Khaki eyeshadow duo

The colors are really beautiful, they come in beautiful duos. I got the khaki color which is a green satin shadow and a bronzer shimmer shadow.

The eyeshadow itself is pigmented and really creamy to apply, the colors apply like a dream however I did not like the applicator!! I would much rather use a brush. The applicator for me was way too small and fiddley and I didn't like how it applied the eyeshadows, I had to kind of swipe in 3 strokes and it ended up really patchy and just not nice on me. I think Benefit had a good idea with this but for me it just missed the mark

Beyond Nude

I got this palette in the 2018 - A New You BBBE. It's the first Benefit product I've ever tried so I was excited.

The packaging is lovely - a cute silver compact.

My colours are Beyond Nude - a medium brown coupled with a shimmery light brown.

So I copied the application from the pamphlet inside. It didn't work exactly as it said for me though and I think it's easier to use my other brushes. It's a very innovative idea to apply the two shades together! In any case, the colour is great, the same as I usually wear, so I'm happy with that. The colour lasts for hours.

I will enjoy using this palette until it runs out, but at $45 I'm not likely to repurchase.

Easy and so pretty

The concept alone with this product is intriguing. When you take it out of the packaging, the case itself is gorgeous with a cute little mirror, and when you open the case there's a finger length strip of contrasting eyeshadows, and the little applicator on the side.

The Eye Shadow Duo really is just one step, and if you're looking for a more dramatic look you can build on the colour by sweeping over the eye a few more times. I used the Naughty Neutral palette - it is a perfect neutral of chocolate and an apricot/gold shade, and a lovely soft sheen & satin finish It worked really well for my complexion and eyes.

The first application was a bit clumsy, but I started by wiping the applicator evenly across the eyeshadow and then dabbing it from the inner eye working out and then run the applicator across the eye again to smooth it out. In using it a few weeks now, I have got it down to just one sweep of each eye for my daytime makeup.

The eyeshadow lasts all day without any visible fade and the bonus with this type of application - I had no eye shadow dust on my face when applying.

For the makeup novice, or someone that wants an easy eye shadow routine with little time or effort required, this product is great.

The price is on the high side, but to counter that, is the ease, the professional looking finish and the fact that it lasts all day. If it lasts quite a few applications it's probably worth the money. On special it would be well worth giving this eyeshadow a go!

Tips: Don't start too close in the inner eye or it will end up on your nose

Wipe the applicator clean afterwards otherwise there's a bit of build up on the applicator from oils on your skin and product build up

Oh, and the colour tones sound gorgeous - chocolate and apricot!

It sounds fab. I like the idea of it being easy!

Average

I bought this thinking it would be quick and easy to slap on for everyday use. The little applicator doesn’t pick up both colours very well and I wouldn’t say it fit into the socket of your eye very well either. I had to go back over with a brush in each colour to make it look wearable. The shadow is nice, very creamy and pigmented. Would reccomend if you wanted to use your own brush but there are other cheaper shadows which would probably do the same job. Not worth the money

Gem of eye shadows

When you open the box and pull out a shiny silver gem shaped case it definitely stands out from my other products. Which has a mirror in it and also an applicator. It also has a sheet of information with a lot of fine print.

I love the idea that you just swipe across the sponge applicator it comes with and then swipe it onto your eyelids and your done how ever if your like me i can’t seem to get both sides the same which drives me nuts. So I prefer to just use my own brushes to apply them.

I love the colours a beautiful chocolate brown and shimmering gold are a perfect pair. They seem to last ages on your eyes and don’t crease or flake off.

I’m not to sure I would repurchase because of the price personally.
