Product Face off: Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows VS MakeUp Forever Aqua Creams

For the longest time Benefit Creaseless Cream shadows have been my favorite cream shadow, but I had heard a lot about the Make Up Forever Aqua Creams and really wanted to try them out. I finally bit the bullet and purchased two of them and have tested them out for the past two weeks.

Both shadows are extremely pigmented and creamy. They both apply very well and blend fairly easily. The Benefit CCS blend a little easier and I think that is due to the fact that they don't have the waterproof feature that the MUFE Aqua Creams have. Because the MUFE Aqua Creams are waterproof, I feel that they set a lot quicker which makes them a little more difficult to work with when trying to blend two together.

Both brands are very long lasting, but I find that over time the MUFE Aqua Creams tend to crease a bit. It might be because the humidity where I live has been out of control, but the Benefit CCS don't crease at all, even when worn at work. They both can be used on their own or as a base under powder shadow. The MUFE Aqua Creams do tend to last a bit longer in general due to the fact that they are waterproof. They only come off when I use my makeup remover before I wash my face at night.

I haven't had an issue with the CCS drying out at all yet and I have had most of them for almost a year now. Since I just got the MUFE ones not too long ago I can't attest to the longevity of the product in the pot. I do think that the packaging might have something to do with it and since the MUFE are in plastic I worry where as the CCS are in glass. 

I love both of these products and really want to try more of the MUFE since I have 4 of the Benefit ones. I think the MUFE Aqua Creams are perfect for the summer since they are quick, easy and waterproof, but my favorites are the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows. I will always love these.
