I was shopping a few weeks ago when I got distracted by the Benefit counter and ended up buying some brow and eye makeup products that I definitely didn’t need. Of my purchases, my favorite so far is the blue mascara — it’s so lovely and adds just a touch of color, and I’ve been using it almost every day.
I also received a bunch of samples from Benefit. I have a love/hate relationship with samples, in that I love to get them, but hate when I fall prey to their design to get me hooked on a product. And the one that caught me this time is the Dandelion Shy Beam liquid highlighter. I love it SO MUCH.
It’s a highlighter but it’s matte, so instead of looking sparkly or shimmery (not that there’s anything wrong with sparkle, but sometimes it’s just not the look you’re going for) you end up with a soft, subtle glow. It just adds an understated warmth to my skin. And I like that it’s liquid so I can use it for point highlighting. It’s easy to blend out and way less messy than my powder highlighters.
Basically, I regret getting this sample very much because I’m definitely putting some of my next paycheck towards buying the full-sized version. XD
