 BADgal pencil
BADgal pencil
This big, BAD, black eye pencil is a beauty addict's dream and a makeup artist's must-have. Dark, smoky, mysterious...being BAD never looked so good!The powdery consistency makes this black pencil ideal for smooth, straight lines, and can also be smudged for a smoky, sexy look.

This is such a handy brush to have you can use it to do your brows perfectly. It is also brilliant to use with the creaseless eyeshadow to create eyeliner. Good investment!!!

When i first started using this product it took me a while to get the look right. The secret is Blend Blend Blend.....I love this for your lips before applying a natural gloss to give that subtle look. It lasts for ages I have had the same one for a couple of years and it is only just coming to an end.
Loved that it's natural

This product you can use everyday as a highlighter. It just gives you skin that extra lift without being too noticeable. I used High beam but felt it was too shimmery for during the day. Moon Beam is the perfect pick me up for your daytime face.
Loved that it's warm

I have used this product for about 8 years and have only had to repurchase once. This items keeps well. I do not use this during the day only for an evening look. I apply it to my brow bone, cheek bones and under my eyes to reduce the appearance of bags. It works wonders. Far better than any other products on the market. This is something I will always have in my makeup bag.

I have tried nearly every Mascara on the market. While I was not very impressed with the Bal gal Mascara (i felt it left me black under my eyes). This mascara is great it does exactly as it says gives the impression of false eyelashes without being over the top. It is i deal for everyday wear and then add extra layers to create a dramatic effect for night time. This is one of the best mascaras on the market.

Posietint or Dandelion Blush for Fair Skin & Red Hair

Hi All,

I've used the Benefit creme blush in Shh!!! for about 2 years now (well, I bought it 2 years ago & it's JUST running out! Benefit is so worth the price, just for that!)...Unfortunately it looks like they've discontinued it, so I'm looking for something to replace it...Before I used the creme blush I used the Dandelion powder blush & loved it, but I have dry skin, so I switched to the creme formula since it seemed to stay on longer...After reading the reviews for Posietint, I'm wondering if that would be a better choice than the Dandelion...I have very fair skin and red hair...I'm thinking of getting both, but I'm not sure if it would be overkill....

What I'm looking for is to get a pretty rosy glow & a dewy look...Any thoughts?
I have both these products and think that the 2 work brilliantly together. Dandelion is barely noticeable on its on and Posie tint just adds that little extra colour needed.

Will High Beam Bring Out Wrinkles?

Hi all,

I just turned 40 this year (yikes!), so I was wondering if High Beam would bring out wrinkles...I'm actually lucky to have very few, but I do have a few fine lines around my eyes & I'm worried that, since this product is supposed to be applied on the cheeks, that it might call attention to those fine lines...I guess what I'm wondering is...is it sparkly? And has anyone else over 25 tried this product? I'm very fair & I'd like to have a "dewy" look to my skin, but I don't want to look like I'm going to a rave :/

Thanks for the info!
Personally I feel that this item reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It works wonders with the bags under my eyes.

Blue eyes?

I have just discovered the amazing products of Benefit. I am now on the hunt for an eye shadow kit that can make my blue eyes pop! Would this be a good kit to try? ( I try to keep my makeup 'appear' natural and try to stay with brown mascara.-I am blonde, blue/gray/green eyes and I have fair skin)
My mum wears this during the day. She applies it very lightly and it is beautiful. She has Blonde Hair, Blue eyes and fair skin. Hope this helps

how do i apply smokin' eyes

could someone film a youtube video of how to apply it or something?
The set comes with Step by step instructions on how to apply. I have found that the more I use it the more tips i pick up myself. It is very easy to used. Another great kit from benefit.

bronzing & highlighting face powder duo
 

10 or Hoola?

I'm looking for a fairly subtle, easy-to-use, hard-to-go-wrong contouring color for the hollows of my cheeks. However I can really only afford either 10 or Hoola at a time. Which would you recommend for golden-medium skin?
I love both these products. 10 i would use to add shimmer over Hoola. Hoola would probably be better if you are looking for colour. 10 is more shimmer than colour. hope this helps

will this product go well with pale skin?

hi im REALLY pale and have chestnut brown hair, i love the description of this product but because of my skin tone i have always been cautious about bronzer, would i be able to wear this? thank you so much and benefit is my favorite makeup brand i love you so much!
I would recommend this product to everybody. It can be as subtle or dramatic as you like, just apply more or less depending on the desired effect. It is suitable for any colouring or skin tone.
