Smokey Bronze Eye Face of the Day

Published February 14, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I actually woke up early today!!! I feel pretty OK today. My body is stiff today but my pain level is around a 5. I received a bunch of new makeup in the mail today so I got to play with some new stuff. I was feeling like a smokey eye today, I’m all Valentine’s Day Look fatigued, so I decided to just go glam. Hope you enjoy it… and Hope that you are in good spirits….Let’s jump into the Face of the Day ….

20200214_125835

Base: I double primed my face today…. I used Dr Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer ($45 at Ulta and Sephora) and then layered that with AOA Studio Wonder Skin Illuminating Primer ($1 on the Shop Miss A website). I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 on their website and at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach. For foundation today I am using a repurchase new foundation to me Too Faced Born This Way Undetectable Medium to Full Coverage Foundation ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Warm Nude. I concealed my under eyes using a brand new product to me Too Faced Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Vanilla. I set my face using Pixi by Petra Colour Correcting Powder Foundation ($20 on their website and at Target) in the shade No.2 Nude. I warmed up the face using BH Cosmetics Brilliance Bronzer ($10 on their website and at Ulta) in the shade Bronze Babe. I set my under eyes and baked the jaw line, center of the forehead, and bridge of the nose using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 at the Beautylish website).

Eyes: I primed the lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using Laura Merceir Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. For today’s bronzey smoke eye look I used the Private Society Cosmetics Girl Boss Palette ($35 on their website). For my transition shade I used the color CEO (an orange based tan matte). For my crease shade I mixed the shades Brunch (a mid-toned terra cotta matte) and Money Maker (a mid-toned muddy brown matte). On my mobile lid I used the shade Iconic (a muddy bronze metallic) on my inner 2/3. I deepened my outer v and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid using the shade Friyay (a deep true brown matte) and then went in with the shade Instafamous (a copper metallic) on the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid to help blend out the edges of the inner and outer 1/3. On the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using first the shade CEO then the same combo of Money Maker and Brunch. I then deepened the lower lash line using more of Friyay and then buffed the whole lower lash line using more of the shade Brunch. I highlighted the inner corners first using Socialite (a pale champagne satin) and then I layered Dazzle (a pale champagne with silver glitter) from the Too Faced Turn Up The Light Complexion-Enhancing Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way. I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (rose gold metallic). I tight lined the upper waterlines using NYX Slim Eye Pencil ($4.50 on their website and their store and at Ulta) in the shade Black. I set my brows using Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer ($10 at Target) in clear and then filled in my brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 on their website) in the shade Deep Brown. I carved out my brows using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the shimmer side and set that with the shade First Class (a true vanilla matte). I primed my lower lashes with Loreal Voluminous Primer ($6.79 at Target) and then put on a pair of lashes that I can’t find the name off anywhere. I then created a baby winged liner on the upper lash line and used Pixi by Petra Lash Booster Mascara ($15 on their website and at Target) in the shade Blackest Black on the lower lashes and to meld my upper lashes in with the falsies.

Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I chose Private Society 8 Blush Palette ($42 on their website) in the color way Secret Admirer and using the shade Sweet Romance (a deep warm toned peach). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, Cupid’s Bow, bridge of the nose, and center of the forehead using Benefit Powder Highlighter ($30 at Ulta) in the shade Cookie (a white gold pearl). I then used the Too Faced Turn Up The Light Complexion-Enhancing Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way using the Soft Focus powder as all over finishing powder. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (regularly $7 on sale for $4.90 on their website) in the shade 951 (a warm nude with a hint of burgundy) and filled in the lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix (regularly $7 on sale for $4.90 on their website) in the shade Daydream (a plummy brown matte).

Final Thoughts:

Too Faced Born This Way Undetectable Medium to Full Coverage Foundation: A+++!!!!      I had tried this foundation when it first came out and loved it. I used it up but never repurchased it. Whilst I was on the Ulta website purchasing other products I decided to repurchase it too. I am so glad I did. This foundation is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love how glowy it is and how perfect it looks on the face. I did forget that a little goes a long way and ended up using way too much today, but even so the finish didn’t look cakey at all. I am so in love with this foundation and am super excited to have it back in my collection.

