As you or may not know, the month of April on the island of St.Maarten is annually scheduled with Carnival festivities. This year we celebrated 50 years with 3 weeks of activities that are still ongoing (more of that in my next post).
Having said that, we all know that Makeup plays a big role in finalizing our outfit for any occasion, it is like that invisible accessory that you always want to have! On April 11th, the team of benefit Cosmetics invited yours truly to their official launch at Vanity First.
I was pleasantly surprised to see the variety in products, but also their core platform, which is everything that has to do with your eyebrow. I was greeted by the Area Manager, Gisela Calero, that gives a new meaning to the words dynamic and energetic. I was offered a walk through their key products, their new ones and some that are still in the developing phase. It was truly exciting to have been able to absorb so much substantial information, that would assist me with enhancing makeup looks, by making it easier to apply.
After trying some of the products myself, I feel that I can give a brief description of the product but also of the experience. I will like to start with:
Prime & mattify skin with this POREfect trio! Smooth & minimize the look of pores with the original POREfessionalface primer, help skin look bright, boosted & awake with NEW Pearl Primer and overpower shine & absorb excess surface oil with Matte Rescue gel. For me this is great, as I have extreme oily skin!
Anyone that knows me, knows that I LOVE dramatic eyes, I always do a bold mascara or bold lashes. For those of you like me, you would absolutely love:
Badgal Bang Volumizing Mascara
36 HOUR* FULL-BLAST volumizing mascara creates MASSIVE volume without weighing down lashes. The gravity-defying formula builds volume the more you layer, and contains aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology. This innovative intense pitch black mascara layers easily for bigger & BIGGER impact. Its custom big Slimpact! brush is streamlined to reach root-to-tip, corner-to-corner, upper & lower lashes for BIG VOLUME WITH 360° REACH!
I am pretty sure, that applying liquid eyeliner, has always been on the top five makeup challenges, at least for me it has! Is always the panic of smudges, not getting that perfect wing, or lacking that finishing touch of the eye liner. I present to you this magnificent tool called: (drum roll please)
RollerLiner Liquid Eyeliner
Glide on a natural-looking, fine line with Roller Liner! Our matte liquid eyeliner features a precision felt tip for sharp controlled lines and a super-smooth application that won’t drag or jag. The quick-dry, waterproof* formula lasts 24-hours**. It doesn’t fade, flake or smudge so you can let the good times roll all day & night!
Contouring has been a big thing over the past few years, women are more interested in learning to do this themselves, than having to pay a Makeup Artist all the time. The next item that I will talk about is a 4-in-1 tool that can do this for your brows!! Yes you read correctly!
The Brow Contour Pro PEN
Define & highlight your brows with this 4-in-1 contour pencil. Our multi-tasking brow pencil features a lighter brow shade, deeper brow shade, edge definer and arch highlighter to create clean, shaped brows with depth & dimension. Turn shapeless, flat brows into defined, contoured brows in an instant. Available in 5 shades for a wide range of hair colors and skin tones!
I think this line has so much to offer: "Tripple F" (Fun, Flirty & Fabulous). Do not forget that you can check them out via: benefit cosmetics & of course locally via Vanity First St.Maarten. You would also like to know that St.Maarten shares the same price range as in the US, which is always a plus.
Enjoy the various benefits that this lines offer to you to enhance and be playful with your makeup. Remember BROWS are EVERYTHING!
