Review: High Beam Luminescent + ChaCha Tint Cheek Stain

Hello lovely!

Time has been flying by in what feels like a blink of an eye and I have missed blogging to bits, so with the time I have in my hands, I'll try to entertain you as much as possible!

Reviews are my ultimate go-to's when I'm on the hunt for new products, so I'm here to review two of Benefit's top sellers, the High Beam Luminescent and the ChaCha Tint Cheek Stain. I purchased the TropiCORAL Lip and Cheek kit a while back and I would recommend getting a kit if you're interested in the Benefit products, just because you get several items that will most probably last a while and for the price of a full size version of one of the products you get in the kit, maybe even cheaper depending on the kit. 

High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer by Benefit

This little beauty has been raved about by so many bloggers, YouTubers and beauty addicts, so when I saw it in the TropiCORAL kit, I just had to get it. High Beam is actually my first highlighter, but I'm happy to add it to my makeup collection, as well as my FOTD every now and then. First of all, how could a girly girl like me not fall for pink liquid with a sprinkle of shimmer in a Nail Polish pot? I cannot resist Benefit's packaging for some reason, and when the product is actually good, it's such a bonus! The formula in this is so amazing, working as a highlighting stain, it lasts all day and gives such a pretty glow that makes all the difference. It's easy to blend once you get the hang of it. I personally like blending it with my fingers rather than a brush because I think it gives my face a better glow. Also, the way you apply it on your cheeks completely changes how it turns out. I would repurchase this, but I think the full size is a bit too much so I'll be looking out for it in another kit!

ChaCha Tint Cheek Stain by Benefit

Since it took me a few seconds to take the first photo, I didn't blend as soon as applied, so it stained my skin.

I originally wanted to try Benetint which is a rosy red stain because well, I'm not a daredevil when it comes to colourful makeup, but to my surprise, the ChaCha tint has made it's way into a lot of my daily choices of makeup. I love the coral tint it gives my face, and how it enhances all my other features one way or another. It does last all day, but the only thing I don't like is how fast you have to be to blend it all in, otherwise it stains your skin and let's just say that appealing look you were going for is no longer appealing.. As it is waterproof, once it stains your skin, all the makeup on your face has to go as well to get it off. But, once you get the hang of it, it's an amazing product and I really like it. Just be warned if you're using it for the first time.

And that is all! I'm sorry this ended up to be a really long post, but if anything, it proves how much I miss blogging!

Do you have any favourite highlighters or cheek stains? What are they?

Until next time,