Too Faced Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer: B-                                                                                This is a super thick concealer. It did great at highlighting the high points of my face but, because I hadn’t used this one before, I used too much for the under eye and it seemed to just sink deep into my fine lines. I chose to give this a letter grade of B- because it did crease and seemed to lift up off the under eye as I tried to blend it in. I don’t know, I think I just need more time to work with this one to see if I can get it to work better. Now, the reason for it seeping into my fine lines may be because I let it sit too long before blending it in, this may be the type of concealer that you have to work is small sections to get it to work out. So I will try it again tomorrow and see if I get a better outcome, if not then I will just use this one to highlight the high points of my face.

Too Faced Turn Up The Light Complexion-Enhancing Highlighting Palette: A-                        This is a trio complexion palette. It comes with a soft focus powder in the middle, a softer focus highlighter, and a chunky glittery highlighter. I think the soft focus finishing powder is beautiful and the softer focus highlighter is pretty, but that 3rd shade is just to inundated with glitter to work for highlighter. For this reason I chose to give this a A- grade. I would have much rather liked to have seen either a bronzer or a blush in this palette over that glittery hell Too Faced calls Dazzle. I can’t use this as a highlighter at all, but I can use it as an inner corner highlight for my eyes.

Benefit Powder Highlighter in the Shade Cookie: A+++!!!!                                                      OM GOSH!!! This highlighter is so stinking beautiful!!! It’s so reflective that it almost looks like wet skin! I wasn’t going to get it because I already have a Benefit highlighter, and well, I have a stock pile of highlighter… But I purchased it as a last minute impulse buy and am so glad I did. It is highly reflective without having any glitter what so ever. If your are light skinned to tan skin and are in the market for a knock your socks off product…. this highlighter is the one for you.

ColourPop Lippie Pencil in the Shade 951: A++                                                                                I purchased this lippie pencil as part of the Big Box of Lippie Pencils ($79 on sale for $68 on their website). This is such a pretty shade, and I normally don’t do deeper nude lip pencils. This one has a slight burgundy shift to it that would make it perfect for contouring the lips. It’s creamy and doesn’t feather into the fine lines of the lips.

ColourPop Lippie Stix in the Shade Daydream: A+++                                                                    Again, I purchased this lippie stix as part of the Big Box of Lippie Stix ($115 on sale for $99 on their website). I never use deep vampy nude shades ever, but it was in my box set and I thought I might as well try it out. I am so glad I did. This shade is beautiful!! It’s creamy and doesn’t transfer outside the lip line or get on the teeth. It’s a matte formula, but it’s a comfortable matte formula that doesn’t pill up on the inner rim of the lip. It’s long wearing and fades down nicely.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay tuned soon for a new makeup haul and review. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are having a low pain/high energy day/night. Until tomorrow, remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO

Benefit Cosmetics Revisited and Face of the Day

Published December 30, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

20191230_112827

Good morning dolls. How’s your day going? I’m doing good today.

Today I tried a new to me Benefit foundation. This is a full face of mostly Benefit products and short review….. Enjoy….

20191230_115529

BASE: I primed my face with Benefit POREfessional Hydrating Primer ($13 for mini, $32 for full sized on their website). I color corrected my dark circles with Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the color Light-Medium. I used Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer ($13 for mini and $22 for full sized on their website) in the color No. 5 Medium. I used Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation ($15 for mini and $30 for the full sized on their website) in the color No.4 Medium. I set my under eyes with the ELF Undereye Setting Powder ($4 on their website) and then set the rest of my face with Benefit Hello Happy Velvet Powder Foundation ($30 on their website) in the color No.4 Medium. I bronzed my face with the Benefit Babe on Board Face Palette ($30 on the Beautylish website) in the color Hoola.

