Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation- I was quite excited to try out this foundation when I saw it was a bonus choice on Sephora’s website. I got the shade “I’m All The Rage” Beige, which actually turned out to be one or two shades too dark for my skin. The formula is really nice, however; it reminds me of the NARS Sheer Glow foundation. I felt like this was a bit heavier upon application it but after wearing it all day, I really liked the coverage and look it gave me. I would probably purchase this foundation after getting matched properly by a specialist.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara- This mascara came in a duo with a lipstick, which I’ll mention below. I have posted mascara reviews recently and I can still say I really like this mascara. It goes on very nicely, coating each lash, and makes them look really good. I felt like I could see every lash but it also volumized and make my lashes look really nice and full. I would definitely pick up a full sized version when I’m in need of mascara.

Make Up For Ever Lipstick in No 9 Copper Pink- I’m not really a lipstick kind of girl, but this is a lovely shade that’s versatile to wear during the day or on a night out. Copper Pink is more of a fall shade but it could be a good evening spring color. The formula is really light, making your lips look smooth and feel moisturized. If I wanted to try a new lipstick, I would go back to Make Up For Ever.

Kate Somerville Daily Moisturizer- I am a firm believer in a good moisturizer, and this Kate Somerville product was a good choice. It reminds me of milk… if milk came in a gel-like formula (weird, I know). It’s very light and smells good, too. The moisturizer took good care of my skin and lasted me all week.

Make Up For Ever Setting Spray- My make up always stays in place throughout my entire day, so I have never needed a setting spray. I decided to give this one a chance since it came in my package. I felt quite stupid spraying something in the direction of my face. Once I did spray this on, however, it just felt like water misting my skin. I didn’t see a big difference my make up staying, but if someone needs a setting spray I’m sure this would be a good choice.

Kate Somerville Mega-C Dual Radiance Serum- This little duo is for those who want some added radiance and extra care for their skin. I gave this one to my mother so she could try it out since it promotes youthful-looking skin (but it obviously does more than that). I have always been a fan of dual products, and my mother ended up enjoying this one as well. The only issue she had was that the “Mega-C” part irritated her skin, causing to her experience a burning sensation after application. But once she put the other part on top, it helped to relieve the burning. So if you get this product, use it with care!
