I love this. A pewtery greenish colour with subtle gold undertones, this looks great as a base under most shadows as it's so versatile. It really brings out the colour of greens, grey, and blues. Very easy to apply with just a fingertip, it has an almost moussy texture and blends out really well. I plan on applying it more precisely with a brush to see how it stands on it's own. I've been wearing it for over 9 hours now and so far no creasing. If I want a day to night-time smokey look that I can apply and not worry about, I wear Skinny Jeans.

I got this with the "Girls Night" set and I love it. It is such a pretty colour and I pair it with MAC's Smoke & Diamonds e/s for daytime and it is absolutely gorgeous. It applies and blends well. No complaints and I would definitely repurchase this :)

these are pretty good products. unfortunately mine has dried out but i am trying to salvage it, because i have this in the color rsvp and it is so pretty and great for layering with other shadows, as well as a highlight.

This is such a great product! The color is a pewter like color, but it has so many other colors put into it that it can look like a different color depending on what you put with it. It can look gray, blue, greenish, goldish... It is such a pretty color and I think it would look great with any eye color.
I like that I can use this w/o a base or with one, and it doesn't crease or fade. The pigmentation is also great. I give 2 thumbs up!

I love this color! It's so unique, I've yet to find anything like it. I am so glad I bought this benefit product. Not only are these creamy but they are actually pigmented and have amazing staying power! i find that many cream eyeshadows may feel great but once you put them on, you have faint shimmer and hardly any color.
these have buildable coverage which is something i enjoy in products. i can put one swipe on and have a nice wash of color or wait and put another swipe on and intensify the look.
i will definitely be buying more of these

These Benefit Creaseless Cream eye shadow/liners are really top quality! Skinny Jeans is a really pretty pewter/taupe color. It's perfect for a subtle day color blending with others, and also perfect for creating a smokey eye at night with darker colors. Skinny Jeans really is a very versatile color. I use my UDPP under this since I have very oily eyelids and don't have any problems with this formula creasing. I can't say how it works without the UDPP underneath it though. They blend like a dream and the color is pretty and adds tons of dimension to the eyes with its shimmer. Only a little bit is needed to apply the perfect amount of color since the formula is so creamy. You can layer on more color for a more dramatic effect, without worrying about it creasing or fading. I don't use these as eyeliners, but love them as eye shadows. These are available at your local Benefit counter, Sephora, or on benefitcosmetics.com for $19. They are on the expensive side, but they last for a very long time. Tip: to prevent them from drying out, store them upside down so that the moisture is evenly distributed.

Creaseless creams are the best!! They really don't crease! I don't even use a primer under this and it stays all day and I have oily lids. I'm not a huge fan of the skinny jeans color, it seems very grey to me which isn't a great match for my brown eyes. But I think it would be stunning with blue eyes!

I LOVEE this stuff. Like everyone else has already said, it's a pewter/taupe/greyish color that makes my green eyes POP. It looks fabulous color on its on for an easy smokey eye.. I love to wear just this, blended out with a 217 with a black eyeshadow smudged into my lashes and Satin Taupe blended under my lower lashes for a simple, quick daytime smokey eye. MAC Satin Taupe also looks lovely on top. It's a very versatile, long lasting cream shadow that works great for both daytime and dramatic smokey eyes.
FYI -> I have dry eyes and I DO find this is hard to blend if I use too much primer underneath, so be careful with that. But if NEVER creases if you use a proper base (I use MAC Painterly)

this color is pretty much the exact same as the silvery/grey in the sexy smoky eyes palette. this goes on a little more sheer in color than it looks in the pot. you can build the intensity with more and more product. lasting power is great, and i dont use UDPP with this product. color is great for a evening smoky eye with tons of eyeliner, or just very pretty and sexy for the daytime too.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Blond, Curly, Medium Eyes: Green
I love it!! It is a very pretty all over wash or in the crease for a smokey effect. I got a great deal on this with the girls night in set but i would definitely pay the full price! Wonderful product :)

After reading raves for Skinny Jeans on the boards and liking the way the color looked online, I went and tested the product at Sephora. The color is beautiful taupey/grey goodness. The formula is a little thin, less creamy than mac paint pots but still pigmented. I bought a pot of it thinking the true test would be how it would hold up during a regular day of wear. Would it be able to stay crease-free like my mac paint pots? It did! I've been wearing this for a few months now and I've never had a problem with creasing. I love wearing this under MAC smoke & diamonds e/s for a smoky look. I won't hesitate to repurchase when I run out.

I'm so happy with this cream e/s that I'm going to purchase more to collect different colors. I was very loyal to mac paint pots for a very long time. However, the pp only lasted for about 5+ hours then it started to crease. THIS, on the other end, lasted for 9+!!! I got home from work, checked my makeup and it was perfectly fine as if it was the morning I leave the house! =) I can't be any happier than that! I do have oily lids so most of the e/s primers just don't cut it for me. The color is a beautiful cool-tone pewter. Love it!!!

