Sometimes, when I hear someone say “I wanna”, I think of “Ivana”. When I hear “I gotta”, I think of this box set.
It comes in a nifty box.
The set contains 3 eyeshadows and 2 Creaseless Cream Shadows.
The cream shadows:
I’ll start with the powder eyeshadows.
As much as I love the colors, the quality of Purple Haze and Canopy are terrible. They apply very sheer and are not very pigmented. The fallout was what bothered me the most: I looked like a raccoon after using these shadows. It’s so pitiful, especially for a company like Benefit. Nothing I tried could stop the massive fallout. I used three different primers. The shadows are so powdery and soft they hardly clung to my skin. And the staying power? Nada!
Spiced Brandy is the best out of the trio, but it’s not superb. It’s a standard shimmery brown with bronze tones.
Foiled Creaseless Cream
Foiled is a metallic taupe. It reminds me of Birthday Suit.
Flash Creaseless Cream
Flash is a metallic champagne yellow.
I simply adore Creaseless Cream Shadows. They last for hours and make incredible eye bases. I love using Foiled and Flash.
No grumbling about these!
My verdict: I feel that the two amazing cream shadows are not enough of a reason to pay for this set. I got this for $24 at http://www.sephora.com. The powder eyeshadows are just crummy crummy crummy.
