Instruction for Use:How To use Benefit Perfect 10 Bronzing & Highlighting Face Powder Duo
My experience with Benefit Perfect 10 Bronzing & Highlighting Face Powder Duo
- Packaging: This bronzer-highlighter duo comes in a nice thick cardboard box packaging. Both the shades are together in a single pan as opposed to being separated in 2 pans. It comes along with a brush (as seen below) and an instruction booklet (shown above). As with all Benefit brushes, I find this one also very harsh but I have to admit its very useful to apply both in one go.
- Staying Power: The staying power of this is pretty satisfactory. Initially on application, one would be able to see a lovely sheen on the face thanks to the tiny shimmer particles. Within 1.5-2hrs, the shimmer fades off from the highlighter. This doesn’t look bad, but I personally feel it takes away from the entire look.
- Ease of Usage: Yes, this duo is really easy to use and newbies to contouring will definitely find this a boon. Good for beginners and gr8 for experts as well.
- Cost & Availability: This is pretty expensive for a bronzer/highlighter combo but I do think its worth it considering the amount of product you get and the quality. Of the product. Its not available in India though, so one would have to contact our relatives & friends abroad for this beauty.
- Texture & Pigmentation: At first sight, this duo tends to look like a huge shimmer block. I did think that on swatching I would get nothing but dense shimmer. But that’s not so. Both these shades are well pigmented and does give off good solid colors.
My take on the product:
I use this during parties or night outings. Its gives a fantastic golden sheen to my cheekbones and makes them look well sculpted which is a look I die for thanks to my chubby cheeks
I use this with my ‘V’ Brush so that I can blend well and get the perfect contoured look. How would you wear this?
