Benefit World Famous Neutrals Easiest Nudes Ever... Eyeshadow Kit | Review & Swatches

We've recently became obsessed with Benefit after trying out their skin care range. So next up for us to try was some Benefit makeup and what could be better than an eyeshadow kit? Just look at the packaging! I've never seen an eyeshadow kit that looked so beautiful as this one does. I love wearing nuetural colours on my eyes so this kit was perfect for me.

In the kit are four long wear powder shadows including two highlighting shades called 'call my buff' and 'pinky swear'. The other two powder shadows are 'thanks a latte' and 'quick, look busy' which are matte brown shades. The kit also includes two creaseless cream shadows in 'rsvp' and 'no pressure!' 'No pressure!' is definitely my favourite eyeshadow of the bunch and I can see myself reaching for this everyday.

The cream eyeshadows glide onto the lid effortlessly and I think they blend so well. At first, I did think the formula felt a little greasy but that wouldn't stop me from buying more cream eyeshadows from Benefit. I haven't tried out many cream eyeshadows before but I'm so suprised at how amazing the staying power is. The cream shadows are so pigmented too and they don't crease at all during the day.

The longwearing eyeshadows are also great but they do take a lot of time to build up as they could be more pigmented, especially the lighter colours like 'rsvp'. That being said, the longwearing shadows last all day long and look beautiful when they're applied.

DAYTIME LOOK
The kit even has 'how to' cards and this one I'm wearing is the day time look. 'R.s.v.p' makes the perfect base for a natural illuminating shadow and I love how 'thanks a latte' defines my eye. This look is so simple yet it looks like I've made effort with my eye makeup. The day time look is just a gorgeous understated eye makeup look that I know I'll wear a lot!

NIGHT TIME LOOK
This is one of my favourite eye makeup looks ever! I love wearing brown toned eyeshadow and this looks perfect. I can't believe how amazing the cream eyeshadow blended onto my eyelid. Although the longwearing eyeshadow took a while to build up, I love how pigmented it looked when I finished applying it. This kit isn't called the easiest nudes for nothing, applying this makeup look was so easy and barely took any time at all!

I am so happy with this kit. This was my first ever Benefit eye makeup kit and I can see myself buying many more eye products in the future. At £23.50, I think this is a great kit for any Benefit makeup newbie like us. The creaseless cream eyeshadows are definitely my favourites in the kit as they are pigmented and long lasting. I do wish the longwearing eyeshadows were more pigmented but they look great if you build them up. The packaging is so girly and will look stunning your makeup stash. The 'how to' cards are amazing and I didn't even expect the kit to come with makeup guides. This is a kit that I think every nuetral eyeshadow lover should try!

Have you ever tried a Benefit eyeshadow kit? What do you think of Benefit eye makeup products?
Love Rachel & Leah, x
