Really pretty light bronze color. It's not too warm though so it looks natural and adds just the right amount of shimmer to the eyes. This is my go to eye look when i want something quick and easy.

I really wanted to like this cream shadow so, gave it a few tries.
My problem with this one if that the color is just too light on me.
I have fair (usually the second lightest foundation) skin and for some reason, this shade just never showed up on me the way I hoped it would.
I did like the packaging, the ease of use, and the fact that it lasted all day with no primer.

Great color for everyday, awesome lasting power as it really does not crease!

Goes on very nicely and stays put for a long period of time. Only complaint is that it does show up a bit too shimmery on my skin tone.

A lovely cream eyeshadow. Only creaseless though when applied into primer. A shimmery nude/white look which goes well with gel liner for a Hollywood glam look.
Like the pot. A little goes a long way. Limited colours though in this range, which is a shame.

I got this with a value package, its a travel size and even when ive used it a lot, i havent hit the bottom. You need so little to get the color. Yet, it creases, not doing what it is supposed to. I still give it 4 lippies because I like it more than a lot of cream shadows that crease but arent as good quality as this. The color is a soft bronzy-coffee color. Its perfect for having something without looking overdone

Beautiful colour - I can see why it's popular.
However I'm so disappointed. Creaseless? I think not! It creased on me after 4 hours. I can get 6-7 hours with MAC paint pots and a little longer with Estee Lauder. Even Maybelline 24hr tattoo pots lasted longer than the Benefit ones did. Shame really as I really love the shades that Benefit offers (I have RSVP as well).
I will try to continue using them as they are quite pricey and so pretty however I think I'll have to use them over Too Faced Shadow insurance or UD Primer (which kind of defeats the point).
If you have oily eyelids, don't expect "creaseless" wear. If you're lucky enough however to not have oily eyelids, go for it as they are really pretty colours and glide on like a dream.

I'm making the switch from powder to cream eyeshadows because I think they tend to look better and last longer on aging skin. I chose BeneFit's shadow because MAC's "Painterly" makes my eyelids look dry and lizard-like (although Painterly is a nicer neutral color). I'm not a huge fan of the color of "Birthday Suit" though. The SA at Sephora recommended it for me, but I wish I'd chosen a different shade. "Birthday Suit" looks dull on me and is expensive. I tend not to wear eyeshadow every day and rarely layer it with other colors, so maybe it would look nicer with a complementary color or two. Would repurchase BeneFit's cream shadows, just not in this color

I was very pleasantly surprised by this product, which was an impulse buy. It is a really nice "nicer than neutral" colour on my pale skin against my dark brown eyes. I like the cream formula, it is really, really long-lasting and goes on nicely with a brush or fingers. It definitely made me interested in checking out the other colours!

Oh, this is a wonderful product. Great neutral with nice shimmer and does it ever last. ( I still wear it with the Urban Decay potion). Nice consistency, too--wish they had a light pink shade.

This is a truly excellent product and hands down one of the best creme shadows out there. That said, I really don't care for this particular colour. It is a super shimmery taupe but loses it's charm on my skintone (MAC C7). It tends to look silvery and kind of dull. The formula requires you to apply in thin layers to build up the colour. By the time I can see Birthday Suit on my lids, it just looks crepe-y and unattractive.
This colour makes a great base and it really does not move one applied. I haven't experienced any creasing when used with a light layer of UDPP underneath. I find the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze to be a nice alternative (not a dupe but similar colour family). Adorable bird print packaging but just not worth the money for me.

I`m not an eye make-up aficionado, and never wear eyeliner, primers, layer multiple colors on the lid with the use of highlighters etc, because i`m too lazy- so this is a review for a basic shadow worn alone with mascara.The consistency of this creme shadow is superb. Applied with a finger it glides on like butter without tugging on your lid which is always a plus. Even though it has a moist texture, beware that is does slightly accentuate any fine lines and crepiness on over 40 skin( while not nearly as much as other creme shadows i`ve used, though) Additionally even though it has a nice shimmer, because it has a grey undertone, it doesn`t seem to draw much attention to small brown eyes, or brighten them or make them "pop" for that matter and if the outer portion of your eyelid has a slight downturn or sag, when worn alone the color appears to drag your eye down even more in certain lighting conditions for some reason. I`m still experimenting with it, but so far, it looks rather nondescript and i`m of the opinion that my light brown eyes look better/ younger, bigger and more alive, with the contrast of a naked skin than with this stuff on. I`ve seen it applied on other people and It does look amazing on those with blue or green eyes ( like the one in the photo above- looks stunning with her porcelain skin, black eyeliner and blue eyes) so i`d definitely recommend it for people in that category.

