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.

FOTD- Bite of an Apple Blush & Wicked Ways lipglass

Forgive me I can't remember who it was but they asked me about these products on WOC. These were both great buys and as I said in my previous post this collection was worth getting!

The full look
Eve Pearl liquid eyeliner
Cargo mascara

Bite of an Apple Blush

Wicked Ways lipglass

Very quick and easy! I love how the glasses and lippy match but more importantly how white your teeth look with it on :)

Is this a lipglass that you would purchase?

Mini MAC Venomous Villains Haul+ Swatches

I am NOT one for MAC collections. Never in my life have I have attended a unveiling party or waited online. But this collection had so much buzz I had too... All together with tax everything ALMOST came up to $70.00 but it's worth it! This is what I got.

The first Item I got in store was Bite of an Apple blush.When I first saw this blush I said it could not be on NW45. I don't know if it was a bad swatch I seen on a blog but it was unattractive.
That is so far from the truth.. This blush is gorgeous! I am not a girl who needs obsessive amount of blush but after swatching in store.. I had to have it.

This blush is described Soft coral pink (Matte). It's very buildable and flattering for every skintone.

Wicked Ways is probably the most gorgeous lipglass I own.. and I own quite a few. It's a Deep fuchsia with pink pearl. I wore it today and got A LOT of compliments :)
This is the type of gloss that you can wear alone or on top of lipstick.
This definitely gets the Spiced Beauty stamp of approval. If this is still available I'd advise you to go and get it!
The last item I got from the Venomous Villains was a lipstick in Heartless. This is a Cherry red which is also suitable for multiple skin tones. I could also pair this lipstick with Wicked Ways lipglass.

I'm happy I got this lipstick because I need to venture out of my color safe zones LOL!
The last item I got was the VIVA GLAM Cyndi Lauper lipglass. I've been looking everywhere for a coral gloss but I couldn't find one. Honestly I don't like the lipstick but this look is gorge!
I love everything I got! Did you get anything from the VV collection? Or what do you plan on getting?
