Benefit’s latest creation left me very intrigued, I saw it appear a few times on Youtube and was keen to purchase one. Fortunately Benefit contacted me and offered to send me one to try out~ Essentially this is a retractable cheek and lip stick. It is made up of three different colours for different functions, the pink champagne acts as the highlighter, the sheer watermelon is the blush and the soft coral as the contour.
I love how easy this is to use, literally a single firm swipe up leaves enough product for you to blend out and give your cheeks a nice healthy flush. The product is generally quite sheer, which makes it more forgiving if you don’t get the angle right the first time.
As you can see in the photos below, I use my fingers to blend the product out. It has a mousse like consistency so it is very easy to blend.
I definitely think this is a great on the go product, once you get the hang of it you can use it whilst travelling without the need of a brush or additional products.
Benefit claims this can be used as a lipstick as well, personally I’d stick to just the cheeks as I didn’t find it very suitable for my lips (it was a bit drying). All in all, give it a go! I’ve got quite a bit of travel lined up for this year and you can bet this will make its way into my makeup bag 🙂