 

EYES: I primed my lids with Tarte Shape Tape ($27 at Ulta) in the color Light-Medium Honey. For my eyes I used the ColourPop Eyeshadow Palette the I put together ($28 on their website). I set the Shape Tape with the color Hear Me Out (a light cream matte). As my 1st transition shade I chose Issues (a soft orange creamsicle matte). For my 2nd transition shade I chose to mix Bel Air (a dusty grey toned tan matte) and Wake Up Call (a dusty peach toned tan matte). My crease color is Criss Cross (a red toned burnt orange matte). I then deepened my outer v with the color Feathered (a reddish brown matte). As my drop shadow on my lower lash line I used Feathered close to the lash line and then blew it out with Criss Cross. I did my brows the same way I did them yesterday …. using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 on their website) and Benefit Gimme Brow Gel ($24 on their website) in the color 4.5 Neutral Deep Brown. I carved my brow line out with the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side. I set the brow line with Hear Me Out from my palette. I used the Benefit Vanity Flare Nude Eyeshadow Palette ($34 on the Beautylish website) for my lids … for the inner 2/3 of my lid I used the color Pink Pearl (a pale pink shimmer). I did a wing eyeliner today using the Benefit Roller Liner ($12 for the mini and $22 for the full sized on their website) in black and then used Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($25 on their website) in black.

20191230_115616

CHEEK and LIPS: I used the Benefit Babe on Board Face Palette ($30 on the Beautylish website) for my blush and highlight… on the cheeks I used Rockabye (a mid-toned true coral satin) and I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, brow bone, and cupid’s bow with Dandelion Twinkle (a pale champagne). On my lips today I have ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip ($6 on their website) in the color Speed Dial (a brow toned deep peach) and lined with ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the color Oh Sis (a smokey paprika).

Final Thoughts….

Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer: B-                                                                                    When I reviewed this concealer yesterday I had tried it without color correcting to see what kind of coverage I would get. It didn’t do well at covering the under eye circles so I gave it a C. I tried it today with color corrector and it worked out better. It’s still too dry for my under eye but it doesn’t cake up and it doesn’t crease. It’s an OK concealer. I’ll use up the mini and if I do repurchase this it will also be the mini; it’s not one I think I want to own a full sized on.

Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation: A+                                                    This foundation is billed as a 12 hour wear that gives you a natural satin finish. You get 1 fluid ounce in the full sized bottle and .33 fluid ounces in the mini sized bottle. It comes in 12 shades, 5 of which are for deeper skin.  The color I chose was No. 4 Medium and it’s billed as a neutral but it is a little too yellow based… I was able to make it work once I used the powder foundation on top of it. It’s a soft focus foundation that looks beautiful on the skin. It’s a medium coverage foundation that builds well, I did 2 coats and it did not go patchy or streaky. It does not emphasize pores or lines and buffs into the skin seamlessly. I will use the rest of my mini up and then I will purchase the full sized.

Benefit Hello Happy Velvet Powder Foundation: B+                                                                      I stand by my rating of this product from yesterday. It’s a nice powder foundation that gives a tad more coverage to your look. I still don’t think this works as a stand alone powder foundation, but it works really good as a finishing powder and touch up powder. It’s not too powdery or cakey. I wasn’t sure yesterday if I would repurchase this one, but I think I will… it’s a nice powder.

Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil and Benefit Gimme Brow Gel: A+++                                     I stand by my rating of this product from yesterday. This by far is my favorite find of the whole Benefit line. I am definitely repurchasing both the pencil and gel in bulk so I am never without it.

Benefit Roller Liner in Black: A-                                                                                                         I don’t like this one as much as I like it in brown. It’s a bit more glossy, it’s not matte like it’s billed. It went on a little streaky and once it dried the look is a bit crunchy, not at all smooth like the brown liner. It’s still pretty good and was easy to use, however …. I made a mistake and when I went to clean it smeared the liner everywhere…. so I had to correct it quickly to avoid a big disaster. I still like it but I will not repurchase it in black … I will repurchase it in brown though.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: A+ I stand by everything I said in yesterday’s review of this product. It was a little bit drier today than it was yesterday but it still gives such length to the eyelashes. I will definitely use the one I have up, and I really liked it as a lower lash mascara so I will be repurchasing it to use it as such.

