It appears that Tarte RSVP’d for Benefit’s popular Creaseless Cream in R.S.V.P, and, while at the release party, stole the idea for the color, and ran with it all the way to the beach — or the Seashore, to be more precise.
Just how close is Tarte’s new Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Seashell Pink to Benefit Creaseless Cream in R.S.V.P.? The short answer: close.
Both shimmery pink cream eyeshadows look darn near like sisters in their pots and swatches, but I think if you look closely at both of them, you’ll see richer peach pigments in Seashell Pink.

Tarte Seashell Pink on eyes
This was my first experience with one of Tarte’s Cream Eyeshadows, and I’m thoroughly impressed. It layers well, blends easily and also resists water and creasing, even without the help of a primer.
I only wish Tarte included more product for the price. The 0.1-oz. pot is downright frustrating for $22.80. For $19 from Benefit, you get a larger 0.16-oz. pot of R.S.V.P. Sure, in Tarte’s case you also get an eye brush as part of a package deal on QVC.com, but I’d trade the brush for a little more product.
Value aside, I love the color and the way Tarte’s Seashell performs. And if you need an eye brush, it’s an even better deal.
PRICE: $22.80 each
