, the staying power, it just works!

This is my favorite color I've picked up from the Benefit cream shadow line so far. Benefit's description of this color being "pretty pewter" fits, but doesn't express the complexity of the shade. In different lights it can lean mossy green, silvery or coal colored. Gorgeous!!

This color is perfect spread over my lid as a base for a smokey eye, but I've also been loving using it as a gel eyeliner, it works for a gorgeous, softer version of the cat eye!

This color leans cool but would be flattering on all complexions. It costs $20 and can be found at Sephora here.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Leave me a comment letting me know if you use cream shadows? Do they work for you?