Got it a few days ago and tried it yesterday.
Love the quality of the product, love the package, love itīs softness and ease to blend, but... I STILL CANīT GUESS WHAT COLOUR IT REALLY IS!!
Grey? Greeny gray? It also looks a bit blue.... STRANGE, but nice anyway

One of the better Benefit products .. I've got a few Creaseless Cream Shadows, and Skinny Jeans is my all time favorite! This is exactly what I've been looking for in an eyeshadow base to use for smokey eyes! Skinny Jeans is a steel grey with heavy taupe undertones and a little hint of blue. It's definitely unique and a shade I've never before seen .. it's a stunner for sure! It applies very smooth, blends like butter and never creases on me. This was my first creaseless cream, and I've bought a few more since and am equally happy with them all! HUGE rave from me!!

I love this cream shadow. It is a blue greyish color that looks fabulous as a blended out liner. I apply it with my MAC 219 pencil brush around my entire eye, and then just smudge outwards. It is a great sultry look for nights out. Best part is that once it sets, it stays put. Would definitely buy again.

This color looks too flat to wear by itself as an eyeshadow. It looks matte gray cream. It is WAY too light to use as a eyeliner even on my fair skin. The only use i can think of is to use it as an e/s base for smokey eye look. I was excited to get it because it looks like BB galaxy. It looks sooo shimmery when i tested it on my hands. But once on the lids, the shimmers were no where to be found. It also creases at the end of the day. Returned this to sephora.

LOVE this shadow.
I go this in the "girls night in" set so I'm pretty sure that I worked out cheaper than the normal $25+ CAN that this costs on it's own, which in my opinion is a ridiculous price!!
The colour is something special, kinda blue, kinda green kinda grey...for this reason, it can pass for a serious blended out smokey eye with just one easy swipe accross your lids. SUPER SIMPLE, yet looks quite professional and classy... like you've spent hours putting your "face on"!
The texture is lovely, but that fact that the container is EXACTLY the same as the HiP liner/jellybalm jar(ie. the $8 drug store brand) makes me quite sad about the high price tag.
I guess in this case, you really are paying for the unique colour and the Benefit "name" (whatever that is worth to you).

This eyeshadow looks AMAZING w/ nude lips. I naturally have bright red lips and need to coat it with MAC's Frost Gel Lipstick to pull off the skinny jeans. The color is amazing. It does not crease but it does get a little bit chalky =( The packaging is an A+, so cute! Hum, the quality is great but I think you can get something really similar at MAC for a few dollars cheaper! I bought the eyeshadow for $19.99 and there were some very nice ones at mac for only $16.

I'll be the first to admit, generally speaking, I'm not really all that much of a BeneFit fan. Too many gimmicky, unnecessary variations on a single product ... I mean, come ON. Boi-ing AND Erase Paste AND Lyin' Eyes? Some Kind-A-Gorgeous AND Play Sticks AND Hello Flawless?
I recognise the need for variation when it comes to skin tone (High Beam and Moon Beam spring to mind), but too many Benefit products do essentially the same job. They're just packaged in different ways. BeneFit would perhaps, ahem, 'benefit' from a more streamlined range of improved quality, at least where their foundations and concealers are concerned.
But when BeneFit get it right, they get it dead right, and I can confidently state that their Creaseless Cream Shadows are right up there with the very best eyeshadows and highlighters on the market. Needless to say, I own several and it's impossible to review them all, so I'm focussing on just one.
Skinny Jeans is a lovely, shimmery pewter shade that compliments all eye colours. It's sheer yet sufficiently pigmented to create a more dramatic look when needed. The shade is neutral enough to wear on its own during the day, and buildable enough for super-glam night-time eyes when teamed with a highlighter shade such as Tattle Tale. The formula feels pleasant, the product is easy to apply and blend and the little glass pots are cute as a button.
Many shades in the range compliment each other, allowing you to experiment with different combinations for night and day. Just like having your own little paint set for eyes!
To reiterate, I'm not a fan of BeneFit's foundations and concealers. But the Creaseless Cream Shadows, the Silky/Full-Finish lipsticks and the High Beam or Moon Beam highlighters are top drawer and would form a worthy part of any individual's beauty arsenal.

Skinny jeans is a great neutral shimmery pewter eye shadow which, even though I use it as an eye base to intensify my eye shadow, I would not be afraid to wear alone as well. It wears pretty long, I'd say a respectable 6-8 hours depending on level of activity, but I wasn't blown away by it's endurance because mine definitely fades after a really long day. I mainly love skinny jeans because of it's universally flattering color on my skintone, and looks amazing against my brown eyes. Even though I've had my skinny jeans for about a year now and it's still going strong and not dried out at all, I feel like cream eyeshadows are still more difficult to get smooth and blended evenly across your eye than powder. I always feel that the shape of it on one eye is never the same on the other (which is why I always top it with powder so I can blend the color out).
