Makeup Review: Benefit

In one of earlier posts Makeup Products from Benefit I talked about some products I bought from Benefit, and as promised I am going to review them now! I know that I’ve posted about the around 2 months ago, but hey I had to TRY the products more than once. I had to see how I felt about them and how they worked under different climate, makeup and how long they would last. So yah I needed to experiment with them to come up with my view and experience with these products. Just to point out I have been using Benefit for almost 3 years, then again this was the first time I used these specific products. On another note, Benefit is one of my favourite makeup BRANDS!

The productst that I am reviewing:

You Rebel (Lite)

You Rebel is a tinted moisturiser that contains SPF 15. It moisturises the skin very well and I felt that my skin was hydrated all day, and I wore it for more than 9 hours. However, if you have red areas around your face it won’t cover them. I found that when I used any kind of press-powder with this tinted moisturiser it doesn’t look cakey.Just to point out this product has a undertone smell of rose-water, well for me it isn’t a problem but I know there are girls that don’t like the smell of rose-water. I  ACTUALLY LIKE IT!  For girls that are interested in this product, it only comes in two shades; the one above that is the lighter shade and the other is the darker shade that comes in a red tube. The darker shade is for people that are tanned or it could work as a fake tanner. Would I buy this product again? Well I am not sure, I would like to look around more for a tinted moisturiser that has more coverage.

Erase Paste

I AM MADLY IN LOVE WITH IS CONCEALER! Just as the name implies ERASE, it does erase any blemishes on the face. The blemishes can be from read areas, dark circles and pimples that are on the face or neck. I used this product with; foundation, tinted moisturiser or directly on my skin and it worked great.I even found out that you don’t need to use press-powder for this concealer to set it in it sets in very well without it. On the other hand if I was going to a party or something I do use press-powder just in case :P. This concealer comes in 3 different shades; fair, medium and deep. I use fair because I like how I can even use it under my eyes to brighten them. Another AMAZING thing is that this concealer comes with a spatula so you don’t have to dip your fingers in. This is a concealer would be used for years to come!

Girl Meets Pearl

I decided to try this highlighter because many have recommended it. I have tried the other highlighters from Benefit High Beam and Moon Beam, the High Beam just like Girl Meets Pearl it is a pinkish highlighter, whereas the Moon Beam is more of a golden apricot color. I personally found that the Girl Meets Peal is more shimmery than High Beam and it’s more liquidly. It took me sometime before I actually tried this product in different settings. I realized that if I applied press-powder I can’t apply this product on top of it, it just won’t set on my face. Another thing I found was that this highlighter works best went I applied cream-blushes, or if I applied this product first before applying the powder-blushes. It worked well when I used this product directly onto my face and that a little goes a long way. On the side, I’m still not sure if I would get this product again, I need to see how I truly feel about it.

They’re Real

I bought this mascara for two motives; first because this product was recommended to me by many of my FRIENDS and second I wanted to try a different mascara. You see I constantly have a budget on how much I spend on makeup (because if I didn’t I’d go WILD!) so when it came to buy the mascara I had to look at something that was pocket friendly to me :p. Plus I wanted to get a mascara that wasn’t to heavy on the lashes and that I could use it as my daily mascara. THIS DID THE JOB! I liked the colour and on how black it was and the formula was light on the lashes. It gave a very natural look but at the same time gave them HIGH volume and INCREDIBLE length. Would I buy this mascara again? OF COURSE!

Stay Lovely,

Makeup Products from Benefit

The other day I went to the mall to get a present for my mum’s birthday, a small gift for my dad and my friend wanted to do some shopping. What I need in a long sometime was some makeup, but I wanted some products that I haven’t tried that people have been talking about. Of course with the amount that I spent that day I had to keep a somewhat low budget for makeup! So I went into a makeup store and they had a Benefit counter, and that’s where I did my shopping. I only got 4 ITEMS!

The items above are the makeup that I bought. Starting from the left

  1. Tinted moisturizer called “YOU REBEL” in lite
  2. Concealer called “ERASE PASTE” in No. 1 fair
  3. Face highlighter called “GIRL MEETS PEARL”
  4. Mascara called “THEY’RE REAL!”

All of the makeup that is posted on this post is from Benefit and I spent my own money on them. This is the first time I will be using this products, they were RECOMANDED by many! As soon as I try them I will write a review about them and tell you what I think about these products that I am EXITED TO USE!
