Benefit cosmetics Review.

Benefit They’re Real Big Sexy Eye Kit – I received this product as a prize from a blog and I’m excited because I know this is new and exclusive to Ulta. I love the colors in this kit. It has three double shadows which is a total of 6 shadows. They are all wearable and perfect for those everyday makeup looks and its easy to transition them to night time for a nice and sexy sultry eye look. They are very smooth shadows and easy to blend. The little sponge applicator is a nice touch but I don’t think I will be using it honestly. I prefer to use my makeup brushes.

The applicator was easy to use and maneuver. I started in the inner corner and moved my way out to the outer part of my eye. I love how easily it applied the shadow but I was afraid to add more shadow to it because I didn’t want to mix the colors on the lids.

Naughty neutral is what I applied on my lids.

Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Eye Shadow Primer – I love this eye shadow primer. It is so easy to apply and blend onto the lids. I first tried this when I purchased my Benefit advent calendar and I’ve been in love with this ever since. I love how it makes my shadow last all day even on those hot icky days. This primer doesn’t crease my eye shadow which is a big plus because I don’t want to worry about it creasing. I have two shades and both work well with my skin tone. I don’t think it matters which one you purchase because it really makes no difference. I also love to apply this under my eyes to keep my concealer in place. This isn’t oily at all so if you have oily or dry skin it will work well with you.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara – This mascara gives me great length which I always look for in a mascara. It brushes in easily to my lashes and spreads them really good. I love to use two coats of this or three depending on the look I’m going for. You can apply some throughout the day and not ruin your lashes as well. It doesn’t give me much fullness which I hate, I love my lashes to look very full.

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Check out the products to see if you want to buy some for yourself or someone you know. I provided links for you all. Have a great week.

Remember to be confident and love yourself. ❤

Benefit Hoola zero tan lines REVIEW.

photogrid_1474146195956

I’m so sorry for the delay on this post. But I wanted to do a dedicated post on the Benefit tanning lotion with before and after pictures. I thought the pictures would be helpful to some of you, just in case you’ve been thinking about buying this product. Like I said before, I love this, I think it works really great. But this blog is about honesty and the only thing I hate about this is that it doesn’t last as long as my trusty Jergens lotion. The Benefit one is good for a day and the following day when you shower it will be right off. That’s the only down fall about this product. But that is something to think about before purchasing it. I say this is a perfect product for those last minute date nights or daytime activities you have to go to. I hope you enjoy this post. I really love how when I apply this, it gives you a instant tan, unlike my Jergens one where you have to wait about a hour or two. If you have any questions about this product please let me know.

I used one coat to get my desired color. This tanning lotion is very buildable. As you can see my legs are very white. As I’ve said, it doesn’t make you look orange, at least I dont think so.

Have a great weekend. Sorry for not posting links again. Don’t know when I will be purchasing a keyboard for my tablet. I tried fixing my keyboard but no luck.

Fall beauty must haves 2015

Fall beauty must haves 2015

Here are some of my beauty mush haves for fall. This is really all I need. The two eye shadow palettes have all the essential colors for fall and they are perfect. The mascara gives you a lot of volume ND it makes them look fuller which I love in a mascara. The bronzed trio from bare minerals is a must have for me because I love the two bronzers it has and they are the perfect shade and the highlight is amazing, also a tip, you can use the trio as eye shadow and it gives you a nice natural look. The Taylor Swift perfume and Bethany Mora are my favorite because they have a nice sweet scent to them and to me that is perfect for the fall time. The Essie polishes are in rotation for me, my number one face is Bahama mama. The last two products I’m obsessed with even more. The eye liner by benefit is super dark and it lasts all day, I promise you will love it. Last the campy red lipstick is something I must have in my makeup bag. What are some of your must haves for fall this year?

Remember to love yourself.
