I spotted this new Benefit product at Sephora and it looked cool! It's the Benefit Fine One-One Sheer Brightening Color for Cheek and Lips. It seemed like a perfect new essential.

Just before I was going to purchase this, the store's associate came up to me and asked if it was okay if she applied it on me. When she did the first swipe, there was no color on my face which was disappointing. Then, she swiped it a second time. Still no color. She seemed shock herself. The third time she pushed kind of hard on my face and the color finally showed up, and I'm going to be 100% honest with you guys. I didn't like it. It looked...unnatural on my face. There were 3 colors and the orange color was not flattering on my skin. Maybe it's because I'm slightly tanner from my vacation? I have no idea, and then when she blended the colors onto my skin, it seemed as if nothing was there. She complimented me how "beautiful" I looked, but I honestly saw nothing on my face than what I applied in the morning. I ended up not purchasing this product because I was not really in love with it and it is $30.00 which is pricy for this 0.28 oz stick. 
I have to say, I was disappointed in this product. I was super excited for it because it reminded me of the NARS Multiples. :(

Swatch!

The orange color is VERY orange looking

  1. If you want to earn more when you become a therapist or holistic practitioner, then it would make sense
    to have an open mind and move away from the mindset of treating your private practice as though
    it is a hobby, right. There are also those who
    deal with athletes who need a private physio therapist to ascertain their health condition in a frequent interval.
    As a masseuse, you also have the opportunity to earn tips.
