Being a Benefit Girl

It was a shame that I missed Sephora’s Friends and Family 20% off Sale last week. I had just purchased the items I needed from Sephora the week before. Perusing Sephora during the sale didn’t make me want anything. I don’t need to purchase something just because it’s on sale.

What I normally buy from Sephora is Benefit Cosmetics. This brand is young, chic, and trendy. I love their small lip balm pots but the one item I have been buying from Benefit for over 10 years is their Dandelion Blush.

Here are the Benefit Makeup I currently own, or did own.

1. Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette
Amazing palette so you can create that smokey eye look. I like the soft heather gray shadow and the pink shadow is actually the highlighter that goes from mid brow bone to corner brow bone. When you highlight along that brow bone, your eyes just POP.

2. Benefit Boi-ing Concealer
This concealer goes on smooth and easy. It doesn’t clump at all. It concealers all – dark circles, lines, acne, pigmentation of your skin etc.

3. Benefit Dandelion Blush
I have been using this blush for over 10 years. I LOVE IT. The pink blush goes on flawlessly. It does not cake on. Dandelion is very popular. It creates this beautiful flush that looks like you just stepped out of a hot shower, or you just had a blast somewhere.

4. Benefit Eye Bright
By lining this from the bottom of your eye along the bone to the outer corner eye bone area, this stick helps cover up dark areas and makes you look awake and alive. Remember to blotted and blend in to your skin. I also put some on the inner corner of my eyes for some impact too.

5. Benefit Dr. Feelgood
It’s been a while since I have used this product. Before I found a great dermatologist, I used Dr. Feelgood to cover up my pores. It was very lightweight and smelled pretty good. I also remembered it soaked up a lot of oil especially on my T Zone area.

6. Benefit Lip Balm with SPF15
I carry this little pot everywhere I go. First, I was looking for a light lip stain with SPF. I never used any lipstick before with SPF. My dermatologist had reminded me to find one for my lips because it could also be affected by UV sun rays. This tint gives like a Just Been Kissed vibe.

7. Benefit Silky-Finish Lipstick in My Treat
Goes on really smooth, no unwanted scent from Lipstick. It was very small and compact too. My Treat is a creamy, virbrant rosey color but it turned out to be a lot darker than what I am used to. I haven’t worn it much because I love the Lip Balm more.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.
