AMW Reviews: Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Flatter Me

Because I've always share to everyone how lazy I am with eyeshadow application!  I finally found a match!  A Cream eyeshadow that blends so easily and at the same time, doesn't need a lot of effort to apply!  One swipe of color, lets me feel "oh so ready" to face the world!


My first Benefit Creaseless Cream 
Shadow/Liner is Flatter Me

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner says ---
  • A versatile cream shadow/liner for eyes.
  • Contains crease-proof, smudge-proof formula.
  • Incredibily outlines, defines, shades and contours eyes.
  • Gives sheer or dramatic makeup effect with build-able color.
  • Easily glides onto skin and long wearing
Weight: 4.5g/0.16oz

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Housed in a glass packaging which makes it maintain its freshness longer.
  • Very pigmented and creamy, easy to blend.
  • Makes a good eyeshadow base.
  • Can be work alone or underneath an eyeshadow.
  • Can make eyeshadow crease-free and last longer.
  • Can enhance eyeshadow color.
  • The shimmer looks nice, not over the top glittery.
  • Can be layered on to intensify shade. 
  • Dries up quickly on the lid area and stays the whole day!
  • Does not irritate my eyes and give allergic reactions.
Cons
  • Shades available are mostly on the neutral shade with a lot of shimmer.  I hope they can come up with colorful matte and shimmery versions!
  • Not available locally.
  • The pot makes it unhygienic to dip with your fingers.  But for me, its the best way to use the product.
Overall
A lot of you would probably want me to compare this to the famous MAC Paint Pots!  I haven't used a lot, but I can definitely comment that the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner are creamier than MAC Paintpots!  The only downside is its lack shade variety, and of course, the fact that Benefit cosmetics aren't found easily on malls!  

Worth the price I pay for and definitely worth the long wait (from P.O.) as I found myself reaching out to this daily!  

Tips
  • If you have amazingly oily lids, you can still use your dependable eye primer prior to Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner application.
  • Always close the lid tight to prevent product from drying up.
  • Since applying with finger is the best trick, make sure your fingers are clean prior to usage!
  • If you plan to pack on the shade, make sure each layer is blended well before you add on 2nd, 3rd or 4th layer.
  • You can always share with a friend as this tiny jar can last!  Just make sure to house this in a similar glass packaging to prevent this from drying up.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  I want all the shades Strawberrynet offers!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who wants to wash of color on the lids minus the "blending".  Eyeshadow wearers who wants a budge-proof eyeshadow base!  

Where to purchase and how much?
I bought mine at Strawberrynet for $17.00 (approx $731.00) Free Shipping Worldwide.



A photo to show how
I gently apply it all over my lids


Applied on its own without base or eyeshadow


Flatter Me gives a nice shimmer glow on the eye area!
People just can't seem to understand if you have eyeshadow on or not!

  7. This does look good sis specially is this can be used as an eye primer. It's always nice to find a product that prevents eyeshadows from creasing. I've tried quite a few but abandoned them eventually hahahaha! As you know, I'm not the one to stick to certain beauty regimes hahahaha! However, based on this post/review, I think I'll give Benefit counter a visit next time I'm in Boots or House of Fraser. Thanks for sharing sis... Muah!!!
