My Benefit Collection

Besides the beautiful packaging, Benefit is really well-known for their high quality cosmetics. Thankfully, here in Portugal, it is super easy to find their make up, both in Sephora and in the Benefit Boutique. I really love this brand and I'm blessed because all the things that I own from it. I decided to review everything that I own at the moment and share with you my thoughts about everything. Just keep reading to figure it out.


Probably one of the most famous highlighters amongst the beauty community, the Watt'sUp! Highlight is the perfect balance between a natural glow without a lot of shimmery. This champagne colour is perfect for a dewy cheeks, specially if you have a medium or high skin tone. It has a creamy consistency and a small sponge to help you blend it out. About the packaging, I have to tell you that I love this format a lot and it is super useful and easy to keep around with you. Definitely, this is my favourite highlight ever and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a new one!

When it come to my holy grail of mascaras (and also a super famous and well-known mascara amongst the beauty community), Roller Lashes Mascara has to win that title. This mascara lengthens evenly my eye lashes like no other mascara does and doesn't leave clumps at all. Its applicator is pretty perfect for an everyday use and it separes the lashes and define them! It stays on my lashes forever - or for the whole day, that's pretty much what I want - without melting or smudging. The only con about this mascara is that it can be a little bit hard to remove but if you have a good oil to remove eye makeup you will be just fine.

They're Real Push.Up Liner is a matte black gel eyeliner pen with a waterproof formula. I'll start by saying that I'm not the biggest fan of this eyeliner because it just doesn't work out for me without smudging after a few hours. Plus, I found the applicator really hard to use although it really helps doing a perfect wing. The texture of this one is also a con for me and unfortunately I can't do a line without clumps. But on the bright side, it has a bold colour, and it's perfect for doing a thicker line. I only have this pen in travel size but this is probably the one product from Benefit that I don't like so far but I'll keep playing with it. Any tips on how I should be using this product?

This Life Of The Party Box aka "Beauty Blowout" is a full-face makeup kit with 7 travel sized products and 2 brushes. Starting with the face primer, the first step in every makeup, The Porefessional is a balm that minimize the appearance of the pores, super easy to apply and to blend ant that really smooths the skin. Then, you have Dandelion, a ballerina-pink brightening face powder that works both as soft blush or a face lightening powder and Rockateur, a rose gold cheek powder that gives a flush cheeks. This kit includes 3 different nude-shimmery powder eyeshadows, in the colours Call My Buff (a pale shell colour), Nude Swing (a soft rose gold) and Taupe It Off (a golden brown). I don't find this shadows really pigmented but they are perfect for an everyday makeup because of their neutral look. This kit also includes the versatile Benetint, a rose-tinted cheek and lip satin that is perfect for an innocent yet provocative look. Finally, because no makeup is perfect without some mascara, the They're Real Mascara is the perfect final touch for your full makeup look with this box because it lengthens the eye lashes with this long wear jet black mascara. Overall this kit is a great value for the money because everything that it offers!

Do you own anything from Benefit? What do you recommend me to get next? I need to confess that I would love to acquire the Hoola Matte Bronzer and, from their recent collection, the Hoola Zero Tanlines Body Bronzer really soon. Happy Tuesday!

  24. A Benefit está entre as minhas três marcas preferidas, sem dúvida! Desde o conceito às embalagens...uma perdição!
    Poderia recomendar-te um montão de produtos, o problema é escolher o melhor! Ahahahah
    Mas sem dúvida que o que eu mais uso de todos é o Browzings, super investimento! Extrema qualidade!
