I’m oily, oily, oily. Maybe just oily, oily (2 oilies). And I’m inept, inept, inept when it comes to “blending.”
Power shadows elude me. So I’ve been drawn to cream eyeshadows, since you just kind smear a little and poof, they’re on. But with the oily, oily, oily the cream shadows have always tended to slide right off.
This stuff though - this stuff - stays PUT like glue. And it does actually blend if you go out on a limb and smush it up with other colors.
This is Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow and I love it, it’s my go-to, day to day eyeshadow. It’s so good at being creaseless and smearproof and even waterproof (I’ve taken it ocean swimming without a hitch) that yes, of course it stays put, put it keeps back all the oil I’m producing so I look not like someone who’s managed to get eye shadow over my greasy eyelids but like someone who’s not oily at all!
I just keep buying new colors from the collection (rather then looking at other brands, most of which I’ve tried at some point) as they really are universally flattering and you can get depth of color or opacity by just applying more.
What you’ll find with a lot of cream shadows is that they stay put, but are just too dry to spread or blend properly – and on the other end of the spectrum are the ones that are just too creamy and slide off within an hour or so & crease up in your eyelid. Not so with Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow. Lurvs!
Now, I do pair it with a certain eye shadow primer to get that kind of all-day coverage. I’ll let you know what that primer is tomorrow.
