Countdown To Love – Days 1-4

You might remember that I ordered the Benefit Cosmetics Countdown To Love advent calendar a few months ago. I wanted to share with you what has been behind doors number 1 through 4.

Countdown To Love - Day 1-4

1. CORALista

Full Size: 0.28 oz, $28
Sample Size: 0.1 oz, $10 value

“A warm coral-pink powder that warms up your complexion.”

This blush looks really pretty. The color is pretty light which will be great for my fair skin.

2. Stay Don’t Stray in Light/Medium

Full Size: 0.33 fl oz, $26
Sample Size: 0.08 fl oz, $6.30

“A primer for concealers and eye shadows.”

This is my second sample of this primer but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. I already have a bunch of other eye shadow primers that I’d like to use up first.

3. It’s Potent! Eye Cream

Full Size: 0.5 oz, $34
Sample Size: 0.1 oz, $6.80

“A brightening eye cream to help fade dark circles.”

I received a sample of this eye cream in one of my past Birchboxes and I really like it. It’s on the thicker side and feel very nourishing but at the same time it absorbs well without any sticky residue.

4. Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Dandelion

Full Size: 0.5 fl oz, $16
Sample Size: 0.22 fl oz, $7.04 value

“A silky, plush gloss that glides onto lips.”

This lip gloss isn’t sticky at all and it smells great. It’s very sparkly and gives just a hint of peach color. I think it would be great to layer on top of lipstick for an evening look but because it’s so sparkly I wouldn’t wear it during the day.

I really like my first few advent surprises and can’t wait to see what’s behind the next door.

  1. I’m so jealous! I wanted to buy that but I put it off because I already spent my budget for the month at that time, and by the time I was ready to buy, it was sold out everywhere!
