This is my first experience with Benefit and from the moment I started swatching them at the Benefit Counter I was Hooked!
I always wondered why people would want a cream eye shadow, never really understood it, but now I do. Personally I haven't experienced any creasing, even without primer, as I only use a light enough coverage on my eyes to get the effect that I like and I seem to be lucky enough not to have oily lids. I'm not saying that creasing won't happen for some people, but these shadows are the new reformulated versions and so far so good.
It feels very light on my lids and is just lovely to work with. But you should work pretty quickly as it doesn't take long to set.
I also find that in Queeensland's climate it has good longevity and doesn't come off until I choose to take it off, but I did forget I had it on one day and did rub away some of it. My fault.
The packaging is really good, feels very solid in the hand and you can have more than enough space to put your brush or finger into the pot depending on your preference. Best of all you don't need to worry about sharpening these as you would with a pencil.
Pricewise I think it is a little expensive but I simply don't care because I love it that much! I purchased mine at Myer Carindale. Not all the Myer stores carry it so be sure to check on which store closest to you stocks it to save yourself a wasted trip.
Overall I would absolutely recommend this. I certainly won't be returning to shadow pencils after this and I can't wait to go back and get a couple more (I also have Skinny Jeans and that is just beautiful).

I've tried several of BeneFit's creaseless cream shadows before so I was prepared for the fact that they're not creaseless at all on oily lids. They tend to crease on me within an hour. However, when I layer this shade over UDPP, it stays crease-free for many hours, possibly even more than UDPP and a powder shadow, so I'm happy.
What makes me *really* happy is:
1) the new packaging is great for people with long nails who like to apply cream shadows with their fingers, the jar has a very large diameter and the shadow comes almost to the top of the jar, so it's possible to use even when my nails are really long.
2) this new shade is gorgeous. It's a perfect shimmery beige-taupe, neither really lighter nor darker than my eyelids, so it just adds a soft taupe-gold sheen. My favourite way to use it is to wear nothing but this, mascara and a bright or dark red lipstick, it's a very glowy look.

I loved the color of this eyeshadow. It is great for everyday wear or for mixing with other shadows to create a more dramatic evening look. Unfortunately, the name is a misnomer- this is definitely not creaseless. I even used it with a base and it was still creasing by the end of the day. It did not crease as much as other shadows, but still. For the price and the name, I expected something similar to the Tarte long-lasting eyeshadows. Overall, it is a nice product, but I am taking off two stars for the duration of the product since it does not do what it claims to.

this is a light to medium brown cream shadow which glides on so creamily and is perfect for a natural everyday eye look. it's a gorgeous brown with a light sheen to it. the down side is if you got oily eye lids you'll need a good primer underneath or else it'll dissolve around the crease later on in the day.
