Just recently purchased this and I am in love! It's such a great base eyeshadow, or if you're feeling lazy (like me most days!) you can use it as an all over crease color and throw on some mascara and it looks amazing! I put it on at 7 in the morning and it lasted right until I took my makeup off at night. Definitely a staple for me now!
Like all Benefit products the packaging on this is very pretty, not just the jar the shadow is in, but the box the jar comes in. Lasted 8-9 hours without any wear or creasing, amazing. In the pan this and Maybellines Color Tattoo in Barely Branded look identical, but they swatch differently. This is just slightly darker, with more a warm tone.
Finally a cream shadow that can actually be used as a primer. I tried MAC paint pots but none of them had actual lasting power as a base, Bobbi Brown cream shadows were even worse for me and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick was the same story so I didn't expect this one to work any better but I was very wrong. It stays put all day, doesn't crease nor fade.
It's very creamy but sets immediatly and works for any skin tone, perfect for those natural fresh looks or as a base for any colour.
The only downside to it in my opinion is that if you have creased lids the sparkles will accentuate them. I have droopy eyes and not so much lid space so when I only use this you see the wrinkles better.
This eyeshadow is great, and it is actually creaseless! I bought bikini-tini because it was fairly nude and natural looking, and I don't like to wear anything other than nude colors on my eyes. The eyeshadow itself is really smooth and creamy, and seriously, it doesn't crease!
It's good for all day wear- work, school, ect.
Highly recommend trying!
Bikini-Tini acts like a subtly glossy highlighter and/or a base. Makes other colors used with it look even better. Very versatile. The texture is silky, a pleasure to use. An instant favorite in my collection.
This is another little goodie in the "Bronze of Champions" kit from Sephora and it's a shimmery champagne colour.
It's no different from the other cream shadows on the market and the staying power is decent. (using a primer is essential with cream shadows)
I find it a little too shimmery on its own and I use it as a base when I'm doing a neutral eye look using tan and taupe colours.
It's also great as a highlighter on the brow bone or in the corner of the eyes.
