Benefit World Famous Neutrals.

Tuesday, 23 September 2014


When it comes to eye shadow, I almost always wear neutral colours. I'm drawn to warm gold and bronze colours because they suit my skin tone best, so obviously, this eye shadow set from Benefit had my name written all over it. I actually had a voucher from an event I'd been to, and was so surprised that I'd be able to get 4 Benefit eye shadows and two cream shadows for just £23.50! 

(Swatches L to R) It's Complicated | Call my Bluff |  Kiss Me, I'm Tipsy | Gilt-y Pleasure 

So here's what eye shadows are in the set .. 

Call My Bluff: This one is for the brow bone and inner corners. It's a cream shade with a golden shimmer that normally I wouldn't go for, but it goes really well with the other shades in the palette.
It's Complicated: A golden peach colour that reminds me of Mac 'All That Glitters', but better. It's a beautiful warm shade that brightens up the skin and looks gorgeous with coral blusher. I love this!
Kiss Me, I'm Tipsy: A dark brown with an ever-so-subtle glitter in it. I've been using this as a crease colour and also on the lash line. Another must-have for a neutral palette!  
Gilt-y Pleasure: A light bronze/gold that's just the perfect day time colour for me. Looks lovely all over the lids on it's own with just the perfect amount of shimmer. 

 My Two Cents | Birthday Suit

The set also comes with two cream shadow pots ...

My Two Cents: A warm, peachy colour that works really well with 'it's complicated'. The colour is quite strong and works really well on it's own and as a base for bronze shades too. 
Birthday Suit: A cooler toned brown. The colour pay off isn't great with this one and it's not much on it's own. It does looks lovely in the look below and makes the eye shadow last longer too.


One of the best things about the Benefit sets are these mini tutorials that come with it. I love both of these looks and I've been wearing the 'day time' one loads recently! SO (after this huge post) .. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a neutral palette with lots of potential for different looks. This is going to be a winner on holiday for me, perfect for carrying around and has all the shades I need for day and night. Love love love! 

Have any of you tried this palette?

  1. I've never tried this palette because I am not much of an eyeshadow person (mainly because I have no idea how to apply and blend properly) but I do want to get into it more and try. This palette looks lovely! Such pretty colors.
