Benefit je brend čiji proizvodi su mi dugo već bili na listi želja. Imam pomešana osećanja kada su njihova pakovanja u pitanju, neka su mi preslatka i deluju retro, a kod nekih mi tipografija toliko smeta kao i izbor boja, da ih ne bih dotakla uopšte. Benefit je skup brend, da to odmah na početku kažem i cena je ono što može da vas odbije na prvu loptu. Međutim, dosetili su se da svoje proizvode upakuju u mala, probna, pakovanja, tako da vam se time pruža mogućnost da za cenu jednog full size proizvoda kupite nekoliko različitih manjih, da ih istestirate i onda odlučite da li ćete platiti punu cenu za neki konkretan.

Benefit is a brand whose products I’ve wanted to try for a long time. I have somewhat mixed feelings when it comes to Benefits packagings, some of them are so adorable with retro design, and some annoy me with weird colour scheme and typography. Benefit is an expensive brand, I need to write that at the beginning because the price is something that can reject you if you’re not familiar with the brand yet. Nevertheless, they made a smart move by producing test size of their products, so now you can try several Benefit products for the price of one full size. After that, you can decide if it is worth spending money on the full size.

Tako sam i ja stajala pred Benefit štandom i razmišljala šta prvo da isprobam, pa sam se odlučila za tri stvarčice koje mi definitivno neće stajati zaboravljene u fioci, već ću svaku iskoristiti do kraja. Imala sam sreću da uz tri kupljena mini proizvoda dobijem i slatki neseser. Odluka je pala na The Porefessional prajmer, Roller Lash maskaru i High Beam hajlajter.

That’s how I stood in front of Benefits display and thaught what first to purchase and try. I finally decided to take three products that I knew I’m gonna use up. I also had the luck that with the three products I got this cute travel bag. The magnificent trio that I’m gonna write you about is made of The Porefessional primer, High Beam highlighter and Roller Lash mascara. Price of a single item was around 10-11 EUR with a discount.

The Porefessional je definitivno najpoznatiji Benefitov produkt i isto tako najpoznatiji prajmer u univerzumu. Dopada mi se mint pakovanje i preslatka kutijica. Benefit ovaj proizvod naziva sigurnim tajnim oružjem protiv proširenih pora. Na kutijici je i rezultat istraživanja u kom čak 97% ispitanica tvrdi da koža izgleda zaglađenije, 91% kaže da su im pore izgledale manje, a 93% da je šminka trajala duže na licu. U principu, ovo su sve stvarčice koje svaki prajmer obećava. Ovaj je sasvim dobar, ima 7.5 ml, cena mu je bila, kao i ostalima, oko 1200 din na sniženju. Dopada mi se što je bež-rozikaste boje čime ujednači ten. Gelaste je struktre, klizav, dosta se primećuje silikon u formuli i lepo se razmazuje po licu. Čini lice zaglađenijim, mada mislim da nije rešenje za nekoga sa veoma proširenim porama, pa ga nemojte uzimati u tu svrhu samo. Šminka jako lepo prijanja na njega, lepo se blenda i traje definitivno ceo dan.

 

 

The Porefessional primer is definitely the most famous one worldwide. I like this cute little mint packaging. Benefit refers this product a secret weapon against pores. On the card box are shown results of a pool where 97% users say their skin looked smoothened, 91% claims their pores looked smaller and  93% stated their makeup lasted longer. Basically, every primer promises same effects. I can confirm that this little one is a very good primer. It contains 7.5 ml. I like its beige-pink tone which evens skin tone. It has gel-like texture, it’s silky, slippery,  silicony, and spreads wonderfully on the face. It makes the face smoothened, but I don’t think it might be a good solution for someone with very large pores, so don’t buy it only to fight pores. Combines very well with makeup and makes makeup last all day.

