All Things Concealed

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Like an embarrassing secret, dark under-eye circles and skin imperfections are better left under wraps. Problem is, concealers that boast opaque coverage often have dry and flaky drawbacks. That’s why we’re praising the brains behind Benefit for dreaming up this genius concealer.

Benefit Erase Paste blends like creamy butter and covers every last flaw (minus the caked-on, crusty finish). Because the consistency is so crazy smooth, the tiniest dab goes the longest way. All three shades conceal and brighten, so the result is skin that looks ‘lit from within’ (read: the most insane glow). Believe it or not, a few pats of this gives skin an instant look extra shuteye.

We’re particularly fond of the cute little add-ons: a teensy spatula to scoop out the rich concealer, and a step-by-step lesson book full of expert application tips. No shame there.

Beneficial Makeup

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

I love Benefit Cosmetics and have multiple pieces in my makeup bag. They are always coming out with ingenious products and I want to share with you some of the newer additions that I either have or desperately want!

Powder Pop!
The best and most popular face powders all in one handy portable holiday box. Dallas (rosy bronze), Hoola (bronze), and Dandelion (soft pink). Could it more perfect?

Ten palette
They strike gold again with this sweet little holiday palette that contains duo bronzes in bronze shimmer and light pink – giving you perfectly sculpted cheeks, two seductive shades for lips (sheer golden berry/sheer plum) and complementary shades for eyes (soft mauve/golden taupe).

“That Gal”
To have that flawless look, you need to make sure you skin is perfectly primed. After you moisturize apply this for smoother, brighter skin. I wear it alone or under my favourite foundation.

D’finer D’liner
Carmindy is against the lip liner but I bet she is all for this one, as is clear! It creates an invisible boundary around lips, preventing the dreaded feather factor. Yippee.

Silky Powder Eye Shadow
I have been enjoying the creaseless cream shadow/liner from Benefit and am excited about the Silky Powder Shadow that just hit the counters recently. I have three pans on my desk that I will be diving into shortly! These shades provide an even coverage to enhance and contour.

Justine Case
I wanna, wanna, wanna this! It’s the perfect beauty refresher this kit containing Some Kind-A Gorgeous for flawless complexion, Benetint for rosy lips & cheeks, California Kissin‘ and let’s not forget Eyecon for fading action day or night. OK enough of my whining!
