Unsung Hero: Benefit Silky finish eyeshadow in Rich Beach

You know those kids in your class who sit in the corner shivering when it's 100 degrees outside because they're so antisocial? The kids who are really smart but have no friends? These are the kids that end up rolling in dough when they grow up because they invent the next great flavor of Baskin Robbins ice cream. This kid sounds a little bit like me... HA! In the words of Mac Davis; "It's hard to be humble". My point is... there are some products in this world who have yet to feel the love of others, despite their amazingness. An example of that type of product is Benefit's silky finish eyeshadow in Rich Beach. This eyeshadow definitely lives up to its claims, and I think it deserves a little love.
In this picture, you see the adorable packaging of the eyeshadow. Fascinating Olivia.... Please take note that the eyeshadow appears to be hiding in my floral pillow, hence the shivering kid in the corner joke.

This is a picture of the eyeshadow open. Wow, really?! Never would've guessed.... The lighting is making the eyeshadow pull a bit too coppery, but it's really a golden taupy shimmery pan of happiness. It somehow reminds me of cinnamon toast crunch. I might add that I have never in my life had cinnamon toast crunch, so please don't ask me why I think that.

This is a swatch of the lovely beach of richness. This is as true to color as it gets.

And here it is on my wonderful eyeball. I wore it in the crease with urban decay loaded in the outer corner and maui wowie on the lid. I hope you all are doing well and have a wonderful day. Oh, and if you're reading this mom, can we pweeeeaaaaase go to sephora this weekend. Ok I'm done, buh bye.

-xoxo, Gossip Girl... or Olivia. Whatever floats your boat.
