Benefit Ultra Plush Glosses

Benefit has added a new gloss to match their best selling boxed blushes. I just love the blushes so, of course, I had to try their namesakes’ matching glosses. Check it out!

The glosses come in squeeze tubes. They are decorated to match their coordinating blush. They all have a cherry sent with a slight cherry flavor. They are slick glosses and have a little stick, but not much at all.

Bella Bomba is a gorgeous rosey red, Coralista is a beautiful hot coral color, Dandelion is a shimmery peach shade, SugarBomb is a mauve shade with shimmer and Dallas is a gorgeous nude. They are all beautiful! Hula is also available.

I purchased these from HSN, but I saw the full sized glosses in Ulta the other day. They retail for $16 each and the travel set retails for $26. A full sized gloss is .05 oz and the travel glosses are.22 ozs each. You can order the full size glosses from www.benefit.com, www.ulta.com, www.sephora.com and www.hsn.com. You can also purchase them at Ulta and Sephora stores.

I purchased these products and as always these are my own honest opinions.

MY Thoughts: Tarte Cheek Stain and Benefit Stains

I like both Tarte and Benefit Cheek Stains, but when it comes to ease of use and removal, I have to go with Tarte.

Have you tried them? Which do you think is the better product?

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup Foundation

Benefit has released a new brightening foundation for Spring 2012.  It is called Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow.  I really like it, although at first I thought this was going to be a miss for me.  I will repurchase:)

It comes in a pump, which I really like!  It keeps it from getting contaminated by icky germs.  Yuck!!  Its really thin and runny and this is why I didn’t think I would like it, but I was wrong!  I actually really like this foundation!  My face looked really healthy and brighter, without being “in your face” beaming.

This is a light to medium coverage foundation.  Its oil free with an SPF 25PA+++.  It has an Oxygen Hydrating Complex, which I haven’t been able to find much information on, but Benefit claims that it helps boost cellular respiration and prevent the signs of aging.  I’m all for that!!

It comes in 9 shades and retails for $34.  I wish that the shade range was larger, but 9 shades for Benefit is a big deal!  Honestly I’m surprised their range is that big.  You can purchase it at Sephora, Ulta, Benefit online or anywhere Benefit items are sold.

Have you tried it?  If so, what do you think?
