Skinny Jeans is a dusty-brown-taupe (not the denim blue that the name may suggest) that really looks great with blue eyes. There's some subtle shimmer, but it's barely noticeable.With some black eyeliner, this makes for a quick smokey eye.
The texture isn't bad, but I find that this dries too quickly to really blend well. True to its name, over a primer it doesn't crease.... for a while. I have oily lids and Skinny Jeans will last 5-6 hours on me without creasing. That's pretty good compared to other cream shadows that I've tried.
I'm not a huge BeneFit fan in general, but Skinny Jeans is a keeper.
This product has a very similar formula to the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, though I'd say it applies more sheerly, then lasts better (BttB fades; this does NOT). It's a much more blendable and less drying formula than MAC Paints, but it really does last, staying true to colour from application till many hours later.
Skinny Jeans is a great versatile shade. The base is a fairly cool grey, maybe a hint of blue undertone. The shimmer is warm, so the end result is very flexible. It blends out fairly sheerly (for a dark-ish colour), which makes applying precisely and looking polished easy, even with fingers, which I find to be the best method. Looks great sheered out over the lid and deepened into the crease, then blended up onto browbone into nothing. One product, complete shadow look!
It also looks great with a touch of highlighter over the lid & inner corner (try a frosty beige, ivory or icy white). Lovely with pinks, blues or greens for a more vibrant look. I like it with a greyish-turquoise liner for a casual look, or with black for something more dramatic. I'm reaching for this nearly every day! continued >>
Awesome product that rivals MAC Paint Pots. Lives up to its shadow/liner claim!
Price: $24 CAD
Colour: dark green-tinged pewter
Wear time: all day
It's even more buttery than MAC PP!
Gorgeous with MAC Sumptuous Olive layered on the centre and any dark shade in the crease
This is all-around awesome colour to have, especially for dark brown-eyes girls like me
This is SUCH a beautiful color, but it makes my very yellow toned skin look sickly. With a bold lip and proper blush I can pull this off, but it doesn't work as well for my skin tone as I thought it would. Makes my hazel-green eyes pull very green, though!
I got sucked into buying this by a Lisa Eldridge video as it looks like it should be the perfect colour for me. There is no way that this is creaseless, the formulation is very dry and it stuck to my lids rather than being blend able like the LM creme eye shadows which I love. I will be giving this away!
Pretty pewter shade, love it for smokey eyes. Lasts as long as mac PP or UDPP. One of benefits best products. Love it on lid or crease really. its versatile!
This stuff definitely lives up to its name! I put it on this morning before work and it lasted through work and kickboxing class. And it didn't crease at all.
The color on me is a pewter with a little gold shimmer. It's great for a light smoky eye with one swipe, or you can layer it to build the color. Would absolutely recommend this product.
This is an interesting color. For all those who say they don't see the gold, I think it's all in the application, just like Fyrinnae shadows. With this color, if I use a brush, I see no gold, and predominantly a greenish gray. When I use my finger, it's definitely a goldish pewter, even some green hint showing through. It's more complex when I use my finger. In fact, when I apply it with my finger and pat it on, it resembles Fyrinnae's Snow Leopard, but it's more gray than brown. I like it. It is sheer, but it covers the veins in my eyelid and gives me a delicate smokey eye easily. It lasts for hours and I don't use primer. The one thing I have found is that I have to put any liner on first because once this shadow sets, the liner drags and won't smudge well on top. It's also more shimmery if I use a brush than my finger, so I guess I'll be putting this on with my finger from now on because I don't want all that glittery look during the day. Took off a lippie for the price--I hate to pay $20+ for eyeshadow.
Update: had to return because it was irritating my eyelids! Darn my sensitive eyes! But this was no small irritation--my lids were swollen and red and getting flaky. Watch out for the long-wear products if you have sensitive skin, but THANKS Sephora for taking things back!
Cream eyeshadow that pulls silvery green on my skin. I don't like this at all with my NC25 (very yellow) skin tone. I think this would look great on someone who is pale and cool toned. I'm going to try this as an eyeliner instead.
This is my first creaseless cream shadow/liner and I got it in a swap here because I wanted to try it so badly in this colour, which is supposed to be flattering on almost all eye colors and skintones. I mostly use this when I need a quick makeup which has to last all day without touch-ups, and I have to say this never fails. This product is REALLY creaseless on me. I applied it on sunday at 7.30 in the morning to go to work and then ended up spending the whole day out. It started slightly creasing around midnight! for me it's just miracolous. I usually put a tiny bit of primer underneath if I know I'm gonna need extra duration, otherwise I apply it directly on the eyelid. the color is a beautiful mix of grey and green which looks really sophisticated and adds a lovely light to my hazel eyes. you only need a tiny bit of black eyeliner and it already looks like a proper makeup even if you spent less than 5 mins on it. the packaging is okay although the glass jar makes it not super convenient to travel, but all in all is good. I never tried it as a liner but I will as soon as I have a chance. I want to try other colors too because these seem to work really well for me.
