The makeup guru at my local Sephora told me I could use my clean fingertips, but I don't think the shadow spreads as nice as it does with a brush. I recommend an angled brush, but you can blend with your fingertips.

I am quite the germaphobe but I would have to disagree with Alraina
who says that using your finger will make your product go bad not to mention build up bacteria in your product.

As long as you follow the number one rule (Always use clean fingers/wash hands before use or use a hand sanitizer) and as long as you do NOT share your makeup with other individuals, your makeup will be just fine and last just as long whether you use a brush or your finger.

One thing I do like to do however, is to either use a sanitizing wipe or hand sanitizer on a tissue and rub over My eye makeup products/lipsticks/liners etc. after each use before sealing up and putting away in My makeup bag.

Clean application every time. :-)

As far as the question is concerned, I like to use a brush (hard angle brush such as one you would find in Benefits Smokin eyes kit) for the liner and My finger for the shadow application and blending. Be sure to use the finger with the softest tip as the skin on the eye and beneath the eye is the thinnest and most delicate skin on your body. Be gentle with these areas and never rub or tug in a harsh manner when dealing with such a delicate area.

One of the fun things about makeup is experimenting, so do just that and see how many looks you can achieve using both your fingertip and your brush and go with that.

You know YOU best and what works for you best. Have fun out there! :-)

This product is so versatile because it can applied with your fingers if you're on the go or with a brush if you have more time. I personally find it easier to apply with my fingers, but if you prefer using a brush I'd recommend using the benefit talent brush it's great.

Always use a brush, you can contaminate your make up and it will make it go bad faster not to mention give you infections and harbor lots of bacteria in your make up. Some times sponge applicators work really well for these types of eye shadows for me. But MAC #217 is the best one have found to work and I love it, it has really fine, denesly packed bristles in a oval shape, perfect application everytime!

With cream shadows, I find that it's easier to apply with a brush and blend with my ring finger.

Either way works great for me.But i would recommend using a brush just because it goes on thinner and smoother.Its helpful to blend different ones together with your finger though.

I have hazel eyes with lots of green in the center and a dark rim on the outer part of my eye and I think the flatter me also emphasizes the green in my eyes because it has a pinkish mauve tint which looks great for hazel eyes.

I would go with Get Figgy (shimmery plum) or Strut (smokey denim). Both would look great with hazel eyes and will add tons of dimension to your eyes.

A complementary color like a reddish, pink, or purple shade will make the green in your eyes appear brighter. but be careful because a red shade can make your eyes appear tired as well.

I have not done that but I don't think it would be too hard to do, I think with the texture of the product you would still get enough on and be able to blend.

I like to use the benefit talent brush with these shadows, because it can be used to pack it on the lid, blend in the crease, or line underneath. I cannot line with this shadow without a brush, however I have pat it onto my lid and blended with my finger before. If you just want the color on your lids, your finger will work just fine. These shadows are the best, and so easy to work with whether you use a brush or your finger.

Yes! I use UDPP and then R.S.V.P. under shadows and get really great wear time, longer than if I'd just used UDPP. On its own, it creases on me, but with the Primer Potion, I get about 9 or 10 hours of wear.

I say YES! I have very oily skin and eyelids (ugh) and I love these shadows. I wear them more than powder eyeshadow now, because they REALLY stay on! I will say that I use an eyeshadow primer (Too Faced's Shadow Insurance) and it really stays put- no creases, no sliding off, no nothing!

Actually, YES. I have horribly oily eyelids (I have to use Urban Decay shadow primer or in a few hours any shadow is a mess) But this stuff doesn't budge on me! Granted, I'm not glopping it on. But if you put a normal amount, it stays.

I currently have Skinny Jeans, Strut, Honey Bunny, and Birthday Suit. My eyes are dark brown and all of these colors work well with them. Brown eyes can honestly pull off anything. But if you want your eyes to pop out more, strut is nice because the blue enhances the golden tones found in brown eyes. But I like all 4 to achieve all kinds of looks (smokey, soft smokey, natural, etc.)

Dear Sister,
Any of the Benefit colors will work: Flatter Me, Get Figgy, Marry Up and Bunny Hop are terrific on my dark brown eyes. Since my skin is oily I need a shadow that won't wilt or crease. This is the stuff. And I'm an "advanced" woman so I know my make up. Good Luck !!! Hope you find a color that works for you.

I absolutely love these cream shadows! I have been looking for years for a creaseless, blendable shadow. I love the Busy Signal # 990580 for the dramatic color and Tattle Tale # 990507 for the highlight under the eyebrows. This is the best ever! It doesn't crease up or fade. It is perfect! I have blue eyes and the Busy Signal looks great.

I own both paint pots and BeneFit's cream shadows and find them to be similar products. A lot of BeneFit's cream shadows (if not all) are frosted. MAC has about 3 paint pots with cream finishes and maybe one with a satin finish. All of the rest of the paint pots have frost finish. Most of the colorful ones are limited edition too, so if you are want a certain color (green, purple, pink, coral, etc.), you'd better hope that you find it in a CCO or that MAC releases it in one of their many collections during the year. MAC's paint points do not claim to be creaseless, but they make great bases as does BeneFit's cream shadows. Both products can go on sheer and are buildable. MAC does give you 0.17 oz for 16.50 compared to BeneFit's 0.16 oz for $19. It all depends on what you are looking for.

Wow. I paid $19 buck for one RSVP. That being said you do not want old product. My first RSVP was pretty hard when I opened the box for the first time and I exchanged for a new one at Sephora. This product does not have a long shelf life, and you need to keep the lid really sealed (and then again, it does not have a long shelf life)
