Benefit Cosmetics Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm Swatches

Last year was all about colour for me. This year, I'm more laid back with tints and balms.
On my radar right now, is Benefit Cosmetics hydrating tinted lip balms ($22.00 CAN).

A hydrating, fruity, tinted lip balm that conditions and glides on sheer.

Let me say this again. The keyword is tinted balm. As a girl with pigmented lips, I'm not looking for colour payoff just hydration. It's a bonus that these lip balms are very conditioning as well. 
They're perfect on their own or over your favourite lipstick.

Colours- According to the swatches below:
1. Lollibalm - candy orchid
2. Benebalm - rose
3. Cha Cha Balm - sheer mango
4. Posiebalm - poppy pink

My favourite balm is of course Lollibalm!
It works amazing with Lollitint which I reviewed back in January.

Do you have a favourite tinted lip balm?

Does Benefit Cosmetics lollitint work on brown skin? Pictures + Swatches

Tints are the perfect product to use for every season. 
It's long lasting and requires low maintenance.
I recently received Benefit Cosmetics lollitint ($36.00 CAN) in the mail and decided to give it a try. 
Our candy-orchid tint treats lips & cheeks to a “pop” of dreamy sweetness. It’s the flirtiest flush you can get from a bottle…and its smudge-proof, smooch-proof color lasts from A.M. to P.M. Talk about stain power.
"Sometimes you need to try something before you knock it."
This is my advice for 2014. Not just with makeup. It applies to food and overall life.
I seen this colour and never expected it to show up on my skin tone. It was milky and orchid.
Not I took usual colour I would gravitate towards.
Guess what?!?
I Tried it and loved it!

How to Apply:
Brush three strokes on the apple of your cheek and blend quickly with fingertips. Repeat on other side. Dab on lips & blend. For extra delicious color, repeat!

As a bride to be, this is the perfect product you have with you throughout your journey. 
Especially when you want to take your look can go to the next level!

Benefit Core Collection Swatches!

Last month, I had the opportunity to attend a really fun event at the Benefit Headquarters. 
While I was there, they unveiled the Benefit Colour Core collection for 2013. 
Doesn't the packaging remind you of that old Art deco feel? 
 The line also features one of the hottest trends right now for spring/summer- Pastels!

Thankfully, I was able to try out some goodies from the line courtesy of Benefit Canada! 
 If you have any questions, please ask them below.
Enjoy the swatches!

Ultra plush lip gloss
Our soft & silky glosses glide on sooo smooth, drenching lips in luscious color that’s never sticky. From crystal clear to hot pink, the luxurious formulas give your lips a kissable, sexy sheen.
Longwear powder shadow
This soft & silky shadow comes in 12 wearable shades and three finishes: matte, satin and sheen. From pale shell to brilliant silver, we’ve got you covered!

Creaseless cream shadow
..Crease-proof & budge-proof as ever! The 10 incredibly wearable shades (including original favorites r.s.v.p., birthday suit and skinny jeans) glide on easily and last all day long.

Cover-up goes incognito! This hydrating crease-control concealer - with Vitamin E & apple seed extract - hides dark circles & diffuses fine lines for a silky smooth, ultra-natural look. Available in three shades, it’s proven to keep skin hydrated for 6 hours!*
I know that this may sound crazy but I loved swatching everything in this post. I totally should start doing more posts like this. My favourite out of the bunch has to be the long wear powder shadow. Since I'm a dark/deep skin tone I didn't expect any of them to show up on me. The colours are actually really pretty. I feel like I want to incorporate Kiss Me, I'm Tipsy in every look.
