If you know me personally, you know that I do not wear makeup very often; however, I want to improve upon that aspect of my life. I like makeup that enhances your natural beauty rather than hiding yourself behind a painted mask. A few days ago, I received my recently purchased “Today’s Special” from HSN (the Home Shopping Network). It was a Benefit Cosmetics “Get Real Glamour 4-Piece Collection” for under $40. If you would like to purchase this set, it is now priced at $50 (free shipping):
I used this set (products listed below) along with a few other staple items to create an “easy-peazy” everyday look; see pictures below.
[Benefits Cosmetics “Get Real Glamour 4-Piece Collection”]
- Bad Gal Eyeliner Pencil – Extra Black
- Fine One One (for cheeks)
- Peek-A-Bright Eyes Compact (for eyes)
- They’re Real Mascara – Jet Black (included in kit, but NOT used for this look)
- Benefit Boi-ing Full Coverage Concealer (Shade: Light 01)
- Benefit BADgal Lash Ultra Black Mascara
- ModelCo Lipstick Lip Couture – Color: Emily
- Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara (for brows)
It was my first time using the Benefits “Get Real Glamour 4-Piece Collection” and I INSTANTLY fell in love!!! The instructions provided included pictures and all of the products were uber easy to use. If you’re a newbie to makeup and want something easy, yet stunning, GET THIS KIT!!! I’m also new to the Benefit Boi-ing Concealer and Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara; both of these products have earned a place in my “staple” makeup collection kit. They’re super easy and fool-proof to apply. I LOVE how my lashes look with the BADgal Lash Mascara (full and separated lashes with NO clumps) and the Boi-ing Concealer was perfect for the dark circles under my eyes.
I’ve always used Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara for my brows and on very lazy days where I know I’ll rub my eyes, I slap that puppy on my lashes as well. Lastly, the ModelCo Lipstick was included in my “Beauty Box 5” October subscription box and OMGosh! I LOOOOOVE this lipstick. I don’t normally wear lipstick, but this tube has totally changed my philosophy on lipstick. It is very buttery and blends in nicely with the natural color of my lips. The tube even has a little mirror on the side of it; tré cute!
