Bright Lights Big City! For My Big City Beauties!

Benefit Cosmetics Bright Lights Big City!

Hello my lovelies!  So I had a rather exciting experience at Sephora the other day.  I found out that earlier this summer Benefit Cosmetics came out with a limited edition brightening kit that I feel was made just for my lighter skinned beauties. Bright Lights Big City! includes:

  • “That Gal” Face Primer
  • BADgal Blue Mascara
  • Eye Bright pencil
  • White leatherette travel mirror

All of these products are the perfect pick me up before heading out to happy hour, or simply just to run errands around town.  The face primer gives your skin that healthy glow so it can even be used alone.  The mascara isn’t a bright blue, but very subtle and is perfect for brightening up the whites of tired eyes.  My favorite one of the set is the Eye Bright pencil.  You can use it as a highlighter under the arch of your brows to really open up your eyes and even dot the inner and outer corners of your eyes to give them that bright-eyed look.  Remember to blend the pencil out lightly to give yourself a natural look and please keep in mind that this set is not the best choice for my darker toned beauties.

The entire set costs $48 but has a value of $82.  That’s such a great deal!  It’s a great little kit to take with you before heading out for the day, because you never know when you might need to give those peepers that last minute pick me up.

Until next time my lovelies…  xoxo

P.S.- Is anyone else as excited as I am that Sex In The City 2 is filming in NYC!?!  I saw some of the shoes that are in the movie and they are to die for!!!  Here’s a little quote I can relate to from our ever-fashionable Carrie Bradshaw:

“Men I may not know.  But shoes…  shoes I know!”
