Benefit World Famous Neutrals | Review & Swatches


I think I have mentioned in a previous post how much of a die hard fan I am of neutral eye shadows. Apart from the obvious that they go with well, pretty much everything, they are so versatile and so easy peasy to use. So it was a no brainer for me to go ahead and try out Benefit's new World Famous Neutrals eye shadow sets. I was going to buy all three, buttttt my heart was particularly set on the Easiest Nudes palette (like I said easy peeeaaaasy!), the colours looked the most appealing out of the three in my opinion.


These bad girls retail for about $44 in Australia, a tad on the pricey side but are value for money I guess considering it has 6 shadows and probably a better way for trying out Benefit eyeshadows than buying them separately.

They come in a super cute box, and when I first opened it up, it reminded me of a book? Kinda, maybe? Anyways, they are very similar in design to the Too Faced eye shadow palette boxes and in my opinion is a tad bulky. The mirror of the palette is covered by a Tips and Tricks booklet that opens up to two tutorials or suggestion of how you can apply these shadows for day and night. They can also be teared off so you have the option of having the mirror clearly visible.


Each palette comes with two mini creaseless cream shadows, which is great as I've recently become a cream shadows fan. The eye shadows themselves are a pretty decent size and I think will last quite a while (hopefully).


In the palette (or jar in the case of the cream shadows), the colours appear quite pigmented and dark in colour. However, against my skin tone I think they are fairly muted and much lighter than I thought they would turn out. Despite that, they are fairly smooth and easy to apply and I can see myself using these colours almost as often as my Naked Basics Palette. They are long lasting and the creams don't smudge at all (considering I have oily lids it must be pretty good). Out of the 6, my favourites are definitely Thanks a Latte and r.s.v.p.



Have you tried out the new Benefit World Famous Neutrals palettes? Which is your favourite?
