Benefit Silver Spoon Swatches & Review!

Benefit, as well as other brands, sometimes release exclusive to Sephora products. Most of the time, it’s a pack of samples, or some sort of starter kit. Sometimes there will be a brand that releases a palette or a nail collection but generally, if it’s a makeup product, it’s generally not going to be a full size. That’s why when I saw this deal in Sephora’s coupon tab, I was totally shocked because it was so out of the ordinary, especially for a brand like Benefit.
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.

Silver Spoon is a mid-toned silver that’s not too warm nor cool. It’s not incredibly metallic, almost more like a shimmery gray, rather than what you would regularly qualify as “silver”.
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!

  4. Fearing this attachment, Wichita leaves with Little Rock for Pacific Playland,
    convincing themselves that they can should go back to trusting only themselves.
    He explains that his survival to date has been as a result
    of not having any friends to be that come with and never being close together with his family, and
    a listing of "rules" for surviving the zombie apocalypse (triggered with a virulent kind of human adapted mad cow disease), which gets to be a recurring motif inside
    the film. It really is frequently much more convenient to throw one thing in the crock pot for that family or resort to the quickly food final option as opposed to preparing the
    wholesome and nutritious meal that individuals need to become eating.
