Ever since the release of the Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow* I've been intrigued by them but unfortunately I could never justify spending £15.50 on one eyeshadow shade - especially on a student budget! I was really excited when I saw this little gem in my goodie bag and an event a couple of months ago!
RSVP is such a great, versatile shade that looks great on it's own or as a base for powder eyeshadows. Once blended out on the lid it looks a lot lighter than in the pan and is a lovely shimmery shade with tones of pink. It's not a bold colour but adds a little bit of something to the eye for a natural and subtle look. It works really well as a single shade, brightening and opening up the eye, but is also a great base for neutral eyeshadow shades.
I've been applying it using my finger and then blending it out with a buffing brush which I find works really well. It also layers really well using this method so you can get your desired coverage really easily. Although this eyeshadow is said to be 'creaseless' I have found it to crease on some occasions. Not in a way that is overly noticeable, but still noticeable none the less. It is however really easy to blend back out again so if this does happen a quick sweep over the eyelid will sort it out! When use as a base for powder eyeshadows it's great! It keeps the shadow in place without letting it crease and also allows for easy blending of the colours. Before trying this product I thought £15.50 was a little too much for a single eyeshadow but after trying it and becoming aware of it being great not only as a single eyeshadow, but also as a base colour, I think I would happily purchase another shade!
Have you tried this or any other shade from this range?
