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!

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.

Although a true MAC paint pot lover, I confess to straying every now and then to another brands eyeshadow creme bases. This is one of the first I cheated with - and to this day I find it unique and a great creme shadow for the lid. I use it as both a base for other shadows and as a stand alone on days when I want to get out the door fast. This goes on me as a grayish color that brings out my hazel eyes. Seems to have equal staying power to the MAC pots and the color is unique from any other I have yet to find. I really like this with Vex or Club over it.

Overall i think I am slightly disappointed with this product. The actual product wasnt as pretty as what i swatch at Sephora. Perhaps its the lighting. I bought it and used it at home and wasnt pleased. It was just an ordinary pewter grey color and wasnt as pigmented to my liking. It sat on my dressing table for 2-3 months and one day I started using it as a base and on my outer V i used Mac's tempting eye shadow. These 2 colors complement each other very well. As for whether you think this is a nice color or not, its a personal preference. The gold tones didnt show up as nicely as I swatch it at the stores. As for the product itself, I would say the formula is ok. It creases on my ultra oily lids. I do put on an eye primer and the cream shadow but everything creases on me. I have BB, chanel...everything. But i believe it is gonna work fine for the ordinary person with normal eyelids.

I love this product, the color really flatters my blue eyes and pale skin and I am just really really into cool toned browns like that. I use it as a base sometimes but more often as a liner and it works amazingly. Quickly becoming a staple.

OK, I thought I write a review about this product... Oh MY!!! if only I could have taken them all back! I have quite a few of these eyeshadows: skinny jeans, busy signal, birthday suit, farhenheit fad, tartle tale... and they all crease like crazy and any of the colours do a disappearing act on me, in particular skinny jeans and busy signal and those are dark colours! I have tried may times in different ways... primers (UD, TF) no primer, with without eyecream, YSL touche eclat... everything... I have tried everything and the thing is, I do not have particular oily lids, for reference MAC eyeshadows stay fine on me. I would strongly recommend anyone to try them at the counter and walk away to see how they stay on you because for me these are the biggest make up waste of money I have ever had. I cannot return any of them because they were purchased at the airport duty free.

Did not like this. I hear people rave about this product all the time. It creased like crazy on me and didn't even last that long! It was also not cheap! Will not be buying these again!

Such a disappointment! This "creaseless" product creases on me. I've used many kinds of cream based eye shadows and this ranks amongst my bottom two (Shu Uemura being the other). Not only does this crease through the day, it also does not hold up to any sort of moisture at ALL - one of my eyes waters from time to time and this thing disappears as soon as water hits it. I give this product a 2 for nice colour and texture - very easy to blend (compare to say, MUFE Aqua Cream) and this particular colour looks great alone or as a base for a neutral smokey eye that's day time appropriate. Just such a shame it doesn't work for me, but it's a very individual thing (as apparent by so many rave reviews, which was the reason why I decided to give this a whirl). For reference, the cream eye shadows that do stay on me are: MAC Paint Pot, Shisiedo Hydro-Powder and MUFE Aqua Cream. I normally wear cream eye shadows over an eye shadow base like TFSI or LORAC Behind the Scenes eye primer. I paid $23 CAD for this item and there is 4.5g of product in the pot (compare to $21 CAD for MAC Paint Pot with 5.0g of product).

This is a very pretty colour, and when I swatch it on my hand it is drop dead gorgeous. Unfortunately, on my eyes it always pulls too far in the gold direction, so it becomes an antique gold shade. Pretty, but not as complex as it looks on my hand. My skin has a Mediterranean tone, lightly tan, so it might look more complex on someone cooler. Plus, I think it would be better if it were more shimmery rather than metallic, then it would have more dimension. MUFE's aqua cream in #2 Steel Taupe looks quite similar to this, maybe a bit more cool toned? I prefer Bobbi Brown's long wear cream shadow in Galaxy, since it is a bit more shimmery and cool toned.
I have very oily skin, and I don't think the staying power of Benefit's creaseless creams is all that good. They do crease. Similar to MAC Paint Pots, but I think MUFE's and BB's cream shadows crease a bit less. The problem with these is that they all have an opaque pearly finish, so the creasing is more noticeable than if they were sheer or shimmery. Still, the staying power is much better than a powder shadow, and I think it would be creaseless on someone with normal to dry skin.

Love the Benefit Creaseless Cream eyeshadows. The texture is really nice and the staying power is amazing (better than a Mac Paint Pot, not quite as good as a MakeUp For Ever Aqua Cream) but I love this color! Most silvers/grays are either too dirty looking or too bright and flashy for me, but this is flawless. It's a deep gunmetal gray with almost a taupe-y undertone and the slightest tinge of deep green. I love that it doesn't pull blue, like most silvery shades tend to do on me, and that it has a very lovely shimmer reflect. Applied sheerly this is divine for a very soft purple, gray (or even green) smokey eye--exactly what I want for fall--and applied more heavily it's wonderful for a nighttime look. It's very creamy and it doesn't dry quickly at all so it's easy to blend out both with fingers and with a brush. All of the CCE's wear very well on my lids with minimal creasing after about 8 or 9 hours, but they're certainly not waterproof and do fade a bit if they're worn for more than 10 hours. But all in all I would certainly recommend everyone trying out at least one of these if you're a fan of cream shadows or bases. They really are lovely products and the price is very reasonable compared to other similar products.

I'm a big fan of this eyeshadow. I love the colour - it's so wearable - as so many others here have said it can be sheer or built up to give more depth. I find it easy to work with and I'm no make up expert. I'm also pretty new to cream eyeshadows and am already wondering why it's taken me so long to discover them. A fan.

I actually rate the color a 5 because skinny jeans is GEORGEOUS!!!! But I'm not sure where benefit gets off saying it's creasless...negative! I still have to use a primer that prevents creasing. I also say it's pretty pricey, as most benefit products are. But it's a color I use on an almost daily basis and it pairs well with several other eyeshadow shades. I also don't care for the bulky glass packaging. I know I'm being critical here but the color is awesome so I think I'd deal with the bad to get the good!
