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!)
