Hi gorgeous! The closest match to the contour shadow in the big beautiful eyes kit is a blend of longwear powder shadow in nude swings and thanks a latte! xoxo, B
Your eye-ccomplice for glamour!
This portable kit is all you need to conceal, contour and line your eyes like a pro. Includes two brushes and an illustrated makeup lesson that shows you how in just four steps!
boi-ing in 02 medium | 1.8 g Net wt. 0.06 oz. • alabaster pink base shadow | 0.8 g Net wt 0.03 oz. • cocoa shimmer contour shadow | 0.8 g Net wt 0.03 oz. • rich chocolate brown liner shadow | 0.8 g Net wt 0.03 oz.
HOW TO APPLY
Line, define & look so fine.
Hey, good lookin’—forget cookin’. It’s time to make some eye contact. Start with the concealer brush to draw boi-ing on your dark circles & blend with fingertips—the warmth of your fingers makes blending cream concealers a cinch.
Sweep on the alabaster pink shadow base from lash line to brow bone with the contour brush. Apply the cocoa shimmer contour shadow along your natural eye crease, stopping ¼ inch past the outside edge. Draw a fine line of the rich chocolate brown liner shadow under the lower lashes, then repeat up top. Add a wink for good measure.

I love COCOA SHIMMER SHADOW.... Can I buy it separately? or when will Benefit start selling this eyeshadow? I have been buying Big Beautiful Eyes Kit for 2 years now because of the eyeshadows and one kit lasts 1-2 months.... I am desperate to find out if there are very close matching shadows or if the company will finally start selling these eyeshadows separately
Does this product last without a primer I don't have an eyeshadow primer at the moment but I really want this kit. Would it last all day?
I depends on your skin type, gorgeous. If you have oily skin, I would recommend trying "stay don't stray" stay-put primer for your shadows and concealers https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/view/stay-dont-stray
Can I swap out the concealer? I really like the shadows in this kit, but I have fair skin, and the concealer is too dark. While I would absolutely love it if Benefit offered this kit with the Boing 1 shade as well, I doubt that will happen. Instead, could I swap it myself? I could scrap the concealer out of the eye shadow palette and "smoosh" in my own Boing concealer? Not sure how the concealer would handle that. I travel a lot for my job and it would be so convenient to have a concealer I can actually use in this palette.
Hi gorgeous! We're sorry we don't offer this kit with a lighter concealer. You can try to swap it yourself, it shouldn't effect the concealer but i'm just not sure if you'll be able to get it to stay compact. It may get mixed up with the shadows and make a mess so it's totally up to you if you want to take this chance. B xo
Can I buy these colors outside of the kit? Or are there similar colors that would give the same look that I can buy separately? I have bought this kit three times now, but I'm finding that I run out of the eye shadows in the kit at different times because I use some more than others (for example, I don't use the dark brown every day but I do use the other two every day). I hate having to buy the whole kit when I run out of just one color. Are there other colors that are similar to the ones in this palette that I could buy separately? Thanks in advance!
Of course! Try our new! creaseless cream shadow in "r.s.v.p" or our new! longwear powder shadow in "pinky swear" http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/category/makeup/eyes/eyeshadow
Is this product recommended for dark, African American skin tones? I love the concept of this product but I am not sure if it will work with my complexion.
I'm not an expert by any means, but I think most of it would work great, except maybe the darker shade which is supposed to be used as the eyeliner might blend in a little too well with your skin instead of standing out like its supposed to. If you can, I would visit a Benefit counter and ask them to try it out on you
I have olive skin and I get really dark in summer and it works great for me. The bo-oing concealer might be the only issue is you want it just as a concealer. I think the colors would look really pretty on darker skin. I use the bo-oing on my eyelids as a base, then the first shadow and the contour, then I finish with the middle shadow. it's a really pretty color combo.
It will work for darker complexions, but the result will not be same. This is a contour kit, so the lit color and crease color mimick shades found on light to light-medium skin. The lid base color is much brighter than dark skin, so instead it will open up the eyes, and brighten the eye color.
This kit works well with all skin tones however if you are not sure, I would suggest going to one of our counters or boutiques to try the product before you purchase it.