Benefit Babe on Board Face Palette: A+                                                                                            I changed my mind about the highlighter in this palette. Yes it has some glitter but once you use a setting spray it melts into the skin so beautifully that I really love it. This here is the reason I don’t do first impressions…. my first impression was like “ugh glitter, yup I hate it.” and then today I am in love with it. I also tried it on wet and that went on so glowy that I will see myself reaching for this palette a ton over the next few months.

Yesterday in Final Thoughts I said that Benefit as a whole was a B++. The foundation I tried today makes me want to re-evaluate this …. I would give the company as a whole an A-. I still truly hate the eyeshadow palette I purchased, but I also hated the foundation and upon trying the Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation I now really want to try another eyeshadow palette to see if I can get a better result.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Have an amazing day and as always save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Benefit Cosmetics Full Face Review and Face of the Day

Published December 29, 2019 by aspooniesmakeupbag

20191226_142442

Hey doll hey. How are you today? Good I hope. I’m having an OK Fibromyalgia day… low pain day and have a few spoons left.

Today I will be reviewing the full line (minus a lip product) of Benefit Cosmetics. I decided to do just 1 post today because I’m running low on spoons and this makeup day has put me in a bad mood…. Spoiler ….. I truly hated applying makeup today… read on and you’ll understand why….

BASE: I primed my face using the Benefit The POREfessional Hydrating Primer ($13 for the mini on their website). I didn’t color correct so that I could test out the concealer to see how well it covered. I concealed using the Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer ($13 for the mini on their website) in the color No. 5. I purchased 2 foundations to try so today I chose Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation ($10 for the mini on their website) in the color 4 Medium Neutral. I set my full face using the Benefit Hello Happy Velvet Powder Foundation ($30 on their website) in the color 4 Medium Neutral. I bronzed using the Benefit Hoola Bronzer (it came as part of a trio for $30 on the Beautylish website).

EYES: I primed my eyes with Tarte Shape Tape ($25 at Ulta) in the color Light-Medium Honey. I set the Shape Tape with Wet n Wild Color Icon ($.99 at Walgreens) in the color Brulee. I started to try and do an eye look with the  Benefit Vanity Flare Nude Eyeshadow Palette ($34 on the Beautylish website) but it was just a horrible mess, so I took off my makeup and started again…. I pulled in my Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette ($25 on their webstie and at Nordstrom Rack) and after priming and setting the primer with Brulee …AGAIN …. I used, from the Urban Decay Palette, Faith (a mid-toned grey based brown matte) as my transition shade. I used, from the same palette, Lockout (a slightly deeper grey based brown matte) for my crease color. on my lid I used, from the Benefit Vanity Flare Palette, Shimmering Nude (a deep champagne gold shimmer). I deepened the outer v with with Black Jack (a dusty black matte, from the Urban Decay Palette). Along my lower lash line I used Extra Bitter (a burnt orange matte, from the Urban Decay Palette) and I then took what was left on the brush into my transition shade to warm it up a bit. I defined the lower lash line by using the color Faith again. I highlighted my inner corners with Satiny Heather (a pale pink shimmer, from the Vanity Flare Palette). I lined my water line with BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 on the BH Cosmetics Website) in the color Beige. I did a wing liner using the Benefit Roller Liner Liquid Eyeliner ($12 for the mini on their website) in the color Brown. For my brows I used the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($14 for the mini on their website) and Gimme Brow Gel ($14 for the mini on their website) in the color 4.5 Neutral Deep Brown. I carved out my brow line with BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on the BH Cosmetics website) on the matte side. I set the brow line with Wet n Wild Color Icon ($.99 at Walgreens) in the color Sugar. For mascara I am using the Benefit Roller Lash mascara ($13 on their website).

