Benefit World Famous Neutrals - Sexiest Nudes Ever

Tonight I have one of Benefit's new World Famous Neutrals palettes to share with you! I've been wearing the Sexiest Nudes Ever* shadows every day for the last week, and I've been really impressed. Here's how Sephora describes this palette: 

"What it is:

An eyeshadow kit featuring the sexiest nudes ever!

What it does:

These dramatic, daring eyeshadows in award-winning creaseless creams and new longwear powder shadows make sexy totally wearable! The universally flattering shades layer beautifully—and the tips and tricks show you how to create looks for daytime and playtime.

This set contains:

- 4 x 0.04 oz longwear powder shadows in Milk It! (pearly white), Pause for Applause (soft lilac), Blingo! (brilliant silver), Raincheck? (smoky amethyst)

- 2 x 0.11 oz creaseless cream shadows in Bikini-Tini (oyster pink), Holy Smokes! (smoldering charcoal)"

I really like that this palette contains easy to wear colours but they're still fun and pretty. This isn't just another nude palette filled with variations of browns. This palette contains two creaseless cream shadow/liners in the shades Holy Smokes! and Bikini-tini. I already love the formula of Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadows, and both of these shades are gorgeous. I like that Benefit included one lighter and one darker shade in this palette, so you can create a daytime and night-time look.

Left to Right: Bikini-tini, Holy Smokes!, Milk It!, Raincheck?, Pause for Applause, Blingo!

I've been loving using Bikini-tini all over my lid, followed by Raincheck? on my outer corner and crease, Pause for Applause on my inner corner, Blingo! on my inner corner, and Milk It! as a highlighter. 
I then line my eyes with MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Liner #13 Matte Black (reviewed here), and then I used Benefit's They're Real on my lashes. I also used Bikini-tini to line my lower lash line. I think this look is perfect for every-day, but you can also deepen the colour by using Holy Smokes! as a base instead of Bikini-tini. 

The Creaseless Cream Shadows make for great bases, and help keep the powder shadows last all day long. I love the versatility of this palette, and as always the packaging is super cute. This palette is $36 CAD, and it is a Sephora exclusive. I think that's a very reasonable price for a higher-end brand such as Benefit.  

Have you picked up any of the three World Famous Neutrals palettes from Benefit? :)
