Benefit Rest and Reveal Challenge + Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, Benefit Canada asked me and several other Canadian beauty bloggers to take part in a Rest and Reveal Challenge. First, I was treated to the spoiling of a lifetime:  a glorious deep tissue massage from heaven… erm, I mean Four Seasons Toronto Spa. I can’t wait to go back and spend a whole day at the spa. Then, Benefit armed us with their award-winning They’re Real! Mascara, It’s Potent! Eye Cream and the new FakeUp Hydrating Concealer.

It’s Potent! Eye Cream ($39 for 14.2 g) is a wonderful eye cream. It has the texture of a balm, which works great to smooth out fine lines and really hydrate the under eye area without being greasy. This is my current favourite to wear under concealer, as it makes my concealer stick and last longer.

FakeUp Concealer in Medium ($29) is Benefit’s newest concealer, promising hydration and crease control. With It’s Potent! eye cream used as a base, this concealer is a winner. I prefer to apply it using my fingers instead of straight from the tube. Benefit doesn’t lie: this medium coverage concealer really is beautifully hydrating and comfortable to wear under the eyes.

They’re Real! Mascara ($29) is Benefit’s award-winning mascara that “lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates.” This mascara gives me lashes for days! It really delivers separation, length and volume, which is very apparent in my lower lashes in the photos below. The wet formula relaxes the curl from my lash curler slightly, so that’s unfortunate! But check out those lower lashes, eh?

I still remember my first Benefit product catalog from years back showing the products at work on one half of the model’s face. Do you remember those? In true Benefit fashion, I now reveal my before and after:
