Benefit the Porefessional
This primmer, definitely does reduce the size of my pores and makes the my skin very soft. They claim it to be translucent and oil-free that would work for every single skintones and type. Although it helps your makeup stay put, i feel like it need some extra help from T-zone balm products so your makeup stay in those areas. It is a good deal if you have blemishes or any imperfections this product will definitely hide them. Let’s talk about the ingredients, its almost entirely silicone blends and film-forming agents, but it does have a good amount of vitamin E that helps the skin to stay moist and soft.
Girl meets pearl
It is a liquid highlighter, therefore it adds glow in the areas you’d want to highlight. Basically it It automatically removes that tired looking face and gives you a awake and glowy face. I usually just highlighters on the top part of my cheekbones and cupids bow.
Stay don’t stray
This is nice, a good size and it’s a fleshy tone which blends away to nothing, belive me when i say that a little goes a long way. This is the only thing on the pack that i dont see myself using it as primmer, just because i dont normally primme my eyelids. Thought the coverage is really good and the colour works for both light skins and more tanned skins.
FoundationThis foundation is sheer but easly build-able. I don’t usually go for full on coverage when it comes to foundation as i prefer a more natural look than a face full of makeup, therefore i like it because it makes my skin-tone look more even without making me look like I have a lot of foundation. It also helps out with bemishes and other marks i usually hide.
Benefit Mascara”They are real”
You might be asking, so what makes this mascara so amazing? Although the packaging does not look that appealing i must say that once you open the mascara and you see those bristles, it’s like fireworks. What i mean is that they are really, really dense/ thick that it literally grabs all lashes a lifts them upwards. I love volume on my eyelashes so you can trust me, the mascara totally works and that “sexy pulp” that they claim to have, is no lie. It does work and even though it might sound that they will look false, they wont it is super natural and definitely you’ll hear “are they for real?!”.
The “Benetint” is a lip and cheek stain, although all bloggers have been talking about this product for ages i dont really understand why. As my skin is quite oily i finda that using a liquid blush is not a great deal as it makes my skin even more oily. As for the lips it just gives you a pinky healthy colour.
