Benefit Life’s Little Correctors Color Correcting Kit Review

I feel like I hit the jackpot today! I wandered into Sephora while my mom and daughter were getting their hair cut and found the Benefit Cosmetics Life’s Little Correctors Color Correcting Kit for $20.

I picked up Lemon Aid last week and my mom wanted one so when I was looking through the Benefit display I found this great little collection that’s valued at $60.

I was thrilled to see that it not only came with Lemon Aid but an entire sampling of color-correcting products in 3 plastic cases that flip up.

Here’s what you get…

Case Number 1 – Boi-ing  in Shade 01 and Lemon Aid

Case Number 2 -Boi-ing  in Shade 02 and Lemon Aid

Case Number 1 –  Erase Paste in Number 2 Medium and Eye Bright.

Boi-ing Industrial-Strength Full Coverage Concealer

My mom and I both lucked out with the Boi-ing. I got shade 01 and she got shade 02. We both love it! Our dark circles are banished! Boi-ing has the same harder consistency that Lemon Aid has and blends super easily.

Lemon Aid is a favorite of my and why I bought this set. Here’s the Lemon Aid Review I did last week: https://queenofthegirlgeeks.com/2016/06/29/benefit-lemon-aid-color-correcting-eyelid-primer-review/

Erase Paste Brightening Concealer

Erase Paste is a super soft creamy Concealer, I accidentally sunk my finger into it thinking it was hard. It has a great consistency and my 71-year-old mom was able to blend out several dark areas on her face with super coverage. The Number 2 shade was a bit dark for me as you can see I have very fair skin.

Eye Bright

Eye Bright comes in a pencil if you buy it alone so I thought that it was neat to have it in a pot in this set. Eye Bright is a must have for anyone over 40. Dab a little bit on the corners of your eyes and blend with your finger to look instantly fresh. I seriously love this product!

So if you’re looking to try out the Benefit correcting line or get a little of each product this is the perfect set. I have a feeling this set is going to last quite awhile, you get a nice amount of each product.

So happy, happy day at Sephora today! I even kept the bag https://twitter.com/QueenGirlGeek?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Review

Last week I picked up the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil and I’ve been enjoying it for days! I really wanted to give it a good test before I wrote my review.

First of all I love the packaging. It looks like something out of Star Trek and is very utilitarian. Perfect for your purse too. You also get a little tips sheet which is very helpful.

What’s to love about the Benefit brow brush!

Or should I say…what’s NOT to love! This product is awesome.

On one end you get the eye brow product which is a pointed oval tip that you apply directly to your eyebrow, the other end has a brush to perfect the look. The Goof Proof is to much easier to use than a traditional eyebrow pencil. I think it’s due to the shape of the product.

I was a bit leary at first because it looks almost too easy, but that’s really the point. In less than 30 seconds you can have great brows.

The pencil comes in 6 shades from light to dark and is a twist-up style pencil that is long-wearing.  I got #3 which is the Medium shade.

Here’s me in the product (it’s really hard to take an up close make-up selfie but I’m learning). Keep in mind that I’m over 40 and that my brows are thinning a bit.

The pencil filled in my patchy spots really well. I also wear glasses so I am usually careful not to over-do my brows because it can look too busy. I think I succeeded with this look.

Over all I am thrilled with this pencil and will definitely be trying the other Benefit brow products.

Benefit Lemon Aid Color Correcting Eyelid Primer Review

I tested out the Benefit lemon aid color correcting eyelid primer this week and I am thrilled with the results.

What I love about lemon aid!

I just discovered this product and it’s perfect for correcting dark eye skin and redness. I use it on my lid,under my brow and even under my eye.

You get a 0.09 oz. pot of product in a compact with a mirror. You only use a tiny bit so it should last for a very long time.

The product itself is a really smooth yellow cream. Simply grab a dab with your finger apply to your eye area. I covered my entire eye area with lemon aid then brushed on the Grav3yard Girl Tarte shades of Uncommon and Haunting. I then added a light brush of Clinique mascara.

Overall I think this product is wonderful for women over 40 or anyone that has some dark or red areas around the eye. It definitely works to give your eye a little bit of brightness and who doesn’t need that!
