You know the expression “If you love something, set it free?” This really has nothing to do with that. It’s just about things that come in sets - only in sets - and are not free. But are amazing!
I’ve been using a pan mystery product from Benefit for months now that goes on like a dream to create a majorly refreshed eye with no annoying glimmer, and/or acts as an amazing base for eye shadow. It’s sort of an ultra pale purple-pink that counteracts all evil, and it seems to have been designed by the makeup deities to work perfectly with the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush, which is the dreamiest undereye and upper-eye base coat apply-er ever (also great for concealer).
I just brush it all over the product and then apply over my lids, in the inner corners, and even under my eyes. Copiously. And it looks amazing. The above image is for dramatic purposes only, k?
I finally got around to looking these up to share them with you and lo and behold:
The pan is actually a product called Eye Bright that comes in a stick. But how could I use the brush with the stick?! Forget it. Get the pan version that comes in these (you can see it on the far right and far left) - both sets are awesome anyway. Peek-a-Bright-Eyes is that great all-you-need eye set for travel and the Perk-Up Artist concealer set is cool, assuming the main shade is the right one for your skin (it isn’t for mine, boo).
And the brush? It only comes in the Real Techniques Starter Kit! But that’s OK, because the set is so cheap and the brushes are so good. It’s worth it.
I mean, if you love something …