High Beam hajlajter mi je skroz presladak i najviše me raduje iz ove skupine. Dolazi u divnoj roze kutijici, i bočici sa četkicom poput laka za nokte. Nežno je pink, sa srebrnkastim odsjajem. Savršen mi je za instagram slike, ali i za funkciju koju obavlja. Iako je hladijeg podtona, na koži deluje fenomenalno. Moram da vam kažem, da imam veoma svetao ten, tako da nije iznenađenje da mi stoji dobro, ne mogu da potvrdim za tenove tamnije od mog. Ono što je sigurno, ne daje onaj napadni metalik sjaj, već deluje sasvim prirodno. Nanet na ključna mesta oput jagodica, iznad obrve, ispod luka obrve, na vrh nosa ili iznad usana, sjaji se sasvim prirodno, možda malo mokar efekat ima, i licu pruža osvežen izgled. Moram da dodam da je aplikacija pomoću četkice pomalo nezgodna, tako da ga nanesem na ruku i onda prstom utapkam na lice. Druga mogućnost je da ga pomešate sa svojim tečnim puderom čime se isto postiže blistavi izgled lica. Divan proizvod a više od ovih 7.5 ml vam i ne treba.

High Beam highlighter is a cute little fellow and my favourite one out of this trio. Comes in a sweet pale pink little box, and has a brush like a nail polish. It|s tender and pink, with a silvery pearlescent glow. I find it perfect for Instagram snaps, but also for a function in makeup routine it has. Although a cooler undertone looks phenomenal on my warm skin. I need to say that my skin is rather pale, so I can not promise this highlighter be great for deeper skin tones, but what is quite certain, it has no metallic finish, looks very natural when applied to the skin. On the key places (top of the nose, cheekbones, brow arch, chin) glows beautifully, looking perhaps a bit wet. Provides gorgeous refreshed look to the face. Application with the brush is a bit clumsy, so I like to put it first on my hand and from there to tap with a finger on my face until it’s fully blended. Another possibility is simply to mix it with your foundation for the shimmery healthy look. This is one gorgeous product and frankly saying, you don’t need more than this 7.5 ml.

 

Roller Lash maskara je moja go to maskara u poslednje vreme. Bez preterivanja je fantastična! Crna je, ima zakrivljenu gumenu četkicu koja savršeno prijanja uz oko i izvlači trepavice iz korena. Efekat joj je bolji u smislu izduživanja, nego davanja dodatne gustine. Trepavice podiže i blago uvija i izuzetno je postojana. Možete je koristiti za prirodniji, ali i za dramatičan look. Ne lepljuje trepavice i ne pravi gromuljice. Ne kruni se, ne rastapaju je suze, traje od trenutka nanošenja, pa dok ne poželite da skinete šminku. Ja je uklanjam uljanim sredstvom, tako da ne mogu potvrditi kako sarađuje sa micelarnom. Sada kad sam je konačno isprobala, mogu da razumem famu koja je prati. Ovo je sigurno jedna od najboljih maskara koje sam ikada probala. Mini verzija je identičnog dizajna kao i full size, jedino sadrži 4 ml.

 

Roller Lash is my go-to mascara lately. Without exaggerating I can say that this product is fantastic! It is black and has a curved wand that gets really close to the lash line. This mascara works better in terms of making lashes longer than denser. It lifts lashes and curls them softly and it is very longlasting. You might use it for more natural, or dramatic look, it is buildable and doesn’t smudge. Doesn’t stick the lashes together, doesn’t crumble, and doesn’t melt down. Stays equally on the lashes from the moment you put it until you decide to take off your makeup. I remove it with the cleansing oil, I haven’t tried to remove it with the micellar water. Now when I finally tried it and use it I can say that this is one of my favourite mascaras ever! The mini version is identical in design as the full size, only contains 4 ml.

Have you used some Benefit product and is there something you could recommend to me?

Jeste li koristili neki Benefitov proizvod i ima li nešto što možete da mi preporučite?

    Sve je preslatko i sve mi treba, a ja imam samo high beam, hmmm… A i na njega moram da se bacim, nije još korišćen, a na tvojim fotkama izgleda vrhunski. Moraću i ostalo da pribavim, pogotovo Pore fessional, kad stigne na red. Dopada mi se što ima i tu neku svoju boju, blagu 🙂
