I’m baaaaaack! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I totally took a longer hiatus than I initially planned, but my god did I need it. I had a fabulous family getaway in the Caymans for the holidays, followed by a nice week easing back into life in 2016. The wheels are turning for what I hope will be an incredible year and I can’t wait to get it all going.
To kick things off I’m sharing the latest innovation from Benefit Cosmetics, the They’re Real! Tinted Lash Primer. I received it before the holidays but didn’t get a chance to try it until I was back, and now that I’ve had a chance to give it a whirl I have to say it’s a pretty rad product. First off, it’s a double-duty deal – it can be worn alone as a low-key, natural mascara alternative or underneath your favourite mascara to better define and boost the length of your lashes.
On its own, it’s incredibly lightweight and provides a natural mink-brown tint to your lashes – perfect for days when you’re just not feeling a full-blown look. As a primer, it really helps to lift and separate lashes without clogging them with too much product (something I find can be tricky with many mascaras).
The primer is available this month for $31.00 (find it online here). Overall, I really like the product as an addition to my lineup. You can see in the photos it adds that extra oomph compared to mascara on its own – a little more volume and definition. Is it a must-have? Probably not, but if you’re looking to really take your natural lash game to the next-level, this will take you there.
