Benefit It Stick
Advantages: Easy to apply, would fit in very small handbags
Disadvantages: Can be a bit cakey if you use too much
I am completely clueless when it comes to cosmetics, the only thing I know a lot about is nail polish. So sometimes I treat myself to expensive items and other times I love a bargain, I found this free with glamour magazine and I know it's a fairly expensive brand so thought for the £2.00 magazine cost it was a good investment.
I think this product retails for about £15.00 depending on where you get it from.
The free sample is a full sized sample, which is another bonus, and it is about 10cm long and as wide as a crayon. Perfect handbag size for a night out.
The stick itself is quite simple looking with a silver body and a black lid, that seems very secure so it wont fall off and cause you to draw all over the inside of your handbag.
When I first looked at this I didn't think it would be be very good as it seemed quite a hard solid product and I didn't fancy having to press really hard on my skin to apply it, but it was the complete opposite, you can just lightly glide over blemishes and dark circles and it blends in really easily with your finger.
I have no idea about the shades and things, but the one I got free seems to suit my skin tone really well. it hides blemishes easily and makes my dark eye circles seem a lot lighter.
The only downside I have found to this is if you get a bit eager and use too much or are to heavy handed it can look a bit cakey and can be a bit hard to blend in, but as long as you are delicate and apply sparingly you should be fine.
I think this will last me absolutely ages. It doesn't take a lot to cover up bits and bobs on your face that make you feel self conscious, so for the £2.00 magazine price it was well worth it. It might still be available as a free gift so I would highly recommend buying it even just to try the product out.
A great concealer. I would even pay full price for it again.
Summary: A great product. Bargain if you can get the free sample with Glamour Magazine.
