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

Bonne Bell Blend and Glow

Weekly Cheap Secret:

This is one of my favorite finds. Yes, I like Bonne Bell, the maker of soda pop flavored lip gloss from the disco era. I bought this product because I was out of something more expensive (Bobbi Brown) and I didn’t have the money to spend on something that I thought wasn’t a necessity. Now this is a necessity. I love flawless complexions. To me flawless complexions resemble store mannequins or Barbie. I know many people don’t like the “plastic” look. Sometimes… Continue reading
