Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Complexion Enhancer Review

Benefit High Beam

I can’t believe that I haven’t talked about this product sooner! I’ve been using if for over 5 years. It’s one of my favorite complexion products. Benefit High Beam really is a supermodel in a bottle. It does wonderful, wonderful things for my complexion. It’s a shimmery pale pink creamy liquid that I use on my cheeks, brow bones, down the nose, etc. It blends in nicely without looking too over the top. It makes my skin look healthy and dewy.

My Cheap Secret: Bonne Bell Blend n’ Glow Multi-Tone Shimmer Powder

Old Favorite: Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder Review

I love the packaging of Coty Airspun Loose Powder. It is the original packaging and I wish more companies would keep the same look. It gives this product such an adorable retro glamor.

Of course, I went for fragrance. The fragrance is a bit old fashioned and I can understand why people would want to go the fragrance free route… Continue reading

Box-O-Powder: A Guide To Benefit Cosmetics Boxed Powders

Benefit is known for their catchy, kitschy packaging, names and advertising. Everyone has to admit that is why we gave them a try to begin with. If you still haven’t tried any of Benefit’s products then you should. Not all of their products are great, they can be expensive and hokey. But most of them are nice. For instance, some of those little boxes of powder.

First, the packaging of these are usually cute. Functional, um..no, cute…yes. I have mine on my dresser because I don’t want them to break or get nasty in my makeup bag. If you… Continue reading
