May '14 Glambox



This month it's all about BENEFIT! It goes without saying I am extremely happy with this month's Glambox, definitely one of my favourites so far.

Products received:
  • The POREfessional Primer
  • Big Easy BB Cream
  • They're Real Mascara
  • Fake Up Concealer
  • They're Real Push-up Liner
The POREfessional is one of my favourite products from Benefit. A Balm/Primer with a silicon texture that glides on the skin perfectly and minimizes the appearance of pores.

Big Easy is a BB Cream with a liquid to powder formula. It has light coverage so you can totally rock it on its own for a minimal kinda makeup day or as a base under your foundation for a not so minimal kinda makeup day.

They're Real Mascara is a mascara that is a favourite for so many people and definitely one of Benefits best sellers. To be honest, I wasn't a big fan of this mascara a few years ago, my lashes would always look spidery and gross. I used to prefer their Bad Gal Mascara. But I am finally converted, it took me long enough I know but I'm obsessed with how black, volumizing, and lengthening this mascara is, and it lasts ALL DAY!
Fake Up Concealer is not your regular concealer stick, it is a hydrating concealer stick. The stick is composed of two layer, the core of the stick has your typical concealer, and the outer layer has a clear gel that moisturizes and hydrates your skin. I never tried this product from benefit before and honestly, I don't think I will. The concealer has very light coverage and I like my concealers to conceal... Also, I don't know if its just the sample I received but my Fake Up stinks! (Tell me if yours does too in the comment section below)

They're Real Push-Up Liner is a new product from Benefit and Glambox subscribers are one of the first people to test it out (woohoo for being a rat lab, just kidding!). They're Real Liner is one of the first ever gel-liner in a pen. How didn't anyone think about doing this before!?!? This thing is amazing, it dries up really fast, doesn't smudge, budge, or flake after a few hours. This baby is super black, waterproof, and matte.


Extras:
  • Complimentary brow tint at Benefit's Brow Bar at Sephora.
Ps: All products I received are sample sizes.

I'll give this box a 9 out of 10 because it is always nice to get a box full of makeup goodies. If at least one product was full size, this box would have easily received a 10 out of 10 from me.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
