New Years Day - Just in Case Review

Happy New Year!!!

This morning, hubby and I decided to go for a walk, so I thought it would be agreat opportunity to try out my "just in case" kit from BeneFit.

  • First I applied "Some Kind of Gorgeous" which is a very lightweight "foundation faker". It seemed to disappear on me like a tinted moisturizer. But it did even me out a little bit. I doubt this would work for people with much darker skintones though. It was just about right for me.
  • Then I used "Eyecon" eye brightner all around my eyes. I think next time I need to use more because I am still seeing quite a bit of darkness. It is more of a light reflector.
  • Then I applied "California Kissin'" lipgloss to my lips. It has a lovely silky texture, and don't let the blue colour scare you. It goes on very sheer and gives your lips a lovely frosty look.
  • The final touch was "Benetint" lip and cheek stain. It goes on quite sheer and is very blendable and buildable. I used my finger to apply it.. and after washing it three times, my finger is still pink!! So if you have any tips on alternate application methods, I would love to hear them! It left a nice glow on my cheeks. I will try this on my lips next time too.
All in all, it was pretty good for a quick fix. The only thing I would do next time as an added extra step is add some kind of powder overtop to give myself a little more of a polished look.


  1. Great review and nice look!! I have a box like that from benefit but its got different things in - very handy to take around with you. I should do a review of mine.

  2. Is that the box that has the different concealers in that? I would love to hear about that one as it's on my list of things to try out.
