Pinking Of You wouldn’t be my first choice of the Benefit pink – it’s sort of a sorbet pink, the kind of shade I imagine would look gorgeous on blondes but fade into nothing on me. Actually it’s not bad, and more pigmented than I expected – I wouldn’t call it full finish though, whilst it’s creamy it’s not opaque like say, YSL Rouge Volupte which is very full finish… It’s sort of an orange […]
Flirt Alert is indeed a flirty shade, an extremely hot orange red: I think this is lovely on the lips with high coverage but not too creamy and gooey, thus less prone to smudging: What do you think?
Praise the lord, it’s Friday! I just had to get that out. Benefit recently launched 7 new ultra shine lip glosses; 4 new shades and 3 returning colours! The line up: I have a soft spot of lip gloss, ANY lip gloss! The first four shades are right up my alley, as they are nude, beige, soft brown type shades. They are Nookie Nookie (opal glaze) Nudie-tude (goldspun twist) Patootie (oyster pink) So frisk me […]

So I have been testing out loads of stuff from Benefit lately – I guess it’s been nice rediscovering things I’ve heard of from other people (both positive and negative). Next up is Hello Flawless – oh yes, I love my base products! They say: This silky powder cover-up glides on naturally sheer and layers beautifully for customized coverage with SPF protection. Complete with brush and sponge and dual application lesson. This product is supposed […]
You know there are some beauty products that I hear other people talk about a lot but never get round to trying. One of those products is Benefit Erase Paste – I love the name ‘Erase Paste’ but wasn’t too sure about the ‘Paste’. Anyway I finally got a chance to try it out…ummm hello!? Why did no one frog march me to a Benefit counter to buy this?! Here is the concealer – it […]
Benefit Prrrowl or Prrrowl (I can’t figure out if it’s 3 R’s or 4 R’s because it varies from different pictures that I see!) is a rather interesting concoction of a iridescent mascara top coat and a shimmering pink lip gloss. I know what you’re thinking…why would you want a top coat and a lip gloss in the same place? I don’t know, but I guess this is one of those fun products Benefit is […]
Launching in January 2011 (Happy New Year!) is Benefit’s Bella Bamba Boxed Powder, a warm medium pink blusher with a shimmer gold touch to it. It comes in this funky looking box and it is reallyyyy pretty. They say: Amplify cheekbones and create the illusion of sculpted features with this 3D watermelon blush. Laced with shimmering gold undertones, bella bamba is taking eye popping pretty to the third dimension…you’ll never use traditional blush again! Bella […]
