The Fab 5, Vol. 1: Benefit Cosmetics

Published in: Benefit, Makeup Tips/How To, Video


Welcome to The Fab 5, a new video series I’m starting where I’ll be rounding up (like wildcats!) various lists of five fab products in different categories and from different brands (think best o’ the beauty best).


In this first video, I share five of my favorite products from one of my all-time favorite brands — Benefit Cosmetics.

Products mentioned in this video

Thank you for watching, and have a great night (we’re gonna just stay in and rent a movie). Happy new year! Be safe out there if you brave the crowds. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Karen wishing you an awesome and healthy 2014! Thanks for all you do for us through your site! I have to ask though if you can share what is on your eyes. I have been “eyeing” (lol) your eyeshadow for the last posts! Loving them on you. Please please share. Xoxo

    I’m glad you’re starting this best-of series! Benefit definitely makes some fun things. I wear Sugarbomb and Girl Meets Pearl a lot, but I’ve been eyeing some of the other boxed powders like Dallas (kind of wish they were a bit more affordable, though!).

    I love Benetint so much! It’s effective, versatile, and smells nicely of roses 🙂

    Keep up the awesome videos, Karen! You’re an inspiration 🙂

    You make me want to try some of their cream shadows. 🙂
    Love your blog, by the way.

    I have Skinny Jeans and Birthday Suit, and I love both of them a lot! Other than that I haven’t had much luck with Benefit though. I know many LOVE LOVE LOVE Coralista, but unfortunately it is too frosty for me. Maybe one day soon I’ll discover something else from the brand that I love though!

    I own 3 out of your top 5 benefit products and i’m planning on buying dallas soonest. I think i saw the creaseless cream shadows on your blog and got hooked up. They are so awesome! I’m liking this kind of series, keep going Karen :*

    Love this brand! I just snagged some Benetint today and legitimately made my fiancé smell my lips after applying it. As a super fair skinned girl, I’m also a fan of their Hello Flawless–great SPF, and it stays put all day without feeling waxy, like some other higher SPF products I have tried.

    Hi Karen!

    Great Blog!

    I have a question regarding Benetint, I was wondering how would it go when applied on primer? Would you suggest it goes before or after primer? I used it years and years ago but that was before the age of primer, and true that it lasts longer under foundation!
