Giveaway!:: Benefit's 15hr Stay Flawless Event Vancouver

Benefit 15hr Flawless


Summer can be the least exciting time to wear base makeup, I admit even I am trying to sneak in a few foundation-less days during the past weeks as the weather suddenly rocketed in Vancouver. It seems like with the passing years we are teetering away from the mild transitional temperatures and plunging into a duality of rain versus sun. But sometimes you've just gotta show up and bring your best face with you so Benefit Cosmetics has devised an easy 1-2-3 plan to get you flawless in a snap.

  1. Definitely wearing a face and eye primer for sure! I'm lucky that I don't get too oily during the day nor do I ever need to be in makeup for 15 hours, but it's good to know that there is a product out there that can make that happens!

    I have Thursday off so maybe I'll go stalk Wendy ;)

    I have dry skin so i really need to moisturize everyday right after i dry my face from shower so that my face really absorbs my moisturizer insted of my foundation when i put it on wait about 5 mins apply primer and exfoliate once a week since if i do it more than that my dryness goes worse but still need to get rid of my dry flaky spots. To exfoliate i use honey and sugar best exfoliator ever for dry skin, is gentle but gets the job done and the honey hydrates your face.

  64. To help my makeup last all day, I make sure to apply generous amounts of primer to my oilier t-zone area. Blotting papers are also a must! Instead of having to apply more makeup onto your face to reduce shine, like blotting powder (which can look dry and cakey after one too many an application), blotting papers eliminate that problem, removing excess oil, while still leaving my face dewy-looking :) Thank you for the giveaway! These products look like a great weapon to combat the humidity in Ontario :D

  66. Since my work day is 12hr, I can not leave the house without face primer and eye primer. Those two combined help me set my makeup for the whole day and I don't have to worry about eyeliner running or foundation smudging. I might look a little dewy in the end, but at least my makeup has stayed put!
