I use a primer underneath and this product lasts all day. The figgy color is beautiful. Layering a medium brown shade over it makes a beautiful berry-chocolate shade. Awesome for your fall colors.

I have been leary of buying cream shadows for a long time, because my semi-oily hooded lids seem to make everything creamy crease horribly! (I'm looking at you, NYX Jumbo Pencils!) Anyway, after reading some reviews here I decided to try Get Figgy. I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised! I wore it with UDPP underneath and it really did not crease on me all day! This is a really pretty warm brown, with an almost purpley or mauvey tone to it. I used the Elf "C" brush to apply it and it goes on really nice and smoothly. The edges blended out nicely with a powder shadow as well. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that it has a little bit of a shiny, wet look to it that isn't my favorite. It's a really pretty color though, so I will keep wearing it and I think I'd buy it again. If you're afraid to try cream shadows because of past creasing, try this!

A very lovely MUA'er gave me this in a swap and I really love it :) The packaging is very cute, and you get a decent amount of product. The colour works so well as a base for me for lots of different looks. It's a reddy, plum, taupey colour that can definitely be built up for more colour. It works well with other cream or powder shadows and definitely doesn't crease. Wonderful!

This was my first cream eyeshadow product purchase, and I got it on sale, basically at about USD10 from Strawberrynet. It's a lovely color, a little muted, since I prefer darker purple colors. This is sort of a everyday taupey plum color. It's honestly quite pretty but the reason why I wouldn't buy it again is because its a little ordinary and it creases on me unless I use UDPP under it. Which kind of goes against the whole "creaseless" concept :P

BeneFit's Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow/Liners are hands down my favorite eye shadows--they go on smoothly and it's easy to build up layers for more intensity and they blend well both with other cream and powder shadows.
The color is a little darker then what I'm use to, but it'd probably look less intense on a darker complexion.

I really like this product. It's very creamy and the colour works great with my light-medium skintone. I find Get Figgy a much more wearable shade of reddish-plum and doesn't make me look tired like other eye shadows of the same shade. I wear this on top of a primer because it does crease on its own, which is a downfall to its creaminess. Also, I find these products dry out much faster than other cream shadows, also due to it's creaminess. After awhile it does start to have a strange smell to it, almost as if it were going bad, but it's not. At retail price, this is quite expensive for what it is, but I still love it nonetheless, great product!

I bought this because of all the raves and I read its gentle. The gentle part is true it didn't bother my overly sensitive eyes. I went to Sephoras to buy my first benefit cream. The sales lady chose Figgy for my green eyes. It looks just awful. I have light skin an instead of bringing out the green it brought out the red. I look like I have a conjunctivitis. Its going right back. I will try a lighter color. Figgy has alot of red in it. Not for me.It did stay on and was very gentle . I find Sephora's sales people will sell you anything. Next time I will select my own.

I really liked this color on me when I applied it using my makeup mirror, but outside in natural light, and under the fluorescent lights at work, my eyes looked feverish. Get Figgy is beautiful color, but I should know better than to try to wear reddened plums. In the jar, the color is more complex. I can see bronze, taupe, plum, and a hint of red. I was hoping it would complement my green-blue-grey eyes, but it just wasn't right for me. I still give it a rating of 4 for supreme creaminess, blendability, and the fact that it honors its claims to be creaseless and long wearing.
I also love the luxury of the glass pots (I am sick of everything plastic), and that the mouth of the jar is wide enough to get my finger inside--unlike the teeny openings in Bobbi Brown cream shadow pots. I said I would not buy again because of the color, but I love the formulation and have several other colors in Creaseless Cream.

Once again, a Benefit employee threw this product at me (not literally) so I was kind of forced to buy it :/ The color is really pigmented, which is nice. The color reminds me of a darker, more intense version of MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow. I just hate the smell of this creme eyeshadow. Maybe my nose is too sensitive or something but I really can't stand the smell. The little birds on the packaging is cute but I think I'll stick to other eyeshadows.

