Now seeking… Mr. Bright

Monday, January 17, 2011

Benefit‘s coming out with a very cute new product this March, and I wanted to share a couple photos with you before then! (The best part is that I can totally do this guilt-free, because all of the products are available on their own right now.) I’ll be testing the products over the next little while, and will have a (much) more detailed review for you lovely ladies closer to the actual launch.

Swatches of Benefit Finding Mr. Bright:

L -> R, swatched heavily and then lightly: girl meets pearl, posietint, high beam, erase paste (medium)

  • Girl Meets Pearl: A liquid highlighter with a soft gold sheen on a sheer pink base. As far as I can tell so far, it’s just as pretty as it sounds!
  • Posietint: The first three products are all described as liquids, but this is the most… liquid-y. It’s like the coffee cream to Benetint’s cranberry juice, if you will. Despite its milkiness in the bottle, this dries down to a really gorgeous translucent pink stain for lips and cheeks. Paraben- and silicone-free.
  • High Beam: As described, this is a ethereal pink liquid highlighter, and it might just be versatile enough to work on more fair and more dark skintones! We’ll see…
  • Erase Paste: I won’t be able to test this one personally for wear etc (Benefit puts Medium in the kits, and I’d definitely be a Fair), but I’ll try to find a medium-toned beauty to try it out for me! This is a (really, really) creamy concealer, with undertones that are a bit more yellow/salmon than usual to help brighten up those dark circles.

What’s the weather like where you are, lovelies? We’re knee-deep thigh-deep in snow, which is… less than optimal, to say the least. I mean, I adore snow, but this is pushing it – even for me! Hope your Monday’s going well tolerably (after all, it’s a Monday. Can’t expect too much!)

  2. ooh, i'm liking this!

    our weather's quite nice at the moment. meteorologists predicted we were going to have one of the worst winters in vancouver history but it feels like spring =/. maybe it'll hit us out of nowhere?

  3. p.s. i've had an SA swipe some girl meets pearl on my hand, it really IS lovely :)

  4. Ahh, you're wise, then ;) I'm rapidly falling in love with the three, as well!

  5. I'm jealous! Perhaps we got hit by your bad weather instead? :p

  6. Yes! Girl Meets Pearl is one of those products where you're all "eeh, it's just hype"… but then you swatch it and you're a gonner. So, so lovely.

  7. Ooh, will this possibly be available in Canada? (and at Shoppers Drug Mart, instead of Sephora?) and are the products a decent size? Thanks, Rae!

  8. It will! $40 at Canadian shops starting March – and it'll be hitting Shoppers, Sephora, Holt Renfrew, and Murale :P I'll include oz or ml with the full review!

  10. I hate that they always put the medium shade of concealer in the kits.
    It just seems like a waste for me to buy them!

  11. I know exactly how you feel! I mean, I understand why they do it (a lot more people are Mediums in Erase Paste than Lights), but I wish they didn't :P
