Perk up that summer selfie with Benefit Cosmetics’ two new “babes”, these makeup bits are as cute as ever! This summer step out with Benefit’s two new eye-catching products. First in line is their NEW Big Easy Oil-Free Liquid-to-Powder base (“Better Than BB”) with SPF35 to protect gorgeous you from harmful UV rays, and candy-crushin’ Lollitint their lilac/orchid color-of-the-year inspired (aren’t we hyphening lots today) lip and cheek tint. I’m going to use both these products together when I show you because it just makes a whole lot more sense that way :). This is a quickfire reaction and review!
BIG EASY SPF35, 35 mL / 1.18 US fl. oz. (Php2000.00)- BIGGER than BB! Why? Two reasons. First, big easy balances moisture & controls oil. Second, the cushiony liquid-to- powder formula melts in like a cream, yet finishes lightweight & velvety like a powder. This multi-balancing complexion perfector gives light-to-medium natural coverage to even out skintone and conceal imperfections. Non-comedogenic. Oil-free. (Available in 6 shades)
LOLLITINT 12.5 mL / 0.42 US fl. oz. (Php1700)- Our candy-orchid tint treats lips & cheeks to a “pop” of dreamy sweetness. It’s the flirtiest flush you can get from a bottle…and its smudge-proof, smooch-proof color lasts from A.M. to P.M. Talk about stain power! (For a heavenly flush apply hervana orchid-blossom blush on top of lollitint.)
First thoughts on BIG Easy, it’s basically, generally Benefit’s version of BB Cream. The coverage is sheer to moderate and I’m pretty sure you can build it up, however it does tend to feel moderately heavy because of the higher level of sun protection. It smells mildly of standard sunscreen, the smell that the general, urban public have on them when they head out to shore, nothing offensive. The smell is clean and standard issue. I like the non-dewy, fresh finish of this, OOTDs in the sun will need less blot sheets on hand. Read more to get the full review, see application, and also check out Benefit Lollitint!… Read the rest
