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.

  • 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!

    1. It is, Im still trying to figure out the pushup liner. Its very hard to work with and it dries up really fast :/

    2. Oh I see. It's definitely a product I would like to try sometime in future because am an eyeliner fanatic ♡