CHEEKS and LIPS: On the cheeks I am using, from the Babe on Board face palette ($30 on the Beautylish website … it is limited edition), Rockabye (a mid-toned Coral satin). I highlighted my cheek bones, tops of the brow bone, and cupid’s bow with Dandelion Twinkle (a pale champagne). I didn’t like any of the lip selections through Benefit so to line my lips I chose NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in Whipped Caviar and then filled in my lips using ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip ($7 on their website) in the color Gingham (a mid-toned true Coral).

Hold on to you seats dolls … I have plenty to say about this Benefit purchase ….. so here we go.

20191229_121745 The Review….

Benefit The POREfessional Hydrating Primer: B                                                                          This primer is billed as being a primer that moisturizes and refreshes skin, as having a natural finish, and as being able to minimize the look of pores and fine lines. You get .75 fluid ounces for the full sized and .25 fluid ounces for the mini sized. There is nothing special about this primer. It did nothing to minimize my pores or my fine lines. It did not feel moisturizing at all. It’s a tacky primer that grips on to foundation, but does nothing it claims to do. It’s just an OK primer. I’ll finish using it but I will not be repurchasing it.

Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer: C                                                                                           It’s billed as being a lightweight, 24 hour long wearing concealer that doesn’t cake up. It comes in 12 shades, 4 of which are for darker skin. You get .17 fluid ounces for the full sized and .1 fluid ounces for the mini sized. The color I chose is spot on perfect for my complexion… but you should only use the smallest amount possible. I used a bit too much and had to blot it away. It did not cover my under eyes well at all… you can still see the dark circles under my eyes. It does emphasize the fine lines but did not look cakey… it just looks dry and dull …. there is nothing special about this concealer. I’ll use up what is left of this concealer but it’s a hard pass for me … I will not be repurchasing it.

Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation: D                                                                              It’s billed as being a light medium coverage, that blurs imperfections and has a natural matte finish. You get 1 fluid ounce in the full sized bottle and .2 fluid ounces in the mini sized bottle. This foundation comes in 12 shades with 5 shades for deep skin. The shade I purchased was billed as being medium neutral but has way too much yellow undertone in it. This foundation emphasized every pore I have. It also clung to dry patches I didn’t know I had. It went on patchy and streaky and took forever to buff in. It didn’t look good at all … that is until I powdered and used setting spray… then it looked half way OK. I wont be using up the mini I bought I threw it out and definitely will never repurchase this foundation.

Benefit Hello Happy Velvet Powder Foundation: B+                                                                  It’s billed as being lightweight and breathable and having a natural matte finish. You get .25 ounces of product. It comes in 12 shades, 5 shades for deep skin. It’s finely milled and creamy. It gives a descent amount of coverage and in the color I purchased was said to be neutral medium in color … it was a perfect match. It is a good finishing powder… I don’t think it’s a good foundation powder, but it works as a finishing powder. I will use it up but may not be repurchasing it.

Benefit Babe on Board Face Palette: A-                                                                                        This is a limited edition face palette offered on Beautylish’s website. It comes with a Hoola bronzer (it seems to be a bit lighter than the one I have in the box version) a blush in the color  Rockabye (Beautylish says it is a warm rose with a natural finish, however it’s more like a true mid-toned coral with a satin finish) and a highlighter in the color Dandelion Twinkle (Beautylish describes it as a nude pink with a shimmer finish, it’s more of a pale champagne with a slight pink shift). This is a descent face palette. It gets an A- because there is glitter in the highlighter … I didn’t give it a lower score because of the glitter because the glitter seems to dissipate with wear so it doesn’t bother me as much as other highlighters with glitter do. I really like this palette and this is the first Benefit blush I have tried and I love the finish of it. I am definitely picking up a few more blushes. I will not be able to repurchase this as it is a limited edition palette.

