I am a complete eyeshadow novice, I stick to safe neutral colours and my eyeshadow experience goes as far as the MUA undressed palette and don't even get me started on brushes! I was using my MUA pallete almost everyday and had hit pan on most of the shades that I dare use so decided that even though I am clueless when it comes to application I was actually getting somewhere and trying to make more of an effort than an eyeliner flick with my eye makeup. I had my heart set on building up my own MAC pallette but before moving on to the big boys this little beauty came into my life.
The kit that I chose was Most Glamorous Nudes although there are also Easiest Nudes and Sexiest Nudes and the shades vary from kit to kit. In true Benefit style the presentation is flawless and the little box they come in is adorable. Included in the kit are two creaseless cream shadows and four long wear powder shadows, the powder shadows come in a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. The cream shadows are more of a base colour and although it says creaseless after a 9-5 day there is a little creasing. The powder shades are really easy to work with and so blendable the only thing I would say is that I wish they were a tad more pigmented and then they would be perfect! The lasting power is pretty good, they're not perfect at the end of the day but they're definitely still there. The shades included are so versatile and the different looks you could make out of these six are endless. Inside the flap on the lid is a step by step guide for a day time and night time look using the shades and a handy little mirror (I couldn't get a picture of this without catching a glimpse of my ugly mug in the mirror but it's there, I promise!) Overall I am really, really happy with this little kit and it has made applying eyeshadow fool proof - even for me! So if you're not overly confident with eyeshadows then this is the perfect kit to start you off on your way towards that 15 pan MAC pallete!
What other looks could I make with these shades?
