dandelion is a pretty blush

scarlette and benebaby are benefit MAs, so they'd be the best at giving you some info.

I like the Eye Bright pencil. A little bit on the inner corners of my eyes really makes me look awake even though I get up at 5 am every day.

The Maybe Baby perfume is also really nice. I've been thinking of getting the Maybe Baby shimmer body lotion as well.

Boo Boo Zap is also a pretty decent acne spot treatment that you can carry with you and it's invisible even when you apply it over makeup. I find that it's also soothing if you have one of those deep zits that are so painful.

I tried the Bathina Body So Fine and Touch Me Then Try To Leave body cream. They smell nice but I was not overly impressed with either one.

Georgia did nothing for me. I gave it to Janelle and I think she liked it. The items that I have from Benefit that I like are:

Benetint

Dandelion powder

Hoola

Lip plump

Oh La La Lift

Dr Feel Good

Moon Beam/High Beam

Brow ZIngs - love it!

She Laq is awesome too!

I was a big fan of Lemon AId and FY Eye but it creases on me now. I think they changed their formula. Gosh... I have a lot of Benefit stuff. Check out the coupon I posted for free shipping.

Oh yeah!! The Georgia powder is really nice!! I really don't see much as far as color... but I like the finish of it a lot... you can see a slight tint of peach - definitely worth testing if you go! (Thanks Marisol!!)


I also have Moon Beam & the Mr. Frosty pencil (Thanks to Pauline! :icon_love ) and they are both great too!! So far I'm liking everything I've tried from Benefit!


I want to try the Lemon-Aid next...

I have the Lip Plump (thanx for the rec Trisha!) - i really like this as a base before putting on nude colours. I love it under my fave nude gloss - Stila Praline lipglaze.

Hey there! I am currently in the process of a Benefit tutorials website.. I will demonstrate proper usage of our products, tricks, etc. It should be FUN! If you are going to try anything, try these:

-You Rebel tinted moisturizer (slightly tan, SPF 15, new formula)

-Get Even Powder #2

-Brow Zing (wax and powder combo for perfect brows, new formula)

-Lemon Aid or FY Eye shadow base. If your lids are super greasy, get the FY Eye. Some people use both. Lemon Aid first and then the FY Eye.

-Our new shadow palettes... awesome. Similar to MAC Mythology and Nylon frosts. 3 eyeshadows for $20!!

-Babe Cake liner palette. Dark brown and Black. Awesome stuff.

-Bad Gal lash or the Plush mascara for less thickness.

-Onyx pencil liner.. the best black e/l KOHL pencil I've tried.

-Dandelion blush or Benetint with High Beam on cheekbones.

-Lip Plump! Makes my liner go on so much better!

-Our new lip creme palettes.. they are great! Limited Edition!

-She Laq.. I can't live without it. It's a makeup sealant!

-High Brow and Speed brow = fierce brows

Besides makeup, try:

-The Wonderbod stuff.. it's awesome. I love Bum Deal and the Wondermitt!!! (To help with my Brazillian waxing ingrown hairs)

-Wooosh! Foaming face wash.. excellent face wash. Takes all the makeup off in like two seconds!

-Galactic Sheild is a concealer with acne medication.. love that!

-Maybe Baby fragrance! It's our signature.

We are coming out with TONS of really cool stuff.. you will freak! I already did!

Hi!!! So happy to see people talking about and loving Benefit
Scarlette and I are BFF's and partners in crime with Benefit. Here's what I literally will die without....

FYeye-keeps my shadow on for longer than cosmetically possible.

Lemon-Aid-For shadows that are vibrant and true. I layer this over FYeye.

Dandelion- A fool-proof, #1 selling face brightening powder.

BrowZing- People will wonder how your brows got sooo fierce. Wax and powder kit w/ mini brushes and tweezers.

BeneTint- Pretty much the best cheekstain ever made. X's on the apples of the cheeks and a little on the lips. Put Kiss Me Gloss over it....HOT.

Maybe Baby- The only fragrance my man will let me wear. He said it smells like a "real sexy lady"

Touch Me Cream- the name says it all. You will want to touch yourself all day. Wow that sounds a little naughty....

There is soooo much more, but I don't want your head and your pocketbook to explode. Page me with any questions
Good Luck!

I just bought the Touch Me Then Try To Leave Body Cream. It is the best stuff. My husband even asked me what kind of lotion I was using. Very light, but nice scent.
