Benefit Girl Meets Pearl
Advantages: Gives my face a lovely glow
Disadvantages: A little tricky to begin with
I'm one of those people who hates cheap make up. I really don't see the point in paying for something which isn't going to last two minutes or something that will come off really quickly, which is what I find with any cheap brand of make up. Luckily, my sister knows this so for Christmas, she bought me Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. Although I have never used Benefit make up before, it has a fantastic reputation so I was extremely excited to get this as a gift.
Girl Meets Pearl is a liquid pearl for the face and because I use regular face pearls all of the time, I was curious to see what the difference would be. The product comes in a container that a little bit smaller than my hand and holds 12.0ml of the actual liquid. The container itself is lovely. At the top is a shiny pink cap and the bottom is twistable in the same colour. The middle of the container is pink and purple with a picture of a bridge, a city and the night sky.
When it came to using Girl Meets Pearl for the first time, I have to say that I was a little bit confused. When I took the cap off and began to twist the bottom in order to get the product to come out, nothing happened for a long time. I had to twist for quite a long time before the liquid began to appear through the tiny square holes. Infact, a lot more liquid came out than I was expecting so I had to waste some of it when I began to use it.
The liquid itself is a pinky brown colour with a medium consistency. I had already put the majority of my make up on already so I decided to try to use this as a cheek highlighter on top of my blusher. The effect was wonderful. Girl Meets Pearl gave my cheeks a healthy glow but didn't change the colour of my blusher too much. I don't think I would use this everyday as I know it wasn't cheap (although I don't know the price) but I would use it for nights out to give my face a lovely glow.
As I wont be using this everyday, I can see the product lasting quite a while and for the effects it gives, I think it's great. I will definitely be buying this again for myself when I do run out.
Summary: A great first product to use from Benefit
