Review for Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Shampoo - 7 hours, 46 minutes ago

Since I had a small sample packet of this that didn’t come with the matching conditioner, I wasn’t especially expecting to see major results from this volumizing shampoo,...

But color me impressed! First off, it lathered up beautifully and smelled divine in the shower (I detected some citrus notes and thought to myself that I wouldn’t mind a perfume that smells like this shampoo). Second, I felt like my hair was a little thicker as I washed it out. Because my straight hair is super thin, I can detect even the slightest difference even when it’s wet. So that was a pleasant surprise. But now came the big reveal: actually drying my hair. It loves to fall flat and make me look ridiculous. But it actually had a little more body than usual and the volume actually stayed for over a day. I know I keep saying “actually”, but that’s how surprised I was LOL I cannot emphasize enough how flat and lifeless my hair usually is,...

I’m confident that if I bought a full size of this with the matching conditioner I would see even better results. Adding it to my wish list now!!

Review for Klorane Sun Lightening Spray, 4.2 oz - 7 hours, 59 minutes ago

I received a small sample of this product, and for a lot more use out of it than I thought I would, so I got to use this spray in my hair for over 2 weeks and really see if it worked,...

It definitely brought out my blond highlights. My hair is a light brown color with natural blond streaks that I’ve had since I was a child,... Generally they’re more noticeable in the summer because of the sun, but I used this in the winter when my blond is not very noticeable at all. Within a week, I saw a clear difference. I liked how it brightened my hair without looking unnatural or brassy. I did notice that this spray worked better with the corresponding Klorane products (the matching shampoo/conditioner). But even on its own, it definitely brought out the blond with just a couple of spritzes every time I washed. It didn’t dry out my hair or add any frizz either, which was a pleasant surprise. I would definitely buy a full-size.

Review for Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara 01: Obsidian Black-Colorless - 8 hours, 8 minutes ago

Received a deluxe sample of this mascara and used it until the very end,...

It was easy to apply, the black pigment was very opaque on my lashes, the brush did a good job of getting all of my lashes, but this mascara just didn’t WOW me..... I was mainly looking for volume and definition, and this didn’t give much of either. It was okay for length, but that’s about it. It also tended to flake after a long day out and about. I liked it at the beginning, but the tube started to dry out within a couple of weeks and became a very dry clumpy formula that wasn’t as nice as it was when I first started using it. I probably wouldn’t toss out another sample of it, but I definitely wouldn’t buy it.

Review for Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Sexy on the Run - 8 hours, 41 minutes ago

Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
This is a great little set if you’re looking for makeup to travel with, or if you want to introduce a friend to Benefit products,... It comes with the They’re Real Mascaras in both black and brown, the They’re Real Makeup Remover, and the Push Up Gel Eyeliner. The mascaras, although not technically waterproof, stay all day without budging or flaking. They give gorgeous length and natural volume reminiscent of false lashes. The eyeliner is known for its pigmented color and stay-all-day durability, plus it’s a good starting point for someone who struggles with applying eyeliner. This gel dries quickly and the angled tip allows you to get close to the lash line for a thin application. The makeup remover is fantastic at getting all of the above off without stinging your eyes or leaving any residue. Overall, this is a fantastic gift and a reasonable price.

Review for Benefit Cosmetics they're real! sexy steal - 8 hours, 50 minutes ago

This really is a sexy steal, especially if you’re already a fan of the They’re Real Mascara...

The mascara gives gorgeous length with a nice bonus of natural volume, and it doesn’t budge all day long (even though it doesn’t claim to be waterproof, it really is). The deluxe sizes of the eyeliner and makeup remover are a nice bonus, and give you an opportunity to try them out before splurging on full sizes. I’m personally lukewarm about both products, but don’t mind having little travel sizes to use in between products. Definitely recommend this as a gift for yourself or a friend.

A cute little travel set for someone who already loves Benefit products, or somebody who has never used the brand before (this is a nice introduction that won’t break the bank). The They’re Real Mascara is known for its waterproof durability and gorgeous length, and the Push Up Liner is known for its opaque pigment and easy gel application. If you already know you love these products separately, this is a perfect TSA approved set to travel with! Not as good of a deal as the full sizes when you do the math, but still a steal considering.

If you’re a fan of the eyeliner, this set is a steal. It has a full size Push Up Liner, and deluxe sizes of the makeup remover and mascara. The “They’re Real” line of Benefit makeup is known for its durable waterproof pigmented quality. And this gift set is a good deal on top of the quality you know you’re getting. The liner is a matte opaque black that is great for a thin line that won’t budge all day, the mascara gives amazing length and natural volume that looks like false lashes, and the makeup remover will get it all off without any scrubbing or stinging your eyes. Definitely a great gift for yourself or somebody else!

Review for Benefit Cosmetics they're real! eye makeup remover - 8 hours, 59 minutes ago

It was super gentle, didn’t sting my eyes, and got 99% of my eye makeup off. I even used it for a red liquid lipstick and it was a painless quick process.

Definitely works best at removing Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening Mascara and Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Push-Up Eye Liner .... But I’m positive it would work great at removing other brands of eye makeup as well (since They’re Real products are known for their stubborn waterproof durability).

My only issue with this makeup remover (and why it loses a star) is that you have to use quite a bit for it to work well. So it seems like a waste since the tube isn’t very big. And I also have found other makeup removers that I love and prefer (like Clinique Take The Day Off™ Cleansing Balm). So if you’re a die-hard Benefit brand fan, go for it. It really is a good product. But if you are looking for a makeup remover that you won’t have to purchase regularly, go for one that comes in a large jar instead of a small tube.

Review for Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Push-Up Liner - Beyond Brown - 9 hours, 5 minutes ago

So, this eyeliner has a lot of controversy. You either hate it, or you love it. I guess I’m somewhere in the middle because I do like it quite a bit, but it’s not my favorite. I’ve received deluxe samples over the years and use them every time.

This is a very pigmented gel liner that glides on pretty easily and doesn’t budge all day long. So that was really nice, knowing that my eyeliner wasn’t going anywhere all day. That also means it’s a little difficult to take off at the end of the day (unless you use Benefit Cosmetics they're real! eye makeup remover). But that wasn’t a dealbreaker for me. You click the bottom of the tube and it dispenses just a small amount out of the angled tip. I liked how easy it was to apply, although I didn’t find it super convenient for a winged eyeliner look because I’m so used to using a brush tip for a crisp line.

Here’s where my opinion of the product wavers,... It can dry out if you don’t use it regularly. It doesn’t always glide so easily depending on how the tube is dispensing that day. It works great for a bold matte eyeliner (both in brown and black), but it has a couple of small flaws that make me hesitate before buying. So try it out for yourself,... See which group of people you belong to. The ones who hate it, or the ones who love it. Once you know which side you’re on, you’ll either never touch this Benefit product again or you’ll buy it all the time. Just see for yourself.
