Benefit Cosmetics: My Picks
I worked at a large beauty store in between college and law school, and I took the opportunity to soak up every bit of makeup and skin care knowledge I could get. While I worked there, Benefit was introduced to the store and I fell in love with their makeup! Over the years, I've used a variety of Benefit products, and I thought I would share a few of my favorites with you.

1. They're Real Mascara
This is my daily, go-to mascara. I love the shape of the wand and the fact that it works to separate and define my lashes as it increases the length. I also like that this is water resistant - it's not waterproof, but I like to wear it during the summer (even scuba diving), and it generally stays put, while at the same time, not being too difficult to wash off at the end of the day.
2. Boi-ing Concealers
I have used the original Boi-ing and currently am using the brightening version, and I like them both. I love the brightening version I'm using now - it does double duty as a concealer and highlighter under my eyes!
I over-plucked my eyebrows in the 8th grade, and they never fully recovered. Thanks to a lash serum I've been using for about a year, my brows do have some fullness back, so I've transitioned to a brow pencil, but for years, BrowZings was my go-to brow product. It's a combo of a tinted wax, which helps shape your brows, and a tinted powder to fill them in and provide a natural finish. This is a must if you have sparse brows!
Benefit has a lightweight daily moisturizer and a more penetrating deep moisturizer that are both great! Benefit also has a small value kit that lets you try the moisturizers before buying full-sized versions.
5. Watts Up Highlighter
I've been using Watts Up for a few months and love it. Now that I'm using the Boi-ing Brightening Concealer, I use Watts Up less on my face, but I am still using it in the corner of my eyes. It's not an overwhelming shiny finish - just a glowing brightening finish.
6. Coralista Blush
This is a blush that works on almost every skin tone and type. It's my favorite of the Benefit blush collection.
7. Vanity Flare Nude Eyeshadow Palette
This is a perfect palette for daily use. Benefit's eyeshadows go on smoothly and stay on all day, and these colors are classic.
8. Value Sets & Beauty Kits
This is one of the ways Benefit truly shines. I already referenced the small-sized moisturizer kit, but Benefit is great about combining products into gift-ready value sets and beauty kits.