Beautiful mauvey-brown that stays put and doesn't crease even on my oily lids. I have several shades of the creaseless creams and this is the softest so be careful when dipping in. Gorgeous paired with Bobbi Brown's Black Mauve gel liner.

I like the product, which I mostly use as an eyeliner, but I don't like the glass packaging at all. I travel a lot and it is extra weight and bulk for nothing. I use it over F.Y Eye eyeshadow primer and it stays on all day. I haven't tried it without the primer. I will not repurchase because I rarely apply eye make up so this will last a very long time. I also got it quite recently so I can't comment on the product drying out, but I will update if it does.

The color on Get Figgy is gorgeous .. it's a medium frosty plum/taupe, and with all Benefit creaseless, the new formula applies well, but that's where the upshot to this ends. This to me, seems to apply way to sheerly, and on me at least didn't have a lot of color payoff. I typically look for cream shadows that work as both a base to anchor my shadows, and serve as a primer and even out my natural lid color, this failed to deliver on the latter criteria. I normally love most of their cream shadows, this one just didn't win me over though.

Unbelievably beautiful on me. It's a shimmery plummy taupe. I love the consistency of the benefit cream shadows. I have estee lauder and MAC and now Benefit. Benefit are my favourite!! They're so light and creamy to apply, they don't pull the lid and they stay!! I wore this one last night with MAC Bare study as a highligher and NYX Iced Mocha in the crease...beautiful combination!

Another impressive cream shadow from Benefit! Just like Benefit's Birthday Suit, this shadow does not crease, even in the summer humidity of Mississippi. It manages to hold up all day without creasing. The color is a pretty purple, but it is fairy light. I do wish it would show up more. Putting it on my bare eyelid, or over Estee Lauder's eye base does not change the color. My eyes are usually pretty blue, but this brings out the green in them. Unlike Birthday Suit, I think this would work well in all seasons. Be careful not to use a lot of force when you dip your finger in it because it is surprisingly soft and it does NOT feel like a solid cream. These are much better than NARS cream shadows and a few dollars cheaper. I will continue to explore more colors.

I didn't find the color to be very flattering on me. I have dark brown hair and fair skin, and I felt this made me look sickly. I have to apply another color on top of it, such as Birthday Suit to make it look like I'm not a heroin addict. It didn't apply well with a brush, making it difficult to apply if you have any sort of fingernails.

I came upon this by chance when my daughter was getting her makeup done for her birthday at Benefit. This color is so amazing, goes on effortlessly and can be used as a liner as well. You have to build slowly, and it fixes in place pretty quickly making it harder to blend, but stays put all day long. I will be getting this in other colors as well!

*UPDATE 7/10/09*: While still a nice color for brown eyes, this doesn't stay on very long at all without a primer. Wish it lasted longer. Taking off two lippies. ** Very pleasantly surprised. This is a nice, soft plummy-taupe with very subtle silvery shimmer color that is silky smooth and easily blendable. Nice by itself or as a base. For reference, I'm olive skin, dark brown hair, brown eyes.

Love this color! I never used to wear Benefit until I started working at a brow bar at an Ulta. I have hazel/green eyes (depends on what i wear) and this plum color really brings out the green in my eyes. Its the perfect plum/brown, it has a beautiful neutral look without being boring. I didn't think I'd like the creaseless cream shadows because every cream shadow I've ever used always creased. I'm a total believer. Very user friendly.

Can't say enough about the Creaseless Creams...they really stay put and the colours are great. Get Figgy is one of those hard-to-pin-down neutral brownish shades with a hint of purple. It blends in with - and leans to - whatever you might pair with it in either family. A really brainless look that you can slap on half asleep and look like you spent ages...I just apply with fingers and to me it's 'shapeable' into a subtle or more built-up look. Love these!

I love this color… It’s fantastic. It stays true, and doesn’t crease of fade, as long as I use a primer (which I always, always use, anyway). It is best to apply it a little at a time. It is both build able and blend able, but you have to take your time applying it. Also best to use a synthetic brush with this.
I’d probably buy it again, unless I find a purple somewhere else that I like even better, but right now, this is it!
