The deal that was going on for that period of time, was with any $25 purchase you’d get a free, full-sized Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Silver Spoon. Previously they had 2 colors, the other was a purple, but I didn’t see that in time. Knowing how great the Benefit Crème Shadows are, I instantly used that coupon and was very excited to have seen that before it went down.
Like all the Benefit crème shadows, this was very creamy, and had good pigmentation. The silver didn’t go on sheer at all, although I know by experience with the Benefit shadows that they're pretty easy to sheer out. If you want just a sheer wash of color, you can totally do that with these. I bring this up because some cream shadows don't go sheer all that well, and just go patchy instead.
The easiest way to apply them, I have found, is just with your finger. It works ok with a brush but applying it was just easier with my finger because I had more control over how much I wanted to layer on the product.
Layering powders is also fine with this product. It sets when it dries so there isn't really a sticky base if you wait too long, but shadows easily blend on top of them.
They do crease on me after about 8 hours if worn alone, but I find with an eyeshadow base, they are totally fine to last all day.I don’t have a neutral gray or silver base, so I’m happy to finally have one, especially from Benefit!
