First off, the review for the Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream

This is actually my second sample of the Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream. I got my first sample when I received my BDJ Box Elite: Girls Night Out. I like that this eye cream has a lightweight texture making it easy to apply. It could be easily absorbed by the skin making it suited to be used before applying makeup. With that, there should be no excuses anymore for you not to use an eye cream during the day and before hitting the sack. Haha! 😛 It might be a bit weird to use for the first few days because you can feel that, somehow, it has a light stingy feel on the eyes. After that, every time you are going to use this, your eyes will just feel light and fresh. Say goodbye to unpleasant, groggy eyes! 😀

Next, the review for the Benefit the POREfessional and the Benefit Stay Flawless

These products are both makeup primers. They work differently but they complement each other in keeping your makeup looking perfect.

The Benefit thePOREfessional:

Here is a swatch of the Benefit the POREfessional. A small amount goes a long way. That swatch in the picture is already enough to cover the entire face.

This product could really help in minimizing your pores. It also smoothens your skin in preparation for your foundation or BB Cream application.

The Benefit Stay Flawless:

This may look like it has a bit of color when you see the product. But when you glide this primer on your skin, it just goes transparent. I like using this on areas of my face where I oil up the most. These are particularly the forehead, sides of the nose and my cheeks. This may not totally make you oil-free throughout the day but it can lessen the times you blot to get rid of your oiliness.

Next, the review for the Benefit Fakeup in 02 Medium

Here is a swatch of the Benefit Fakeup in 02 Medium.

The shade is just right for me. It could effectively cover up my dark circles but not really my other skin imperfections like blemishes and pimple marks. However, it still creased somehow. Just a bit, though.

If the concealer could not totally get all your other skin imperfections, achieving a perfect skin is just a breeze with the Benefit Big Easy in 05 Beige.

Here is a swatch of the Benefit Big Easy in 05 Beige. The shade is actually quite dark on me. But then, I guess the “self adjust” claim of the product is true because it turned out to look okay on me after blending it on my skin. 😀 Also, it has SPF 35 and PA+++. Sun protection is not compromised with this product.

It could give a medium to full coverage yet your makeup will still look natural. I guess this product could be perfect if you want to achieve a no-makeup makeup look.

Now, for that needed pop of color, the Benefit Lollitint and Benefit Benetint are here! 😀 Both of them are lip & cheek stains.

The Benefit Lollitint has a candy-orchid shade.

Here is a swatch of the Benefit Lollitint. Even though this product can be used for both the lips and the cheeks, I prefer using this as a lip product. It does look better on me as a lip stain rather than a cheek stain.

On the other hand, the Benefit Benetint has a rose shade.

Here is a swatch of the Benefit Benetint. This is much more runny as compared to the Benefit Lollitint. For this product, I prefer using this a cheek stain rather than a lip stain. This is because whenever I use this as a lip stain, the color goes uneven on my lips. As a cheek stain, it gives a natural flush of blushing color.
