I'm a huge fan of benefit makeup so far I haven't found a product that has disappointed me, i've always liked the look of the benefit world famous neutrals palettes but never picked one up so when I got this little beauty from my brother and his fiancé for my birthday I was more than excited, out of all the eyeshadow boxes that they do most glamorous nudes ever would have been the one that I picked up. most glamorous nudes ever is the palette with the warmest, golden tones in which floats my boat perfectly.
The kit contains four longwear powder eyeshadows:
- Call my buff - creamy pale shell
- Kiss me, i'm tipsy - spiced brown
- It's complicated - golden peach
- Gilt-y pleasure - golden sand
And two creaseless cream eyeshadows:
- Birthday suit - brushed chrome
- My two cents - polished copper
I've been reaching for this palette over all of my others recently and has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine, I like that the formula isn't too powdery instead the eyeshadows are buttery soft and blend together nicely which is what I look for in eyeshadows. i've especially fallen in love with the shades it's complicated and Kiss me, I'm tipsy as they're both unique to my eyeshadow collection and pair really nicely together, the pigmentation of these eyeshadows are fantastic. I like that they have offered two all over the lid colours, a definition colour and a highlight for the inner corners and brow bone, I feel that this really makes the product a good investment as you have everything you need in a neat little box, this palette is basically fool proof.
It's complicated all over the lid and kiss me, i'm tipsy in the crease
I do love the packaging, once again benefit put a quirky edge to what could be boring packaging but It's not very travel friendly as it's too bulky. I really liked that it included a tips and tricks leaflet attached to the top so if you're unsure how to use or where to place the eyeshadows it's a nifty little guide that tells you how-to, I ripped out the guide and kept it to the side as it kept falling down and I was worried that it was going to damage the eyeshadows.
I already own a benefit creaseless cream eyeshadow in R.S.V.P and i've fallen in love with it, it seriously doesn't budge off the eyelids so when I saw that the kit contained two mini samples sizes I was beyond excited. the shade 'my two cents' is the one that caught my eye the most as i'm currently loving the copper eye look.
Overall I'm completely loving this eye kit and would recommend it to anyone that wants to try some products from benefit - it's a good place to start!
