Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic
Benefit's Confessions of a Concealaholic kit
The great thing about bloggers is that everyone always knows what to get us. Fashion blogger? Shoes! Jewelry! Food blogger? Measuring cups! Hand-held mixers! Easy. (usually)
My lovely friend Drina is a blogger herself. As a food blogger, she knows the rules! So, I'm not sure why I was so shocked when she gave me this gorgeous Benefit set for Christmas (yes, I'm late at posting this!!) I thought it was an incredibly thoughtful and sweet gift :)
The set comes in a cute little box, which also makes it easy to carry around or travel with. It comes with a plastic cover to prevent the products from drying out (phew!)
Confessions of a Concealaholic contains six of Benefit's amazing products to conceal what you want to conceal and illuminate what you want to show of. It also has two double ended brushes that are marked so you know which brush to use with which product and a card with instructions. It really couldn't be easier!
The kit contains mini versions of:
-That Girl, brightening primer
-Erase Paste, brightening camouflage
-Boi-ing, concealer in shades 01 and 02
-Lemon aid - color corrector and eyelid primer
-Eye Bright - instant eye brightener
-two double ended brushes
I think this is a great kit for anyone who would like a introduction to Benefit's makeup line (or is looking for a gift for a makeup-obsessed friend!). I personally think concealing and illuminating are definitely Benefit's top strength, so if you have a chance to try out any of their concealers or highlighters please do!
The only negative thing I might have to say about this kit is that it won't work on darker skin tones. Even on my skin (MAC NC42), some of the products took some blending to work. If you have darker skin, please make sure you try out the products in the store or the kit might be a bust for you.
Thanks again, Drina!! This is a gift that will definitely be appreciated! I am actually going to take this on my next vacation with me :)
PS. I'm sorry that I've been missing (again!) - I have a post coming up with everything I've been up to, though! :)