These cream shadows are amazing! I actually like them a little better than MAC paint pots because they are creamier and easier to apply but still last all day on my lids without creasing or budging at all. Just like paint pots I could sleep in these if I wanted to and they still wouldn't move. Benefits cream shadow also blends easy with other eye shadows. Birthday Suit is a beautiful shimmer silvery taupe shade on me that also has a little bronze. I like to put it all over my lid with satin taupe in the crease. This shade is nice to have for days when I just need a nice natural neutralish look that still looks put together.

My favorite of Benefit's creaseless cream shadows. This is a nice neutral taupe color. It's one of my go to shadows for days when I need a quick, simple eye look.
Applies smoothly and lasts all day for me although I always use an eye primer. The color can be built in layers in order to get a light wash of color or a more medium toned taupe.

I love Benefit Creaseless Cream shadows and this is probably my favorite, most versatile color. It's a great neutral to cool-toned neutral to wear as a lid color. Benefit describes it as a "brushed chrome" which I think is pretty accurate. The shade RSVP would be a good option for someone looking for a warmer everyday shade. I love these shadows because it's perfect for days when I don't want to spend a lot of time on makeup - I can swipe this on with my fingers and I'm good to go. I don't need a primer. These don't crease on me (maybe just a TINY bit after 10 hours, but who expects shadows to last that long anyway?).

I saw this product in the Seventeen magazine and thought it looked GORGEOUS on the model, so from then on I knew I had to have it. When I finally picked it up, I couldn't wait to try it. I smoothed it on, I thought it was kinda wet and oily, but maybe that's how it always was and it just had to set. After awhile, I noticed that it was really glittery without much color. Maybe I applied too much, or maybe I just didnt apply it right (I put it on with my fingers). Either way, it creased just a little bit. I don't use eye primer either, so that might be it. I'm not sure I would purchase this one again since it is not very pigmented, but its a lovely highlight color or a color that you use when you don't feel like wearing much makeup. You do get alot of product for $19, but the quality is what you have to focus on. This is a very sparkly and shimmery product, so just be cautious about that too. I have tan skin, and this did show up slightly on me, mostly just the shimmer. I would recommend this shade to girls with fairer skin.
**UPDATE** I figured out that you only use this on your lids, not your whole eye/eyebrow area. The trick is to layer it and use your fingers to get this really pretty champagne color. I moved the lippy thing up to 5 lippies because I use this almost everyday.

Beautiful light taupey champagne color. Brings out my green eyes and stays on all day.

I like this, but I dont' LOVE it. I tried using this as a stand-alone shadow with no primer or powder shadow in which it promptly creased. If I wear it over Mac's Painterly Paintpot and under a powder eyeshadow, it provides a vivid base that makes shadows I layer over it pop. I find that Mac Era and even Shroom do well over this- however, I find it difficult to find other coordinating shades in my wide array of eyeshadows. It's kind of an ashy beige gold which is less flattering on my skin than Benefit RSVP which I prefer. I like how you can layer it for a very sheer wash of color, or build it up easily for more vibrancy. The consistency is less thick and more oily-feeling than a Mac paintpot, which probably lends itself better as a base for other shadows than a primer itself. Not too pleased with the packaging though; after a few weeks of not using it, I opened up today (I keep the lid on it very tight) and there was a huge crack down the middle of the product. Even though I was able to revive it, it should not do this- Paintpots do not have this problem.

Pretty colour, more shimmery than Benefit's powder eyeshadow in 'fawn over me'. It's good, lasting power 4/5, but I just never used it that often which is why this only gets 3 lippies. 'Fawn over me' is subtler but very pretty and I wore it during new years eve.

Awesome stuff!!! I read reviews and went to go get.....I am so glad I did!t It really is creaseless and a perfect smoked eye or whatever you may be after! I have used everyday with different looks and it is great! It is great as a base or full on color...I also use my too faced primer but I always do...I have birthday suit and skinny jean and love them both the same! I never like to much shimmer but these are perfect! Go try them out! LeeAnn~
