Benefit Gilded

First of all, I must admit that I have owned this product for quite some time.  I think Benefit has redone their chubby pencil packaging and made them slimmer, but don't quote me on that.

As mentioned right up there, this is a chubby pencil.  That means it will be really really difficult to make a thin line with this.

This pencil is best used on the waterline, as an all over shadow, or smudged under the lash line.  I prefer to use it the third was as I'm kind of a sucker for gold under my eyes.  In terms of golds, this one does not disappoint.  It is a warm, kind of peachy gold.

This pencil is super creamy which means that it has a tendency to crease when used as an all over shadow.  Unless you have insanely dry lids, I wouldn't recommend using it in the way without setting it with a powder, even over a primer.  Wear time is average.  I usually have to reapply which is fine with me.

Overall, lovely gold and a staple for all gold lovers.
