Benefit They’re Real! Dual Purpose Tinted Lash Primer = The Perfect “No Makeup” Makeup Lashes

Available this month is the new Benefit They're Real! Dual Purpose Tinted Lash Primer ($24 US/$31 CAD). This multipurpose product can be worn as a mascara primer to boost length and lash separation, or it can be worn alone for naturally soft and defined mink brown lashes. I'm not really sure if I noticed a big difference using this with my Benefit They're Real! Mascara, as I love that mascara and consider it pretty much perfect as is for everyday natural volume and definition with amazing separation. It does contain Provitamin

Benefit Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer with SPF 20 Review

I'm not sure if they are more prepared for the demand this year, since last year's kit sold out so quickly, but better safe than sorry. The packaging is so fun this year. Bright green and pink with a polka dot party theme. The palette is a very sturdy tin and
