Review: Benefit Benefaves

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Goood evening to you all!! I received a super cute box of Benefit Cosmetics #Benefaves last week complimentary of Influenster for review, so I thought I'd do a quick first impressions. Even though most people are very familiar with Benefit cosmetics and love all these products (which is why these were named "benefaves"), I have never been a big user so these to me are all generally pretty new. I had samples of mascara and primer occasionally from Sephora but I wasn't thoroughly impressed with them to be here we go again! 

I am most excited to try the Hoola Bronzer though, because some of my favourite Youtubers swear by it and I'm big on matte bronzers for contouring! 
As always, packaging is A+++. Look at this adorable pink box!! And each item has its own colourful packaging as well. 
They're Real! Lengthening Mascara
Claims: Lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes
Verdict: To be super honest, this was just not doing it for me. As mentioned, I've tried this mascara a few times in the past and was never wow'ed by it. Trying this for the 3rd time has confirmed the same results as the last and it hasn't lengthened or volumized my lashes in any noticeable way.
The POREfessional Face Primer
Claims: Minimizes appearance of pores and fine lines. Lightweight silky balm.
Verdict: I had the same results from this as the last time I sampled it. I am not a big primer user to begin with, but I do have a few I like (like the Smashbox photofinish one) but this one didn't change my makeup application for the better or make anything look smoother than it would without primer.
Hoola Matte Bronzer
Claims: Bronzing powder that gives a healthy, natural looking 'tan' year round
Verdict: I love matte bronzers and this colour works well with my skintone. The brush is super soft, making application a smooth process. The colour is also quite pigmented. The only thing I cannot agree with though is the price. Ive used a lot of bronzers from various brands before and can find a few cheaper alternatives that get the same job done. 
Claims: Eyebrow gel-cream that easily fills, sculpts and defines brows. Hard-angled brush converts to a full size brush for precise control and effortless application
Verdict: This was my favourite of the bunch. Love the hard-angled brush for really close application and to shape my brows. I also like how small it is because it makes it easy to fill in tiny sparse areas that are usually hard to fill in properly. I also love the gel-cream texture and colour - super blendable and natural looking! I would definitely consider purchasing.
