Review of BeneFit Cosmetics Play Sticks by dexters
This is my first review on these boards. I have found them ever so helpful in my quest for perfect make-up, so I wanted to also help others out.
I get my brows waxed at BeneFit, and they used this to cover the redness. She then applied it on my problem areas: around nose, chin, and eyelids as well. I could not believe how smooth and even the coverage was.
I bought the stick in Hide & Seek, and this is the first foundation that I have ever used up. I have tried everything: Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Bare Minerals, Stila, you name it. I have pretty dry skin, so I don't like powder foundations. I dislike liquid b/c I don't feel like they provide enough coverage. I have moderately clear skin, but redness around my nose, blackheads on my nose, and some light acne scars on my chin.
I apply this over my moisturizer, then use BeneFit erase paste under my eyes, and my skin looks amazing. I use a damp sponge to blend the play stick, and a Laura Mericer concealer brush to blend. I don't set with powder b/c I don't like the matte look.
This stick lasted me for 13 months, which is more than adequate time, IMO.
The ONLY bad thing is that Sephora does not sell my shade so I have to buy it from BeneFit store or online.
