Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow 'Birthday Suit' - Reviewed!

I'm a big fan of cream primers. I'm always looking for a way of making my eyeshadows stay bright and not creasing throughout the day. There really doesn't seem to be any drugstore options that actually work well, I really want to try the Maybeline Color Tattoos but who knows when we will be getting those in the UK. So onto the review of the Benefit Creaseless Creams, this is the second one I have tried and I really like them.
I feel like with every Benefit product I try I can't get over how nice the packaging is, this one is no different with the simple black and white theme with swallows, very pretty. It comes in a glass jar which I like because it means it is likey likey to dry out.
'Birthday Suit' is lovely neutral colour, it as shades of gold, brown and even a hint of green it in. These apply very smoothly, even smoother than the MAC Paint Pots which I also love. This are also very buildable, you can apply a small amount for a day look and go for a darker look at night. This is a very versatile shade which lasts all day without creasing at all. You can also use these as a liner which again lasts very well on the eyes.Here's a swatch:
I've been wearing this everyday since I got it, it is so easy to wear and looks great with just a brown shadow in the crease. I can create a really nice eye look with these and it takes hardly any time to do which is great if you are in a rush in the morning!

The only thing I don't like about these is that they don't have any matte shades which is a shame but I definitely would recomend them. The do retail for £14.00 which is a bit steap but I think they are worth the money. You can buy them on Feel Unique with free delivery here.
