I’ve been looking forward to share with you some exiting new launches from Benefit Cosmetics for Autumn/Winter 2016. I recently went to their Press Day where they introduced the latest collection of some new skincare products, makeup and Christmas Gifts. So today I will be sharing with you the fabulous new They’re Real Big Sexy Lip and Eye Kit, keep on reading to find out more and see swatches.
They’re Real Big Sexy Eye Kit* comes in a gunmetal grey tin inspired by one of their best sellers – the They’re Real Mascara, I love the packaging! The kit contains 3 Eyeshadow duos and a little shadow blender sponge. It’s literally so easy to use all you have to do is slide the applicator onto the eyeshadow and then sweep across your eyelid by making sure the lighter shade goes the lower part of your lid along your lash line and the deeper shade in the crease of your eyelid. You can also reapply for even more dramatic look, I like to go over it and blend the edges a little with a fluffy blending brush. It really is super easy use this kit, the shadows are creamy and blendible and last really well without creasing. I know a lot of people struggle with doing a smokey eye so this kit would be perfect if you are a beginner or just want a quick fix. I’m always rushing around these days so never really get time to apply eyeshadow, so this kit comes in really handy 🙂
Next up we have the They’re Real Big Sexy Lip Kit* which contains 4 all-in-one Lipstick and Liners designed to be super easy to use. The lippies look like a mini version of the They’re Real Mascara with a custom teardrop tip designed to work as a lip liner. To apply you have to position the pointed tip along your upper lip line and glide on then turn it the other way for the bottom lip.
These are really nice and moisturising, they feel like a lip balm when you apply them but they are quite pigmented, I love the shade selection, we have Revved-Up Red, Lusty Rose, Flame Game and Pink Thrills. All gorgeous shades but if I had to pick a favourite I’d probably go for Lusty Rose, it’s the perfect everyday lippie.
So pleased Benefit decided to expand the They’re Real family by bringing out the two new kits, I think they are great and would make a fab Christmas gift.