Benefit Vanity Flare Nude Eyeshadow Palette: F!!!!!                                                                This was the worst palette I have ever tried in my life…. no that’s not hyperbole …. that is straight up fact. There is no pigment to these shadows … the mattes are not mattes they are satins and the satins are not satins they are shimmer … I tried to make this palette work, really I did, but after 6 layers of the mid-toned colors with no color payoff at all I got fed up and washed my makeup off and started over. When you apply the darker shades to the crease and transition you don’t get color you just get this weird shimmery mess that picks up on every little spot of dry skin  on your eyes. The kick back is terrible with this the pan was covered in shadow… and the fallout is just as bad …. this is just a hot mess… I know that Benefit has other shadows but after this experience I am hard pressed to not even attempt to purchase another eye palette…. it’s a definite hard pass for me. I’ll be using it in tomorrow’s Full Face of Benefit, only because I still need to test out the other foundation I purchased… then I am tossing it straight into the trash…. to bad I had already tossed the uni-carton or I would have returned this palette to Beautylish.

Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil: A+++!!!                                                                                      It is billed as having natural looking hair like strokes that lasts for 12 hours. It comes in 12 shades. You get .002 ounces for the full sized and .001 ounces for the mini sized. After trying the eye shadow palette I was deflated and getting moody and really starting to hate this brand. This pencil is heaven! HEAVEN I SAY!!!! I was able to block my eye brows out fast and without skipping or having to retrace my lines. I was able to fill in my bald spots without having the pencil pull at my brow hairs. The color is a perfect match for me and I think this is the best my brows have ever looked. I am so happy I purchased this product. It went a long way to helping my mood about doing my makeup today improve. This product didn’t bead up on my skin, it didn’t smear, it didn’t yank at my hairs, It didn’t get crumbly around the hairs that are growing back…. I love this brow pencil. I am so going to use this product up and I am most definitely repurchasing this in bulk.

Benefit Gimme Brow Gel: A++                                                                                                      This product is billed as a brow tint that volumizes and tames brows for a buildable natural looking brow that is water resistant and long wearing. It comes in 8 shades. This gel held my brows perfectly without being to crunchy. The brush applicator is the perfect size and doesn’t rip at the hairs. There is perfect amount of product on the brush and doesn’t get messy. I really like this brow gel. I will use up my mini and then purchase the full sized version. Definitely a good brow gel. I think it’s better than the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow gel.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: A+ This product is billed as a mascara that grabs, seperates, lifts, and curls lashes. It claims to hold the curl of the lashes for 12 hours.  It comes only in black. You get .3 fluid ounces for the full sized and .14 fluid ounces for the mini sized. I missed the boat on this mascara when it first came out. I backed away from it because of the fact that it has a plastic bristle wand and I hate those. This mascara is great. I really like it. With one coat my lashes looked strong and full. I used a 2nd coat to see if it would over power the lashes and it didn’t it just defined my lashes even more. I will definitely use up the mini and then I will purchase the full sized.

Benefit Roller Liner Liquid Eyeliner: A+                                                                                    This eyeliner is billed as being a matte liquid eyeliner that goes on smooth and is water proof and lasts for 24 hours.  It comes in 2 colors… black and brown. You get .03 fluid ounces in the full sized and .01 fluid ounces in the mini sized. I normally steer clear of liquid eyeliners with a felt tip because they catch on the fine lines of my lids. This liner went on effortlessly smooth and pigmented. It was the easiest time I had doing a winged liner. I really like this product. I will definitely use up my minis and I will be purchasing replacements once I’ve used the minis up (i purchased both the black and brown). The brown is a deep brown color and it goes on super opaque. It’s a great liner.

Final Thoughts….

All in all Benefit seems to be a good company. Some of the products were just OK for me but others were true winners in my book… despite the drama with the eyeshadow palette. There were more products I loved verses products that were either just OK or that I hated. I would give the brand as a whole a grade of B++.

Well that’s all for now dolls… stay tuned tomorrow when I do a Revisit of Benefit with the second foundation I purchased.

I hope your day is good and as always save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
