I was looking for something easy to swipe over my lids that would brighten up my eyes during the week. I didn't want something glittery, but I wanted something shimmery. I got Tattle Tale and it was exactly what i was looking for. It gives me that bright eyed look without leaving glitter all over my face. It also smells yummy, but not overpowering. This is the first BeneFit cream shadow I've purchased, but now I'm excited to get the others!

I love everything from BeneFit. The packaging is playful, yet the products work well on me. I have a lot of stuff from BeneFit and one of my favorites is this creaseless e/s. It's not totally creaseless, but better than many other cream e/s. I bought Flatter Me for my light/medium skin tone. It is the PERFECT shade for me. It's a bit light reflecting but with no glitters. That's exactly what I want. The only bad thing is that it dries pretty fast in the pot.

i love love love these creamy eye shadows, i bought almost every color except maybe 2 that i knew i would never wear. i didn't believe that they wouldn't crease until i bought and tried them out, they feel super light weight on my lid as well, a little on the expensive side for such a small container but definitely worth the money. i dont mind the sparkle, i think it helps make you look youthful without looking tacky or like your trying too hard.

Before trying BeneFit's Creaseless Cream shadows, I had never met a cream shadow I liked. Either the available colors didn't work, they were difficult to apply or they creased before I even left the house for the day. Once upon a time I was into dark grey shadows and routinely used MAC "Print" (a pressed powder shadow). After a long break, I've gone back to that and decided, on a whim to try the BeneFit Creaseless Cream in "Strut", which is described as a "smoky denim" color. I don't see any real blue in it and would describe it more as a deep, shimmery pewter. Application is easy (I use the BeneFit brush meant for that purpose and can get good definition, layering and control over the application). It lasts all day and into the evening. Even if I work out and sweat a lot, I get no smearing or running of the shadow, which is always a concern since I work out almost every day after work and fear the "Tammy Faye" effect, which is even worse with dark grey or black color cosmetics. It hasn't happened yet. Even better, this is the only shimmery grey shadow that doesn't seem to give my otherwise oily lids an unhealthy crepe-paper like textural appearance. I have since started purchasing more of the BeneFit Creaseless Cream shadows and consider them my new "Holy Grail" eye shadow product. This is a relief since it's moderately price an my other HG color cosmetic products tend, unfortunately, to always come at La Prairie or Chantecaille prices!

These shadows are my HG shadows! You can use these every day- day or night and look amazing! They are so quick fast and easy that its not hard to look great all the time. They need to make more colors because I have almost every shade!

I have nearly the entire Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner collection. I've pretty much been using BeneFit's CCS/L exclusively when I go to school because with the way my new schedule is set up, I'm don't go every day, but when I do, I'm on campus all day long. For someone with oily lids that manage to turn any eye shadow I use into a creased mess within 5 hours, having a 12 hour day is a nightmare. These shadows have really solved that problem for me, as, now, my eye makeup shows signs of the beginning of creasing only around hour 10 (that's a feat for me). I use the light neutrals (Lana's line) as a basecoat/primer, and I use the medium/darker neutrals for my lid up to my crease, and then I use either Bobbi Brown's gel liner or one of the dark neutrals (Betty's line) to line. Then, I top off with BeneFit's She-Laq on top of my liner (another God-send for me--a total must if I don't want raccoon eyes, even if I use heavy duty liners, but that's another review) and I finish off with tubing mascara (either Blinc's Kiss Me or Featherlash). These shadows have turned into an important part of my non-budging eye-makeup routine. These work better than any primer I've used. They aren't as budge-proof as my MAC Shadesticks, but the difference is negligible for me and I prefer the CCS/L's colors and smoother consistency. (Having to warm up the shadestick so that it doesn't tug on my eyelid is a pain that I can avoid by using these shadows.) They go on satin-smooth (especially with the new formula), and I use BeneFit's Talent Brush (love this brush for these shadows) to apply onto my lower lid and to apply liner--fingers work well for all-over. I would totally repurchase, as the colors are flattering, as well, for many skintones. I, myself, am of Asian descent with yellow undertones, and I've had no problem using any of the shades myself. I don't know how these shadows compare with cream shadows from Stila or Bobbi Brown, but if anybody has had experience and can compare/contrast those shadows with BeneFit's, please do let me know how you think they compare.

