Product Review: Benefit 10

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Benefit
Name: 10
Size: 10g / 0.35 oz
Approx. Price: $28 USD

During my recent sojourn across the border, I visited Sephora to pick up the benefit dandelion powder. However, it was sold out, so I decided to try benefit 10.

One half of this little box is filled is a satiny pink powder, while the other half has a bronzer. So you can "bronze & highlight in one sexy sweep".

To Purr About:
- Lovely pink highlighthing powder isn't too pink or too bright so it does give a nice highlight to my skin tone
- The bronzer is also a nice shade that isn't too overwhelming
- With one simple sweep, you actually do highlight and bronze and it does create a "sculpted cheek" look
- Very easy to use

Claws Out:
- The simple box design is a little too simple - I have to keep the plastic inner box tray in the box so that I'm not forced to leave the brush sitting directly on the powder, but it's a hassle to take the brush out, then the plastic tray every time I use this product
- Packaging doesn't make it something you want to tote around in your purse/make-up bag

Final Comments:
Although I was a little skeptical of this product when I bought it, it's one of my favourite purchases from my shopping trip. I have a pretty round face so I normally do the "blush on the cheek apples" thing and don't bother much to "create" cheekbones that I don't have.

With this lovely product, one simple sweep and then a quick blend actually creates a very subtle cheekbone image, which was a very nice surprise and very cool to see. Very easy to use, the only drawback is the packaging makes it difficult to carry in a purse for quick touch-ups.

Rating (out of 5):

I also just recently checked out these "kits" offered by Benefit at Sephora. I was kinda dissappointed at the kind of cheap packaging.
