I have another review for you guys! As you makeup addicts know, Sephora always offers you birthday presents and of course it’s impossible not to take that opportunity! Sephora sucks me in all the time. Damn you Sephora! So, enough with the blabber and this is what i got!
- Too Faced Matte Bronzing Powder in Chocolate Soleil
- Too faced Kabuki (came with the bronzer)
- Benefit Watt’s Up! in soft focus
- Benefit they’re real! mascara
- Benefit dr.feelgood
As I mentioned before, Sephora always has these deals to offer you and one of the deals I had to take and it was only under 15 dollars. The two products that I got were the Too faced Matte Bronzer and the Benefit dr.feelgood mattifying balm
Too Faced Matte Bronzing Powder in Chocolate Soleil
- It’s very smooth and glides nicely
- The perfect matte bronzer color…at least for my skin tone
- Blends easy
- The color is build-able.
- It smells like chocolate. In my opinion..I like to eat chocolate- not smell like one!
Here’s the swatch:
This is one swipe! Remember, you can build the color.
Do you wonder what’s the difference between this bronzer and the Hoola Bronzer? Well…then today is your lucky day!
Here are the two side-by-side:
Left swatch: Too faced Right Swatch: Hoola Bronzer
On my skin tone, as you can see the Hoola bronzer is orange-y and no one here likes to look like an oompa loompa…right? When I swatch it, the hoola can be a bit chalky. Now don’t think I am hating on this Bronzer..I do very much like it, but oops, I found a bronzer that’s a better color for me. haha
What it claims:
“Mattify shine with our invisible, weightless balm. Pat and smooth over makeup or wear alone”
In all honesty….*Drumroll please*….. I didn’t see a difference unfortunately. I love benefit, but this product did no wonders for me. But- that doesn’t mean it won’t work for you!
Also, this balm has an unpleasant smell. I’d rather have no fragrance in my makeup products, but that is my own opinion. To me, it smells like a lemon. Again; just like the chocolate smelling bronzer; I would rather have lemon in my tea than on my face.
Ok Ok fine…I’ll say something good.
- Benefit packaging is always so adorable!
- The balm is velvety smooth just like they claimed it would be.
Alright, I saved the best for last! This was part of my birthday present from Sephora.
Inside was two sample products; Benefit They’re real! mascara and the Benefit Watt’s up! highlighter
Let’s start with the Highlighter shall we?
I’m really happy about the size they gave me honestly. It is smaller than my pinky, but how much highlighter do you really need?
Ok- How beautiful and perfect is this color?! It’s the perfect shade for highlight. It truly is the definition of “champagne” color. It blends very nicely on the skin and totally recommend it!
The last but definitely not least is the Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
I don’t have anything to say about this mascara expect that I LOVE IT! This mascara makes your lashes look like falsies and for a girl [me] that is horrible on putting falsies is a miracle. This mascara give you both volume and length and I can’t say anything bad about it!
I am most definitely buying the full product after I am done with this one.
Hope you enjoyed! Let me know what you guys thought and see you on the next one. xoxo
