Benefit’s R.S.V.P. & Gilded.

Hey dolls. I thought I’d do a quick review of the two products I got when attending the Benefit event last week. I received a sample size creaseless cream shadow/liner in R.S.V.P. & Gilded which is a tangerine gold highlighter. I have never tried these products before, nor swatched them at the Benefit stand so was very INTERESTED in how these would play up!

Because of the size, the product is ANNOYING to get out - but totally worth it. These really remind me of the MAC paint pots. Whenever I wear them & this I have to be really careful with the amount I put on because if I don’t then I still seem to get creasing. It seems to happen if you put too much on. Does this happen to anyone else? And this totally smells like marshmallows!

I’ve never thought of having a highlighter in a pencil. I usually just go with a powder or liquid based highlighter. Clearly, this can make it TRICKY to used when you compare it to others, but the colour is actually quite nice. I have a few Benefit pencil products which include BadGal, Eye Bright & It Stick.

The colour pigmentation, along with all Benefit products I find, is ON POINT. R.S.V.P is a gorgeous everyday colour with a hint of shimmer. It reminds me of Urban Decay’s Sin eye shadow. Gilded is a two toned orange-bronze highlighter…

… As you can see in this picture, at a different angle Gilded looks very bronze. I find this difficult to work with because it makes me feel like I’m blending it too much into my foundation, if that makes sense? But I quite like using it in the INNER V of my eye & as an eye LINER! It gives your eyes a lovely shimmer & great for a hint of sparkle :) I suppose you could use this as an eye shadow but I’d wear it with a primer as it tends to crease!

Here’s what they look like in flash. I think I can fairly say that I’m in love with R.S.V.P!! I’ve been wearing it almost every day! Can you just imagine if you layered it with a similar eye shadow. It would be so immense :) I would totally take it on holiday. I have a thing for wearing just ONE eye shadow all over my lid when I’m on vacation - is that just me?

Does anyone else use products where they’re NOT made for? I’d love to get some tips & try them out :)

    I really like RSVP! I use a primer underneath.. then RSVP.. and then another eyeshadow. It makes the eyeshadow on top really stand out!! I haven’t used Gilded as of yet - I’ll probably use it just like you :) x

      Deffo, a primer is best with RSVP as it’s better to be safe than sorry with creasing & Gilded is a lovely summer colour :) x

    so here is a tip I picked up about the creaseless eyeshadow when I worked in Benefit:
    Really mix the cream each time you use it so it becomes soft and then use your finger to dab it onto your eyelid. Use it a bit at a time and layer it. It works really well as a base especially for the smokey eye look.
    That should help prevent the creasing. :)

    I’m a real Benefit junkie and I’ve been considering grabbing myself a Gilded ever since I got myself hooked on their products - I think you may have just persuaded me to buy myself one!

    • Kaushal says:

      Hehe, go for it! I think it’s a lovely spring/summer colour - especially now that all the brights are coming out x

    I’ve just recently bought the Fearne Cotton Pencil highlighter. It is more of a shimmery gold xox
