“Hey, baby, can I perk you up?”
No, seriously…I’m pretty sure I met that dude on the cover of Benefit’s new pocket-sized $30 Perk-Up Artist complexion corrector palette at a bar in San Francisco’s Financial District some years back.
This was pre-El Hub, so I may or may not have allowed him to buy me a mojito, LOL!
Pink hearts, Edwardian Script, a cheesy dude with aviator glasses and little plastic covers to protect the three creamy face perfecting products from drying out? Benefit always does packaging right.
So what do you get in this travel-friendly palette? Basically, Benefit’s Lemon Aid, Boi-ing and Eye Bright, each in pot form.
There’s Correct, a creamy yellow for neutralizing redness; Cover, a medium beige concealer to mask under-eye circles; and Brighten, a pale pink eye brightener to give tired eyes a lift (just apply in the inner corners of your eyes).
Swatches from the left: Correct, Cover and Brighten
Could be a nice little addition to a travel makeup bag…
Look for it at Benefit counters and boutiques next month (but if you can’t wait that long, it’s posted up on benefitcosmetics.com now).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Almost Friday! And it couldn’t come soon enough.
I hope you had a good day today. Mine was aw-ite. I just hopped off the treadmill, and now I’m so ravenous that I could literally eat my arm.
Okay, figuratively. I could figuratively eat my arm.
