Benefit's World Famous Neutrals Eye Kits

When the UK release date for the new Benefit World Famous Neutrals came around, I'm pretty sure all Benefit fans let out squeals of excitement - I know I did. The one thing I was yet to try from Benefit was any of their eyeshadows, so I was excited by the look of these gorgeous gypsy palettes, each promising to be perfect for a neutral eye.

There are three kits and each comes with four Longwear powder eyeshadows and two Creaseless Cream eyeshadows, as well as a handy little Tips & Tricks booklet, and a built in mirror. So perfect for anyone from beginners to makeup professionals, and even more perfect for on the go!

*Apologies for the mis-spelling of Pinky Swear in the swatches!

Eyenessa's Easiest Nudes Ever helps you get your Goddess on with a mix of nude, rose gold and bronzed shades. Call My Buff might look yellow in the kit, but it's a very subtle nude shade on. Thanks a Latte has a touch of shimmer and is a very light neutral bronze shade. Pinky Swear is a pretty pale pink and Quick, Look Busy is a deeper bronze shade. As for the Creaseless Cream shadows, R.S.V.P is a very pretty deep rose gold shade, with No Pressure! being a warmer chocolate bronze. I think this is a perfectly wearable kit for any skin tone, perfect for day time but easy to mix up to a night look with a pop of Quick, Look Busy in the crease.

Eyenessa's Sexiest Nudes Ever are more dramatic and daring, making sexy totally wearable! With cool toned white and silver shimmer shades, a deep and sultry mauve shade and a beautiful deep pink for the Longwear powder shadows, and a gorgeous yellow gold and deep charcoal grey for the Creaseless Cream shadows, this kit is certainly more for those a fan of the smokey eye and sure to be the perfect kit for a night out!

My favourite kit of the three is Eyenessa's Most Glamorous Nudes Ever. When they arrived, I thought that Eyenessa's Sexiest Nudes Ever would be my favourite - I'm a self confessed addict of a smokey eye. But Eyenessa's Most Glamorous Nudes Ever really won me over. Perfect for a truly bronzed eye, with incredibly wearable shades for day or night, this kit is the kit I think will be the biggest hit for the warmer months ahead, the perfect kit to compliment a tan and one which will bring a bit of glamour anyone.

Call My Buff is a subtle cream nude shade, perfect for all over the lid. Kiss Me, I'm Tipsy is my favourite shade from the kit, a beautiful warm chocolate brown with bronze shimmer to it. It's Complicated is a perfect champagne pink shade and reminds me very much of a favourite French Connection eyeshadow I had growing up, and Guil-y Pleasure is a perfect pop of gold for adding a touch of Cleopatra like glamour to your eyes. The Creasless Cream shadows are the perfect base, Birthday Suit a light brown with touches of rose, and My Two Cents, a beautiful gold bronze.

I think these kits are brilliant! For my first time trying Benefit eyeshadows, both powder and cream, I am really impressed. I find the Creaseless Cream shadows work perfectly as a base and the Longwear Powder shadows have fab pigmentation with a dreamy soft and easy to blend formula. Lasting power wise, these last just as long as my beloved Urban Decay shadows, holding up all day with no problem! These kits are perfect for anyone and I also think they'd make a lovely gift. You can happily get away with just one kit, but if you're an eyeshadow addict like me, having all three is a dream! What I love most about these kits is that all the shades in the kits are so wearable, go so well together and also the price. For just £23.50 a kit, they are super affordable! You can find them on the Benefit website here! Which one will you be picking up?

  4. I love benefit (especially the packaging) but find it a tad on the pricey side here, especially compared the the us prices.

    These kits look great though, and are definitely nice value for money, I think the easiest nudes are my favourites!

    1. Really? I think the opposite. For six shadows I think the price is fab! But then again, eyeshadows are along with lipsticks my favourite things to buy and use so I suppose to me it doesn't matter much. I do agree it's annoying when there's a big difference between UK and US prices! :( xo

  9. I purchased mine in Milan Italy because, already for the gorgeous package alone i had to have it so it was my little holiday treat. I bought the sexiest nudes and every time i wear them i get a lot of compliments. You can wear them quite subtle without going full out for a smokey eye. I usually put pause for applause all over my lid; blend rain check into the crease and then use milk it as a highlighter. I was a bit unhappy with the cream shadow since they ended up in my crease really fast. However the powdered ones have amazing staying powder indeed. Great post, you make me want to buy the others too ;)
