Review: Benefit F.Y...eye!

What it claims: The ultimate eye shadow base that does not crease and leaves the eyelids feeling silky and matte to the touch.

How to use: Apply a small amount to area above the lashes and blend upward and outward. Apply eye shadow after three minutes.

Ingredients:Cyclomethicone, French Chalk, Filtered Mineral Oil, Nylon-12, Natural Clay of Quaternium-18 Hectorite, Beewax, Tribehenin, Propylene Carbonate, Silica, PEG-4 Diheptanoate, Emulsifier of Sorbitan, Sesquioleate, Aluminum Myristate, Emollient of Dimethicone, Isopropyl Titanium, Trisostearate, Fragrance, Anti-Bacterial Agents of Methyl, Butyl, Ethyl & Propyl Parabens, Natural White Titanium Dioxide, Ethylene/Methacrylate Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Iron Oxides.

Price: $22.00

Where you can buy it: Sephora, Ulta, and anywhere else Benefit is sold.

My Rating: 4 peace signs

The Good: It's very light and has a whipped consistency to it, but firm enough that it doesn't get watery or runny. It's very soft and blends into the eye area very nice. It leaves a very smooth canvas for makeup and it makes blending eye shadows very easy. I really love that it's in a pot so you can get to all the product. It has really good staying power, I only seen very minimal creasing around 10 hours of wear and even when I removed my makeup after 12 hours there still wasn't any major creasing, which for my super oily lids is really great!

The Bad: It has a weird old lady perfume smell to it. I also kinda don't like that you have to wait 3 minutes to start applying eye shadows because I'm the kind that really just wants to apply and get right into putting on the makeup, but if I'm not in a hurry it's ok. I would also like to test how this holds up in different weather to see if the the staying power is the same, but other than that I really like it.

Overall: It's not my UDPP but still a good product, I could see myself still using it though.

*Just MY opinion of this product*

You know I used to use this before I moved onto UDPP. When I first got them, it worked for about 3 months and then afterwords it went downhill. I loved it for the first three months and I even raved about it to my friends. Then after three months I told them not to get it... lol~ Hopefully, it will be better on you than it was on me.

Jessica Dee-lol your funny! Yeah it's pretty gross but it does go away once it's on for a couple mintues, but everytime I use it I just think of old ladies! lol

Alyssa-hmm well we'll see how it goes! I have a feeling I still won't use it as much as my UDPP though. I do the same thing! I'll tell all my friends then once I start to not like the product, I go to them and make sure they didn't buy it. lol.
