Benefit 10 Review (a really cool bronzer/highlighter combo blush)

This is a cool product and a staple in my "must have/essentials" makeup bag. It is a pressed powder, and comes in a little paper box and a blush brush. It comes off on the brush VERY easily (I usually tap excess off). One side of the powder is a pink highlighter (to make your cheekbones look all "Gisele-ish" (okay, I wish, but it makes your cheek bones look more defined). The other half is bronzer and it makes you look skinny and sucked in. You use both at the same time, with the highlighter above the bronzer and you get the contoured effect. I usually have to blend the line with my fingers on my cheek. You can also swirl both together for a natural healthy blush. I usually do not wear a blush in addition to this, but sometimes I do. Let me know what you think about it! Again, my best advice is to try this stuff out at Sephora or a Benefit counter (try Macy's). Or you can buy it here.

Benefit Cosmetics Eye Bright

I have been waiting to review this product for weeks! I.LOVE.IT. This is my favorite new product in ages. Benefit makes such fun things. I have tried a lot of their stuff. I got turned onto this product after reading an article in a magazine. It said if you line your inner eyelids with this light pink eyeliner, it makes you look healthier, more rested, more awake. I thought it was probably all BS, but I tried it the next time I went to Sephora, and could not stop thinking about it days later. I loved the results. It really did make my bloodshot tired old full time working mom eyes look whiter and healthier. I have worn it every single day since I bought it weeks ago. You can buy it here. Let me know what you think! Did you like it as much as I did?

Next up...dying to try Colossal Mascara. It is getting very mixed reviews.
