With Benefits Sippin n Dippin Creaseless Cream eyeshadow, you are literally dipping your finger (I prefer a clean brush-call me a hygiene freak) into a pot of peachy gold awesomeness which by the way ‘stays put ‘ just like Benefit describes it!
“Blendable, beautiful…this do-it-all shadow lines, shades, and contours your eyes with a lovely crease-proof, smudge-proof formula. Mix & match…layer on for the desired depth…go as sheer or as dramatic as you like with buildable color. These gorgeous creams come in 12 blendable shades that can be worn alone or mixed for endless custom looks. You’ll love the glass jar…remember to close it tight to keep your cream shadow creamy & dreamy!”
Funny, huh?? I totally loved the description as well as the shadow along with the jar and the packaging it comes in. Now I don’t use this as a shadow coz one swipe does make me look ill-in fact I wouldn’t recommend this shade to fair/warm skinned folks but this might look lovely on dusky beauties. Of course you can always build up the colour, you just have to let the first coat settle for 30 seconds. To me this particular shade is a variant of the MAC paint pot and is my go to eye shadow base of late. Use any eyeshadow/concealer brush and the colour applies smooth and creamy over the lids.
The shadow is available in 12 creamy shades and needless to say I couldn’t help ogling at the swatches on their website-

Now if you feel a gravitational pull to fancy names just like me you’ll be totally sold on these-hats off to The Balm and Benefit for being so witty and fresh in the names department. If you haven’t tried any Benefit products before you can order one of their limited edition kits online(they ship international)and I’d say they are totally worth the moolah.
So, what’s my take on this peachy parfait lady? Let’s focus on the plus points first.
a) I’m a sucker for multi-use products and this one is perfect as a base/shadow/liner.
b) Application is smooth, be it with a brush or with fingers.
c) Long wearing and sets easily.
d) Does not crease and shadows stay on all day when used as base.
e) As is the case with most eye primers this transforms your shadows and lends a more vibrant look.
To the not so appealing stuff :
a) Not available in India but they do have worldwide shipping.(Free shipping over $115-great if you are planning on a spree with friends)
b) As I mentioned earlier this sets easily, so blending should be super quick.
c) You need a good remover to take this off completely-my HG remover is good ol’ olive oilJ
d) This particular shade does not work well as a shadow on my skin tone (NC 35 ) when used alone. Not a major con, can be solved by using a darker/brighter outer v/crease colour.
Price- USD 19 (approx INR 950)
Would I repurchase? Yes, but in a different colour (I’m eyeing strut next)
Recommendation: Benefits Sippin n Dippin is a multpurpose peachy gold eyeshadow which doubles up as a base , shadow or a liner. Staying true to its name, it does not crease and lasts the entire day. It does dry out really quickly though, so you need to be very quick with this!
