Posietint ($28) is a bubblegum-pink tinted lip & cheek stain, which is similar to Benefit’s award-winning Benetint. It comes in an uber cute pink bottle with an applicator just like a nail polish and on my NC30 skin, it imparts a natural, dewy pink glow. To use, simply apply 3 dots onto your cheeks/lips, blend fast and voila! pink, flushed cheeks and lips that stay on all day.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog with a valid e-mail address along with your name. 5 lucky winners will be picked randomly and their names will be announced on my blog on October 3rd, 2008. One entry per person and US residents only. Good luck!

Eyecon, Benefit’s newest eye treatment, contains extracts of sweet almond and apple fruit and claims to nourish, smooth, depuff, and fade dark circles. Since I was running low on my Juvena Ulti-max Eye, I picked up this cute little gem from Sephora and decided to give it a shot.

I have been using it day and night religiously for two weeks. The texture is just like most eye creams – not too thick nor too watery – and sinks right in. Although it didn’t do much fading my dark circles, it is definitely moisturizing and soothing.

My biggest complaint is the packaging. I hate eye creams that come in a jar – it just feels so insanitary to scoop the product out using your fingers! But other than that, this eye cream did what a basic eye cream should do. Plus at $26, it is definitely affordable.

Bottom line, I probably would not repurchase when I run out and I recommend this only if you’re not looking for something heavy-duty.
