Benefit hasn’t released eyeliner pencils before, so I can’t compare these to existing products to see if they’re fullsize; but at .04 ounces of product per pencil, they’re on par with Urban Decay’s full-size liner pencils. The cream shadows are all full-size, and since those normally cost $19 a piece, you’re getting three cream shadows and three liner pencils for the price of two cream shadows. It’s a good deal.
This kit contained:
These three cream shadows seemed a bit more pigmented than most of the other Benefit cream shadows, even the new ones. I don't know if that's just because of the "metallic" aspect (which isn't all that pronounced), or something else; but I like it.
The eye pencils were a mixture. Blinged was a bright, rich silver. Gem-n-eye and Steel Her Date both had definite black undertones, and left behind some black when I wiped them off my arm after swatching. Steel Her Date didn't have much blue to it, though, while Gem-n-eye had very nice metallic green effects. The pencils applied easily without my having to use a lot of pressure, so they won't tug at the eyelid; and while I haven't yet tested them for durability, they thus far seem similar to Sephora's Flashy Eye Pencils with a bit more pronounced of a metallic effect.
If you have wanted to give Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadows a try, this is an excellent kit to get started - both in terms of value and in terms of quality of the cream shadows. This kit is a Sephora exclusive.
