10 Highligher and Bronzer Duo by Benefit

I'm convinced that I would buy one of everything that Benefit sells. I have bought just about every kit and compact and absolutely love them. I bought this at the end of last summer and kind of forgot about it, sitting at the bottom of my makeup bag. However, I recently pulled it out and promptly remembered why I love it so!

10 is fantastic as a summertime-glow-blush. I apply it after an all over bronzer, and I use it on my cheekbones. It really requires no thought - just swipe the (included) brush over the product, half with the light pink and half with the bronze. Turn the brush so that the highlighter is on top and apply right on the cheekbones. This is buildable color, but I think you'll find the effect will happen without an overload of color. It's very subtle, but glowing.

This is a perfect blush for when you've gotten your (fake) tan on, you've applied some bronzing mist (more on that later), and you're using sheer shimmers on your eyes (like Chanel's new summer colors). It gives you an excellent sculpted look without being overly difficult to use.

Benefit's 10. $28.00

Sadly, this does not show up on me. I was ready to love it when it was first released.
