A very exciting opening has happened in my hometown and I'd like to share the good news that,
SEPHORA HAS ARRIVED.
Ohmygosh, the level of squeals that came from my mouth was olympic sized.
I'm so excited that I finally have a proper makeup store with high-end brands to make my makeup dreams come true.
This past week I took a trip to my lovely little shop and grabbed an awesome kit from Benefit.
Full Glam Ahead is a kit made up of Benefit's Bad Gal Lash Mascara, Stay Don't Stray Primer, and High Beam Highlighter.
I've been wanting to try all three of these products for a while now so I was thrilled that they came in a small kit all together.
Let me share with you what I think of each product so far...
I absolutey love the packaging. Its not only great quality packaging, but they really pay attention to detail with the confetti, and pink theme. Adding the adorable polka dots makes for a marketing genius.
Bad Gal Lash
I've fallen in love with this mascara. The wand is absolutely massive, but not in a bad way. It still gives you tons of control and mobility. The best part is there is zero clumping, no matter how many coats I apply. It separates my lashes while giving them curl and volume. So let me tell you there ain't nothing "bad" about this mascara ;) har har.
Stay Don't Stray
As far a primers go, this is by far the best I've tried. You just can't beat to creamy consistency that blends into your skin. I tested it out with some eyeshadow the first day I got it, and by that night I had minimal to no creasing on my lid. And just to give a little background I have very oily skin, so that means I have oily eyelids as well. Fortunately that is not an issue for this product here!
Last, but certainly not least is this UH-mazing heaven sent product known as High Beam. This is probably one of Benefit's most popular products and has every right to be! I've been wanting a highlighter for quite sometime now and I've always been referred to this bad boy, so you can imagine my excitement when trying it the first time. I totally lost my highlighter virginity, and I'm glad it was with this one ;) The glisten and dewy-ness that this highlighter gives your cheeks is gorgeous. Its subtle enough to not make a person blinded by the glitter on your face, but noticeable enough to look beautiful and natural.
All in all I think its safe to say I'm this kits #1 fan! If you are even considering wanting to try any of these products I'm giving my 100% stamp of approval in saying you won't regret a thing! And if you are like me, and just want to dabble before plunging in, this kit is perfect for you, trust me!
If you have tried any one if these products before let me know what you thought about them in the comments!
