Review- Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes

This little kit with BIG results is all you need to define, contour and enhance your eyes. We've included everything you need to "go pro" with the perfect shades and tools to create that coveted contour look that everyone loves. You'll thank us later. Product details:

  • Voted "most valuable product" by Redbook magazine in 2006
  • Includes illustrated, step-by-step makeup lesson

I don't know how Benefit does it. They seem to consistently churn out products that they promise will look good on everyone and as far as I can tell they do! When I initially looked at the colors in this palette I thought “nothing too exciting here”. But once I put them on I changed my tune %100. I followed the directions it comes with and swept my eye with the dusty pink, filled in the crease of my eye with the darker brown and lined my eyes with the dark brown powder. It looks amazing! I never would have guessed that these colors could make my green/hazel eyes “pop” so much. I even got a compliment the first day I wore it. The kit also comes with an under-eye concealer (Boi-ing 02) which the directions say matches most skin tones (and it probably does) but I am the palest of the pale so it made me look a bit drawn. I'd expect it to match most other people though. Even though I usually wear yellow eyeshadow with black liner, I'm going to be wearing this new, softer look for quite a while.

$32 @ Benefit
