Benefit POREfessionally Pretty ($31.00)
What it is: A skin-perfecting trio that helps you achieve a smooth and bright complexion.
What it does: Quickly minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines with The POREfessional, and blend away imperfections with Erase Paste brightening concealer. Your luminous complexion will be complete with Girl Meets Pearl, a soft, golden-pink liquid pearl luminizer.
This set contains: 0.11 oz Erase Paste in No. 2 Medium, 0.25 oz Girl Meets Pearl, 0.75 oz The POREfessional
My Thoughts: This kit is amazing! The POREfessional is a great primer -I mostly use it on my T-zone area and it minimizes my pores and also keeps it from getting oily throughout the day. I’ve also used it to prime my whole face a couple of times and it worked wonderfully. I really have nothing bad to say about this primer. It’s one of the best primers I’ve ever tried and I would definitely repurchase it again.
The Erase Paste is pretty good as well. It has a very creamy consistency, bit sticky but not too much, stays on all day and does a really great job on brightening my undereye area. I would probably repurchase this product again.
As for Girl Meets Pearl, I didn’t really see what’s so great about it. To me it was just another highlighter/illuminizer. I already have the High Beam which is my favorite so… yeah lol. But it is a pretty good product though. The color is different from the High Beam. Maybe I’ll use it more later on this summer :)
Benefit Legally Bronze ($38.00)
What it is: A kit containing all the products needed to create a gorgeous bronzed look.
What it does: Bronzed & beautiful—Gild-y as charged! This mini-makeover kit has everything you need to look bronzed to perfection.

My Thoughts: Oh MY Gosh!!! This kit is amazing!!! It is such a great deal! I mean really… the Hoola Bronzer alone is $28.00!? & the High Beam is what… $26.00 or something!? And this kit, with 4 items that are full size is only $38.00! Who can pass that up!?
I’ve actually been wanting this kit since, November/December 2011.. it was actually on my Christmas list and well, what do you know? I told you I’d end up buying it myself lol. Any who, I’ve been meaning to buy this kit for so long now but it’s been out of stock and FINALLY it was back last week so I just had to get it.
I refused to buy the Hoola Bronzer alone because I knew about this kit lol So I was like, I’ll wait and thank you Jesus! lol Anyways, the Hoola is an amazing bronzer. It’s definitely my favorite (along with the Milani Bronzer in Light). It’s the perfect color for my skintone, it gives me a nice sunkissed glow and doesn’t have any shimmer, and the best thing of all… it doesn’t look muddy over time! I love this bronzer. If you haven’t tried it yet, you are missing out!
High Beam, what can I say!? This is my favorite highlighter/illuminizer ♥ I have about 2 sample things of this (which I haven’t even managed to used up yet, because really… a little bit of it goes a long way) but having this full size just makes everything so much much much BETTER! lol
Gilded, I was pretty excited about this actually. The color looks beautiful and it IS! I love using this on my bottom waterlines and on my tear duct area. It really brightens/opens up the eyes. It’s a wonderful product :)
BADgal Brown, as for this mascara…I’m not sure if I’ll even use it at all. But we’ll see :) I have the black one and I LOVE IT! (It’s what I’m using now) So I’m sure I’ll like the performance of this -holds my curls, gives it volume and length, doesn’t flake off and it lasts all day!… I just don’t know if the color will be good on me.

Oh, another thing is that I love the micro beads in it. It’s not too harsh on your skin when massaging it in so I love the feeling… it feels like you’re exfoliating :)

Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation ($39.00)
What it is: A complexion-enhancing foundation with SPF 15.
What it does: This oil-free, fragrance-free formula with SPF 15 sunscreen is made with Lancôme’s Aura-Inside™ technology, which recreates the true, natural light of perfect skin. Its lightweight texture enriched with soothing rose extract provides 18 hours of hydration and sheer to moderate coverage for a natural finish without a cakey effect. It creates a complexion that looks beautifully bare and lit from within.
My Thoughts: This is my HOLY GRAIL LIQUID FOUNDATION, next to my Double Wear by Estee Lauder. Honestly, I would repurchase this over and over and over again. This is actually my 2nd bottle, my first one.. I bought at the end of September 2011 and it is now almost gone. Any who, this foundation is lightweight, has medium to full coverage, lasts all day (I’ve tried it for up to 10hrs), oil free, fragrance free, has SPF but doesn’t have a white cast on photos, looks natural and has a semi matte finish. I love this foundation! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! ♥
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural ($29.00)
What it is: A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish.
What it does: Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.
My Thoughts: Another product that I repurchase :) My first one was from June 2011 and it is now gone, April 2012. I really love this powder. A lot of powders that I’ve tried in the past, can look a bit cakey but this, it looks natural and the color suits me perfectly! Also, it lasts all day and is oil free.
