Misc Beauty Tools -Ben Nye -LiquiSet

on 2/11/2018 8:53:00 AM

I mixed it in my glycerin and aloe juice mix that I use as a setting spray (that I use regularly without irritation). I only used about 1/2 teaspoon of it for 3oz of fluid (glycerin & liquid). It smells less horrible than the pure liquid. But it made my skin burn and sting both diluted (as in the spray, I may try it with less and see if I tolerate it) and undiluted.

The smell out of the bottle is horrible, just unbearable. For me the smell alone is a deal-breaker. As is the skin irritation. I was hoping this would be a good mixing medium or liner sealer. Maybe I'm using it wrong?

Blush -Ben Nye -Creme Rouge

on 1/27/2018 1:08:00 PM


After reading several good reviews, as well as one (youtube video) by Wayne Goss, I ordered one of these in Carnation Pink. It's everything people have said. Good pigment, buildable, easy to blend. I've had it on for 6 hours and it still looks great. If you have really oily skin, you might want to blot and set with powder, but I just love the dewy finish.
THE PRICE is $7.00, for a generous amount! I would compare this to Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, but at a fraction of the price. Available online through various sources. This comes in about 8 different colors, I believe.
Get online and check out all of the Ben Nye stuff. They're super and super affordable!

Blush -Ben Nye -Blush

on 10/17/2017 9:03:00 AM


# Colouring: Natural colour on my NC15-20 skin. Neutral undertone. It's very similar to the shade "Natural Blush" in the same range, but of the two Vintage Rose is slightly more pink. ("Natural Blush" is slightly more brown-based and I think would suit those who are fair-medium and perhaps not those who are especially fair, say NC10-15.)

Vintage Rose is definitely more neutral and less pink than say the MAC Pro Blush in Rosy Outlook - one of my faves, beautiful for fair skin.

# Pigment: Great, as with all Ben Nye blushes. Although, Vintage Rose seems a tiny tiny bit lighter in application than some of the other blushes. I found this while swatching all of the blushes with my finger onto the underside of my arm. To be honest, I prefer it because it's easier to not overdo it :D

# I find this blush to be a great one for an everyday look, and it is also perfect for a professional setting, like in an office. I really like the no-nonsense, square little case it comes in, with the clear lid. It feels sturdy and you can pop the blush out for refills (use a q-tip to get into that little hole).

# Because the blush is quite pigmented, I apply it with a fluffy dome brush like the Real Techniques Blush Brush.

$ Price: Affordable. With the case it's $18 AUD. The refill pan is $15 AUD. I got mine from Scotty's (the best makeup store in NSW and Victoria - it also has really cool FX makeup which I am dying to try for Halloween.)
