Benefit Summer 2010 items

I picked up the new Benefit Summer 2010 catelog like beginning of the month, so here's some scans of the items.

Benefit 360 degree Stay Don't Stray eye primer
Their've got a new eye primer for concealers and eyeshoadows called 360 degree Stay Don't Stray (10mL/0.33 US fl oz). It comes in a pump bottle and the reason it's called 360 degree is because it can be used around the whole eye to help both eyeshadows and concealers stay put all day. It also has vitamin C and E to help fight the signs of aging.

/Benefit Ultra Shine Lipgloss
There's also a new range of lipglosses called Ultra Shines (5ml / 0.17 US fl ox). They come in 5 colours, spiked punch (juicy coral), dancing queen (watermelon pink), wild child (glimmering amethyst), back to the fuchsia (sparkling fuchsia) and foxy lady (diamond rose). It's meant to have an unbelievably glossy, reflective finish with a brush applicator.

Here's a image of their whole lip range:

I'm not a super fan of Benefit but it's nice to see what's new. I've tried some of their products and some were good, while others didn't work so well for me :P . What are some of your experiences?

  3. @Joanna, the bottle looks great too. colourful and interesting. :)

    @ning, I know what you mean about the price. I wish they weren't as expensive too.

  4. Bathina looks tempting. Weather is not nice here at the moment so hopefully this would help with brightening the skin.
