Thanks to Benefit, flawless skin is about to get easier for gorgeous gals with medium and dark skin tones. The line is expanding the shade range of their Hello Flawless SPF 15 Powders ($34 each; arriving on counters this May) with the addition of three new colors.
If the line is new to you, these pressed powders are designed to be layered. What I Crave (a toasted beige for medium skin tones), I’m Haute For Sure (an amber for dark skin tones) and Too Fierce to Beg (a nutmeg, also for dark skin tones) are perfect for everything from light veils of color dusted on with a brush, to heavier applications pressed on with a sponge (like, to disguise imperfections and blotchiness — hey, we’ve all been there). And they make it easy to get as much, or as little, coverage as you need.

When the line was introduced last year, the one thing I hoped to see from them was a wider selection of colors. Now, it looks like Benefit has obliged.

How was the rest of your day, young lady? The sun decided to come out (yay!) this afternoon, so Tabs took me for a long walk around the neighborhood.
Do you happen to know what this particular plant is (above)? Can you tell by the leaves? Whatever it is, Tabs is absolutely obsessed with it. He’s eaten quite a few of the leaves over the past few months. I think it’s some kind of vegetable, although I haven’t seen any visibly edible parts.
What are you up to tonight? I’m probably just going to exercise and turn in early. I know… Sometimes the excitement is too much to bear.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Oh, if you’re a makeup artist and a Shu Uemura fan, the line has what appears to be a pretty cool contest going on. Entrants in the Mystic Nature Beauty Competition will get the chance to showcase their makeup skills with Shu Uemura products to create looks built around a “Mystic Nature” theme.
The prize — brace yourself — is a spot on the Shu Uemura team! For information on the contest, check out the Shu Uemura Facebook page.
