Benefit Cosmetics Top 4 Products!

Over the past couple of days, I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary package, from Benefit Cosmetics Canada and Influenster, to test out their top products. It was definitely a nice 
surprise to receive so many amazing products in the mail, especially since I was just about to head to Sephora to grab a few things I had been running low on. 

Interested in finding out how I enjoyed these products, as well as how you can score free stuff from other awesome brands?! Well, you've come to the right place, because this is the post for you! 

The products came in an adorable pink box, filled with hot pink tissue, and an info card on each product. Two of the items in the package came as full-sized products: ka-BROW! (valued at $32 CAD) and they're Real! (valued at $31 CAD). The other two products came as "Miniature sized", which can actually be purchased in retailers like Sephora and Shoppers Drug Mart. The miniatures were: the POREfessional face primer (valued at $16 CAD) and Hoola Matte Bronzer (valued at $20 CAD). 

Now that we've got the product names out of the way, let's get into a brief review shall we?

they're Real! lengthening mascara: This might be a new favourite for me. Although I don't have the longest of lashes, this mascara did a wonderful job of separating each and every lash on my eyes. I also noticed quite the difference in length and curl. My only complaint? There wasn't a major difference in thickness of lashes, however, I'm not a big fan of thickening mascaras, as they can get clumpy over time. This one is a solid 9.5/10.

ka-BROW!: This product is a little power tool for the eyebrows. It comes with a pot of brow gel, and an applicator brush on top. It's great for travel. I barely had to dip into the product to get colour-payoff (compared to other brow pots I've used before). The consistency is very smooth, but has enough tack to it that it won't slide off throughout the day. The colour match was also perfect for my brows (#2 light). Overall, I give this a 10/10.

Hoola Matte Bronzer: The perfect bronzer for that "sun-kissed glow" look. I've been using a slightly more subtle bronzer for the past year, so this was definitely a change for me, however this is just the right shade to give me that warm touch without looking fake. The product itself is so pigmented, so I barely have to dip my brush into the pan to pick up any powder. It blends beautifully. I'll definitely be replacing my old bronzer with this one! 9/10.

the POREfessional face primer: Last, but certainly not least. I'm so glad this product has been introduced into my life. This is a great primer to use specifically on the t-zone. I use one of my more moisturizing primers on the outer areas of my face, and focus this one towards the centre where my pores are more enlarged. I noticed a huge difference in terms of the size of my pores, and smoothness of skin. My makeup looked flawless overtop. This is a definite 10/10. 

Will you be adding any of these products to your Christmas wish-list? I would definitely recommend it!
