I have yet another Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow to show you guys. I really do love these things.

This looks similar to Carte Blanche which I don’t actually think is available anymore, apart from online stores that carry discontinued items.

As you can tell from the photo Carte Blanche is more of a golden brown shimmer and Busy Signal is a lot darker and has a slight redness to it as well as a gold shimmer. You probably don’t need to own both unless you collect them, like me, then it totally makes sense to have them both as they are different enough.

This is available for £14 from benefitcosmetics.com, Boots and Debenhams. It may seem expensive, which I guess it is but the formula of these are amazing and they really do last without creasing. Also you get quite a lot of product so it’ll last you months even if you use it every day!

Do you own any of these? Which one is your favourite? I really want to get hold of the Sephora exclusive ones but they don’t deliver to the UK and I can’t seem to find them anywhere else 😦 If anyone knows of any place I could get hold of them I’ll love you forever!

Baby pink is probably my favourite colour for blush, I’m really pale so I feel like this is a safe choice for me. I own quite a few from all different brands. The ones I’ll be showcasing today are Benefit Dandelion, Natural Collection Pink Cloud and MAC Well Dressed.

Dandelion comes in a 10g box and is available from benefitcosmetics.com, Boots and Debenhams for £23.50. Pink Cloud doesn’t say the amount on the pot but it is only available from Boots for a mere £1.99. Well Dressed comes in a 6g pot and is available from maccosmetics.com and MAC stores for £17.50. As you can see they vary is size and price quite a bit.

These are obviously applied much more heavily than I would on my face! They all look very similar in the pan but once swatched you can see that Well Dressed is completely different from the other two. It has much more shimmer and is much more pink.

Pink Cloud could be a dupe for Dandelion as they both turn a bit peachy once applied, however Dandelion does have a shimmer to it and Pink Cloud does not but I think it’s a good cheap alternative if you don’t want to shell out £23.50 or have sensitive skin as Dandelion is perfumed. Pink Cloud is fragrance free. Something to note with Pink Cloud is that it doesn’t last all day but for the price I don’t mind having to top up in the afternoon.

My favourite out of these three would have to be Well Dressed as I do love a bit of shimmer. It also comes out the most true to colour in the pan and the most pink!

Have you tried any of these blushes? Or do you have another baby pink blush that you always go for?