These are great shadows, they really don't crease and they stay put all day! I have somewhat oily lids and the MAC shadows i used would allways be creased or just complely gone halfway through the day. It really suprised me that these shadows worked so well, sometimes its hit and miss for me with BeneFit products. These can be used as a base as well, and they come in georgous colours, so far i have towne car, stilletto and busy signal. The only thing i dislike about this product is that its kind of hard to blend if you dont blend it right away, basicly once there on, their not moving. Love these.
Edit: ok, ok. so i guess these do crease when its hot out :(. sorrrry guyzzz!

WOW - these are amazing! They really don't crease! Shade by shade I have...
Birthday Suit - great everyday shade, a light golden-beige color, not too shimmery and certainly not tacky.
R.S.V.P. - another shade perfect for everyday use. A light, champagne pink color... gorgeous.
Tattle Tale - a light, creamy color with a little gold and less shimmer than the prior two... HG highlighter with Miss Moon (Showoffs) worn over!! Plus, this one smells like butterscotch... crazy but fun. I haven't noticed a scent in the other colors.
Skinny Jeans - silvery grey with gold shimmer... okay for everyday if only worn in the corners or crease (looks great with Birthday suit & R.S.V.P.). If I am going out, I'll use a light hand and do a smoky eye (but probably not as intense as what most wear). I also use it to smudge my BadGal pencil to soften up the harshness of the black and add a little sparkle.
Stiletto - A rich, eggplanty color. I used to like this color more than I do now... it seems like a bit much. If I use only a sheer layer it makes a great base for Ruby Doo (Showoffs).
Strut - I have never liked this and stiff am not sure why I purchased. It's a dark, shimmery, smoky cobalt blue. I have used it on others before but do not like it on myself. It looks good paired with Skinny Jeans and used in the corners and smudged into black eyeliner if you want some drama... and especially if you have blue eyes.
All in all these are wonderful!! I don't know how I would live without... seriously.

I LOVE these!! If I could buy all of them, I would, but I'm only a college girl and need to eat. I currently have Busy Signal, Marry Up, and Towne Car. I'm thinking about buying Stiletto next. I dropped one once, and it popped out, and the lid broke, so be careful! I hope that they don't dry out ever, because I would be devastated. I also bought the brush, and I think it was a good buy. Someone please buy me their whole line!!!
Edit: I just bought Stiletto and Get Figgy. The two look GREAT together, especially with Towne Car. I have found, though, that the new spring line is much smoother in consistency and the others are drier. Towne Car has its own consistency altogether. I'm not sure how to describe it. They're not bad, but I prefer the new spring line's consistency.

I have been dying to try this e/s for awhile now - they look so pretty in the pots on display, but I also read such good reviews on this site.....so I had to try it!!!! I wound up purchasing birthday suit ( a taupe champagne shimmer; a good highlighter or all over eye color) and skinny jeans (the darker color - a pewter, silvery shimmer; could be an eyeliner above and/or below the eye). I didn't buy the brush but I may in the future - using an avon liner brush for now and it works just fine.
These cream shadows have totally impressed me. Everything from the satiny feel to the staying power - the colors set in no time at all and you can totally layer them for a softer or more colorful vibe.
I do have slightly oily lids, so when i wore these colors the other day to work with no primer, I really noticed that by the 10th hour the colors had slightly creased. This wasn't a shock and didn't even deter me from wearing again or buying me (I plan to!).
I'll have to wait to see if the pots dry out - it's a pretty big pot of color considering you only need a little bit. I'd like a different kind of container for these - don't like the pots very much (too bulky) -- maybe a kit would be good - several colors all together with a brush? Sounds like a good idea to me! I love these and plan to buy more!
