Benefit Coralista

Hey Guys!

Just a heads up that Benefit has updated it’s site and Benefit Coralista is now available for purchase now instead of February as originally planned! Click!

I was feeling kinda stingy and was hoping for Free Shipping with my order but at least I located a coupon code for 10% off which brought my shipping down to around $2.50 USD instead of the $5.48 USD they normally charged. I couldn’t see myself paying nearly $6 bucks to ship a little box of powder!

Anyway the moral of the story is you can snag Benefit Coralista plus 10% Off by using coupon code HEYTHERE

The Muse ordered hers and will bring a review and swatches shortly!

Reader’s Request: Benefit Lemon Aid Review

There happens to be a thin line between love and hate. The Muse happens to love and hate Benefit Cosmetics! Some products she simply cannot live without while others make her so mad she sees red. And so the relationship goes when you’re loving and hating someone or something in this case.

Benefit has been on a great winning streak with the Muse lately, take into consideration they are releasing Benefit Coralista shortly…whoa…has to be a win this Muse thinks…also remember how wonderful Benefit Posietint was! Another score! Obviously it’s been a rather great release of products lately but sometimes Benefit has a dud or two here and there!

However, today I’m not on the topic of hate but more along the lines of passionate, undying love for Benefit Lemon Aid. My tale starts with a request from a reader asking me to review a few of my very favorite Benefit items and in this case Lemon Aid happens to fall into the favorite pile!

My story is actually quite short as Benefit Lemon Aid doesn’t have a whole lot of hoopla attached to it. It simply is and does what it says without anything in between! The simplicity of Benefit Lemon Aid is the reason the product remains a favorite of mine for at least 10 years now (could be more!).

Benefit Lemon Aid is a yellow based cream base for eyelids. So who honestly needs a cream base for eyes? Generally speaking when we choose to conceal our woes we are most worried about what lays under our eyes but not above! Lemon Aid happens to turn the situation around and offers concealer and coverage for our lids instead of under our eyes!

Do we really need to conceal our eyelids? The Muse likes to think so. After concealing under my eyes I notice that my lids are sometimes a tiny bit red, dull, or just not very awake due to dull skin around the lids. I could probably easily just use concealer on top of my lids as well but honestly I’ve tried and it simply doesn’t work.

So here in lays my solution!

Whip out my pot of Benefit Lemon Aid and go to work concealing my lids. A little dab here, a little dab there and my eyes begin to transform and I’m looking fresher, more awake, and ready for my day!

Lemon Aid is yellow based and flattering on all skin types, it’s formula is creamy yet dense enough to create a nice base for the next step in your makeup routine (think MAC paint pot texture!), and most important Lemon Aid manages to transform woe skin to wow skin with a pat here and there!

Do you need it?

Hells yes. It’s Muse Approved so that along means you need it!

Honestly, I simply can’t live without this stuff. It’s been said you can easily use it to conceal dark circles as well but the Muse highly suggests going by the book in this case and sticking to applying on the lid. This isn’t for concealing under the eye but over it!

Wakes up tired eyes? Check!
Creamy, Moisturizing Formula? Check!
Works as a great base for shadow? Check!

I think Benefit Lemon Aid pretty much has it all covered! It’s part of my daily routine for years now and I highly recommend checking it out!

Fair warning: I’ve heard many people rant about Benefit Lemon Aid and I’m quite shocked as I think it’s the awesome! Personally I think it’s a product that you need to test for yourself to see if you’re standing on the love line or the hate one!

Love it?

Not really?

Benefit Coralista Powder Blush

What’s this I hear and see? A new boxed blush from Benefit? Benefit Coralista!!

I’m all over it!

Coralista

The Muse happened to be visiting Sephora’s Beauty and the Blog this morning and this snatched up her attention on the double! Beauty and the Blog is reporting this new coral colored blush from Benefit as a “candy color”!

Mmm the Muse likey alot!

I’m unsure when this will be releasing but expect a review as soon as the Muse can get her grubby, greedy little hands on it! I suspect they will hit us with this after the Holiday for the Spring Collection but we shall see!

Either way it looks divine and the Muse wants some thanks very much!

How about you?

Love it?

Want it?

NEED it?

Tell the Muse!
