Sit that luscious booty down, girl, because Benefit’s three new Creaseless Cream Shadows ($19) are all about summer, summer, summer time (remember that Fresh Prince song?).
Buckle your seat belt and hold the eff on!
Technically, the new shades belong to Benefit’s new spring 2009 collection, but they’ve got summer written all over ’em.
Not one to release traditional spring colors just because other companies are, Benefit skipped the usual spring pastels and went with almost tropical coral, gold and violet.

Like Benefit’s other Creaseless Creams Shadows, the new spring shades feel moist, creamy and apply with rich pigmentation. Color lasts all day sans fading or creasing, too, and they build really well, applying layer upon layer without cake or crust.
As far as value is concerned, they work as more than mere eyeshadows. They multitask like a mo’ fo, filling in for eyeliners and eyeshadow primers in a pinch.
The new colors include…
Flying Down To, a shimmery violet that looks like it’ll look good by itself on the lid or paired with pastel pinks and purples. OOH! Imagine it together with a glossy violet lip. HOTNESS! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Sippin’ N Dippin’, a shimmery peachy coral, moves my coral-loving soul. I have a feeling it’ll look *banging* on the eyes as a primer beneath last summer’s Chanel Oasis Quad. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Samba-dy Loves Me, a shimmery peachy gold, looks like it was born to pair with khakis, golds and bronze eyeshadow shades. I can’t wait to try it beneath last summer’s Dior 569 eyeshadow palette! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
I’m a huge fan of the Creaseless Creams! I can’t recommend them enough. They work a lot like MAC’s Paint Pots do, but I think they might even be a little easier to blend and apply. If you’re a MAC Paint Pot fan, keep your eyes peeled for Benefit’s Creaseless Creams.
WOW! It’s a stormy day out here in Nor Cal. It was even hailing a few minutes ago.
I’m just going to stare at these summery Benefit colors and pretend it’s the middle of July…
