Benefit Femme Metale Review

I purchased this Benefit Femme Metale set during Sephora’s VIB sale promotion the retail price is $38 but with my discount, it brought the price down to $30.40. This is a limited edition and exclusively available at Sephora. I like the name of this set, it suits it so perfectly.

This set contains 3 full-sized creaseless cream eyeshadows:
Taupe-aztic is metallic bronzy gold with gold micro-shimmers.
Platinum is a metallic white with pearly white micro-shimmers.
Plum-ing For Gold is a metallic plum with gold and pink micro-shimmers.

I was interested in trying out the cream shadows and these colors looked very appealing to me. At first, I was worried that the cream shadows may crease on me because they feel so creamy. I also like the fact that they are also easy to blend. I put it to the test last night and wore the plum color for about 6 hours. Under normal condition, I did not experience any creasing or fading and I didn’t even use a primer. However, to be on the safe side, if you have oily lids, it would be best to use a primer first and set it with a powder eyeshadow just in case. You can apply them with your fingers (make sure they are clean first) or you can use an eyeshadow brush, preferably one with synthetic fibers. I would personally recommend using a brush because it’s more sanitary and easier to blend. If using fingers, you may risk picking up too much product, which could cause creasing, and make it harder to blend. So far I really like them and will look forward to do some festive looks with these since the colors look so holiday-ish.  

This set also includes 3 mini eyeliners:
Gem-N-Eye is an olive green color with gold shimmers
Steel Her Date is a steal blue with blue shimmers
Blinged is a metallic silver.

The eyeliners apply smoothly and are pretty pigmented. They are also long-wearing, budge-proof, and smudge proof. I tried to rubbed them off with my finger after swatching them and they stayed strong. They have all the qualities that I look for in an eyeliner.

Overall, I am very happy with these products and they are definitely worth checking out. The regular price of one Benefit cream eyeshadow is $19.00 so with three you already have $57.00 worth plus you also get 3 eyeliners. $38.00 for the set is definitely a great buy.

  1. I love benefit's cream shadow. I actually own about 5 of them and love it! I mainly use them as primers though. But they work great. My favorite is the R.S.V.P color.
