Brand Spotlight: Benefit Cosmetics

Calling all Benebabes!

Welcome back beauties! It’s been a while since I have posted something new here at Royalty & Beauty. In today’s post I will be reviewing some of my favorite products from the lovely Benefit Cosmetics. Let’s get started!

Puff Off Under Eye Gel

Retail – $29.00 USD

Benefit Cosmetics is also known for their glamorous packaging. I love the light cream colors on this product. This product provides a custom iron tip that helps with the application of the product. It is a highly recommended product from some of the best beauty bloggers!

This is one of the best products Benefit has. If you have bags under your eyes then this product is for you. I have struggled with puffy eyes and this was one of the best purchases I have ever made! It definitely works wonders. It’s a gel like substance that instantly smooths into your skin and works it’s magic over time.

Gently apply the product on fingertip and glide under eye area. Use the iron tip to assist applying the product. Use the fingertips to massage into skin. Apply your favorite concealer for that finished natural look.

They’re Real Mascara

Retail – $25.00 USD

When this product first launched it definitely had me wonder if it would make your lashes look like the ads on TV/Online. The brush is made specifically to plump those hard to get lashes in your inner eyes. I was very curious to see if this product was worth all the hype.

I decided to go with my gut and buy the product. I used it the next day as I was getting ready for a family party, and let me tell you it was amazing! It made my lashes look full and thick. I used it on my lower lash line as well and definitely made my eyes pop.

Gently apply the brush on lash line and wiggle side to side, lift up and down for maximum volume. Stroke upward to curl and separate lashes. Fan corner lashes outward with the custom-domed tip for that big glam look!

Tickle Powder Highlighter

Retail – $30.00 USD

Tickle me pink! This is one of my go to products when I travel. Packaging is to die for and as well as how pretty the color is. This product comes with a custom rounded blush brush and a mirror. Benefit never disappoints!

This silky-fine powder highlighter is irresistible. Use this feather-light powder highlighter along the cheekbones for that golden-pink natural look. Use it on the high points of the face for a peachy tone.

For a natural glow, slide along the high points of your cheekbones. For golden irresistible shimmer, apply over or under brow-bones and down the bridge of your nose. Pair it up with your favorite foundation!

The POREfessional: Pearl Primer

Retail – $32.00 USD

I’ve had a bad experience with primers before but this one is great. The power of this primer is amazing. This is one of my favorite primers following with Urban Decay’s. It’s called POREfessional for a reason!

This product is also a brightening for the skin. It minimizes the look of pores, locks the makeup and helps the skin look bright and hydrated. It’s very similar to the original POREfessional primer. This one serves a soft pearl pink texture.

Gently add the product on fingertips and gently massage into skin for a soft matte finish look. Use the product alone or under makeup as a primer. It definitely made my skin look brighter as it helped minimize the look of my pores.
