Again this is a close second to baby lips but I like using it when I am doing a strong eye shadow or smoky eye, just gorgeous. Think Belle De Jour it is a very pretty pink!

I wear this lip lacquer most days on its own or under lipstick. Gorgeous pinky tawny colour. It is a little tacky but I like that texture and it stays on!
Eye Shadow -Napoleon Perdis - Loose Eye Dust - Blue Velvet #8

I really love this colour, I have a few of the loose eye dusts and totally rate them. I pat them on as opposed to the sweeping, I always use a primer and a little foundation followed by a base neutral colour. You can also mix this product with some of their eyeliner sealer which is awesome. You can build the colour vibrancy up. I still think MAC eye shadows are the best but these come a close second at a lower price and there isnt a lot of other options out there in the nz market. They just need more colours and palettes. My fave look with the blue velvet dust and that is to use in combination the champagne mixed with eyeliner sealer and when it dries to smoke out with a YSL eye shadow (midnight blue colour sorry dont know name or number as part of a handbag set with other colours) but really any dark navy/midnight with or without a shimmer effect with work and then I dab on the velvet afterwards. I line my top and lower lashes with black eyeliner and then apply the eye shadow (midnight blue). Dramatic but effective.
I love this product, this is an easy every day blush that I wear. I love it, I will alternate with the others but I love Dallas. In summer a light sweep is enough or for a more polished but sun kissed look under foundation this does the trick. It warms up the skin, looks great.

It is a shame that this product didnt work out for me, I think I am too olive in skin tone. However, I gave it to my girlfriend who is very fair almost alabaster and she sweeps it over her face and some gentle highlighting at the cheeks. Looks good on her. However, if you are more medium to olive tone I would try it first before you buy.
By far one of my fave BeneFit products, I use this on it's own and in conjunction with Thrrob blusher if I am wanting a stronger look. Also works on the lips. I prefer to the original tint as it is softer on the skin.
Love this product and I alternate between Moon Beam and High Beam. Both I wear in winter but in summer. Both products are outstanding, a little goes a long way and they just add a little bit of highlight in the right places. I apply on the top of my temples, cheekbones and sometimes just under my brow bone. I like that you can wear the product without foundation or blush and it gives you a luminous look without much effort.
I retract my previous review of this product. Previously I complained that it was powdery, that you needed to apply wet and the brown wasnt suitable for my skin tone etc. I also said the brush wasnt easy to work with as it was quite bristly. I have persevered with this product and am pleased to say that I have mastered a technique that works well for me. I apply the wax and the dark brown powder and gently feather over my brows, I keep doing this to get the right amount of colour and fill over the brows and the plus is that it stays in place as the wax wets the powder and it all stays on and well groomed.
