Benefit is sometimes just too cute for words. And by that I mean the adorable products do what they promise, and the packaging pretty much says it all. Take the Benefit January 2014 launches, for example. Benefit Agent Zero Shine Shine-Vanishing Pro Powder is a new mattifying-loose-powder spin-off from The Porefessional pore-minimizing balm/primer. And new Benefit Lollitint Lip & Cheek Tint delivers a sweet, dusty-rose flush Benefit has cleverly called “candy-orchid” for you younger-types. I don’t have to say much more — here, look:
Okay, a few more words: If you’re cheek-tint shy, worry not. The swatch on my hand was a generous application of the milky Benefit Lollitint. It’s a little deeper pink than Posietint, I’m especially thrilled with it because it’s a perfect companion to my new obsession: I’ve been putting Maybelline Color Elixir in 040 Vision in Violet on my cheeks as well as my lips; Benetint Lollitint is a happy, happy non-lipgloss alternative.
As mentioned at the top, Benefit Agent Zero Shine, aka Benefit The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine Shine-Vanishing Pro Powder ($36, sephora.ca) and Benefit Lollitint Lip & Cheek Stain ($36, sephora.ca) both launch in January 2014.
