Review: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl

17 Feb

Hello everyone! Another mini-sized product from Benefit is going to be reviewed today. I’ve recently been loving the brand as they release out such great sets. This sample came from a Christmas set and I also have another one waiting to be used from the new Porefessionally Pretty set.

Description: For a healthy glow reach for the Girl who Meets Pearls for the first time. A golden pink cream to enhance and luminize the skin.

Review: Since I got the sample sized version of this (two of them actually) I just like how it dispenses the right amount of product but when I went to go try ou the full sized version I didn’t like how it dispensed the product. A quick Google search will bring up photos of this glue stick in which the product is dispensed through the top with a screen of sorts. I feel as though the packaging made sure to dispense a lot product and you couldn’t really control the amoun that you want. The product itself gives your skin a really nice glow that isn’t too glittery nor does it seem fake like High beam does on my face. As for the texture of the cream it is very smooth, blendable and just seems to glide across the skin. I use this mainly as a highlighter for my face but sometimes I mix it with my foundation to create a glowy dewy look without looking too oily. I love this product but the packaging and price puts me off purchasing another one well, I always have sample sizes to work through.

Cost: Full-sized $34CDN @ Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques

Would I recommend this product? I would this is a really nice highlighter for the skin

Review: Joe Fresh Five Minute Face Palette

5 Sep

Hello everyone! So I picked up this palette and was playing around with it this weekend and finally a review on it! Insert many many photos. (come to think of it, this is the first time I have reviewed anything with eyeshadow and included swatches…)

Swatches –

Review: I’m going to review it in parts but as a good note the eyeshadows and blushes are FULL-SIZED!! (hooray for more bang for your buck)
Eyeshadows consists of Pale Pink, Bronze, Expresso, and Midnight. Pale pink really is a sheer color and works as a nice sheen over the lids; bronze has a subtle sheen like pale pink kinda coppery without too much shimmer; expresso looks pretty matte brown shade but has some shimmers in it; midnight is all out blackened silver glitter discoball fun for those nights out. Overall the eyeshadows are pretty pigmented and are soft enough to work with. There was a lot of fallout with Midnight but I guess that was kinda expected.
Cheek products are Pink blush and Tan bronzer. Both have shimmers in them (but subtle so that they help create a glow on the skin), and they are both really soft powdery blushes. Downfall is that they are too soft this leads to a lot of fallout on the palette itself and they are like MAC sheertone blushes (just there for some shine and not much color).
Lippies are Mauve gloss and Plum cream lipstick. I dislike where these were placed they are smackdab in the middle and there are many opportunities for eyeshadow or blush fallout can fall into them. But the shades are really nice mauve is a bright light pink and has pink shimmers in it (kinda reminds me of Stila’s Pinkle Twinkle lipglaze). Plum is a semi-dark berry color and is extremely creamy and easy to apply on the lips. The lipgloss wasn’t as sticky and stuck on pretty well throughout the day. Both the lipstick and lipgloss were very pigmented and were extremely moisterizing (A+ for moisterizing factor!).
A really well put together palette.  

Cost: $20.00CDN at your local Loblaws/Superstore

Would I recommend this palette? I would recommend this palette as a great starter for those starting out with makeup. This palette would be great for those who only have a limited amount of time in the morning (as it was intended for) or to transition a day look into a sultry night look. Those who have a lot of makeup you can skip out on this palette it’s nothing to awe-inspiring (and you probably have most of the shades  already).
