PostSubject: Benefit cosmetics.   Sun Aug 19, 2007 11:17 am

I dunno if there's a topic on this already,
buttt there's a LOT of stuff I'd like to try by them.

besides "that gal" and the "boi-ing" concealer,
I'd so love to try the "realness of concealness" kit,
the "some kinda gorgeous" foundation fakerrr,
and the "dandelion" powder stuff.

oh, and that "get even" powder. mm!

the "you rebel" turns me off a little because of the metal tube - plus, Ive heard that it oxidizes way too fast because of the evil packaging!

but anyyyyyyways;

have any of you tried most of their products,
and how did they turn out for you?

there's mixed reviews on specktra,
but you know how they are. buahaha.

I think I'd try basically anything of it. Damn Sephora for being so far to drive, I'd go work there.

Boi-ing is a good coverup, but it's SO freakin thick and the colour options suck. It's a waste of £15 (/equiv) because you use is up so fast. Seriously it lasts like 6-8 weeks tops.

Gonna sounds like a brand-whore but MAC Studiofinish is way better! Better colour choices, better cover up, you don't need as much and it costs way less (£10ish) - especially since I've had the same pot for like a year and used 2/3.
I use it like every day and it hides of my circles way better than Boi-ing ever did.
People say that it's not as good for under your eyes cause it's not as malleable, but if you just get a good concealer brush (I use a lip brush... meh!) and work the product, it becomes much easier to blend!

*

I've not actually bought any other benefit stuff except the Bluff Dust (shit).
I had a play with Something Kinda Gorgeous but whatever it was supposed to do, it wasn't doin on me! Wasn't huge on the shadows or glosses either.
High Beam was okay, but I prefer using powders so...!

Sorry! Not a very positive post!

I love Boi-ing! Best concealer I've tried! I accually don't find it to be thick at all and it seems to last a looooong time to me. I've used it pretty generously for about 2 months and have barely made a small dent.

mm, I dont mind if the product is thick anyways, since I could always fix that with a moisturizer.

another BIG thing that I'm MORE than willing to spend 30 dollars on, is the Brow-Zing kit. I LOVEEEE brow work and it looks rad as hell.

benefit is amazing. I use their Dr. Feel good religiously and I am in love with their show offs. The mascara is also amazing, but I don't actually own any...I just put it on at the store when Im out.

I LOVE boi-ing concealer. The bad parts is there are only 3 shades but luckilly the lightest shade matches my skin perfectly =] It is the best concealer I have ever used.
I also love Babe Cake. Its a cake eyeliner that you add water or she-laq to. It has brown on one side and black on the other and it is really really easy to use, its the only eyeliner i have used which goes on perfect everytime! I highly recommend it.
I would like to try the de-puffing eye gel, has anybody used it and got good results?
I would also like to buy the "Honey, snap out of it" face scrub as I got a sample of it and it was really nice but I would like to know how well it works over time first =]

I loooove the bad gal mascara. Definitely worth it, the tube is huge so it lasts awhile. Although technically you should toss mascara after 6 months or so, I've have no problems with bad gal and have used it for over a year. It was a bit intimidating at first because the mascara brush thing is bigger than my eye Razz

Sadly they don't have a waterproof one puffy, but doesn't sally hanson have some product that you put over mascara to make it waterproof?

the one with the peachy smell colour? it looks rad to me, too; but I have heard accounts that fair skinned girls look orange with it on, so if you buy it, use a light hand! Razz

Yep I've heard that as well. I tend to use too light of a hand sometimes so that won't be a problem for me! Very Happy
