Charmy N.'s (charmedbeautyologist) Beauty Product Reviews
Revived my dehydrated skin
Since working nightshift my skin has become dehydrated some days. I use this as my nighttime serum so my skin can soak up all the benefits. By morning my skin feels hydrated and fresh. I do have oily combination skin and have had no complaints on excessive oil. I suggest using this oil at night.
I loved High Beam and Bene Tint!
The High Beam and Bene Tint are the highlights of this set and great if you want to try out some of Benefit's products before buying full size. High Beam gives a really nice pinky shine when used for a highlighter. The Bene Tint on my skin shows to be really natural, but I appreciate that kind of look. I did not, however, like it on my lips. I think that my lips are just too pigmented for it to make a huge impact.
The lipgloss has a nice consistency and I would recommend wearing over top a lipstick than by itself. It is a bit shimmery. The blush was a disappointment, it just appeared to be gold glitter all over my cheeks.
Good makeup remover and moisturizing!
This makeup remover doesn't remove everything, I've used other products that do work better. In addition, because it is a cream it may sting if it gets into the eyes. However, when I have leftover makeup I find in the morning I really like to use this product to remove it. I love that it's moisturizing and therefore gentle around the delicate eye area.
Incredibly fast acting!
I use this as a spot treatment for breakouts. A little bit goes a very long way. Within a couple hours to a day you can tell there is less redness and shrinking of the pimple. I've used many products for spot treatments and this is the most rapid and effective product. The only two cons is:
1. You have to be careful on how much you use, a little goes a long way. Other wise the area of skin where you put it really dries out the skin.
2. Depending on the breakout, this treatment could be painful while the ointment is taking effect.
Perfect for me
This mascara gives me everything I look for: length, volume, and holds my curl. It's all in the mascara wand, the densely packed bristles allow volume yet it combs out and coats lashes without clumping. It's one of my HG mascara! I would recommend this for longer length and thicker lashes only because the formula is wetter. It transfer to the skin easily when first applied.
Perfect Sunblock to protect your skin
The sun can be the most damaging element to your skin. This sunblock has everything down. Even with my oily combination skin - it is ultra sheer and lightweight. It does not make my skin any oiler or affect my makeup application. In addition, it is water proof, sweatproof, non-comedogenic, and PABA free. I apply this under my makeup 15 minutes before I apply my foundation. The only con would be the typical sunscreen smell. I have yet to find one without it.
