Where's sugar cookie gone? Has it been discontinued?! I love it, such a beautiful colour and finish to it. Just a bit of a shame it doesn't last too long. Otherwise, perfect.

I'm so happy that I bought this. You really get a lot for your money (considering the price of one full sized lipgloss) despite the mini sizes of these! For me, the sparkly glosses are the best. They are full of colour and you only need to apply a tiny amount. They last too! They aren't too sticky and the texture is comfortable on the lips unlike so many lip glosses. Won't be buying from any other brand ever again! Benefit is the best :-)

This was the first brow product I have ever bought, and I think it's great. It's just the right consistency with box wax and powder in it. It's possible to create really natural brows and I think that's what it is best for. It's annoying for defined brows, however, as it needs to be sharpened all the time. I've used it like wild-fire because of that. Now it stays in my makeup case in my handbag for touch ups only, and I use Brow-Zings instead otherwise. Too soft and gets used up too quickly for the money, a shame, as it's a good product.

I was always scared about doing my brows, and making myself look too over-done, but Brow-Zings is just incredible. It has all the scope to either create a defined look or a more natural one. Sometimes I'll use the angled brush with both the powder and the wax, other times I'll use the wax on the blending brush and just put it straight on to fill in the gaps and still look ultra natural. It's the perfect size for on the go, especially with the cute little tweezers and mirror. It'll also last a long time, so totally worth the money. The added bonus of the wax and powder in two colours is that I can create the perfect colour brows. Thanks Benefit :-)

Absolute best bronzer BY FAR!

I was never a fan of bronzers as I thought they always make me look fake or a bit WAG-like, or too shimmery ;-) but not this one!! It's perfect and beautifully matte! I dust a little with a blush brush (not the one provided, gives too defined a line) onto the hollows of my cheeks, on my cheek bones, and sometimes a little on the apple of my cheeks, and I look alive and fresh. I have fair skin, but it still looks great. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!

Natural looking, perfectly flushed-looking colour as described. Perfect on the cheeks. Cute on the lips too, but for me, it's necessary to really moisturise first. Doesn't last all day, but, I love re-applying and confusing people with the nail-varnish like packaging ;-) there's nothing else like it on the market, and for that reason I will be re-purchasing. Seems to last a decent amount of time too! :-)

Gives me a really cute pinky, slightly sparkly glow. Absolutely perfect on upper cheeks and brow bone. I add it usually as a bit of a wow in the evening or to brighten my face when I'm super tired. I love the packaging- sometimes I think that people on the train really think that I'm putting nail varnish on my face ;-) my only issue is that it doesn't last all day and I have to reapply quite a bit.
It's quite pricey but I haven't found another highlighter as cute as this. Thanks Benefit :-)

I never thought about buying this product, but a really lovely sales assistant for Benefit in South London put this on me and since there's no going back!!
It's the PERFECT everyday and evening glow. It makes me look peachy, bright and awake. The champagne colour is perfect for my skin. You get a huge amount of product for your money and I can tell that it will last a very long time.
I put this on everyday without fail, whether I use a tinted moisturisor or foundation or not. Beautiful product! I've converted a friend too :-)

Almost perfect..

This was the first Benefit product I bought, last year, and it has lasted me until now and there is still absolutely loads of product left. It doesn't dry my skin out, has a nice light coverage, gives a cute glow to the skin..
My only are issues are these..
The tube is not great- the top doesn't always screw on properly, and the metal on the tube itself with the writing etc. has gradually flaked off and now it looks like an old tube of dodgy paint.
I can't put it too close to my eyes as it makes them sting a bit but it doesn't irritate my skin.
It's a lovely product that I use most days. But please, improve the tube! Thank you :-)

Flawless skin without the 'makeup-y' look!

I received this as part of a gift set at Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it would be another cakey old foundation, but I was definitely wrong. It feels super smooth and beautiful on the skin. Doesn't dry it out, doesn't make it greasy either. It's perfect for someone like me who likes to have a flawless looking face without the obvious look of makeup. It's miracle stuff, and I don't think I'll ever buy another foundation again. It's affordable, but such a shame that it gets used up so quickly. Benefit, please give us more product in that cute packaging. We'll love you even more!

i need to no if its overall face and does it make me look orange !!!
This bronzer will never make you orange. It's a miracle! You can absolutely use it everywhere. For all over, or for contour it works perfectly.

Should I buy Medium or Lite?

I'm half Mexican and I have light skin, but with olive undertones...I'm not sure if I should get this in Medium or Lite.
Go for Medium! It's magic at blending into your skin tone!

Which shade?

I have olive skin and not sure which shade would be right for me. Can anyone help? Thanks :)
I'd suggest medium for you. I am light skinned and it was slightly too dark for me. Don't go for number 3, too dark. You always want something more on the light side for concealer anyway. Hope it works out :-)

Is this concealer good for acne

I have terrrible acne. iIs it good to cover it up?
Absolutely! Use a nice foundation too such as some kinda gorgeous too and use boi-ing over the top on difficult areas. Stay away from anything too powdery. Hope it works for you :-)

Which is Better?

I have kinda severe acne. I currently use boing and lemonade with some powder and hoola bronzer. It just takes up so much room and time. What other concealers or foundations would be good for acne pronw skin? I am deciding between sticking with what I have or using playstick which i tested and has a thick coverage. I also tried some kind of gorgeous which actually covered a lot. I was really skeptical but it did the job. I think it ended up having more coverage cause i used a brush and stippled it all over my face.
I would recommend using some kind of gorgeous (with a brush as you did) as it gives a beautiful natural finish, and going over any particularly difficult areas with boi-ing. Perhaps use a primer underneath if you wish to give an even longer lasting makeup such as porefessional or that gal. I'd stay away from powders for now, as I find it pronounces blemishes by drying them out.
