I hope you're all good in the hood! :-)
I popped into Boots recently, and I had a quick rummage through their 'Clearance' section and guess what I picked up... one of these babys! Yup, one of Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadows in the on-trend shade, Strut...
You know the best bit? It was reduced HALF PRICE, from £14 to £7... bargain! Someone had obviously wanted to try it before they bought it, because it had a few finger marks in it but it still had 98% of the product left, as you can see :)
It's a really wearable, glistening gunmetal shade that's perfect for a spin-off on the classic smokey eye ;-) Not only that, but the product is SO pigmented - Although it retails at £14, you just know it's going to last years as you only need to use the TINIEST amount!
So here's what Strut looks like on my eyes (closed):
I think it's a really striking colour that suits darker features like my own. I personally would think it's a bit harsh on fairer skintones (blue eyes, blonde hair!)
Here's a couple of full-face shots to see how it looks overall...

I am really impressed with this eye shadow, and it's well worth the bargain £7 I paid for it! The only other Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow I own is the shade RSVP, which I picked up for £1 at a car boot sale!
I NEED some more of these shadows in my life! There's 12 shades available to buy at the moment & I'd love to try...
- Birthday Suit (brushed chrome)
- Bunny Hop (sparkling champagne) and
- Busy Signal (venetian brown)
You can buy them on the newly re-vamped Benefit website for £14 here.
Have you tried Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadows before? If so, what's your favourite shade? If not, what do you use instead?
Let me know!
