Yay, so I finally got around to getting a cream eyeshadow I've been coveting: Benefit Cosmetic's Skinny Jeans. It's a pretty taupey/pewter shade with subtle shimmer, and a potentially good base for a smokey eye. It's not entirely creaseless for me, however--darn you, oily lids! D;

The cream eyeshadow is very smooth and easy to apply. It feels sort of... well, greasy for a sec until it's dried.
And here's the swatch on my arm. It's a totally awesome color, but that just very well be due to my inherent love of dark, smokey taupes (or pewter--whatever the heck it is. Really, it's got a lot going on to it that photos simply can't capture!) This was a great find for me at $15.99 on Ebay, as it sells for $19 at Sephora.com. Gotta love how it came packaged with a little booklet of instructions on how to apply it as a shadow or liner too. ^^
So did this eyeshadow meet my expectations? Eh, not so much. After all, I expected it to be creaseless on my lids like it ought to, but that didn't turn out so hot. But after paying $16 bucks for it, I'm definitely going to make an effort to utilize it the best I can.
