Brand Bests #1 - Benefit Cosmetics

February 6, 2010

I decided to start doing regular posts on best buys from different brands. Know that this is from my experience with each item that I have loved from each brand. Also I'm going to pick items that are not limited edition, so you can always buys these products in store or online.

First post, we will start off with Benefit. I love mostly everything from Benefit. There are a few things I think that aren't worth the money in my opinion. But these are all the bests that keep me going back for more.

Dandelion Face Powder
 I really like all the face powders by Benefit, but this one is my favorite. It's very sheer and lightweight. It has a little bit of shimmer, which I like. You can build the color to either really sheer or dramatic. I rarely ever use the brush. I use my own brush, to me it's better. I kind of wish it wouldn't have the brush and the price would be a little cheaper. But worth it.

I just started using this makeup remover about a week and a half ago. I love this!! I hate some makeup removers that are way too oily or way too drying to the skin. Even makeup wipes sometimes bother me. At night, I just want to take all my makeup off as fast as possible and go to bed. This takes me probably less than 2 minutes to take all my makeup off. Afterwards, it kind of feels like it's going to be oily, but not at all. Your skin is completely soft and hydrated. 

I used this all up and now I need a new one. I love this all year long, but really more in the summertime. SPF 15 to protect your skin and very lightweight.  This is probably the only tinted moisturizer I have ever really ran out of and need more. haha amazing.

As most of you have probably seen, I have written about Brow Zings before in my brow post. But it is another Benefit Best for me so here it is again. It has everything with brow wax, brow powder, tweezers, two different brushes. What more could you ask for in a brow kit? Love it.

So these are my favorites from Benefit. 

 If you have a certain brand you want my favs on, let me know in the comments below.
What are your Benefit Bests?

  1. I so want to try the Brow Zing! But I have weird coloured brows, and apparently there's only like 2 colours to chose from :S I also want to try the blushes! But Im looking for like a more shimmery one :)
    Great post!

  2. I really want to try the makeup remover and the tinted moisturizer now! I have overlooked them so far!

  3. I'm so glad that Benefit's getting some blog love recently - they have some great little products. Some fairly crap ones but there's definitely some gems.

    I'm with you - I love the BrowZings - I have the medium set and have had it now for about 2 1/2 years and it's still going strong.

    I also love their High Brow/Eye Bright pencils and I have an assortment of their powders that I love.


  4. Great post & good reviews. I've never seen a face powder come with a brush like that but that's the kind of brush I use for my face powder-I don't know why. I just like the square design. I feel it applies it more evenly. But each to their own :)!


  5. Nice reviews. Thanks a lot. I will definitely look out for some of these products.

  6. I love the benefit box blushes but I get mine from ebay as they are so much cheaper! :) XO

  7. I love brow zings too! They're my savour! Lol.
    Also love Coralista, Dallas and Hoola xx

  8. I should try that tinted moisturizer. I've been looking for a good one. Great items. I love the idea of fav. products from different brands. How about NYX or ELF?

  9. I actually have never tried any of these. I had gotten a free cream shadow from sephora at one time by benefit but have never tried any thing else...
