Benefit peek-a-bright eyes

Benefit peek-a-bright eyes

My sister recently purchased the new Benefit peek-a-bright eyes illuminating kit, and at £24.50 I was excited to see the application and quality of this.

The packaging is really bright and I love the open flap design that a lot of benefit products seem to have. It has a mirror on the inside and comes with a liner/contour brush and a concealer brush. 

Inside the kit contains:

  • buff base shadow
  • warm chocolate countour shadow
  • pearly pink highlight shadow
  • eye bright
  • concealer brush
  • contour brush / liner brush

I gave my sister a quick makeover with the product and I was really pleased with the results.

* I applied the buff base shadow up to the brow with a standard shader brush. 
* I then applied the warm chocolate contour shadow into the crease, I blended this out with a Mac 217   
   blending brush, and also winged it out slightly to give a smokey look. 
* After I had applied those two colours I then added the pearly pink highlight colour to the lid of the 
  eyes and also to the corners of the eyes to brighten up the area.
* I applied the eye bright just under the eyebrow and also to the corners of the eyes.
* I added a black eyeliner to the lower lash line.
* I used Benefit's 'They're Real' Mascara on the lashes.

I really like the application of the eye shadows they are really pigmented and blend so well together.

This is great for a daytime look using the chocolate contour shadow lightly, but can also be used for an evening look by making it darker. 

Overall I really like this product, and I would recommend it highly.
